NASA2,047,501Join us for a live Google+ Hangout on observing the Earth while in orbit and the importance of Earth science observations from space. The astronauts living aboard the International Space Station get a unique view of planet Earth. In a single 90-minute orbit, they can see weather systems like hurricanes, man-made developments like cities and geological phenomena like volcanoes. Of all the planets NASA has explored, none yet have matched the dynamic complexity of our own Earth. Luckily for us here on the ground, astronauts like Rick Mastracchio and Koichi Wakata have documented and shared their views from the orbiting laboratory 250 miles above the Earth. Both Mastracchio and Wakata tweeted during their 188 days in orbit, sharing photos of auroras, islands, lakes, bridges, glaciers, cities, deserts, mountains, clouds, and more. Photos like theirs give us a new perspective on our planet. A fleet of NASA satellites also monitor the Earth’s vital signs every day. One example is the joint US-Japan Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission, which launched while Mastracchio and Wakata were living on ISS. The astronauts briefed President Obama on GPM in April, describing it as “a groundbreaking satellite that is changing how we measure rain and snowfall from space.”Mastracchio and Wakata will be joined by Eric Holthaus, a meteorologist who writes about weather and climate for Slate’s Future Tense blog, and Gail Skofronick Jackson, a GPM scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. You may submit questions on Twitter and Google+ in advance and during the Hangout using the hashtag #askNASA .Observing Earth from Space2014-09-17 20:30:001657

We'll have a great panel of experts on hand including:- David Morrison, astrobiologist from NASA's Ames Research Center- Don Yeomans, asteroid scientist from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory- Mitzi Adams, solar/archaeoastronomer from NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center- Lika Guhathakurta, heliophysicist from NASA Headquarters- Paul Hertz, astrophysicist from NASA Headquarters- Andrew Fraknoi, science educator from Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, Calif.Followers on Twitter may ask a question in advance of or during the event using the hashtag #askNASA. On NASA Facebook and Google+, a comment thread will open for questions on the morning of the event. To join the hangout, visit this event page on the date of the event or visit NASA's Google+ page:http://plus.google.com/+NASABeyond 2012: Google+ Hangout with NASA2012-11-28 20:00:002821 
NASA2,047,501NASA Administrator Charles Bolden and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk will discuss the first contracted cargo resupply flight to the International Space Station during a Google+ Hangout from 1-1:30 p.m. EDT Friday, Oct. 5. The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and its Dragon cargo spacecraft are scheduled to lift off at 8:35 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 7 from at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Bolden and Musk will talk about the flight, which will be the first of 12 contracted for NASA by SpaceX to resupply the space station. The SpaceX flights under the Commercial Resupply Services contract will restore an American capability to deliver and return significant amounts of cargo, including science experiments, to the orbiting laboratory -- a feat not achievable since the retirement of the space shuttle. Followers on Twitter may ask a question in advance of or during the event using the hashtag #askNASA . On Google+, leave a comment in the thread on this event page with questions marked with #askNASA  on the morning of the event. To join the hangout, visit the NASA's Google+ page at 1 p.m. EDT on Friday, Oct. 5:  http://plus.google.com/+NASAThe Dragon will be filled with about 1,000 pounds of supplies. This includes critical materials to support the 166 investigations planned for the station's Expedition 33 crew, including 63 new investigations. The Dragon will return about 734 pounds of scientific materials, including results from human research, biotechnology, materials and educational experiments, as well as about 504 pounds of space station hardware. For information about the space station, research in low Earth orbit, NASA's commercial space programs and the future of American spaceflight, visit:  http://www.nasa.gov/explorationFor more information about SpaceX, visit: http://www.spacex.comDiscuss the First Contracted Cargo Resupply Flight to the Space Station with NASA & SpaceX2012-10-05 19:00:00599 
NASA2,047,501Fifty years ago, President John Kennedy challenged us to go to the moon within the decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard. As we remember Neil Armstrong this week – the man who, with a single step realized the hopes of a president, this nation and the world – we are recognizing the extraordinary achievements of the past five decades achieved by our nation's space agency and where the passion to explore will lead us in the future. President Barack Obama has set NASA on course toward an asteroid and to send humans to Mars within the next two decades. This goal is not without notable challenges, but using the knowledge, expertise and American ingenuity that has been the trademark of NASA scientists and engineers for the last half-century, NASA continues to make possible that which is seemingly impossible. At 3:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, September 12, NASA astronauts, scientists and engineers will hold a Google+ Hangout to talk about NASA's rich history of innovation and ingenuity and talk about NASA's future goals for scientific discovery and human spaceflight.During the event, we'll be joined by:- Dan Dumbacher, Deputy Associate Administrator for Exploration Systems Development in NASA's Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate. He is the former Director of Engineering at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. Previously, he was the deputy director of safety and mission assurance at Marshall.- Ron Garan, astronaut who lived and worked aboard the International Space Station. He has been in space for 178 days and has conducted four spacewalks.- John Grunsfeld, Associate Administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate. He is an astronaut and researcher in high energy astrophysics, cosmic ray physics, and in the emerging field of exoplanet studies. He was also the deputy director of the Space Telescope Science Institute, managing the science program for the Hubble Space Telescope and the forthcoming James Webb Space Telescope.- Michael Lopez-Alegria, the President of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation. He is a former Naval Aviator and test pilot (Capt., U.S. Navy, Ret.), NASA astronaut and International Space Station (ISS) commander.To join the event, visit http://plus.google.com/+NASA at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Ask your questions of the group in the comments below or using hashtag #askNASA :50 Years Later: NASA Discusses Using Innovation and Ingenuity to do Big Things2012-09-12 21:00:00650

