  1. NASA announces Successful Test of Sample Return TechnologyRead the original story w/Photo

    Sunday Jun 17 | Clarksville Online

    Honeybee Robotics in Pasadena, California, flight tested its pneumatic sampler collection system, PlanetVac, on Masten Space Systems' Xodiac rocket on May 24th, launching from Mojave, California, and landing to collect a sample of more than 320 grams of top soil from the surface of the desert floor. "The opportunity to test a technology on Earth before it is destined for another planet allows researchers and mission planners to have confidence that once the technology arrives to its space destination it will work," said Ryan Dibley, NASA Flight Opportunities program campaign manager.


  2. NASA assessment shows Antarctica Ice Losses have Tripled since 2012, Sea Levels Rising FasterRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Jun 15 | Clarksville Online

    Ice losses from Antarctica have tripled since 2012, increasing global sea levels by 0.12 inch in that timeframe alone, according to a major new international climate assessment funded by NASA and the European Space Agency . According to the study, ice losses from Antarctica are causing sea levels to rise faster today than at any time in the past 25 years.

  11. NASA using new Technology to observe Carbon in Earth's AtmosphereRead the original story w/Photo

    Saturday Jun 2 | Clarksville Online

    It's a scientific conundrum with huge implications for our future: How will our planet react to the increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere? That seemingly simple question is particularly tricky because carbon - an essential building block for life on Earth - does not stay in one place or take only one form. Carbon in its many forms, both from natural and human-caused sources, moves within and among the atmosphere, the ocean and land as our living planet breathes.
