  • In Pictures Space photos of the day: Snowed in

    Summer thaw was underway on the fringe of eastern Greenland when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite passed overhead and captured this image on July 13, 2007. Inland (l.), snow and ice make a white blanket, while closer to sea (c. and r.) the annual snow has retreated from much of the rocky coastline and from the surface of some glaciers, which appear slightly gray. In the fjords, meltwater carrying finely ground sediment, crushed by the movement of glaciers over rock, colors the water turquoise.

  • In Pictures Space photos of the day: Space Training

    In this 1960 photograph, the seven original Mercury astronauts participate in US Air Force survival training exercises at Stead Air Force Base in Nevada. Pictured from left to right are: L. Gordon Cooper, M. Scott Carpenter, John Glenn, Alan Shepard, Virgil I. Grissom, Walter Schirra, and Donald K. Slayton. Portions of their clothing have been fashioned from parachute material, and all have grown beards from their time in the wilderness. The purpose of this training was to prepare astronauts in the event of an emergency or faulty landing in a remote area.

    Solar Probe Plus will plunge directly into the sun’s atmosphere at approximately 4 million miles from the sun’s surface into a region that no other spacecraft has ever encountered. The spacecraft folds its solar panels into the shadows of its protective solar shade, leaving just enough of the specially-angled panels in sunlight to provide power closer to the Sun.

    This enhanced-color image of the northern hemisphere of Saturn taken by Voyager 1 on November 5, 1980 at a range of 5.5 million miles shows a variety of features in Saturn's clouds. Time-lapse images of cloud features like those shown in this image not only provide information on how these storms evolve with time, but provide a way to measure atmospheric wind speeds.

  • NASA's new jumbo-jet-mounted telescope takes its first snapshots

    Peering out of a hole in the side of a jumbo jet, NASA's new Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) captured its first images of Jupiter and of the galaxy M82.

    An early space station concept drawing appeared in the 1959 Space The New Frontier brochure, produced by NASA. The station was designed as a laboratory to study the physical and behavioral effects of prolonged space flight, and could have possibly been crewed by 50 people.

    Should planes fly in Iceland volcano ash? Be careful, study says.

    Some European airlines have begun test flights to see if it is safe to fly through the volcano ash from Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull. But a NASA study says a little ash can cause serious problems.
