NASA Releases New Imagery of Asteroid Mission

NASA released Thursday new photos and video animations depicting the agency's planned mission to find, capture, redirect, and study a near-Earth asteroid. The images depict crew operations including the Orion spacecraft's trip to and rendezvous with the relocated asteroid, as well as astronauts maneuvering through a spacewalk to collect samples from the asteroid.

NASA Prepares for First Virginia Coast Launch to Moon

In an attempt to answer prevailing questions about our moon, NASA is making final preparations to launch a probe at 11:27 p.m. EDT Friday, Sept. 6, from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Va.

NASA Awards Environmental Engineering and Occupational Health Services Contract

NASA has awarded a contract to HPM Corp. of Kennewick, Wash., to provide environmental engineering and occupational health services to the agency's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

Astronomers Use Hubble Images for Movies Featuring Space Slinky

Astronomers have assembled, from more than 13 years of observations from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, a series of time-lapse movies showing a jet of superheated gas -- 5,000 light-years long -- as it is ejected from a supermassive black hole.

New results from Daya Bay neutrino experiment announced

The international Daya Bay Collaboration has announced new results about the transformations of neutrinos - elusive, ghostlike particles that carry invaluable clues about the makeup of the early universe. The latest findings include the collaboration's first data on how neutrino oscillation – in which neutrinos mix and change into other "flavors," or types, as they travel – varies with neutrino energy, allowing the measurement of a key difference in neutrino masses known as "mass splitting."

High-precision measurement of subatomic shape shifting and new result on differences among neutrino masses

New results about the oscillation of neutrinos -- elusive, ghostlike particles that carry invaluable clues about the makeup of the early universe -- have been announced by the Daya Bay Collaboration, an international experiment taking place outside of Hong Kong.

Researchers open a door for solid state physics: Laser processes observed with X-rays on a solid

Researchers report a new way to use X-rays to probe the properties of solid materials. They were able to show that solids lend themselves to X-ray analysis based on nonlinear physical effects. Until now, this could only be done using laser analysis. Their results could potentially redefine what future lightsources ought to look like.

Better insight into molecular interactions

How molecules in biochemical solutions do interact, is a question of great importance for understanding processes in catalysts, functional materials and even in organisms. Until now, scientists could have a look at these interactions by spectroscopy, but it was hard to distinguish the different interactions, which take place simultaneously. A groundbreaking work by HZB-scientist Emad Flear Aziz and theoretical physicist Oliver Kühn from University Rostock could now change the game.

NASA Selects Advanced Research and Technology Contract

NASA has selected Universities Space Research Association (USRA) of Columbia, Md., to support research and technology efforts at the agency's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland.

NASA Awards Contract for Project and Engineering Support

NASA has selected Millennium Engineering and Integration Co. of Arlington, Va., to support flight and mission projects, and research and development at the agency's Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif.
