This is so cool. Click on the thumbnail to see an exploding star.
It’s not just a pretty picture, either. This picture, one of the first taken by the Hubble Space Telescope since its successful refurbishing, contains useful data on temperature and composition collected by the new Wide Field Camera 3 to help scientists […]

I knew it! I just knew it! What secret powers does the Lost Continent possess to reanimate long-dead scientists? What ancient wisdom awaits if only we will explore?
And yet, even with these staggering findings, the Obama administration has indicated its intention to cut the NASA budget […]

Think a week’s worth of seasonal cold might undo all that pesky global warming mess? Put that wishful thinking away in the desk drawer and attend to findings from two NASA scientists. They report that more than 2 trillion tons of land-based ice in Greenland, Antarctica and Alaska have melted since 2003. More than half […]
The House of Representatives passed H.R.6455 yesterday. It’s a bill that requires the Treasury Department to mint a coin commemorating NASA – the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Note that the coin celebrates NASA – but what has NASA done for us? […]
