Celebrating 60 Years of Groundbreaking U.S. Space Science

Sixty years ago, the U.S. launched Explorer 1, rocketing into the Space Age.

Explorer 1: The Beginning of American Space Science

Sixty years ago, the hopes of Cold War America soared into the night sky as a rocket lofted skyward above Cape Canaveral, a soon-to-be-famous barrier island off the Florida coast.

NASA Goddard Year in Review - 2017

A look back at 2017 at NASA Goddard.

A Day in the Life of NASA's Voyagers

Out beyond 10 billion miles away from Earth, there is no day and night. Time and space are fathomless and our Sun is a distant point of starlight — a faint reminder of the home the Voyagers left behind 40 years ago.

NASA’s Van Allen Probes Survive Extreme Radiation Five Years On

The two Van Allen Probe spacecraft have been orbiting in the harmful radiation belts for five years.

Goddard Hosts 8th Annual Science Jamboree for Employees

The Goddard Office of Communications and the Goddard Sciences and Exploration Directorate produced the eighth annual Science Jamboree on Wednesday, July 12, 2017.

Goddard Welcomes Nearly 450 Summer Interns

Almost 450 interns will complete their "10-week job interview" at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center this summer.

NASA Mission Uncovers Dance of Electrons in Space

NASA's MMS mission studies how electrons spiral and dive around the planet in a complex dance dictated by the magnetic and electric fields, and a new study revealed a bizarre new type of motion exhibited by these electrons.

Sweet 16: Goddard Teams Fly Extraordinary Number of Payloads in 2017

Sixteen different missions whose instruments and components were developed at least in part with funding from the center’s Internal Research and Development, or IRAD, program have either launched or are scheduled to launch this year aboard commercial launch vehicles, sounding rockets, balloons, and high-altitude research aircraft.

Relativistic Electrons Uncovered with NASA’s Van Allen Probes

New observations from the Van Allen Probes show that the fastest, most energetic electrons in the inner radiation belt are not present as much of the time as previously thought — good news for spacecraft flying in the region.

NASA Invites Media to 55th Annual Robert H. Goddard Memorial Symposium

Media are invited to meet science and engineering leaders at the 55th Robert H. Goddard Memorial Symposium in Greenbelt, Maryland, on March 8-9, 2017.

NASA Reveals the Unknown in 2016

In 2016, NASA drove advances in technology, science, aeronautics and space exploration that enhanced the world’s knowledge, innovation, and stewardship of Earth.

NASA Finds Unusual Origins of High-Energy Electrons

High above Earth's surface, our magnetic field constantly deflects incoming ultra-fast particles from the sun. New THEMIS mission results show the acceleration of these particles can occur farther from Earth than previously thought, prompting more questions about what causes the speed-up.

NASA Unveils New Public Web Portal for Research Results

Public access to NASA-funded research data now is just a click away, with the launch of a new agency public access portal.

Industry, Government, Academia Seek to Sustain Women in STEM
