The second of three missions as part of NASA's Antarctica Long Duration Balloon Flight Campaign was successfully launched at 8:10 a.m. EDT, Dec. 2.
Multiple scans from the Copernicus Sentinel-2A satellite have been stitched together to create this complete image of Switzerland.
There are several large fires burning in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee and NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite captured an image of the smoke generated from them.
The Sentinel-1 satellites have shown that the Millennium Tower skyscraper in the centre of San Francisco is sinking by a few centimetres a year. Studying the city is helping scientists to improve the monitoring of urban ground movements, particularly for subsidence hotspots in Europe.
Sentinel-3A captured part of Japan on 12 May in this false-colour image. Sitting on a volcanic zone in the Pacific Ring of Fire, Japan is prone to earthquakes - like the one felt earlier this week. In 2011 the Tōhoku earthquake and subsequent tsunami caused widespread damage and claimed over 15 000 lives.
Starting on 21st November 2016 and under cool northeasterly winds, dust has been lifted from the border provinces of Iran-Pakistan (Sistan-Balochistan) and drifted as a thin veil over the Arabian Sea and the Sea of Oman.
Heroes of Antarctic exploration have played a crucial role in research that suggests the area of sea ice around Antarctica has barely changed in size in 100 years.
As Tropical Storm Otto formed in the southwestern Caribbean north of Panama on Nov. 21 the Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite analyzed the strengthening storm.
A new multi-institutional study of the temporary slowdown in the global average surface temperature warming trend observed between 1998 and 2013 concludes the phenomenon represented a redistribution of energy within the Earth system, with Earth's ocean absorbing the extra heat.
During a news briefing on Nov. 17, officials from NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), previewed the mission of GOES-R, the first spacecraft in a new series of NASA-built advanced geostationary weather satellites.
The Sentinel-2A satellite takes us over the Gibson Desert in Western Australia in this false-colour image.
Three federal entities, including NASA, are reaffirming their commitment to search for Antarctic meteorites, to help learn more about the primitive building blocks of the solar system and answer questions about Earth's neighbors like the moon and Mars.
This Sentinel-1 radar composite image features the Virunga Mountains in East Africa: a chain of volcanoes stretching across Rwanda's northern border with Uganda and east into the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Part of Chile's Bernardo O'Higgins National Park in southern Chile is pictured in this Landsat-8 image from 8 January 2016. The park includes much of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field - the world's second largest contiguous ice field beyond the poles.
The Punjab province in India has even more fires brewing than it did last week.
Arctic sea ice, the vast sheath of frozen seawater floating on the Arctic Ocean and its neighboring seas, has been hit with a double whammy over the past decades
Sentinel-2A brings us over the snowy landscape of the Putorana Plateau in northern Central Siberia.
Two new studies by researchers at NASA and the University of California, Irvine (UCI), detect the fastest ongoing rates of glacier retreat ever observed in West Antarctica and offer an unprecedented direct view of intense ice melting from the floating undersides of glaciers.
