A Black Hole Close-Up, and a Telescope as Big as the World

The Event Horizon Telescope will give astronomers an extreme close-up when our galaxy's black hole lights up.

Neutron tomography technique reveals phase fractions of crystalline materials in 3-dimensions

The method overcomes limitations of existing techniques which are limited to the surface or small-sized specimens, and allows a 3-D representation of the phase fractions within the sample volume. The work has just been published in the journal "Advanced Materials".

Tiny magnets, huge fields: Nanoscale ferromagnetic electrodes create chemical equivalent of solid-state spin valve

In the study of ways to determine the position of and manipulate magnetic nanoparticles – a capability that would benefit a wide range of applications – there's good news and bad: While a magnetic gradient force field (a magnetic field that varies with respect to position) can accomplish this, it is limited in its ability to affect most paramagnetic materials – that is, materials that respond to magnetic fields, but do not retain magnetic properties when those fields are removed – the exception being sufficiently small magnetic nanoparticles, which can behave like paramagnets at room temper

Reporters Invited to See Orion, Speak with NASA Managers at Navy Days-Los Angeles

A test version of NASA's new Orion spacecraft will be at the Port of Los Angeles on Wednesday, Aug. 6, following testing with the U.S. Navy. Media are invited from 6 to 9 a.m. PDT to see the craft and learn about NASA's deep space exploration plans, which include sending astronauts to an asteroid and Mars.

NASA Hosts 3 p.m. EDT Teleconference with Mars 2020 Principal Investigators

NASA will host a teleconference at 3 p.m. EDT today with the principal investigators of the selected instruments that will fly aboard the agency’s Mars 2020 rover.

NASA's Fermi Space Telescope Reveals New Source of Gamma Rays

Observations by NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope of several stellar eruptions, called novae, firmly establish these relatively common outbursts almost always produce gamma rays, the most energetic form of light.

Intern Poster Exposition to be Held Aug. 5 at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center; Media Invited

On Aug. 5, more than 140 interns at the Marshall Center will participate in a poster exposition to highlight the completion of their internships.

Hubble Shows Farthest Lensing Galaxy Yields Clues to Early Universe

Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have unexpectedly discovered the most distant galaxy that acts as a cosmic magnifying glass.

NASA Announces Mars 2020 Rover Payload to Explore the Red Planet as Never Before

The next rover NASA will send to Mars in 2020 will carry seven carefully-selected instruments to conduct unprecedented science and exploration technology investigations on the Red Planet.
