North Carolina Volunteers Work Toward Cleaner Well Water – NASA Science

4 min read NASA Mission Flies Over Arctic to Study Sea Ice Melt Causes It’s not just rising air and water temperatures influencing the decades-long decline of Arctic sea ice. Clouds, aerosols, even the bumps and dips on the ice itself can play a role. To explore how these factors interact and impact sea ice … Read more

A Solar Neighborhood Census, Thanks to NASA Citizen Science

A Solar Neighborhood Census, Thanks to NASA Citizen Science

A small team of citizen scientists developed a tool called WISE View, using images from NASA’s WISE (Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer) mission, to easily stitch together images into animations. A larger group of volunteers then used those animations to find moving objects. “They’ve made the project more efficient for everyone else,” Kirkpatrick said. (WISE’s mission … Read more
