Flying over and tromping through watery landscapes along the East Coast, working alongside NASA scientists, and recording measurements about the air that they’re flying through – these are not the usual experiences for an undergraduate student. For the 2023 participants in NASA’s SARP East program, it was part of a summer they won't forget.
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.
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.
With a light flick of the conductor’s baton and a unified breath from each member, the band started playing the two deep and ominous notes easily recognized as the theme of “Jaws.” The sounds echoed off the walls of the acoustics chamber at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
They’re small, but they’re mighty. From producing oxygen we breathe to soaking up carbon we emit to feeding fish we eat, tiny phytoplankton are a crucial part of ocean ecosystems and essential to life as we know it on Earth. To give us a new view of these extraordinary aquatic organisms, NASA is launching a satellite in early 2024.
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.
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.
Vice President Kamala Harris and Republic of Korea (ROK) President Yoon Suk Yeol saw firsthand how NASA studies climate change during a visit to NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, this afternoon.
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.
NASA has been working to better understand our home planet from the unique vantage point of space since the first TIROS satellites launched in the 1960s. Today, with more than two dozen Earth-observing satellites and instruments, it’s clearer than ever that our planet is an interconnected system.
The international Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) mission – led by NASA and the French space agency Centre National d’Études Spatiales (CNES) – has sent back some of its first glimpses of water on the planet’s surface, showing ocean currents like the Gulf Stream in unprecedented detail.
The latest edition of NASA’s Spinoff publication features dozens of new commercialized technologies that use the agency’s technology, research, and/or expertise to benefit people around the globe. It also includes a section highlighting technologies of tomorrow.
An agile team of computer experts at NASA Goddard helps scientists collaborate and develop Open Science projects in astrophysics, Earth science, biology, and heliophysics by creating the SMCE managed cloud environment for science.
A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launches with the Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) spacecraft onboard, Friday, Dec. 16, 2022, from Space Launch Complex 4E at Vandenberg Space Force Base in California.
