Astronomers have created a black hole panorama using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, Spitzer Space Telescope and ground-based telescopes.
New data of sea-level heights from early February 2007, by the Jason altimetric satellite show that the tropical Pacific Ocean has transitioned from a warm (El Niño) to a cool (La Niña) condition during the prior two months.
Using a camera developed and built by JPL, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope took this Jupiter image in support of the New Horizons mission.
David Jefferson has helped navigate JPL spacecraft to their exotic destinations -- Mars and two comets.
NASA-funded researchers are refining a tool that could not only check for the faintest traces of life's molecular building blocks on Mars, but could also determine whether they have been produced by anything alive.
During Cassini's flyby of Titan on Feb. 22, the radar mapper imaged Titan's surface and crisscrossed over six previously mapped areas. Stay tuned for those views.
As JPL's first Associate Chief Information Officer, Dr. Magalene Powell-Meeks is responsible for making sure all of the lab's information technology needs are met.
Ed Massey has dedicated 20 years of his life working on NASA/JPL missions and projects, including the Voyager and Ulysses missions.
Calling all explorers! Tour JPL with our new Virtual Field Trip site. Stops include Mission Control and the Rover Lab.
Cassini successfully completed a flyby of Saturn's moon Titan on Monday, Jan. 29, aiming its infrared eyes on the moon's murky atmosphere, peering through its thick, smoggy veil, and mapping surface features.
A National Science Foundation medal goes to two scientists whose work on NASA's Two Micron All-Sky Survey enabled "a thrilling variety of explorations in astronomy and astrophysics."
To modern-day climatologists, Charles Dickens' "A Tale of Two Cities" could serve as a metaphor for weather records in Los Angeles since the the city's official downtown weather station was relocated.
An international team of astronomers, including JPLer Jason Rhodes, used NASA's Hubble Space Telescope to create the first three-dimensional map of dark matter in the universe.
They are the celestial equivalent of sonograms. But their hazy outlines and ghostly features do not document the in-vivo development of a future taxpayer.
Comets may be more than just simple conglomerations of ice, dust and gases. Some may be important windows on the early solar system.
A team of scientists found a new class of organics in comet dust captured from Comet Wild 2 in 2004 by NASA's Stardust spacecraft.
Two new NASA-funded studies of ozone in the tropics using NASA satellite data not previously available are giving scientists a fuller understanding of the processes driving ozone chemistry and its impacts on pollution and climate change.
Just as kits of little plastic bricks can be used to make everything from models of the space shuttle to the statue of liberty, comets are looking more and more like one of nature's toolkits for creating life.
JPL Research scientist Dr. Alberto Behar took in the "show" at the moulin this summer. But unlike Paris' famous Moulin Rouge, the star of this moulin was Mother Nature herself, presenting a dazzling display of moving water and ice.› View This Video
