NASA research scientist Wayne Esaias uses honey bees as tiny data collectors to understand how climate change is affecting pollination. His citizen-scientist project, HoneyBeeNet, compares bee data from across North America to satellite imagery in order to gain a big-picture perspective of how our warming climate is affecting both plants and pollinators. Note: NASA's Wayne Esaias sees honeybees as important data collectors to help us understand our changing climate. For complete transcript,...

A pulsar is generally believed to be a rapidly rotating neutron star that emits pulses of radiation (such as x-rays and radio waves) at known regular intervals. A millisecond pulsar is one with a rotational period in the range of 1-10 milliseconds. When a pulsar is created in a supernova, is is born spinning, but slows down over millions of years. However, if the pulsar is in a binary system, the influx of material into its accretion disk may help the pulsar spin up to the millisecond range....

It is believed that after the Big Bang, the universe originally decelerated in its expansion, but then 'changed gears' and began to accelerate. The unknown force causing this recent acceleration is dubbed the 'Dark Energy.' This visualization flies through a series of galaxy clusters, the largerst gravitationally-bound objects in the Universe. Note: This animation flies through a series of galaxy clusters.

This dominant cosmological theory suggests the Universe began nearly 13.7 billion years ago, expanding rapidly from a very dense and incredibly hot state. Eventually, stars ignited and galaxies slowly formed. The Big Bang theory has been imporved and advanced especially through NASA's Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) and WMAP missions. This animation conceptualizes these explosive beginnings of the Universe. Note: This animation begins with a pinpoint of light as the Big Bang, and continues to...

A millisecond pulsar is one with a rotational period in the range of 1-10 milliseconds. As the pulsar picks up speed through accretion, it distorts due to subtle changes in the crust.

When aerosols heat the atmosphere, they create an unstable environment where clouds can't thrive. The suppression of clouds leads to further warming of the atmosphere by solar radiation.

One critical new area of aerosol research involves how the varied particles impact clouds. Clouds play an important role in regulating Earth's climate, and without aerosols, clouds could not exist. The introduction of a larger number of aerosols will modify cloud's natural properties, leading to clouds that are bigger, brighter, and longer lasting. Two time lapsed scenes with zooms to particle-level conceptual animations help to illustrate this concept. In a pristine environment, like the ocean...

The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) is NASA's scouting mission to prepare for a return to the moon. One of its primary objectives will be to assess the lunar terrain for areas that would provide safe landing sites for future missions, both manned and unmanned, that plan to touch down on the moon's surface. This video helps explain how LRO will accomplish its objective.The raw animation sequences used to create this video feature as well as high resolution stills from the video can be viewed...

IBEX is a new NASA mission that will study the interaction between the solar wind and the material beyond our Solar System called the interstellar medium. The solar wind flowing out of the sun inflates a bubble that we call the heliosphere. IBEX's job is to study those boundaries and understand how they really work and tell us how the heliosphere is able to do the important job of protecting us here on Earth as well as astronauts in space from the dangerous galactic cosmic rays.To learn more...

The GLAST mission launched on June 11, 2008 and has been returning remarkable and revolutionary discoveries ever since. Recently renamed to the Fermi Space Telescope, after Nobel Prize winner Enrico Fermi, the mission is expected to discover dozens of new pulsars within its first year alone. The telescope is also giving us new insights into gamma-ray bursts and the massive jets that erupt from distant galaxies. Stay tuned -- the mission of NASA's Fermi telescope is just getting started.

Particles of matter in classical physics can be considered as objects that have a definite location in space at any given time. However, in quantum theory, particles are given a probability of being located in a particular space at a particular time.

Hubble was designed to use three of six onboard gyroscopes to meet its very precise pointing requirements, with the other three held as spares. Gyros have limited lifetimes, and three of the six (all installed in late-1999) are currently working. Following a thorough analysis and testing by engineers, it was determined that Hubble could operate productively on two gyros. After the implementation of three new control modes in Hubble's main computer, and major changes to Hubble's planning and...

Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) will have a broad range of inquiry, from early and distant galaxies beyond Hubble's current reach, to more nearby galaxies with "stories to tell" about their star formation histories, to the planets in our solar system. Along the way, "dark energy" will be seriously probed by WFC3. The instrument's key feature is its ability to span the electromagnetic spectrum from the near ultraviolet through the optical (to which our eyes are sensitive), and...

A new model of oddly shaped debris disks around stars incorporates the drag effect from interstellar gas on the disk's outermost small particles. Far from being empty, the space between stars is filled with patchy clouds of low-density gas. When a star encounters a relatively dense clump of this gas, the resulting flow produces a drag force on orbiting dust particles about one micrometer across, or about the size of particles in smoke. As the dust particles respond to the interstellar wind, a...

Encoded in these patterns is much-anticipated information about the fundamental properties of the early Universe. WMAP launched on June 30, 2001.
