  • Stacking The MMS Spacecraft

    Stacking The MMS Spacecraft

    The Magnetospheric Multiscale, or MMS, mission stacked all four of its spacecraft in preparation for vibration testing. This time lapse shows one image every thirty seconds over three days of work. First, the spacecraft are assembled into mini-stacks, or placed on top of each other in sets of two. To create a full stack, engineers lift one mini-stack on top of another. Vibration testing simulates the conditions that the MMS spacecraft will experience during launch. MMS will study how the […]

  • Earth From Orbit 2013

    Earth From Orbit 2013

    A fleet of orbiting satellites monitors Earth constantly. The satellites from NASA and other space agencies give us a fresh, wide perspective on things that we can see from the ground,and things that we can’t. A look back at Earth in 2013 from the viewpoint of orbit reveals the kind of data gathering and technical achievement that are the reason NASA puts Earth-observing satellites in space. A visualization of satellite and computer model data shows how a cloud of dust […]

  • A Fury Is Building On The Surface Of The Sun

    A Fury Is Building On The Surface Of The Sun

    Here we have a bit of history narrated to music and lots of great photography. Loved to watch this video as it reminds us of how lucky we are to be living on this planet. It also reminds us to take care of it as it is the only home we as humans have. Here is the narration of the video. Heat generated in its core is released in towers of hot electrified gas, called plasma, that break the surface. […]

  • The Daily Routine:IceBridge

    The Daily Routine:IceBridge

    This video shows what the IceBridge team does on a day-to-day basis in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, the base of operations for the mission’s April 2014 flights. IceBridge, a six-year NASA mission, is the largest airborne survey of Earth’s polar ice ever flown. It will yield an unprecedented three-dimensional view of Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets, ice shelves and sea ice. These flights will provide a yearly, multi-instrument look at the behavior of the rapidly changing features of Earth’s polar ice. Data […]

  • Star Formation Region Gum 41

    Star Formation Region Gum 41

    This zoom sequence starts with a broad view of the Milky Way and closes in on one of the more spectacular sections in the constellation of Centaurus (The Centaur). In the final sequence we see the star formation region known as Gum 41 in a new image from the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at the La Silla Observatory in Chile. This area of the southern sky, in the constellation of Centaurus (The Centaur), is home to many bright nebulae, each associated […]

  • Orbiting Carbon Observatory 2

    Orbiting Carbon Observatory 2

    The Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 is NASA’s first spacecraft dedicated to studying carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is the main human-produced driver of climate change. The Observatory will collect hundreds of thousands of measurements each day, providing a global description of the atmospheric carbon dioxide distribution with unprecedented coverage and resolution. OCO-2 will provide new insights into the sources emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and the processes at Earth’s surface that absorb this gas. Enjoy and share…..
