A countdown of the top 5 solar discoveries from the Sun-Earth Connection Education Forum. These include the discoveries of sunspots, the solar cycle, the heliosphere, aurora formation, and space weather. An introduction plus Number 5 in the Top 5 Solar Discoveries, which include the discovery of sunspots by Galileo in 1609. For more info: http://sunearthday.nasa.gov
Nearly every spring since 1991, researchers including William Krabill of NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Va., have flown on a NASA aircraft over Greenland, collecting measurements of ice thickness from an altitude of about 2,000 feet. Now, on March 30, Krabill and colleagures return to collect updated measurements. This time, however, the mission is set to be more extensive than ever before, and takes place with new urgency. Radars and lasers new to the Greenland flights will be tested and calibrated with meaturements currently made from the Ice, Cloud, and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat). Launched in January 2003, [More]

The night was filled with energy and pulsing beats as hundreds at Goddard Space Flight Center joined millions around the globe to celebrate Yuri’s Night – a world space party celebrating man’s achievements in space. Goddard may have joined 171 parties in 41 countries in celebrating Yuri’s Night, but Goddard’s celebration couldn’t be matched, it was a galactic event to remember.

This past January, NASA scientist Robert Bindschadler led an expedition to a previously untouched part of Antarctica that may be one of the best places to gauge how global warming is affecting the continent. Pine Island Glacier Ice Shelf (PIG for short) is believed to be among the most vulnerable spots ot melting on Earth, but it’s also among the most remote. While satellite observations provide a wide-angle view of the action on the glacier, boots on the ground with high tech drills and sensors are needed to provide the close up shots to fill in the blanks.

Though NASA researcher Bob Bindschadler had hoped to return to Pine Island Glacier Ice Shelf and continue his research during the 2009 season, this video explians how plans hit a snag. Sometimes science takes time, especially when it comes to dealing with the forbidding conditions of Antarctica. For more info: http://www.nasa.gov/topics/earth/features/pineisland_return.html

This one-of-a-kind multimedia journey of Earth as observed from space combined Williams’ music with NASA imagery. Bella Gaia was presented to students and teachers around the world during two webcasts from the Goddard studio.

Pioneer rocket scientist Robert H. Goddard once said, ‘It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.’ Fifty years after its inception, NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center continues to live by these words, advancing science and engineering to new limits once thought impossible as it explores of the Earth, the sun, the solar system, and the universe. Our very own Chris Smith shot, edited, and composited this amazing video all on his own! For more info: http://www.nasa.gov/centers/goddard/50th
April 29, 2009, marked the tenth anniversary of the launch of NASA’s Earth Observatory. For the last decade, the Earth Observatory has been using the stunning images and data provided by NASA satellites to tell the story of our planet and the scientists who are working to help us understand it.
