On Monday, October 3, 2011, NASA's Centennial Challenges program awarded the largest prize in aviation history, created to inspire the development of more fuel-efficient aircraft and spark the start of a new electric airplane industry. Three teams successfully met all requirements and competed for the $1.65 million purse in the CAFE Green Flight Challenge, sponsored by Google, over the skies of Santa Rosa, California.

On Feb. 11, 2011, NASA Ames hosted more than 55 Twitter followers or "tweeps" from 18 states and 5 countries to learn about the Center's research activities. Recent planetary discoveries by the Kepler mission and science flights by NASA's SOFIA aircraft were two featured topics of discussion. The "tweeps" toured several facilities at Ames, including the Kepler labs, where mission data is analyzed; the Vertical Motion Simulator, the world's largest motion-based flight...

NASA's Kepler mission has discovered its first Earth-size planet candidates and its first candidates in the habitable zone, a region where liquid water could exist on a planet's surface. Five of the potential planets are near Earth-size and orbit in the habitable zone of smaller, cooler stars than our sun. Kepler also found six confirmed planets orbiting a sun-like star, Kepler-11. This is the largest group of transiting planets orbiting a single star yet discovered outside our solar system....

The Kepler mission's science team announced its latest finding at a press conference on Monday, Dec. 5, 2011. The team announced the confirmation of Kepler-22b, its first planet found in the "habitable zone," the region where liquid water could exist on a planet's surface. The planet is about 2.4 times the radius of Earth, orbits around a star similar to our sun and is located 600 light-years away. Scientists don't yet know if Kepler-22b has a predominantly rocky, gaseous or liquid...

NASA's Kepler spacecraft has discovered Kepler-10b, its first confirmed rocky planet and the smallest transiting exoplanet discovered to date. Kepler-10b is only 1.4 times the size of Earth and has an average density of 8.8 grams per cubic centimeter, similar to that of an iron dumbbell. The planet orbits its star in only 0.84 days and is not in the habitable zone, where liquid water could exist.

NASA's Kepler mission has discovered the first Earth-size planets orbiting a sun-like star outside our solar system. The planets, called Kepler-20e and Kepler-20f, are too close to their star to be in the so-called habitable zone where liquid water could exist on a planet's surface, but they are the smallest exoplanets ever confirmed around a star like our sun. Kepler-20e is slightly smaller than Venus, measuring 0.87 times the radius of Earth. Kepler-20f is slightly larger than Earth,...

The public was invited to NASA's Ames Research Center to observe a live televised broadcast of the final space shuttle launch on July 8, 2011. The STS-135 mission is the final flight of NASA's Space Shuttle Program. The orbiter Atlantis is carrying a system to investigate the potential for robotically refueling existing spacecraft and bring back a failed ammonia pump to help NASA better understand and improve pump designs for future systems. It also will deliver spare parts to sustain space...

Dr. David Blake, Principal Investigator of the CheMin instrument, gives a demonstration of his invention at the Kennedy Space Center. Short for "Chemistry & Mineralogy," CheMin is one of 10 science instruments aboard the Mars Science Laboratory, NASA's latest Mars rover. CheMin will identify the minerals in samples of powdered rock or soil in a search to determine if conditions were right to support life on Mars. For more information about NASA Ames, please visit...

Nobel Laureate Dr. Baruch Blumberg, a pioneer in the field of Astrobiology, was one of history's greatest explorer-scientists. In 1976, he shared the Nobel Prize for Medicine for his discovery for the antigen of the virus that causes Hepatitis B. In 1999, he was the founding director of the NASA Astrobiology Institute (NAI). In 2008, he became the first Distinguished Scientist of both the NAI and the NASA Lunar Science Institute. Dr. Blumberg passed away on April 5, 2011 at the NASA Ames...

Since its launch in March, 2009, the Kepler Mission has announced the discovery of 9 confirmed exoplanets (or planets outside our solar system). This video explores how the team works to combine photometry from the spacecraft, data from ground-based observatories and precise asteroseismic analysis to determine if Earths are common or rare in our Galaxy.

Scientists from NASA's Kepler mission have been busy recently. The team has announced the discovery of Kepler-22b, its first confirmed planet in the habitable zone of its solar system, 600 light years away. They have also been combing through light data captured by the telescope and have released the latest number of planetary candidates team members have identified. Staff and scientists also got together (along with a special guest!) recently to celebrate 1,000 days of science operations by...
