Picture of the Day: Monster Saturn Storm

Cassini has been circling Saturn for years, but it’s still revealing spectacular things about the planet. Violent weather provides a great spectacle on Earth, as long as it doesn’t actually destroy anything, but it’s nothing compared with what’s happening on Saturn.

NASA’s Plans Through 2030: Mars, the Moon, and Asteroids [Infographic]

If there’s one agency that’s used to thinking ahead, that’s NASA. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has a lot of plans for the next two decades.

New Neptune moon discovered by astronomers

While astronomers tend to focus on the Universe beyond our Solar System, it seems that there are still secrets hidden in our own neighborhood. Neptune has another moon that no one knew about until now. Images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope shows that Neptune has another moon, senior research scientist Mark Showalter of the […]

Monster Saturn storm ate its own tail

Since gas giants are made up of, well, gas, it’s easy for giant storms to form around them. Saturn and Jupiter are always peppered with monster storms that ravage the planets. They don’t do any actual damage since there’s nothing there to damage, but they do make for some spectacular shots.

Picture of the Day: Venus

Artist’s impression of an active volcano on Venus. Results from a long-term study of Venus find evidence of a clear injection of sulphur dioxide into its upper atmosphere. One possible interpretation is that volcanic activity increased the sulphur dioxide component of the upper atmosphere, although an alternative is that a change in atmospheric circulation dredged […]

Global warming shifts Earth’s geographic poles

Since 2005 until present day, the Earth’s geographic North Pole has been steadily shifting towards the east. By the looks of it, the shift is one of several centimeters per year.

Picture of the Day: 3D Panorama from Mars

Curiosity is taking somewhat of a break. It’s not tired or anything, but the alignment of the Earth, Sun and Mars make it impossible to communicate with the rover.

Picture of the Day: Star Wrap

NASA’s Kepler space telescope observed Einstein’s theory of relativity in action recently as a white dwarf (a dense, burnt-out star) passed in front of a less massive (but larger) red dwarf star. As it did so, astronomers could see the “gravitational lensing” that bends the starlight.
