Each year, NASA scientists, engineers, and developers create software packages to manage space missions, test spacecraft, and analyze the petabytes of data produced by agency research satellites. As the agency innovates for the benefit of humanity, many of these programs are now downloadable and free of charge through NASA’s Software Catalog.
In the early hours of July 15, 2023, a wildfire broke out on La Palma, the most northwesterly of the Canary Islands.
The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image of smoke streaming south from the blaze that afternoon.
NASA leadership, including climate experts, will be available at 4 p.m. EDT on Thursday, July 20, at the agency’s headquarters in Washington to shed light on recent extreme weather events, and discuss how NASA research and data is enabling climate solutions.
NASA Space Apps, in collaboration with NASA Transform to Open Science (TOPS), is proud to announce the 2023 NASA International Space Apps Challenge theme: “Explore Open Science Together.” This year’s theme celebrates the benefits and successes created through the equitable and open sharing of knowledge and data. Registration is open through Oct 8.
In a first-of-its-kind study, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center scientists used the NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) Discover supercomputer to combine ocean data and modeling to assess how recent heatwave events affected phytoplankton populations in the open Pacific Ocean.
Using forecasts run on a our Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) supercomputer, scientists from US agencies and universities; and the Korea National University of Transportation assessed the ability of the GEOS-S2S-2 forecasting system to predict atmospheric and land surface conditions throughout the High Mountain Asia region.
The final pair of NASA’s TROPICS (Time-Resolved Observations of Precipitation structure and storm Intensity with a Constellation of Smallsats) are in orbit after successfully launching at 11:46 p.m. EDT, May 25, (3:46 p.m. NZST Friday, May 26th), completing the constellation.
After successfully launching the first pair of small satellites earlier this month from New Zealand, NASA and Rocket Lab are now targeting no earlier than 1:30 a.m. EDT Monday, May 22 (5:30 p.m. NZST), to launch the second pair of storm tracking CubeSats into orbit.
Awe-inspiring NASA visuals combined with the might of a live symphonic orchestra last week in “Cosmic Cycles,” a multimedia collaboration among the agency’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, the National Philharmonic, and composer Henry Dehlinger.
After the previous launch target date changed due to weather conditions in New Zealand, NASA and Rocket Lab are now targeting 9 p.m. EDT Sunday, May 7, (1 p.m. Monday, May 8, New Zealand Standard Time), to launch two storm tracking CubeSats into orbit.
Vice President Kamala Harris and Republic of Korea (ROK) President Yoon Suk Yeol will visit NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, on Tuesday, April 25, to see firsthand the agency’s climate change work. NASA Deputy Administrator Pam Melroy and Goddard Center Director Makenzie Lystrup will join them on tour.
In celebration of Earth Day, it's important to recognize the role of open science in protecting our planet and advancing NASA's research efforts. Through initiatives like NASA's Transform to Open Science (TOPS), researchers can collaborate and share data, promoting transparency and scientific integrity.
