Plants grown in lunar regolith collected by Apollo missions successfully grew from seed to sprout, lending insight into future lunar agriculture prospects.
Geologically young regions of Pluto’s southern hemisphere were likely resurfaced by cryovolcanism, data from the New Horizons spacecraft reveal.
Remote sensing experts may lose a key tool in the fight against climate change.
Two studies showcase new methods for analyzing GRACE data that better match the land surface, producing clearer estimates of mass variations.
The laser-based instruments aboard the GRACE-FO satellites may be extended to other geophysical applications to collect data on other submonthly mass changes in Earth’s system.
Amateur astronomers sifting through NASA’s public data uncovered a long-orbit gas giant that could help scientists understand how these planets form.
The flux, observed with NASA’s MAVEN spacecraft, is in line with models and 1–2 orders of magnitude lower than that of oxygen ions.
Researchers applied machine learning algorithms to several distinct chemical compositions of Mars and suggest that these algorithms could be a powerful tool to map the planet’s surface on a large scale.
