From the distant reaches of the Universe, to black holes, and the Martian surface, NASA explores some of the most far out parts of space. But NASA also does research much closer to home. In fact, NASA Earth Science satellites are taking part in the management and recovery of an ecosystem right in our backyard, the Chesapeake Bay. Note: By studying the landscape around the Chesapeake Bay, NASA spacecraft are helping land managers figure out how to battle the harmful pollutants that have added to...

The six batteries currently on board the observatory are all original equipment. After more than 17 years of continuous operation the batteries are degrading. In the current condition, the Hubble electrical power system requires careful management of system state of charge to assure adequate power margins for all operational scenarios. This will become more difficult, and will start to constrain operations. The replacement of the two Hubble battery modules (each containing three batteries) will...

The last U.S. spacecraft mission to Venus was in 1989 with the launch of Magellan. Even though Magellan spent the next five years radar mapping the surface and gathering high resolution gravity data, much remains a mystery about our so-called sister planet. Did Venus experience a run-a-way greenhouse effect at some point in its history? Why is the surface pressure 90 times greater on Venus then on Earth? Why is the planet so hot? These are only a few of the question that must be answered if we...

Scientists using NASA's Wilkinson Microwave Anistropy Probe (WMAP) have created the most detailed portrait of the infant Universe. By capturing the afterglow of the Big Bang, called the cosmic microwave background (CMB), we now believe the Universe to be 13.7 billion years olf. Encoded in these patterns is much-anticipated information about the fundamental properties of the early Universe. WMAP launched on June 30, 2001.

It is believed that after the Big Bang, the universe originally decelerated in its expansion, but then 'changed gears' and began to accelerate. The unknown force causing this recent acceleration is dubbed the 'Dark Energy.'

A black hole is a massive object whose gravitational field is so intense that no light (electromagnetic radiation) can escape it. Around many black holes is an accretion disk of material emitting energy as it falls into the black hole. This animation shows a cutaway of the accretion disk. The gap between the accretion disk and the black hole represents the innermost orbit matter can be in before plunging into the black hole. The radius of this innermost orbit depends on whether the black hole...

The Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere (AIM) mission will provide the first detailed exploration of Earth's unique and elusive noctilucent or night shining clouds that are found literally on the "edge of space". Located near the top of the Earth's mesosphere (the region just above the stratosphere), very little is known about how these polar mesospheric clouds form or why they vary. They are being seen at lower latitudes than ever before and have been growing brighter and more...

Aerosols smaller than 1 micrometer are mostly formed by condensation processes such as conversion of sulfur dioxide (SO2) gas (released from volcanic eruptions) to sulfate particles and by formation of soot and smoke during burning processes. After formation, the aerosols are mixed and transported by atmospheric motions and are primarily removed by cloud and precipitation processes. Video courtesy of United States Geological Survey.
