A guide to interesting stuff going on in space science, space exploration, and space advocacy.



 



Go for GOLD, SES-14!

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 10:35:57 -0600

While we can measure properties of these upper layers using ground-based instruments, satellite-borne remote sensing instruments can give us a more frequent, global, and often higher spatial resolution perspective. And that is precisely what NASA’s Global-scale Observations of the Limb and Disk (GOLD) mission will deliver.

Ten times the solar system reminded us sample collection is hard

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 09:52:38 -0600

Some of the biggest discoveries we make in planetary science rely on the seemingly simple act of picking up and analyzing pieces of other worlds. When things go awry, scientists and engineers can sometimes squeeze amazing science out of a tough situation.



Simulating Mars in the Middle East

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 06:00:05 -0600
