  •   jmrabin Brrrr!!! 15h
  •   nagunak @nasagoddard love you guys you are the best! 15h
  •   jwc958 @nasagoddard I was born and raised in #Greenbelt. Love that little town and love NASA! 14h
  •   cheezeball25 It was almost 45 degrees out. It was warm, to say the least 14h
  •   kemalengin2 9h
  •   inkedbaker we're excited about the near freezing temps, too! that means the Cleve is out of the negative and single digits! :) 4h

lindsayirving Go to @nasagoddard to check out the first ever dynamic global map of rain and snowfall. I'm stoked! In the clip (Apr-Sept 2014), notice how storm systems essentially bypass California. Image: NASA Goddard Space Flight Center #nasagoddard #globalprecipitation #rain #earthrightnow 22h

The galaxy pictured here is NGC 4424, located in the constellation of Virgo. It is not visible with the naked eye but has been captured here with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope.

Although it may not be obvious from this image, NGC 4424 is in fact a spiral galaxy. In this image it is seen more or less edge on, but from above, you would be able to see the arms of the galaxy wrapping around its center to give the characteristic spiral form.

In 2012, astronomers observed a supernova in NGC 4424 — a violent explosion marking the end of a star’s life. During a supernova explosion, a single star can often outshine an entire galaxy. However, the supernova in NGC 4424, dubbed SN 2012cg, cannot be seen here as the image was taken ten years prior to the explosion. Along the central region of the galaxy, clouds of dust block the light from distant stars and create dark patches.

To the left of NGC 4424 there are two bright objects in the frame. The brightest is another, smaller galaxy known as LEDA 213994 and the object closer to NGC 4424 is an anonymous star in our Milky Way.

What connects Earth's largest, hottest desert to its largest tropical rainforest?

The Sahara Desert is a near-uninterrupted brown band of sand and scrub across the northern third of Africa. The Amazon rainforest is a dense green mass of humid jungle that covers northeast South America. But after strong winds sweep across the Sahara, a tan cloud rises in the air, stretches between the continents, and ties together the desert and the jungle. It’s dust. And lots of it.

For the first time, a NASA satellite has quantified in three dimensions how much dust makes this trans-Atlantic journey. Scientists have not only measured the volume of dust, they have also calculated how much phosphorus – a natural plant fertilizer present in Saharan sands from part of the desert’s past as a lake bed – gets carried across the ocean from one of the planet’s most desolate places to one of its most fertile.

ما هو الرابط بين الصحراء الأكبر والأكثر سخونة، واكبر الغابات الممطرة في العالم؟

تمكن الخبراء في وكالة ناسا لعلوم الفضاء وللمرة الاولى من رصد وتقدير كميات هائلة من الغبار العابر للقارات من الصحراء الكبرى في شمال افريقيا الى غابات الأمازون في شمال شرق قارة امريكا الجنوبية. عملية تقدير كمية الغبار المنتقل عبر المحيط الأطلسي تمت عن طريق قمر صناعي خاص يستخدم تقنية التصوير ثلاثي الأبعاد الشاهد ان كل سنة يوصل لغابات الأمازون ٢٧ مليون طن من الغبار القادم من الصحراء الكبرى في شمال افريقيا وان الغبار هذا يحمل معه عناصر مفيده للغابات كسماد طبيعي فسبحان الله اخيرا عرفت فايدة الغبار

nasagoddard NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility supported the successful launch of three Terrier-Oriole suborbital rockets for the Department of Defense between 2:30 and 2:31 a.m. today, Feb. 24, from NASA’s launch range on the Eastern Shore of Virginia.

The next launch from the Wallops Flight Facility is a NASA Terrier-Improved Malemute suborbital sounding rocket between 6 and 9 a.m. on March 27. The rocket will be carrying the Rocksat-X payload carrying university student developed experiments.

Russian man named Vassilyev and his first wife, whose name is unknown, hold the record for the most children a couple has parented. She gave birth to a total of 69 children – sixteen pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets – between year 1725 and 1765, in a total of 27 births. 67 of the 69 children born were said to have survived infancy.(Vassilyev also had six sets of twins and two sets of triplets with a second wife, for another 18 children in eight births; he fathered a total of 87 children.) Doubts have been raised about the veracity of the claim. ( The photo is not of the family mentioned, just for imagining easier the collection of so many family members )
