NASA is using a simple but effective technology called Laser Retroreflective Arrays (LRAs) to determine the locations of lunar landers more accurately. They will be attached to most of the landers from United States companies as part of NASA’s Commercial Lunar Payload Service (CLPS) initiative. LRAs are inexpensive, small, and lightweight, allowing future lunar orbiters […]
The former OSIRIS-REx spacecraft sets off on a journey to study asteroid Apophis and take advantage of the asteroid’s 2029 flyby of Earth, the likes of which hasn’t happened since the dawn of recorded history.
A NASA study expands the search for life beyond our solar system by indicating that 17 exoplanets (worlds outside our solar system) could have oceans of liquid water, an essential ingredient for life, beneath icy shells. Water from these oceans could occasionally erupt through the ice crust as geysers. The science team calculated the amount […]
At SC23: The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis in Denver, Colorado, NASA Goddard scientists and technologists presented 12 research projects in NASA’s popular research exhibit.

A sounding rocket launched from Poker Flat Research Range in Fairbanks, Alaska, Nov. 8, 2023, carrying NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center's DISSIPATION mission.
The next International Observe the Moon Night will take place on October 21, 2023. Watch this space for information about this year's NASA TV broadcast and telescope live streams!
NASA’s Lucy spacecraft is preparing for its first close-up look at an asteroid. On Nov. 1, it will fly by asteroid Dinkinesh and test its instruments in preparation for visits in the next decade to multiple Trojan asteroids that circle the Sun in the same orbit as Jupiter.
Astronomers using data from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope have identified carbon dioxide in a specific region on the icy surface of Jupiters moon Europa.
The American Astronomical Society awarded the 2023 Alexander Prize to Amy Simon, Senior Scientist for Planetary Atmospheres Research at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
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.
Harnessing NASA MESSENGER spacecraft data and NASA Center for Climate Simulation (NCCS) cloud computing resources, scientists from NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and collaborating organizations have created the first high-resolution topographic map of Mercury’s south pole.
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.
NASA invites media to the U.S. Army’s Dugway Proving Ground about 80 miles southwest of Salt Lake City on Thursday, July 20, before the agency’s first asteroid sample collected in space is returned to Earth.
NASA’s MAVEN (Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN) mission acquired stunning views of Mars in two ultraviolet images taken at different points along our neighboring planet’s orbit around the Sun.
On April 26, 2023, NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft acquired 10 images around HAKUTO-R Mission 1 lunar lander's landing site with its Narrow Angle Cameras.
Goddard planetary scientist Sander Goossens uses "remote learning" - that is, satellite data, like radio tracking data, image data, or altimetry - to study planetary bodies in our solar system.
To better prepare NASA to leap into an exciting future leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning, NASA’s Science Mission Directorate and Goddard's Engineering and Technology Directorate hosted the Third SMD and ETD Workshop on A.I. and Data Science: Leaping Toward Our Future Goals, on March 21–23 at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
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 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 selected ten researchers from institutions across the U.S. to join the Science Working Team of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s Martian Moons eXploration (MMX) mission as NASA-supported participating scientists.
A planetary scientist, Gordon Chin also dabbles in watercolors, drawings and mix media artworks in his spare time while surrounded by a ceramic and studio art glass collection.
Some of the asteroids NASA’s Lucy mission will visit are still more than 330 million miles away from the spacecraft — over three times the average distance between Earth and the Sun — but despite the great distance and the comparatively small sizes, Lucy caught views of four of its targets in late March.
When a scientist found herself inside a cave beneath the Mauna Loa volcano, she felt like she had entered another world. She may as well have been on Mars, and that's precisely why she had come.
