Even if carbon dioxide emissions came to a sudden halt, the carbon dioxide already in Earth's atmosphere could continue to warm our planet for hundreds of years, according to Princeton University-led research published in the journal Nature Climate Change.

Ice Sheet Loss at Both Poles Increasing

An international team of experts supported by NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) has combined data from multiple satellites and aircraft to produce the most comprehensive and accurate assessment to date of ice sheet losses in Greenland and Antarctica and their contributions to sea level rise.

NASA TechPort

"During this initial phase of TechPort's rollout, NASA users will only be able to access the website through the nasa.gov domain, and not from iPads or computers off the NASA network. The Office of the Chief Technologist will seek employee feedback on the website, and plans to make TechPort publicly available in the future. Users will be able to browse, search, track, analyze and report on the portfolio of technology investments being pursued at program and project levels, with the resulting benefits being the easy access to information about programs and project results.

Technology project data in TechPort was collected through an agency-wide data call for technology project information. This call was conducted earlier this year as part of the development of the Strategic Space Technology Investment Plan. Program and project personnel entered technology project data into TechPort, which was validated by NASA mission directorate/office representatives. Moving forward, TechPort will provide a venue for data owners to easily update technology project information, as well as the tools to conduct analysis and reporting on that data." More

"Using the same technology that NASA uses in space suits, our proprietary blend of fibers, "Apollo" will literally control your body temperature. Imagine you're outside on a hot day. Apollo uses Phase-change Materials (PCMs) to pull heat away from your body and actually store it in the shirt - like a battery. This way, when you get back into your AC'ed office, the shirt will release the heat back to you and keep your skin at the temperature it should be at. The difference is noticeable, and can change your day. Ministry of Supply is literally bringing this technology down from space." More at Kickstarter

Are your bones getting stronger or weaker? Right now, it's hard to know. Scientists at Arizona State University and NASA are taking on this medical challenge by developing and applying a technique that originated in the Earth sciences.

Wearable Technology From NASA

International Space Station Wearable Technology - Future Spinoff, Commercial Space Watch (Video)

"The research program to make the wearable technology shown here engaged students from the University of Minnesota and could have future commercial applications. In these videos NASA Public Affairs Officer Lynnette Madison talks with Human Interface Engineer Cory Simon about wearable technology containing sensors, displays and controls to assist future astronauts and augment their capability to perform more elaborate and complex tasks and with students of the University of Minnesota."

Scientists at the Goddard Institute for Space Science found that 2009 was tied as the second hottest year ever recorded.
