NASA reveals new mode of ice loss in Greenland Rink Glacier in western Greenland A new NASA study has revealed a new mode of ice loss in Greenland that may increase the potential for sustained loss of mass as the climate continues to warm up, with implications for the future rate of sea level rise.Read More
NASA probes detect man-made bubble around Earth Man-made bubble around Earth Humans have long been shaping Earth's landscape, but now scientists know that we also can shape our near-space environment with radio communications.Read More
NASA Mars rover to study fluid-carved valley's origin Fluid-carved valley's origin Mars rover Opportunity has reached the main destination of its current two-year extended mission -- an ancient fluid-carved valley incised on the inner slope of a vast crater's rim.Read More
Water signature found in Neptune-sized planet's atmosphere Neptune-sized planet Combining observations from NASA's Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes, researchers have detected strong water signature in the atmosphere of a distant Neptune-sized planet.

Two new NASA rockets to study Earth's magnetic fieldThe US space agency is planning to launch two sounding rockets over Norway this winter to study how particles move in a region near the North Pole where Earth's magnetic field is directly connected to the solar wind.
NASA finding bolsters Indian theory on black holeAn Indian astrophysicist says the recent observation by NASA scientists of giant flares of X-rays from a black hole confirms his theory that the so-called black holes are not "true" black holes but actually ultra hot balls of fire like our Sun.
NASA celebrates 15 years of human presence on ISSThe International Space Station (ISS) with humans on board turned 15 on November 2 and NASA is celebrating the event with a delightful musical video.The video details interesting facts about the orbiting laboratory station in twanging verse.

NASA completes heat shield testing for future Mars vehiclesNASA has successfully completed key heat shield tests for the future exploration spacecrafts that will scout the Red Planet for signs of life. NASA’s Adaptive Deployable Entry and Placement Technology (ADEPT) is a mechanically-deployable heat shield concept using carbon fabric
NASA's Mars orbiter clicks locations shown in 'The Martian'The Matt Damon-starrer “The Martian” begins with a region on Red Planet called Acidalia Planitia - the landing site for the sci-fi film's “Ares 3” mission. The HiRISE camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has now captured this site associated with the best-selling novel and now a Hollywood movie.
Why did NASA not direct Curiosity to look for water?While the world is going gaga over the presence of flowing brine or salty water on the Red Planet, questions are now being asked why the US space agency did not direct its Curiosity rover to the place where water proofs were recorded for a closer look.
NASA set to burn astronauts' poop in spaceThe US space agency NASA has released some interesting data about several of its year-long “human research” programmes on the International Space Station (ISS) -- and its astronaut Scott Kelly's poop and the effect of space on the waste is one of them. During his 342-day-long stay on the orbiting laboratory, Kelly will produce nearly 180 pounds (82 kg) of poop.
NASA's mini satellites set to transform space explorationMove over large satellites. NASA is working on miniaturised satellites, known as nanosatellites or CubeSats, that can fit in the palm of your hand and are providing new opportunities for space science.
Grow plants if you want to curb urban heat: NASAThe presence of vegetation in urban areas - along the roads, in the parks and in your neighbourhood - can limit city heat effect to a great extent, says a NASA study
After finding water, NASA's Mars rover scouts new locationAfter investigating the "Marias Pass" region where it found a geological contact zone and rocks that are unexpectedly high in silica and hydrogen content, NASA's Curiosity Mars rover has now moved to an entirely new location on the Red Planet. new-location
NASA calls public to design smartwatch app for astronauts"The US space agency is seeking designs from freelancers across the world for a smartwatch app that can be used by the astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS) in space research."
