A new study by astronomers at NASA, Johns Hopkins University and the Rochester Institute of Technology confirms long-held suspicions about how stellar-mass black holes produce their highest-energy light.

A series of tiny satellites equipped with an array of sensors will take a jarring ride above the California desert on a small rocket June 15 and tell designers whether they are on track to launch into orbit next year.

Here is a video fo today's beautiful arching prominence eruption on the north western limb of the Sun. One the prominence breaks, some of the plasma flows back to the solar surface, moving along the magnetic field lines. This view is in 304 angstroms wavelength of the extreme UV light.

The Hubble Space Telescope has made amazing astronomical discoveries for 23 years. It still has a good number of years left, but without the Space Shuttle, servicing missions are no longer possible. The natural question is "what's next?"

NASA's Iowa Flood Study Hangout

NASA experts and guests to discuss what they've seen so far in the field, what goes into a flood forecast, how scientists are improving them with better rain measurements, and the role of satellites for addressing flood hazards globally.

NASA research indicates hunks of frozen carbon dioxide -- dry ice -- may glide down some Martian sand dunes on cushions of gas similar to miniature hovercraft, plowing furrows as they go.

The Russian ISS Progress 51 cargo ship undocked from the International Space Station's Zvezda Service Module June 11, clearing the way for the scheduled arrival of the European Space Agency's "Albert Einstein" Automated Transfer Vehicle to link up to the same port June 15.

NASA Too Much, Too Little

Researchers need accurate and timely rainfall information to better understand and model where and when severe floods, frequent landslides and devastating droughts may occur. GPM's global rainfall data will help to better prepare and respond to a wide range of natural disasters.

The SunSat Design Competition is a new international competition designed to accelerate the conceptualization, manufacture, launch and operation of the next-generation satellites that will collect energy in space and deliver it to earth as a non-polluting source of electrical power.

NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden delivered the keynote address for this year's Space Weather Enterprise Forum at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Auditorium and Science Center in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Project Morpheus Tether Test 22

We had a very successful tether test on June 6th, 2013. The vehicle hovered for 60 seconds with a total flight time of 74 seconds. It was a very smooth flight and an overall success.

NASA's Newest View of the Sun

NASA hosts a news update about the June 26 launch of the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) mission from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

Water on the Moon

Since the 1960's, scientists have suspected that frozen water could survive in cold, dark craters at the Moon's poles. While previous lunar missions have detected hints of water on the Moon, new data from the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) pinpoints areas near the south pole where water is likely to exist.

Mars Mineral Globe

This unique atlas comprises a series of maps showing the distribution and abundance of minerals formed in water, by volcanic activity, and by weathering to create the dust that makes Mars red.

As the 1.7-mile-long (2.74 km) asteroid 1998 QE2 began its relatively close flyby of Earth, telescope images were provided during a live broadcast from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, seen on NASA Television.


New radar data obtained by NASA shows Asteroid 1998 QE2 has a moon. The asteroid will get no closer than about 3.6 million miles (5.8 million kilometers), or about 15 times the distance between Earth and the moon.

Heaven and Earth

There are patterns of beauty across our Earth and throughout the Universe.

Less than a day after announcing its plan to crowd source a space telescope, the Planetary Resources Kickstarter campaign has nearly reached 34% of its goal of $1,000,000.

Soyuz TMA-09M Docks With ISS

Soyuz Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos), NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg and European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Luca Parmitano docked their Soyuz to the station's Rassvet module at 10:16 p.m. this evening.

At 4:31 p.m. ET a Soyuz rocket with Commander Fyodor Yurchikhin and Flight Engineers Luca Parmitano and Karen Nyberg launched to the International Space Station (ISS) for a rendezvous and docking with the ISS later tonight at 10:17 p.m. ET.
