Washington, Apr 19 (IBNS): A relatively large near-Earth asteroid discovered nearly three years ago will fly safely past Earth on Apr 19 at a distance of about 1.1 million miles (1.8 million kilometers), or about 4.6 times the distance from Earth to the moon, said astronomers.
Washington, Apr 1 (IBNS): On Apr 1, 2017, comet 41P will pass closer than it normally does to Earth, giving observers with binoculars or a telescope a special viewing opportunity.
Mountain View, Feb 23 (IBNS): Tech giant Google on Thursday dedicated a doodle to celebrate NASA's latest discovery, where the agency found out about seven Earth-like exoplanets.
Washington, Feb 11 (IBNS): Comet hunters still have a chance to see comet 45P/Honda-Mrkos-PajduÅ¡Ã¡kovÃ¡ in the next few days using binoculars or a telescope. Itâ€™s the first of a trio of comets that will -- between now and the end of 2018 -- pass close enough to Earth for backyard observers to try to spot and for scientists to study using ground-based instruments.
Washington, Jan 24 (IBNS): GOES-16, the first spacecraft in NOAAâ€™s next-generation of geostationary satellites, has sent the first high-resolution images from its Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) instrument. Included among them are a composite color full-disk visible image of the Western Hemisphere captured on January 15, 2017. Created using several of the ABIâ€™s 16 spectral channels, the full-disk image offers an example the satelliteâ€™s advanced technology.
Washington , Dec 15 (IBNS): Scientists from NASA and three universities have presented new discoveries about the way heat and energy move and manifest in the ionosphere, a region of Earthâ€™s atmosphere that reacts to changes from both space above and Earth below.
New York, Nov 8 (IBNS): Beginning this month, NASA is launching a suite of six next-generation, Earth-observing small satellite missions to demonstrate innovative new approaches for studying our changing planet.
Washington, Oct 14 (IBNS): The moon experiences a heavier bombardment by small meteoroids than models had predicted, according to new observations from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft.
California, June 23 (IBNS) Along the Bellingshausen Sea coast of West Antarctica, ice has been retreating inland being lost to the sea.
