Can Data Save Dolphins? How Scientists Are Using NASA Data to Study Link Between Solar Storms and Animal Beachings

12.08.2017
The age-old mystery of why otherwise healthy dolphins, whales and porpoises get stranded along coasts worldwide deepens.

All Missions On Board for NASA Heliophysics Research

11.27.2017
In a new type of collaborative study, scientists combined data from 16 separate NASA spacecraft to understand how a particle phenomenon in the magnetic environment, called a substorm, around Earth occurs.

New NASA Mission Concept Aimed at Studying Why Planets Lose their Atmospheres

11.14.2017
A team of NASA scientists want to use Earth as a laboratory to understand how planets lose their atmospheres and has proposed a mission that the agency recently selected as one of five for further consideration as a possible NASA Explorer mission.

NASA’s ICON Explores the Boundary Between Earth and Space

10.18.2017
On Dec. 8, 2017, NASA launches the Ionospheric Connection Explorer, or ICON, a low-Earth orbiting satellite that will give us new information about how Earth's atmosphere interacts with near-Earth space.

Small Collisions Make Big Impact on Mercury’s Thin Atmosphere

09.29.2017
Mercury, our smallest planetary neighbor, has very little to call an atmosphere, but it does have a strange weather pattern: morning micro-meteor showers.

NASA, ESA Spacecraft Track Solar Storm Through Space

08.15.2017
Using seven spacecraft, along with computer models, scientists have pieced together the journey of a coronal mass ejection from the Sun outward to Mars, Comet 67P, Jupiter and even the New Horizons spacecraft now beyond Pluto.

Two Weeks in the Life of a Sunspot

08.04.2017
During its 13-day trip across the face of the sun, a sunspot recently put on a show for NASA's sun-watching satellites, producing several solar flares, a coronal mass ejection and a solar energetic particle event.

NASA Mission Surfs through Waves in Space to Understand Space Weather

07.24.2017
NASA's Van Allen Probes have observed a new population of space sound waves, called plasmaspheric hiss, which are important in removing high-energy particles from around Earth that can damage satellites.

Goddard Hosts 8th Annual Science Jamboree for Employees

07.13.2017
The Goddard Office of Communications and the Goddard Sciences and Exploration Directorate produced the eighth annual Science Jamboree on Wednesday, July 12, 2017.

NASA's Van Allen Probes Spot Man-Made Barrier Shrouding Earth

05.17.2017
Humans have long been shaping Earth's landscape, but now scientists know that we also can shape our near-space environment with radio communications, which have been found to interact with particles in space.

Space Weather Events Linked to Human Activity

05.17.2017
Human activities, like nuclear tests and radio transmissions, have been changing near-Earth space and weather, and have created artificial radiation belts, damaged satellites and induced auroras.

NASA Aims to Create First-Ever Space-Based Sodium Lidar to Study Poorly Understood Mesosphere

05.16.2017
