Hubble Glimpses Faint Galaxy

Fri, 09/13/2019 - 07:30
This Hubble image focuses on an object named UGC 695, which is located 30 million light-years away within the constellation Cetus (the Sea Monster), also known as the Whale. UGC 695 is so faint that it is dimmer than the background brightness of Earth’s own atmosphere, which makes it tricky to observe.

Saturn's Rings Shine in Hubble's Latest Portrait

Thu, 09/12/2019 - 10:00
Saturn is so beautiful that astronomers cannot resist using the Hubble Space Telescope to take yearly snapshots of the ringed world when it is at its closest distance to Earth. These images, however, are more than just beauty shots. They reveal a planet with a turbulent, dynamic atmosphere.

NASA’s Hubble Finds Water Vapor on Habitable-Zone Exoplanet for 1st Time

With data from the Hubble Space Telescope, water vapor has been detected in the atmosphere of a super-Earth with habitable temperatures.

Satellite Data Record Shows Climate Change's Impact on Fires

Tue, 09/10/2019 - 14:30
While every fire needs a spark to ignite and fuel to burn, it's the hot and dry conditions in the atmosphere that determine the likelihood of a fire starting, its intensity and the speed at which it spreads. Over the past several decades, as the world has increasingly warmed, so has its potential to burn.

The public is invited to a free lecture called "A Mud Matter: The Recent Discovery of Organic Matter Preserved in 3-billion-year-old Mudstones on Mars," with Dr. Jennifer Eigenbrode, NASA research scientist. The talk will occur in the Library of Congress' Pickford Theater on Sept. 12.

Hubble Spots a Swarm of Stars

Fri, 09/06/2019 - 10:52
This Hubble image shows a dwarf galaxy named UGC 685. Such galaxies are small and contain just a tiny fraction of the number of stars in a galaxy like the Milky Way. Dwarf galaxies often show a hazy structure, an ill-defined shape, and an appearance somewhat akin to a swarm or cloud of stars — and UGC 685 is no exception.

NASA Research Gives New Insight into How Much Atmosphere Mars Lost

Thu, 09/05/2019 - 15:00
A key tracer used to estimate how much atmosphere Mars lost can change depending on the time of day and the surface temperature on the Red Planet. Previous measurements of this tracer – isotopes of oxygen – have disagreed significantly. Getting an accurate measurement is important to estimate how much atmosphere Mars once had before it was lost.
