NASA has released a summary report on findings from a panel that investigated the unsuccessful 2011 launch of the agency's Glory spacecraft.
NASA has selected the members of the board that will investigate the unsuccessful March 4 launch of the Glory spacecraft.
NASA's Glory mission ended Friday after the spacecraft failed to reach orbit following its launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
NASA's Glory mission launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California Friday at 5:09:45 a.m. EST failed to reach orbit.
NASA's Glory spacecraft is scheduled for launch on Friday, March 4.
Preparations for the launch of NASA's Glory mission from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California have been suspended temporarily.
The launch of NASA’s Glory spacecraft from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California is currently planned for no earlier than Friday, Feb. 25 at 5:09 a.m. EST.

NASA's next Earth-observing satellite mission, called Glory, is scheduled to launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California early on the morning of Feb. 23.
A new satellite should help scientists pinpoint just how much of an effect on climate aerosols can have.
The launch of NASA's Glory spacecraft aboard an Orbital Sciences Taurus XL rocket is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 23.
The Glory spacecraft is ready to survey the world's atmosphere for aerosols while the Taurus Xl preps for its return to flight.
Every second, millions of tons of hydrogen fuse into helium in the sun’s core as part of a massive chain of thermonuclear reactions that yield the energy equivalent of billions of exploding hydrogen bombs.
Good things sometimes come in small packages. For NASA's Launch Services Program, one of those packages is a Poly Picosatellite Orbital Deployer, or P-POD.
Engineers and technicians at Vandenberg Air Force base, Calif., are preparing the Earth-observing satellite Glory for launch on Feb. 23.
The Glory mission will improve our understanding of how the sun and tiny atmospheric particles called aerosols affect Earth's climate.
The Glory spacecraft will offer a new stream of data that climatologists will use to improve the accuracy of climate models.
NASA will hold a media briefing on Thursday, Jan. 20, at 1 p.m. EST, about the agency's next Earth-observing satellite mission, Glory.
Glory, the latest Earth-observing satellite developed by NASA, arrived Tuesday at Vandenberg in preparation for launch.
A convoy of "A-Train" satellites has emerged as one of the most powerful tools scientists have for understanding our planet’s changing climate.
Engineers have successfully replaced a faulty component that could have had serious consequences for the Glory satellite, NASA's next climate-monitoring mission.

Scientists have produced a new map of Fine Particulate Matter particles 2.5 micrometers or less in diameter (PM2.5), using MISR/MODIS data.
The U.S. Department of Energy led this year’s Carbonaceous Aerosol and Radiation Effects Study (CARES), including NASA researchers, to analyze the way these particles affect the area downwind of Sacramento.
Aerosols don't just come from spray cans. Any airborne particle or droplet, whether from a canister, the smokestack of a factory, or a dust storm, is an aerosol.
