  5. NASA studies the sun in soft x-raysRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Mar 24 | Science Daily

    At any given moment, our sun emits a range of light waves far more expansive than what our eyes alone can see: from visible light to extreme ultraviolet to soft and hard X-rays. In 2012 and 2013, a detector was launched on a sounding rocket for a 15 minute trip to look at a range of sunlight previously not well-observed: soft X-rays.

  6. Methane leaks from three large US natural gas fields in line with federal estimatesRead the original story

    Feb 18, 2015 | Science Daily

    Tens of thousands of pounds of methane leak per hour from equipment in three major natural gas basins that span Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Pennsylvania, according to airborne measurements published today. But the overall leak rate from those basins is only about one percent of gas production there -- lower than leak rates measured in other gas fields, and in line with federal estimates.

  10. NEOWISE: A yearlong look at the skyRead the original story w/Photo

    Jan 16, 2015 | Science Daily

    NASA's Near-Earth Object Wide-field Survey Explorer spacecraft discovered and characterized 40 near-Earth objects in the first year after the mission was re-started in December 2013. Eight of the discoveries have been classified as potentially hazardous asteroids , based on their size and how close their orbits could come to Earth's orbit.

    Dec 18, 2014 | Science Daily

    NASA's planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft makes a comeback with the discovery of the first exoplanet found using its new mission -- K2. The discovery was made when astronomers and engineers devised an ingenious way to repurpose Kepler for the K2 mission and continue its search of the cosmos for other worlds.

  15. Asteroid's size revealed for the first timeRead the original story w/Photo

    Nov 10, 2014 | Science Daily

    When the double asteroid Patroclus-Menoetius passed directly in front of a star on the night of Oct. 20, a team of volunteer astronomers across the U.S. was waiting. Observing the event, known as an occultation, from multiple sites where each observer recorded the precise time the star was obscured, yielded the first accurate determination of the two objects' size and shape.

  16. Combing the atmosphere to measure greenhouse gasesRead the original story w/Photo

    Oct 29, 2014 | Science Daily

    By remotely 'combing' the atmosphere with a custom laser-based instrument, researchers have developed a new technique that can accurately measure -- over a sizeable distance -- amounts of several of the major 'greenhouse' gases implicated in climate change. Photo illustration of NIST experiment using a pair of laser frequency combs to detect the simultaneous signatures of several 'greenhouse' gases along a 2-kilometer path between a NIST laboratory roof and a nearby mesa.
