NASA1,889,050Join 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 20:30:001664

NASA1,889,050NASA 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 19:00:00600 
NASA1,889,050Fifty 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 21:00:00651

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

LOOK UP TONIGHT! The 2014 Geminid meteor shower is forecast to be a lively meteor shower with great views in the skies over Earth, and tonight is the anticipated peak. Best viewing will be in dark sky locations, away from city lights.

Cloudy? We're hosting an overnight web chat from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. EST and will broadcast the shower live on Ustream. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1yUCCWP

A series of elliptical loops seemed to droop down out of an active region on the Sun that was rotating into view (Dec. 7-9, 2014). The loops are actually particles spiraling along magnetic field lines when viewed in a wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light. Above this group other loops above another active region are tighter and less elongated, but always changing as well. The video covers two days of activity.

Venus from Space Station: Astronaut Terry Virts aboard the International Space Station snapped this image and wrote, "Venus sits on the background of the Earth's atmosphere."

Virts worked on medical science Wednesday morning and later set up commercial research gear for an experiment to be delivered on the next SpaceX mission, which is scheduled to launch Dec. 16. Meanwhile, station Commander Barry Wilmore and Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti continued this week's maintenance work on a U.S. spacesuit.

Where's the Martian water? NASA and an international team of planetary scientists have found evidence in meteorites on Earth that indicates Mars has a distinct and global reservoir of water or ice near its surface. Though controversy still surrounds the origin, abundance and history of water on Mars, this discovery helps resolve the question of where the “missing Martian water” may have gone.

A newly discovered galaxy cluster is the most massive one ever detected with an age of 800 million years or younger. Using data from our our Chandra X-ray Observatory, astronomers have accurately determined the mass and other properties of this cluster. This is an important step in understanding how galaxy clusters, the largest structures in the Universe held together by gravity, have evolved over time. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/13hxPlJ

NASA and SpaceX announced today the launch of SpaceX's fifth commercial resupply services mission to the International Space Station now will occur no earlier than Tuesday, Jan. 6. This will provide SpaceX engineers time to investigate further some of the issues that arose from the static fire test of the Falcon 9 rocket on Dec. 16 and will avoid beta angle constraints for berthing the Dragon cargo ship to the station that exist through the end of the year.
 
Beta angles are the angles between the space station orbital plane and the sun, resulting in the station being in almost constant sunlight for a 10 day period. During this time, there are thermal and operational constraints that prohibit Dragon from berthing to the station. This high beta period runs from Dec. 28 through Jan. 7.
 
The new launch date also will allow the teams to enjoy the holidays.

During this time, there are thermal and operational constraints that prohibit Dragon from berthing to the station. This high beta period runs from Dec. 28 through Jan. 7.
 
The new launch date also will allow the teams to enjoy the holidays.
 
Space station managers will meet on Monday, Jan. 5, for a thorough readiness review in advance of the Jan. 6 launch attempt. The launch postponement has no impact on the station's crew, its complement of food, fuel and supplies and will not impact the science being delivered to the crew once Dragon arrives at the station.
 
A launch on Tuesday, Jan. 6, is scheduled at approximately 6:18 a.m. EST. NASA TV coverage will begin at 5 a.m.
 
A backup launch attempt is available on Wednesday, Jan. 7.
 
A launch on Jan. 6 will result in a rendezvous and grapple of Dragon on Thursday, Jan. 8, at approximately 6 a.m. NASA TV coverage will begin at 4:30 a.m. Installation coverage will begin at 9 a.m.
 
Prelaunch briefings at NASA's Kennedy Space Center will be rescheduled for Monday, Jan. 5 with the times to be determined.

Aboard the International Space Station, astronaut Terry Virts posted this image and wrote, "One of the most amazing sites on Earth #AmazonRiver delta."

The station crew has been working on a variety of robotics activities this week. On Wednesday, they tested a humanoid robot and explored how bowling ball-sized satellites, known as SPHERES, can navigate around objects. Crew members trained earlier in the week for the planned Sunday capture of the Dragon spacecraft using the 57.7 foot Canadarm2.

Early discoveries by our newest Mars orbiter are starting to reveal key features about the loss of the planet’s atmosphere to space over time.

