  • NASA Launches Revolutionary Earth Science Satellite Measuring Soil Moisture Cycle
    At dawn this morning (Jan. 31) NASA launched an advanced Earth science satellite aimed at making measurements of our planet’s surface soil moisture and freeze/thaw states from space that will revolutionize our understanding of the water, energy, and carbon cycles driving all life on Earth. NASA’s new Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) observatory thundered off […]
  • Awesome New Radar Images of Asteroid 2004 BL86
    New video of 2004 BL86 and its moon Newly processed images of asteroid 2004 BL86 during it brush with Earth Monday night reveal fresh details of its lumpy surface and orbiting moon. We’ve learned from both optical and radar data that Alpha, the main body, spins once every 2.6 hours. Beta (the moon) spins more slowly. The images […]
  • It Looks Like an Asteroid Strike Can’t Cause a Worldwide, Dinosaur-Killing Firestorm
    For decades, scientists have debated the cause of the mass extinction that wiped out the dinosaurs and other life 65 million years ago. While the majority of researchers agree that a massive asteroid impact at Chicxulub, Mexico is the culprit, there have been some dissenters. Now, new research is questioning just a portion of the […]
