Chandra's Extraordinary Universe

In ten years of operation, the Chandra X-ray Observatory has transformed our view of the high-energy universe with its ability to make exquisite X-ray images of star clusters, supernova remnants, galactic eruptions, and collisions between clusters of galaxies.

Best of The Beautiful Universe

In its first decade of exploration, Chandra has expanded our view of the universe with its unrivaled ability to create high-resolution X-ray images of cosmic phenomena.

Space Rocks

Space Center Houston was the scene Jan. 6 of a special presentation by former NASA astronaut Scott Parazynski to Space Shuttle Endeavour Commander George Zamka. Parazynski gave a moon rock and a rock from Mt. Everest to Zamka, commander of the upcoming shuttle mission STS-130. Zamka and his crew will carry the rocks with them on their Feburary mission to the International Space Station as they deliver the stations Tranquility module. The rocks will be displayed aboard the station. Parazynski carried the Apollo 11 lunar sample on a climb to the summit of Mt. Everest last May during which he also gathered the Everest rock

The Sun causes space weather - but Earth's weather could be responsible too.

President Says, Educate and Innovate!

President Obama spoke at a special White House ceremony to honor educators from across the country for their excellence in mathematics, science teaching and mentoring. The event was part of the Presidents Educate to Innovate campaign to boost student achievement in STEM subjects: science, technology, engineering and math.

Among other related initiatives, NASA will partner with companies, non-profits, and states, to launch the Summer of Innovation. The pilot enrichment program will substantially enhance STEM learning opportunities for students during the summer, with an emphasis on broadening participation of underrepresented groups.

Space shuttle Endeavour was moved Jan. 6 from the Vehicle Assembly Building to Launch Pad 39A at NASAs Kennedy Space Center in Florida for its STS-130 mission to the International Space Station. The move is referred to as a "rollout."

Endeavour is targeted to launch Feb. 7. During its 13-day mission, the shuttles six astronauts will deliver a third connecting module, the Tranquility node, to the space station.

What is gravity? Find out about the balance between gravity and inertia that keeps the International Space Station in orbit. Learn why astronauts "float" in space and how the space shuttle has to slow down in order to come back to Earth.

NASA - Holiday Dance of the Moons

Like sugar plum fairies in The Nutcracker, the moons of Saturn performed a celestial ballet before the eyes of NASAs Cassini spacecraft. The new movies frame the moons silent dance against the majestic sweep of the planets rings and show as many as four moons gliding around one another.

Celebrating Ariane's 30th Birthday

On 24 December 1979 Ariane made its first flight from French Guyane marking the beginning of 30 years of success and giving Europe a guaranteed independant access to Space. With Ariane ESA could develop its own programmes in many different domains: Telecommunications, Earth Observation, Science and Exploration. With Ariane Europe was the pionneer in the civil launch space market, with the creation of Arianespace, which is now the world leading space transportation company.
