    Hurricane Maria has caused catastrophic flooding in Puerto Rico and left a wake of heavy rainfall that NASA measured using a fleet of satellites in space. NASA satellite imagery also saw Maria's eye close up as it tracked across Puerto Rico and re-open after its exit. Calculating Maria's…
  2. NASA's Hubble spots 'unique' binary asteroid between Mars and Jupiter

    Sott.net - Technology 09.21 / 23:23 sott.net
    Astronomers, with the aid of the Hubble Space Telescope, have discovered a unique binary object lurking in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. The object, an asteroid first discovered by Spacewatch back in 2006, was reexamined again last September. Hubble took a number of images of the asteroid, designated 288P, just before it made its closest approach to the sun. Upon studying the images, boffins realised that it was not one but two asteroids of roughly the same size and mass,…

  6. Global Aerospace Corporation to present Pluto lander concept to NASA

    Eurekalert.org - Astronomy 09.21 / 21:11 eurekalert.org
    (Global Aerospace Corporation) Under a grant from NASA's NIAC program, GAC is developing an integrated 'entrycraft' design that can decelerate and gently land on the surface of Pluto from a speed of over 30,000 mph using only drag from Pluto's ultra-thin atmosphere and just a few pounds of propellant. Once at the surface, the vehicle can switch to 'hopper' mode to hop around the surface, tens or hundreds of kilometers at a time, investigating surface features of…
