Researchers discovered computer-led chemical analysis of a sample is a powerful tool for searching for ET biochemistry without making assumptions about it.
You hear people panicking about climate change. But what about direct heating? Even if there was no climate change, our energy use still matters depending on how many people live on the planet.
Is going to space safe for human health? Two astronauts, who were twins, volunteered for a research study to look at how the body changes when it goes into space. #Twins, #NASA, #NSBRI, #Spaceflight, #HumanSpaceflightProgram
A mysterious cold gas shooting out of the center of the Milky Way galaxy has left scientists puzzled.
Another study testing the limits of life in space, this time on the moon! #moon #lifeinspace #humanspaceflight #NASA #cyanobacteria #astrobiology
How can we study far away plants using Earth environments? By looking at the bottom of the ocean! #hydrogen #hydrothermalvents #astrobiology
This article explores incentives for projects spanning millennia, and determines which of those incentives would provide the most successful approach.
Space flight is known to cause blurry vision in astronauts. Swelling of the brain tissue may be the reason, according to a study using MRIs.
Students inspired to study science by participating in real NASA missions In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a group of scientists and teachers came together to create an exciting new educational resource, named Ad Astra Academy. The goal? To develop brief, intense programs to help encourage academically at-risk students to develop critical thinking skills.
Can teachers get students in underrepresented, disadvantaged communities to feel excited about science if they get to participate in real NASA missions? Turns out, probably! #teaching #StemEd
How do we find the effects of extreme #space radiation on human health? Answer lies with yeast in your bread! @NASA scientists are launching #BioSentinel later this year. #Astrobiology By @strayologist
