Yuri's Night is an international celebration of human space achievement designed to raise awareness and support for space exploration.
04.06.07 - NASA scientists have discovered evidence that a mysterious red glow, seen throughout the Milky Way and other galaxies but never on Earth, radiates from extremely fine dust clusters that cause the glow by combining molecular forces that oppose each other.
04.04.07 - During an upcoming meeting, scientists will explain how NASA's Kepler spacecraft will look for Earth-size planets orbiting distant stars.
03.23.07 - NASA scientists and teachers will step back in time as they investigate the Mojave Desert to study the unique geologic formations and the supremely adapted microbes that call it home.
03.22.07 - Searching for clues to the potential for life on Mars, NASA scientists recently explored microbial communities in some of the world’s oldest, driest and most remote deserts, in China’s northwest region, and found evidence suggesting that conditions there may be similar to those in certain regions of Mars.
03.21.07 - A passionate teacher can make any subject come alive for students, and NASA is helping to fuel that passion. On March 25-30, 2007, NASA's Spaceward Bound project will take a team of NASA scientists and 40 teachers from throughout the country to study the unique geologic formations of California's Mojave Desert.
03.14.07 - A recent NASA study links natural and human-made aerosol particles to how much Earth warms or cools.
03.12.07 - NASA satellites reveal that Amazon forests are neither evergreen nor dependent on constant rain, and are capable of manufacturing their seasons.
03.12.07 - Not all of the competitive excitement in the month of March is for college basketball. Forty-eight high school robotics teams will battle on March 15-17 at the FIRST Robotics Silicon Valley Regional at the Event Center at San Jose State University.