The findings are among the first returns from NASA’s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) mission, which entered its science phase on Nov. 16. The observations reveal a new process by which the solar wind can penetrate deep into a planetary atmosphere. They include the first comprehensive measurements of the composition of Mars’ upper atmosphere and electrically charged ionosphere. The results also offer an unprecedented view of ions as they gain the energy that will lead to their to escape from the atmosphere.

Opportunity Pausing at a Bright Outcrop on Endeavour Rim, Sol 3854

NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity is continuing its traverse southward on the western rim of Endeavour Crater during the fall of 2014, stopping to investigate targets of scientific interest along way. This view is from Opportunity's front hazard avoidance camera on Nov. 26, 2014, during the 3,854th Martian day, or sol, of the rover's work on Mars. This camera is mounted low on the rover and has a wide-angle lens.

The scene includes Opportunity's robotic arm, called the "instrument deployment device," at upper left. Portions of the pale bedrock exposed on the ground in front of the rover are within the arm's reach.

A series of elliptical loops seemed to droop down out of an active region on the Sun that was rotating into view (Dec. 7-9, 2014). The loops are actually particles spiraling along magnetic field lines when viewed in a wavelength of extreme ultraviolet light. Above this group other loops above another active region are tighter and less elongated, but always changing as well. The video covers two days of activity.

Although solid-looking in many images, Saturn's rings are actually translucent. In this picture, we can glimpse the shadow of the rings on the planet through (and below) the A and C rings themselves, towards the lower right hand corner.

For centuries people have studied Saturn's rings, but questions about the structure and composition of the rings lingered. It was only in 1857 when the physicist James Clerk Maxwell demonstrated that the rings must be composed of many small particles and not solid rings around the planet, and not until the 1970s that spectroscopic evidence definitively showed that the rings are composed mostly of water ice.

This view looks toward the sunlit side of the rings from about 17 degrees above the ringplane. The image was taken with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on Aug. 12, 2014 in near-infrared light centered at 752 nanometers.

View of All That Glitters: This striking Hubble Space Telescope image shows a glittering bauble named Messier 92. Located in the northern constellation of Hercules, this globular cluster — a ball of stars that orbits a galactic core like a satellite — was first discovered by astronomer Johann Elert Bode in 1777.

Messier 92 is one of the brightest globular clusters in the Milky Way, and is visible to the naked eye under good observing conditions. It is very tightly packed with stars, containing some 330,000 stars in total. As is characteristic of globular clusters, the predominant elements within Messier 92 are hydrogen and helium, with only traces of others.

It's the most wonderful time of the year -- for spotting a Geminid meteor! The 2014 Geminid meteor shower is forecast to be a lively meteor shower with great views in the skies over Earth. The week of Dec. 8 is a good window for Geminid-watching, but the night of Dec. 13-14 is the anticipated peak. Best viewing will be in dark sky locations, away from city lights.

At this time of year, there are lots of gatherings often decorated with festive lights. When galaxies get together, there is the chance of a spectacular light show as is the case with NGC 2207 and IC 2163. Located about 130 million light years from Earth, in the constellation of Canis Major, this pair of spiral galaxies has been caught in a grazing encounter.

Colorful and Plankton-full Patagonian Waters: Late spring and summer weather brings blooms of color to the Atlantic Ocean off of South America, at least from a satellite view. The Patagonian Shelf Break is a biologically rich patch of ocean where airborne dust from the land, iron-rich currents from the south, and upwelling currents from the depths provide a bounty of nutrients for the grass of the sea—phytoplankton. In turn, those floating sunlight harvesters become food for some of the richest fisheries in the world.

Venus from Space Station: Astronaut Terry Virts aboard the International Space Station snapped this image and wrote, "Venus sits on the background of the Earth's atmosphere."

Virts worked on medical science Wednesday morning and later set up commercial research gear for an experiment to be delivered on the next SpaceX mission, which is scheduled to launch Dec. 16. Meanwhile, station Commander Barry Wilmore and Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti continued this week's maintenance work on a U.S. spacesuit.

The question about the origin of oceans on Earth is one of the most important questions with respect to the formation of our planet and the origin of life. The most popular theory is that water was brought by impacts of comets and asteroids. +European Space Agency, ESA's Rosetta Mission reignites the debate on Earth's oceans.
