Sun, Earth, Universe

1. How is the Earth changing over time?

1984 and 2012 sea ice satellite images. A record low was set in 2012.


2. What does the Sun look like up close?

Follow activity on the Sun and its effect on Earth.


3. What’s with the colorful images?


4. How does NASA find exoplanets?


5. Watch how NASA puts a satellite together.

The James Webb Telescope team decided to build the mirror in segments on a structure which will fold up, like the leaves of a drop-leaf table, so that it can fit into a rocket. The mirror would then unfold after launch.


6. Five tools are better than one.

This image combines data from five spaced telescopes with different instruments: the VLA (radio) in red; Spitzer Space Telescope (infrared) in yellow; Hubble Space Telescope (visible) in green; XMM-Newton (ultraviolet) in blue; and Chandra X-ray Observatory (X-ray) in purple.
