Astronomers using data from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope have identified carbon dioxide in a specific region on the icy surface of Europa. Analysis indicates that this carbon likely originated in the subsurface ocean and was not delivered by meteorites or other external sources.
NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has conducted a new investigation into K2-18 b, an exoplanet that’s 8.6 times larger than Earth. The telescope discovered carbon-bearing molecules like methane and carbon dioxide, adding to recent studies that suggest K2-18 b could be a Hycean exoplanet. This type of exoplanet has the potential to have a hydrogen-rich…
NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has uncovered new details in Supernova 1987A with its NIRCam (Near-Infrared Camera) instrument. Structures, some only visible in infrared wavelengths, provide clues into the development of supernovas over time.
June 2023 was the hottest June ever recorded, according to NASA’s global temperature analysis. This analysis is based on data collected from weather stations, research stations, ships, and ocean buoys. Scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York analyze this data to account for uncertainties and maintain consistent methods for calculating global…
NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope has completed its first year of science operations, delivering on its promise to reveal the universe in unprecedented detail. In celebration of this milestone, NASA has released an image of a small star-forming region in the Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex, captured by the telescope.
A group of global scientists recently discovered a new carbon compound in space using NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope. This groundbreaking discovery of methyl cation (CH3+) in a young star system called d203-506 is the first of its kind and is significant as it assists in the formation of more complex carbon-based molecules.
NASA and Boeing announced on Monday that the aircraft created through the agency’s Sustainable Flight Demonstrator project has been given the designation X-66A by the U.S. Air Force.
NASA has chosen Blue Origin of Kent, Washington to create a human landing system for the Artemis V mission to the Moon. The Artemis program aims to expand human exploration of the Moon by uncovering new scientific discoveries and preparing for future astronaut missions to Mars.
The second phase of NASA’s Deep Space Food Challenge concluded with the announcement of eight winning teams who received a total of $750,000 in prizes. These teams will now advance to the third and final phase of the competition.
NASA’s second super pressure balloon (SPB) carrying EUSO-2 had a successful launch today and was in flight for more than 24 hours. However, it developed a leak, and as a safety measure, flight controllers decided to terminate the flight over the Pacific Ocean, near New Zealand.
