Science Always Starts With a Question …


This Week’s Question: Where Does the Sun’s Energy Come From?

The Sun’s heat influences all of the planets, moons and other objects in our solar system. How does a big ball of hydrogen create all that heat? Check out this video and downloadable poster to find out!

Help NASA Search the Realm Beyond Neptune at Backyard Worlds: Planet 9
Audience: All Educators and Students
Project Timeframe: Ongoing

Is a large planet at the fringes of our solar system awaiting discovery, a world astronomers call Planet Nine? Using data from NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer mission, NASA scientists are looking for this planet and for new brown dwarfs in the backyard of the solar system. But they need your help! Finding these dim objects requires the human eye to comb through the images to distinguish moving celestial bodies from ghosts and other artifacts. Participants in this citizen science project will share the credit for their discoveries in any scientific publications that result from the project.

For more information and to learn how to participate, visit the “Backyard Worlds: Planet 9” website at http://backyardworlds.org.

To learn more about NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer and its mission to image the entire sky in the infrared, visit https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/WISE/main/index.html.

Science Always Starts With a Question …


This Week’s Question: How Does NASA Transport the James Webb Telescope?

Transporting something as large and as delicate as the James Webb Space Telescope is no easy task. A one-of-a-kind transporter, police escorts, an enormous military plane and a meticulously planned route were all needed to move the telescope safely from NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Texas to California, and one step closer to launch!

https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2018/follow-the-sttars-to-find-nasas-webb-telescope


Have You Seen This?


Set to launch in 2019, the James Webb Space Telescope is an infrared telescope with a 6.5-meter mirror and a sunshade the size of a regulation tennis court!

To learn more about the telescope, visit https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/webb/observatory/index.html.
