NASA’s newest podcast is taking listeners on an adventure to explore the wonders of Earth and help unravel the mysteries of the universe.

NASA Science Keeps the Lights On

Across NASA’s many missions, thousands of scientists, engineers, and other experts and professionals all over the country are doing what they do best, but now from home offices and via video conferencing. With most personnel supporting missions remotely to keep onsite staff at a minimal level in response to COVID-19, the Agency is moving ahead strongly with everything from space exploration to using our technology and innovation to help inform policy makers.

Statement on NASA Goddard’s Coronavirus Prep Actions

Goddard has canceled all non-mission-essential visits to its facilities. Goddard also is closing its Visitor Centers at Greenbelt and at Wallops Flight Facility, Virginia.

NASA Highlights Solar Mission, Jupiter Cyclone at AGU Meeting

NASA researchers will present new findings on a wide range of Earth and space science topics at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), Dec. 9-13 in San Francisco.

Ten Highlights From NASA’s Van Allen Probes Mission

After seven years of operations, and upon finally running out of propellant, the second of the twin Van Allen Probes spacecraft will be shut down on Friday, Oct. 18, 2019.

Artemis, meet ARTEMIS: Pursuing Sun Science at the Moon

Two robotic spacecraft orbiting the Moon today were initially known as ARTEMIS.

Sun Science has a Bright Future on the Moon

The Moon isn't just for lunar scientists. As NASA advances its Artemis mission to land astronauts on the Moon by 2024, here are five reasons heliophysicists — who study the Sun-Earth connection — can't wait to get on board.

Streaks in Aurora Found to Map Features in Earth’s Radiation Environment

A special kind of streaked aurora has been found to track disturbances in near-Earth space from the ground.

How NASA Will Protect Astronauts From Space Radiation at the Moon

Space radiation is a critical factor for astronaut safety as they venture to the Moon. NASA is exploring a variety of techniques and technology to mitigate different types of radiation during space travel.

First of Two Van Allen Probes Spacecraft Ceases Operations

On July 19 mission operators turned off one of the two Van Allen Probes spacecraft. Originally slated for a two-year mission, the Van Allen Probes launched in 2012 and gathered unprecedented data on Earth's radiation belts. As expected, the spacecraft is now out of fuel. It will re-enter the atmosphere and burn up safely in about 15 years.

NASA’s SET Mission to Study Satellite Protection Is Ready for Launch

NASA’s Space Environment Testbeds, or SET, will launch on its mission to study how to better protect satellites in space. SET studies space radiation and how it affects spacecraft and electronics in orbit.

NASA Scientist Receives Patent for Innovative Technique for Measuring Space Weather Phenomena

A NASA expert in space-weather phenomena has won a patent for an idea that, if fully implemented, would create the world’s largest scientific instrument for detecting a condition that has caused power outages in the past.

NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center Celebrates 60 Years

On May 1, 1959, the Beltsville Space Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, was renamed NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in honor of Robert H. Goddard, widely considered the father of modern rocketry. Thus began a 60-year boom in science and technological innovation.

Peter Schuck - A Physics in Action Kind of Guy

Peter Schuck is a "physics in action" kind of guy.

NASA Invites Media to 57th Annual Robert H. Goddard Memorial Symposium

Media are invited to the 57th Robert H. Goddard Memorial Symposium on March 20-21.

What Scientists Found After Sifting Through Dust in the Solar System

Two recent studies report discoveries of dust rings in the inner solar system: a dust ring at Mercury's orbit, and a group of never-before-detected asteroids co-orbiting with Venus, supplying the dust in Venus' orbit.

NASA’s Van Allen Probes Begin Final Phase of Exploration in Earth's Radiation Belts

Two NASA spacecraft have been orbiting Earth for years, flying through a hazardous zone of charged particles called the Van Allen radiation belts. Now, they're starting a new and final phase in their exploration.

In Solar System’s Symphony, Earth’s Magnetic Field Drops the Beat

Inside Earth's magnetic bubble, scientists have long been listening in on space sounds created by various electromagnetic waves, and now they've found one that booms like a drum.

Charting a Course for Astronaut Safety as NASA Launches to the Moon and to Mars

In the next decade, NASA aims to launch humankind toward the Moon and on to Mars — a monumental step in crewed space travel requiring navigating the hazards of the heliosphere.

NASA Brings its Science and Supercomputing Advances to SC18

From designing rocket launch pad components and safer rotorcraft to improving flood and drought forecasts to modeling the formation of planetary disks, NASA will highlight supercomputing advances at SC18, the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis, Nov. 12 to 15 in Dallas.

NASA Goddard’s Science Jamboree Connects Disciplines and Interns

The Goddard Science Jamboree provides an opportunity for interns and senior scientists alike to learn more about the science happening in other disciplines in one room.

NASA’s New Dellingr Spacecraft Baselined for Pathfinding CubeSat Mission to Van Allen Belts

A new CubeSat mission — GTOSat — will do more than monitor the environmentally forbidding radiation belts that encircle Earth.

2020 Decadal Survey Missions: At a Glance

Any telescope that reaches the launch pad in the 2030s likely will look much different than the concepts four teams are currently studying to inform the 2020 Decadal Survey for Astrophysics, but the studies do offer a roadmap.

NASA Teams Study the Agency’s Future in Astrophysics; Tackle Formidable Technology Challenges

As in past decades, the agency won’t make that decision in a vacuum or without understanding the technical obstacles, which are formidable.
