Goddard Space Flight Center & National Aeronautics

The Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) is a major NASA space research laboratory established on May 1, 1959 as NASA's first space flight center. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is the agency of the United States government that is responsible for the nation's civilian space program and for aeronautics and aerospace research. 2.0/5

The Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center (JSC) is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's center for human spaceflight training, research, and flight control. The center consists of a complex of one hundred buildings constructed on 1,620 acres (656 ha) in Houston, Texas.[2] Johnson Space Center is home to the United States astronaut corps and is responsible for training astronauts from both the U.S. and its international partners. It is often popularly referred to by its central function during missions, Mission Control. The center, originally known as the Manned Spacecraft Center, grew out of the Space Task Group formed soon after the creation of NASA to co-ordinate the US manned spaceflight program. A new facility was constructed on land donated by Rice University and opened in 1963. On February 19, 1973, the center was renamed in honor of the late U.S. president and Texas native, Lyndon B. Johnson.[3][4] JSC is one of ten major NASA field centers. Contents [hide] 1 History 1.1 Apollo program 1.2 ...

National Aeronautics and Space Administration Image posted on NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Flickr account to inform the public that online activities of NASA are suspended during the shutdown NASA will furlough 97% of its staff, leaving fewer than 600 out of more than 18,000 employees on the job. NASA will continue to support the astronauts on the International Space Station and the agency will maintain spacecraft that have already launched. However, work with unmanned spacecraft will be minimal. The Hubble Space Telescope, Curiosity and Opportunity Mars rovers will continue to operate, but analysis of the data it collects will cease. Work on any spacecraft that have not yet launched will stop.[116][117][118] The NASA.gov website, NASA TV, the organization's cable and IPTV network, were replaced by messages referring to the shutdown.[119] NASA's LADEE mission will be in the critical phase of entering the Moon's orbit and so a few crews will be working on maintaining the spacecraft. No experiments will ...
National Aeronautics and Space Administration scientists claim to have discovered a third radiation belt around the earth, which may lead to a revision of a more than 50-year-old theory about the planet's radiation zones. The Van Allen radiation belts surrounding the earth were thought to be just two giant swaths of radiation, first discovered in 1958, the American space agency said. NASA launched twin Van Allen Probes on August 30, 2012 to create a detailed map of the region and catalogue a variety of energies and particles in these radiation belts. Just three days after launch, scientists asked that the Relativistic Electron Proton Telescope be turned on early in order that its observations would overlap with another mission called Solar, Anomalous, and Magnetospheric Particle Explorer, that was soon going to de-orbit and re-enter earth's atmosphere. Shortly before REPT turned on, solar activity on the sun had sent energy towards Earth that caused the radiation belts to swell. The REPT instrument made o ...
Hi CC friends. Ice in Antarctica and Greenland is disappearing faster and may drive sea levels higher than predicted this century, according to leaked United Nations documents. Greenland’s ice added six times more to sea levels in the decade through 2011 than in the previous 10 years, according to a draft of the UN’s most comprehensive study on climate change. Antarctica had a fivefold increase, and the UN is raising its forecast for how much the two ice sheets will add to Earth’s oceans by 2100.

Photographer: Joe Raedle/Getty Images The changes in the planet’s coldest areas are a “very good indicator” of a warming planet, according to Walt Meier, a research scientist with the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration. “It’s an early warning system,” Meier said by phone fromNASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. “When you ...
Ozone Layer and Antarctic Ozone Hole 2015 2007-2017. Very large holes in the ozone layer over the Antarctic continent predicted by NASA during the years 2007-2017. "Our current predictions right now [are] that . . . [f]or about the next ten years or so [2007 - 2017], we'll see very large ozone holes. Then after about 2017 or 2018 in there, [the ozone holes will] start getting smaller and smaller and smaller. By 2070 [the ozone layer] should be back to a 1980 level." (Dr. Paul Newman, senior atmospheric physicist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, quoted in Maria Frostic, "Exploring Ozone," Ozone Resource Page, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Washington, DC, October 19, 2007, Track 1:57) 2015. Antarctic ozone hole will continue to expand through 2015. “Some existing agreements, even when implemented, will not be able by 2015 to reverse the targeted environmental damage they were designed to address. The Montreal Protocol is on track to restore the stratospheric ozone layer over ...
