Record-Breaking Galaxy JADES-GS-z14-0 Discovered by Webb Telescope Sheds Light on Early Universe.

Over the last two years, scientists have utilized NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) to explore what astronomers call Cosmic Dawn, the period in the first few hundred million years after the Big Bang when the first galaxies formed. These early galaxies provide crucial insights into the evolution of gas, stars, and black holes during […]

NASA’s Lucy Spacecraft Unveils Complex Structures on Asteroid Dinkinesh During Historic Flyby.

  Panels a, b, and c each show stereographic image pairs of asteroid Dinkinesh taken by NASA’s Lucy spacecraft’s L’LORRI Instrument around closest approach on Nov. 1, 2023. Yellow and rose dots indicate the trough and ridge features, respectively. These images have been sharpened and processed to enhance contrast. Panel d shows a side view […]

New Evidence of Volcanic Activity on Venus Uncovered in Archival Magellan Data.

  This computer-generated 3D model of Venus’ surface shows the volcano Sif Mons, which is exhibiting signs of ongoing activity. Using data from NASA’s Magellan mission, Italian researchers detected evidence of an eruption while the spacecraft orbited the planet in the early 1990s. Direct geological evidence of recent volcanic activity on Venus has been observed […]

NASA Launches First Climate Satellite to Study Polar Heat Emissions.

  Rocket Lab’s Electron rocket lifted off from Launch Complex 1 at Māhia, New Zealand at 7:41 p.m. NZST on May 25, 2024 (3:41 a.m. EDT) carrying a small satellite for NASA’s PREFIRE (Polar Radiant Energy in the Far-InfraRed Experiment) mission. The first of two climate satellites designed to analyze heat emissions at Earth’s poles […]

Voyager 1 Resumes Science Data Transmission After Computer Issue.

  Voyager 1 has resumed returning science data from two of its four instruments for the first time since a computer issue arose in November 2023. The mission’s science teams are now working to recalibrate the remaining two instruments, with plans to do so in the coming weeks. This marks significant progress toward restoring the […]

Astronomers have discovered a ‘Death Star’ black hole in action.

A team of astronomers has studied 16 supermassive black holes that are firing powerful beams into space, tracking where these beams, or jets, are pointing now and where they were aimed in the past, as reported in our latest press release. Using NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) National Radio […]
