Ready to Celebrate 25 years of Hubble?

Hubble, beautiful Hubble…It has given us so much pleasure over the years. We have been able to see such beauty through its eyes.
Are you prepared to celebrate a quarter of a century  of Hubble Space Telescope?
Well you have 5 months to think and plan  your it!
April 24, 2015 marks the historic launch of the Hubble Space Telescope aboard the space shuttle Discovery.

CATS in Space Keep Eyes on Atmosphere

NASA Goddard is preparing to demonstrate for the fist time in space, a 3-wavelength, laser remote sensing instrument. The Cloud-Aerosol Transport System or CATS will measure clouds and aerosols in the Earth’s atmosphere. This cost-effective, technology demonstration will be deployed on the International Space Station as early as December 2014.

A Year in the Life of Earth’s CO2

Another video displying the changes in the Earth’s atmosphere. It is amazing to see what can be achieved using computers.
This video interests me particularly because my country is part of the changes occuring.
An ultra-high-resolution NASA computer model has given scientists a stunning new look at how carbon dioxide in the atmosphere travels around the globe.
Plumes of carbon dioxide in the simulation swirl and shift as winds disperse the greenhouse gas away from its sources. The simulation also illustrates differences in carbon dioxide levels in the northern and southern hemispheres and distinct swings in global carbon dioxide concentrations as the growth cycle of plants and trees changes with the seasons.
The carbon dioxide visualization was produced by a computer model called GEOS-5, created by scientists at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center’s Global Modeling and Assimilation Office.
The visualization is a product of a simulation called a “Nature Run.” The Nature Run ingests real data on atmospheric conditions and the emission of greenhouse gases and both natural and man-made particulates. The model is then left to run on its own and simulate the natural behavior of the Earth’s atmosphere. This Nature Run simulates January 2006 through December 2006.
While Goddard scientists worked with a “beta” version of the Nature Run internally for several years, they released this updated, improved version to the scientific community for the first time in the fall of 2014.
