This movie combines infrared images of the surface of Chi Cygni, obtained with IOTA, with visual brightness measurements provided by the American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO). Chi Cygni demonstrates a 408-day-period of expanding and dimming, followed by contracting and brightening. Credit: Sylvestre Lacour, Observatoire de Paris.

A behind the scenes look at the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project located at McMoons at NASA Ames. Get a quick overview of the project followed by a tour of the facility and technology being used to restore images from the Lunar Orbiter spacecraft at a resolution never before seen. Rediscover what was considered to be lost and what will help future explorers of the moon.

NASA's space shuttle Atlantis, STS-129, lifted-off today at 2:28 p.m. ET on an 11-day mission to service the the International Space Station (ISS).

Orbiting the Earth on the International Space Station, Canadian astronaut Robert Thirsk shares his thoughts this Remembrance Day.

On Sunday, November 1 at 8:50 p.m. eastern standard time the European Space Agency PRoject for OnBoard Autonomy (Proba-2) satellite will be launched along with the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) satellite on a Russian Rockot launcher from the Plesetsk cosmodrome in northern Russia. This video shows the arrival of the atellites in Russia and their integration with the Rockot launcher.

ESA SMOS Mission Backgrounder

On Sunday, November 1 at 8:50 p.m. eastern standard time the European Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) satellite will be launched on a Russian Rockot launcher from the Plesetsk cosmodrome in northern Russia.

This is Unreasonable Rocket's first launch attempt for the Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge level one prize. The rocket known as Blue Ball made a valiant effort but ran out of fuel at the end and came done with a sharp thud to the ground and appears to have damaged one of its legs.

ESA Proba-2 Mission Backgrounder

On Sunday, November 1 at 8:50 p.m. eastern standard time the European PRoject for OnBoard Autonomy (Proba-2) satellite will be launched along with the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) satellite on a Russian Rockot launcher from the Plesetsk cosmodrome in northern Russia. The Proba-2 satellite is part of ESA's in‑orbit technology demonstration programme which are missions dedicated to the demonstration of innovative technologies.

Cassini Flyby of Enceladus

On Monday, Nov. 2, NASA's Cassini spacecraft will take its deepest dive yet through the plumes of Saturns moon Enceladus. The goal is to learn more about the composition and density of the plumes spewing from the moons south pole. This is the seventh targeted flyby of Enceladus, so we sometimes refer to it as E7. The video has no sound.

This Masten Space Systems second flight within the allotted time On October 30, 2009 in an attempt to win a share of the Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge.

Ares 1-X Rocket Test Flight Launch

This is NASA's first flight test for the agency's next-generation spacecraft and launch vehicle system, called Ares I-X, will bring NASA one step closer to its exploration goals. The flight test will provide NASA with an early opportunity to test and prove flight characteristics, hardware, facilities and ground operations associated with the Ares I.

These are the opening remarks by Norman Augustine at the press conference on October 22, 2009 after the US Human Spaceflight Plans Committee released its final report.

On Oct. 21, 2009, the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, Calif., hosted a lecture on the latest science from the Cassini mission to Saturn. The event was hosted by Griffith Curator, Laura Danly and the featured speakers were Cassini scientists, Kevin Baines (JPL), Linda Spilker (JPL), Tamas Gombosi (Univ. of Michigan), Amanda Hendrix (JPL), Jonathan Lunine (Univ. of Arizona).

Carolyn Porco shares exciting new findings from the Cassini spacecraft's recent sweep of one of Saturn's moons, Enceladus. Samples gathered from the moon's icy geysers hint that an ocean under its surface could harbor life.

Exploring the Moons of Saturn

The most ambitious mission in planetary space exploration ever mounted, Cassini-Huygens landed a probe on Titan and is returning the most detailed views of the Saturnian system.

Recently, Carolyn Porco, who leads the Cassini imaging team, took New Scientist on a tour of her favourite images from the past four years. They include waves in the planet's famous rings, sand dunes and possible rain clouds on the surprisingly Earth-like moon Titan, and enigmatic geysers on the icy moon Enceladus.

Titan - A Place Like Home

Investigation of Titan, Saturn's largest moon, after the Cassini spacecraft's seven-year trek landed the Huygens Probe on its surface. Does it reveal how life on Earth began?
