NASA1,785,713Join 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 20:30:001668

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.

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 
NASA1,785,713NASA 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 19:00:00601 
NASA1,785,713Fifty 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

Before you share this circle please read everything detailed below:This is the newest release of my #topengagers  circle.  This week I wanted to give this circle a SERIOUS overhaul. So I deleted it.

Swift Gamma-Ray Burst Mission Marks Ten Years of Discovery

On Nov. 20, 2004, NASA's Swift spacecraft lifted off aboard a Boeing Delta II rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., beginning its mission to study gamma-ray bursts and identify their origins. Gamma-ray bursts are the most luminous explosions in the cosmos. Most are thought to be triggered when the core of a massive star runs out of nuclear fuel, collapses under its own weight, and forms a black hole. The black hole then drives jets of particles that drill all the way through the collapsing star and erupt into space at nearly the speed of light.

Seen here, astronomers at NASA and Pennsylvania State University used Swift to create the most detailed ultraviolet light surveys ever of the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, the two closest major galaxies. Nearly a million ultraviolet sources appear in this mosaic of... more »

Swift Gamma-Ray Burst Mission Marks Ten Years of Discovery

On Nov. 20, 2004, NASA's Swift spacecraft lifted off aboard a Boeing Delta II rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla., beginning its mission to study gamma-ray bursts and identify their origins. Gamma-ray bursts are the most luminous explosions in the cosmos. Most are thought to be triggered when the core of a massive star runs out of nuclear fuel, collapses under its own weight, and forms a black hole. The black hole then drives jets of particles that drill all the way through the collapsing star and erupt into space at nearly the speed of light.

Seen here, astronomers at NASA and Pennsylvania State University used Swift to create the most detailed ultraviolet light surveys ever of the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, the two closest major galaxies. Nearly a million ultraviolet sources appear in this mosaic of the Large Magellanic Cloud, which was assembled from 2,200 images taken by Swift's Ultraviolet/Optical Telescope (UVOT) and released on June 3, 2013. The 160-megapixel image required a cumulative exposure of 5.4 days. The image includes light from 1,600 to 3,300 angstroms -- UV wavelengths largely blocked by Earth's atmosphere -- and has an angular resolution of 2.5 arcseconds at full size. The Large Magellanic Cloud is about 14,000 light-years across.

Viewing in the ultraviolet allows astronomers to suppress the light of normal stars like the sun, which are not very bright at such higher energies, and provides a clearer picture of the hottest stars and star-formation regions. No telescope other than UVOT can produce such high-resolution wide-field multicolor surveys in the ultraviolet.

Born from the rubble of a violent collision, hurled through space for millions of years and dismembered by the gravity of planets, asteroid Bennu had a tough life in a rough neighborhood: the early solar system. "Bennu's Journey" shows what's known and what remains mysterious about the life of Bennu and the origin of the solar system.

"We are going to Bennu because we want to know what it has witnessed over the course of its evolution," said Edward Beshore of the University of Arizona, Deputy Principal Investigator for NASA's asteroid-sample-return mission OSIRIS-REx. The mission will be launched toward Bennu in late 2016, arrive at the asteroid in 2018, and return a sample of Bennu’s surface to Earth in 2023.

Supernova Remnant: A long observation with Chandra of the supernova remnant MSH 11-62 reveals an irregular shell of hot gas, shown in red, surrounding an extended nebula of high energy X-rays, shown in blue. Even though scientists have yet to detect any pulsations from the central object within MSH 11-62, the structure around it has many of the same characteristics as other pulsar wind nebulas. The reverse shock and other, secondary shocks within MSH 11-62 appear to have begun to crush the pulsar wind nebula, possibly contributing to its elongated shape. (Note: the orientation of this image has been rotated by 24 degrees so that north is pointed to the upper left.)

Aviation touches us. Even if you didn't fly today, something you needed did. Did you know that NASA-developed technology is on board every U.S. commercial aircraft and in every U.S. control tower? That's why we like to say "NASA's with you when you fly."

The visualization is a product of a simulation called a “Nature Run.” The Nature Run ingests real data on atmospheric conditions and the emission of greenhouse gases and both natural and man-made particulates. The model is then left to run on its own and simulate the natural behavior of the Earth’s atmosphere. This Nature Run simulates January 2006 through December 2006.___

SLS Engine Section Barrel Hot off the Vertical Weld Center at Michoud

The barrel for the engine section of NASA's new rocket, the Space Launch System, is taken off the Vertical Weld Center at NASA's Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans. The barrel is flight hardware to be used on the first uncrewed test flight of the 70-metric-ton configuration of the rocket. The engine section, made up of the barrel and a ring -- also welded at Michoud -- will hold four RS-25 engines that will power the core stage of the SLS. The core stage, towering more than 200 feet tall with a diameter of 27.5 feet, will store cryogenic liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen that will feed the vehicle’s RS-25 engines.

Hubble Reveals a Super-Rich Galactic Neighborhood

This new image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows the super-rich galaxy cluster Abell 1413. Located between the constellations of Leo (The Lion) and Coma Berenices, the cluster is over 2 billion light-years from Earth. This image is dominated by a large and highly elliptical galaxy called MCG+04-28-097, with a halo of stars extending for more than 6.5 million light-years.

The galaxies at the center of Abell 1413 are found to be very highly elliptical whereas those at the periphery are more spherical.

