    Dark Matter and Existence Of Humans

    What is The Connection? Leading Harvard physicist has a radical new theory for why humans exist Where do we come from? There are many right answers to this question, and the one you get often depends on who you ask. For example, an astrophysicist might say that the chemical components of our bodies were first forged in the nuclear fires of stars. Well you decide what you believe. Enjoy and share…..

  • Earth – A Breathing Planet Off Balance

    Earth – A Breathing Planet Off Balance

    Man-made or not the end will come. We may not be around to see it, but that’s the direction our home planet is heading. NASA scientists and missions are researching the movement of carbon through the atmosphere, ocean, and plant life to better understand how, and for how long, the Earth can continue to absorb half of all carbon emissions. I sincerely hope that they will find a solution to this problem. In my opinion this should take the top […]

  • Have We Found Earth’s Twin?

    Have We Found Earth’s Twin?

    Astronomers have used numerous methods to discover extra solar planets, the most successful is a technique called transit photometry. It measures changes in a star’s brightness caused when a planet crosses in front of its star along our line of sight. Astronomers using NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope have employed this technique to become the most successful planet-hunting spacecraft to date, with more than a thousand established discoveries and many more awaiting confirmation. Future missions carrying improved technology are now in […]

  • Researchers Gear Up for OLYMPEX

    Researchers Gear Up for OLYMPEX

    The Olympic Mountain Experiment, or OLYMPEX, is a NASA-led field campaign, which will take place on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State from November 2015 through February 2016. The goal of the campaign is to collect detailed atmospheric measurements that will be used to evaluate how well rain-observing satellites measure rainfall and snowfall from space. In particular, OLYMPEX will be assessing satellite measurements made by the Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission Core Observatory, a joint mission by NASA and the […]

  • The Search For Another Earth.

    The Search For Another Earth.

    Twenty years ago, astronomers discovered the first exoplanet discovered around a sun-like star, 51 Pegasi b, made us question what we knew about our universe and launched the search for new worlds. This is the story of the pioneers in planet-hunting and how those who have followed are closer to answering one of humanity’s most ancient questions: Is there life elsewhere in the universe? Seat back and enjoy Enjoy and share…..

    The Search for Another Earth

    Twenty years ago astronomers discovered the first planet around a sun-like star, 51 Pegasi b. And in the last 20 years, astronomers have discovered thousands of new exotic worlds, begun to characterize atmospheres of faraway planets, and are developing cutting-edge technology to launch us on our search for alien life. Planets with two suns, rogue planets with no star, close cousins to planet Earth. This is the story of the pioneers in planet-hunting and how those who have followed are […]

    Widely Used Coolants Contribute to Ozone Depletion

    According to a new NASA study, a class of widely used chemical coolants known as hydro-fluorocarbons (HFC), found in refrigerators and in home and automobile air conditioners, contributes to ozone depletion by a small but measurable amount, countering a decades-old assumption.

  • A Year Off The Earth, For The Earth

    A Year Off The Earth, For The Earth

    Actor Billy Dee Williams narrates this video about the year-long mission being conducted aboard the International Space Station by NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko. The average International Space Station expedition lasts four to six months. Research enabled by the one-year mission will help scientists better understand how the human body reacts and adapts to long-duration spaceflight. This knowledge is critical as NASA looks toward human missions deeper into the solar system, including to and from Mars, […]
