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.

Mars Mission Sheds Light on Habitability of Distant Planets

Insights from NASA's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution, or MAVEN, mission about the loss of the Red Planet's atmosphere can help scientists understand the habitability of rocky planets orbiting other stars.

NASA’s MAVEN Mission Finds Mars Has a Twisted Tail

Mars has an invisible magnetic “tail” that is twisted by interaction with the solar wind, according to new research using data from NASA’s MAVEN spacecraft.

Solar Eruptions Could Electrify Martian Moons

Powerful solar eruptions could electrically charge areas of the Martian moon Phobos to hundreds of volts, presenting a complex electrical environment that could possibly affect sensitive electronics carried by future robotic explorers, according to a new NASA study.

Large Solar Storm Sparks Global Aurora and Doubles Radiation Levels on the Martian Surface

An unexpectedly strong blast from the Sun hit Mars this month, observed by NASA missions in orbit and on the surface.

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.

1,000 Days in Orbit: MAVEN’s Top 10 Discoveries at Mars

A Whole New Jupiter: First Science Results from NASA’s Juno Mission

Early science results from NASA’s Juno mission portray the largest planet in our solar system as a complex, turbulent world that is so surprising, it's really a whole new Jupiter.

NASA's MAVEN Reveals Mars Has Metal in its Atmosphere

Mars has metal ions high in its atmosphere, according to new results from NASA's MAVEN spacecraft. The metal ions can reveal previously invisible activity in the mysterious electrically charged upper atmosphere (ionosphere) of Mars.

NASA's MAVEN Reveals Most of Mars' Atmosphere Was Lost to Space

Solar wind and radiation are responsible for stripping the Martian atmosphere, transforming Mars from a planet that could have supported life billions of years ago into a frigid desert world, according to new results from NASA's MAVEN spacecraft.

NASA Selects CubeSat, SmallSat Mission Concept Studies

NASA selected ten studies under the Planetary Science Deep Space SmallSat Studies (PSDS3) program, to develop mission concepts to investigate Venus, Earth’s moon, asteroids, Mars and the outer planets. Two of the 10 are led by researchers at Goddard.

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 Orbiter Steers Clear of Mars Moon Phobos

NASA’s MAVEN spacecraft performed a previously unscheduled maneuver this week to avoid a collision in the near future with Mars’ moon Phobos.

NASA Study Finds Solar Storms Could Spark Soils at Moon's Poles

Powerful solar storms can charge up the soil in frigid, permanently shadowed regions near the lunar poles, and may possibly produce "sparks" that could vaporize and melt the soil, perhaps as much as meteoroid impacts, according to new NASA-funded research.

Gina DiBraccio - A Maven of MAVEN and a Fitness Buff

Gina DiBraccio is a research scientist who works on the MAVEN mission and is also a fitness buff and a travel aficiondo.