Guido Bibra4,763Circle Share #4: Science, Space & AstronomyOne of the other things I try to get involved in, or at least promote, is everything about these fields and for this reason I have a hand-picked circle with everything about science, spaceflight and exploration and astronomy around. It's a relatively low-noise group, but everyone from space journalists and scientists from the CosmoQuest & Universe Today crowd, many astronauts and a lot more people are in there. If you want even more, have a look at Fraser Cain's Super Science Circle (goo.gl/BZow8O), on which my circle was originally partly based on - but it has taken on a kind of life of its own during the last year.2014-12-30 17:50:32184002

James Clair Lewis77,548The Poster's CircleYou just got Notified, because you are in this Circle.I put people in this Circle, because I think their Posts are totally awesome. Nobody asked to get in. It's not a popularity contest. This Circle doesn't work that way.This Circle is a Marketplace for Ideas. Everybody in this Circle has great ideas, and posts about them all the time. Some cover Science, others cover Environmental issues, Social Change, and there are New Age Philosophers. It's all good.If I were you, I'd Add this Circle, just to find out who all these wonderful people are.Now I'm not going to tell you that you have to Share this Circle. Nope. Not my Way.BUT... I will point out that if a bunch of the smartest people I've found on G+ all Share this Circle, that the whole lot of us will end up with larger audiences for our Ideas.It would be kind of nice if Thirst for Knowledge, Social Justice, and Enlightenment went Mainstream...See? No pressure. Just a little hint...hehehehe2014-11-18 13:52:5791003

A Whirlpool of Light: The year of 2015 has been declared the International Year of Light (IYL) by the United Nations. Organizations, institutions, and individuals involved in the science and applications of light will be joining together for this yearlong celebration to help spread the word about the wonders of light. In many ways, astronomy uses the science of light. And to celebrate, our Chandra X-ray Observatory released new images. Here's one of them:

This galaxy, nicknamed the "Whirlpool," is a spiral galaxy, like our Milky Way, located about 30 million light years from Earth. This composite image combines data collected at X-ray wavelengths by Chandra (purple), ultraviolet by the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX, blue); visible light by Hubble (green), and infrared by Spitzer (red).

Ready for Thursday's Launch: The sun sets behind Space Launch Complex 2 (SLC-2) with the Delta II rocket and the Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) observatory protected by the service structure on Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015, at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. SMAP is our first Earth-observing satellite designed to collect global observations of surface soil moisture and its freeze/thaw state. SMAP will provide high resolution global measurements of soil moisture from space. The data will be used to enhance scientists' understanding of the processes that link Earth's water, energy, and carbon cycles.

