  1. Tar Balls from California Oil Spill Litter Beach in NASA PhotoRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Jul 7 | Live Science

    Spotting dark, gooey and flammable tar on the beach - remnants from an oil spill in Southern California in May - just got a lot easier, thanks to NASA. The agency recently captured a light-sensitive image of tar-seeped sand and water in Santa Barbara to help officials study and respond to the spill.


  2. A Manned Mission to Mars: How NASA Could Do ItRead the original story w/Photo

    Jun 4, 2015 | LiveScience

    Putting boots on Mars by the end of the 2030s is not just a pipe dream, a new study suggests. NASA could land astronauts on the Red Planet by 2039 without breaking the bank, provided the space agency takes a stepwise approach that includes a manned 2033 trip to the Mars moon Phobos, according to the research.


  3. Antarctic Ice Shelf in Last Throes of CollapseRead the original story w/Photo

    May 15, 2015 | Live Science

    A vast Antarctica ice shelf that partly collapsed in 2002 has only a few years left before it fully disappears, according to a new study. Radar data reveals that the Larsen B ice shelf could shatter into hundreds of icebergs by 2020, researchers reported Thursday in the journal Earth and Planetary Science Letters.


  4. After Nepal Earthquake, Radar Saves Lives in a HeartbeatRead the original story w/Photo

    May 8, 2015 | Live Science

    Radar waves helped search and rescue teams detect the heartbeats of survivors trapped in collapsed buildings after the Nepal earthquake, according to NASA. Four men were found under as much as 10 feet of bricks, mud and other debris in the town of Chautara, in the Sindupalchowk district, the NASA statement said .


  5. Hear Eerie Sound Recording from the Edge of SpaceRead the original story w/Photo

    May 4, 2015 | LiveScience

    Eerie sounds from the edge of space were recorded for the first time in 50 years aboard a NASA student balloon experiment. Infrasound microphones captured the mysterious hisses and whistles 22 miles above the Earth's surface last year.


  6. Big Aftershocks May Occur at Edge of Large QuakesRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 30, 2015 | LiveScience

    Large aftershocks not only rattle nerves, they also can cause new destruction and injuries by further damaging structures hit by the initial earthquake. While there was no way to predict the deadly magnitude-7.8 earthquake that rocked Nepal on April 25, scientists are developing ways to forecast where the worst aftershocks will hit.

    This satellite image shows that parts of Pine Island Glacier flowed about 325 feet between March 3 and March 15, 2015. One of West Antarctica's largest glaciers surged a staggering 325 feet in less than two weeks this month, the European Space Agency reports.


  8. Waking Beasts: Underwater Volcanoes Roused by Ice AgesRead the original story w/Photo

    Feb 5, 2015 | Live Science

    The climate-driven rise and fall of sea level during the past million years matches up with valleys and ridges on the seafloor, suggesting ice ages influence underwater volcanic eruptions , two new studies reveal. And because volcanic chains suture some 37,000 miles of ocean floor, the eruptions could pump out enough carbon dioxide gas to shift planetary temperatures, the study authors suggest.
