On December 18, 2018, the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) instrument on NASA’s Terra satellite detected the aftermath of an explosion of a fireball (a very bright meteor) 16 miles (26 kilometers) over the Bering Sea.
To celebrate an upcoming groundbreaking mission to the Sun’s atmosphere, NASA is inviting the public to submit their names to be added to a microchip which will be placed onboard the Parker Solar Probe.
Researching clouds and their impact on ecosystems and species could help researchers find an entirely new way to see the Earth. By looking at clouds, researchers can add a layer of evidence to existing theories and practices of conservation of land and animals.
Using Landsat satellite data, researchers compiled videos and still pictures of glaciers from four regions in the Karakoram mountains in central Asia. Unlike other glacial regions in the world, glaciers in the Karakoram are advancing rather than retreating.
The continents of earth are helping slow down sea level rise, a new study shows. Melting glaciers and ice sheets are causing sea levels to change around the world, but the continents are actually absorbing a lot of this excess water.