The data will be used to enhance scientists' understanding of the processes that link Earth's water, energy, and carbon cycles.

Citizen scientists lead astronomers to mystery objects in space: Sometimes it takes a village to find new and unusual objects in space. Volunteers scanning tens of thousands of starry images from our Spritzer Space Telescope, using the Web-based Milky Way Project, recently stumbled upon a new class of curiosities that had gone largely unrecognized before: yellow balls. The rounded features are not actually yellow -- they just appear that way in the infrared, color-assigned Spitzer images. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1CvncJX

Managers from NASA and United Launch Alliance (ULA) met Tuesday at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California to assess the status of NASA SMAP Mission (Soil Moisture Active Passive) spacecraft and the ULA Delta II rocket that will boost SMAP into space. At the conclusion of the Launch Vehicle Readiness Review, a poll was taken and a “go” given for launch from Vandenberg’s Space Launch Complex 2 at 9:20 a.m. EST, the opening of a three-minute launch window, on Thursday, Jan. 29.

Weather forecasters from the U.S. Air Force 30th Weather Squadron are predicting an 80 percent chance of favorable weather for launch of SMAP.

Organizations, institutions, and individuals involved in the science and applications of light will be joining together for this yearlong celebration to help spread the word about the wonders of light. In many ways, astronomy uses the science of light. And to celebrate, our Chandra X-ray Observatory released new images. Here's one of them:

When X-rays, shown in blue, from Chandra and XMM-Newton are joined in this image with radio data from the Australia Telescope Compact Array (pink) and visible light data from the Digitized Sky Survey (DSS, yellow), a new view of the region emerges. This object, known as MSH 11-62, contains an inner nebula of charged particles that could be an outflow from the dense spinning core left behind when a massive star exploded.

Scientists have developed a way to produce models of where the magnetic field lines are several times each day. The spiraling arcs of magnetic field lines emerge from active regions and connect back to areas with the opposite polarity. The field lines are more concentrated where regions are more magnetically intense. They rotate with the rotation of the Sun.

Meanwhile, 60 million light-years away from Earth, the spiral galaxy NGC 4217, spotted by the Hubble Space Telescope. The galaxy is seen almost perfectly edge on and is a perfect candidate for studying the nature of extraplanar dust structures — the patterns of gas and dust above and below the plane on the galaxy, seen here as brown wisps coming off NGC 4217.

These tentacle-like filaments are visible in the Hubble image only because the contrast with their surroundings is so high. This implies that the structures are denser than their surroundings. The image shows dozens of dust structures some of which reach as far as 7,000 light-years away from the central plane. Typically the structures have a length of about 1,000 light-years and are about 400 light-years in width.

11 Years and Counting! The Mars Opportunity rover has driven 25.9 miles (41.7 kilometers) since it landed in the Meridiani Planum region of Mars on Jan. 25, 2004 (Universal Time, which was Jan. 24, PST). That is farther than any other off-Earth surface vehicle has driven. The Mars Exploration Rovers's work on Mars was initially planned for three months. During that prime mission and for more than a decade of bonus performance in extended missions, Opportunity has returned compelling evidence about wet environments on ancient Mars.

We're one week away from launching SMAP! 

The Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) mission, scheduled for launch on Jan. 29, will measure the moisture in Earth's soil with greater accuracy and higher resolution than any preceding mission, producing a global map of soil moisture every three days. 

Here are five quick facts about the spacecraft and what it studies: http://go.nasa.gov/1yK3NE9

Asteroid Vesta, visited by our Dawn spacecraft from 2011 to 2013, was once thought to be completely dry, incapable of retaining water because of the low temperatures and pressures at its surface. However, a new study shows evidence that Vesta may have had short-lived flows of water-mobilized material on its surface, based on data from Dawn. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1uyGpd3

Our collaboration with +Microsoft will allow scientists to ‘work on Mars.’ New software called OnSight will use holographic computing to overlay visual information and data from our Mars Curiosity Rover to the user's field of view. Holographic computing blends a view of the physical world with computer-generated imagery to create a hybrid of real and virtual. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1BfLRAM #JourneyToMars
