NASA's 2013 HS3 mission will investigate whether Saharan dust and its associated warm and dry air, known as the Saharan Air Layer favors or suppresses the development of tropical cyclones.
The study confirms long-held suspicions about how stellar-mass black holes produce their highest-energy light.
In this image, the twisted shape hides a number of features. In the very complex and disturbed central region, scientists have distinguished two nuclei, remains of two different galaxies.

Of the almost 900 known planets outside our solar system, this is the first to be found at such a great distance from its star.
Ocean waters melting the undersides of Antarctic ice shelves are responsible for most of the continent's ice shelf mass loss, a new study by NASA and university researchers has found.
MAVEN is designed to answer questions about the Martian atmosphere. Extremely high resolution ultraviolet imagery may help piece together the big picture.
On June 11, 2013, at 2 p.m. EDT, the sun erupted with a coronal mass ejection or CME, a solar phenomenon that can send billions of tons of solar particles into space that can affect electronic systems in satellites.

The early start of the 2013 season appears to be caused by a change in atmospheric “teleconnections,” connections between different layers of the atmosphere that operate over great distances.
The so-called Trifid of the North is a large, dusty region that is currently forming new stars. These stars are very hot and therefore appear to be very blue.
Using an innovative satellite technique, NASA scientists have determined that a previously unmapped type of wildfire in the Amazon rainforest is responsible for destroying several times more forest than has been lost through deforestation in recent years.
