The leading theory for the moon's formation got in trouble recently when it was revealed that the moon and Earth are isotopic twins. Now highly precise measurements of the isotopes of an element that was still condensed at the 'cut off' temperature when material started to fall back to Earth suggest a dramatic solution to the problem.
NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the US Southwest and captured infrared data on the clouds associated with former Tropical Cyclone Newton.
Satellite imagery showed that Post-Tropical Cyclone Hermine was just a swirl of clouds with no rainfall off the coast of southeastern Massachusetts on Thursday, Sept. 8. Just two days earlier, the GPM satellite saw that Hermine was still generating some rainfall.
The effects of man-made climate change can hamper scientific projections of how key global weather patterns will act in the future, a new study has revealed.
NASA's Aqua satellite provided an infrared view of Tropical Storm Lester that showed a lack of thunderstorm development around its center of circulation.
NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites caught Hurricane Newton's two landfalls in Mexico.
NOAA's National Hurricane Center issued their final warning on Post-Tropical Cyclone Hermine yesterday, Sept. 6 at 2 p.m. EDT. NASA's Aqua satellite captured an image of the storm at that time and showed clouds stretching from New Jersey to Maine.
A group of James Cook University scientists led by Emeritus Professor Ross Alford has designed and built an inexpensive incubator that could boost research into how animals and plants will be affected by climate change.
NASA and NOAA satellites continue to provide data as Post-Tropical Cyclone Hermine continues to linger south of Long Island, New York. The winds from the storm continue to affect surf from the Mid-Atlantic to Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
Tropical Storm Lester passed the Hawaiian Islands over the holiday weekend of Sept. 4 through 6 and NASA's Aqua satellite captured an image of the weakening storm over 900 miles away from Honolulu.