Abell 1413 is part of the Abell catalog, a collection of over 4,000 rich clusters of galaxies fairly close to Earth — at least from a cosmological perspective — their light took less than 3 billion years to reach us. The clusters are called rich due to the huge number of galaxies they play host to. Abell 1413 isobs... more »

The clusters are called rich due to the huge number of galaxies they play host to. Abell 1413 is observed to contain more than 300 galaxies held together by the immense gravity of the cluster.

The strong interactions between these galaxies cause the material in the cluster to be heated to extremely high temperatures of almost 100 million degrees. Because of this, the cluster emits very strong X-ray radiation.

Visible distortions in the image can be seen in the form of arcs, caused by gravitational lensing. Gravitational lensing occurs when the intense gravity of the cluster bends space-time around it, causing a range of bizarre and beautiful optical phenomena for galaxies located in the background.

This image was created from optical and near-infrared exposures taken with the Wide Field Channel of Hubble’s Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS).

Sunrise on Saturn

A new day dawns on Saturn as the part of the planet seen here emerges once more into the Sun's light.

With an estimated rotation period of 10 hours and 40 minutes, Saturn's days and nights are much shorter than those on Earth.
This view looks toward the sunlit side of the rings from about 25 degrees above the ringplane. The image was taken with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on Aug. 23, 2014 using a spectral filter which preferentially admits wavelengths of near-infrared light centered at 939 nanometers.

The view was acquired at a distance of approximately 1.1 million miles (1.8 million kilometers) from Saturn and at a Sun-Saturn-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 127 degrees. Image scale is 67 miles (108 kilometers) per pixel.

IceBridge researchers continued their Antarctic work with a run of four flights in a row that targeted different science sites in western Antarctica.

On Nov. 5, the IceBridge team carried out a survey of the Ferrigno and Alison ice streams and the Abbot Ice Shelf and ice along the Eights Coast. Weather forecasts showed clear conditions in West Antarctica, which typically only last for a few days. Less certain was how cloud cover would look in the Bellingshausen Sea, home of one of the mission’s highest priority flights. That uncertainty is what led mission planners to the decision they made.

The Nov. 5 survey was a new design that incorporated elements of two previously flown missions.

After completing those back and forth lines, the team headed on to the Abbott Ice Shelf, measuring a region last surveyed during IceBridge’s first campaign in 2009.

NASA’s Operation IceBridge images Earth's polar ice in unprecedented detail to better understand processes that connect the polar regions with the global climate system. IceBridge utilizes a highly specialized fleet of research aircraft and the most sophisticated suite of innovative science instruments ever assembled to characterize annual changes in thickness of sea ice, glaciers, and ice sheets. In addition, IceBridge collects critical data used to predict the response of earth’s polar ice to climate change and resulting sea-level rise. IceBridge also helps bridge the gap in polar observations between NASA's ICESat satellite missions.

Seen here is a view of Mount Murphy in Antarctica's Marie Byrd Land seen on the Nov. 7, 2014, IceBridge survey flight.

Throwback Thursday: How Satellite Laser Ranging Got its Start

Fifty years ago, NASA announced the first successful tracking of a satellite using a laser, a technique now standard for precisely determining satellite orbits.

The landmark experiments were conducted at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and the results publicized on Nov. 13, 1964. Before the end of the decade, the technique had gone international, with five stations in the U.S. and France equipped for laser ranging. These days, more than 40 stations are in operation, located on every continent except Antarctica.

Fifty years ago, NASA announced the first successful tracking of a satellite using a laser, a technique now standard for precisely determining satellite orbits.

The landmark experiments were conducted at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and the results publicized on Nov. 13, 1964. Before the end of the decade, the technique had gone international, with five stations in the U.S. and France equipped for laser ranging. These days, more than 40 stations are in operation, located on every continent except Antarctica.

The appeal of these measurements is their precision. In 1964, microwave radars for tracking satellites had a range accuracy up to about 250 feet (75 meters). NASA’s initial announcement about satellite laser ranging reported a range accuracy up to about 10 feet (3 meters) – about 25 times better.

The giant black hole at the center of the Milky Way may be producing mysterious particles called neutrinos. If confirmed, this would be the first time that scientists have traced neutrinos back to a black hole.
The evidence for this came from three NASA satellites that observe in X-ray light: the Chandra X-ray Observatory, the Swift gamma-ray mission, and the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR).

Our New Horizons spacecraft comes out of hibernation for the last time on Dec. 6. Between now and then, while the Pluto-bound probe enjoys three more weeks of electronic slumber, work on Earth is well under way to prepare the spacecraft for a six-month encounter with the dwarf planet that begins in January: http://go.nasa.gov/1xS1rQn

A filament (which at one point had an eerie similarity to a snake) broke away from the Sun and out into space on Nov. 1, 2014. This video covers just over three hours of activity. 

Watch: http://youtu.be/XfJasw4N5-A

This kind of eruptive event is called a Hyder flare. These are filaments (elongated clouds of gases above the Sun's surface) that erupt and cause a brightening at the Sun's surface, although no active regions are in that area. It did thrust out a cloud of particles but not towards Earth. The images were taken in a wavelength of extreme UV light.

Also happening today: #Orion has been hoisted onto rocket ahead of its first spaceflight in December: http://1.usa.gov/1xydS5C 

Our Orion spacecraft is now at its launch pad after completing its penultimate journey in the early hours Wednesday. It arrived at Space Launch Complex 37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida at 3:07 a.m. EST, where the spacecraft then was lifted onto a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket in preparation for its first trip to space.

Orion will travel almost 60,000 miles into space Thursday, Dec. 4 during an uncrewed flight designed to test many of the spacecraft’s systems before it begins carrying astronauts on missions to deep space destinations.
