|NASA SCIENTISTS CONFIRM LIQUID WATER ON EARLY EARTH|
|Research funded partly by NASA has confirmed the existence of liquid water on the Earth's surface more than 4 billion years ago. |
Scientists have found that the Earth had formed patterns of crust formation, erosion and sediment recycling as early as 4.35 billion years ago. Their findings came during a study of zircon crystals formed during the earliest period of Earth's history, the Hadean Eon (4.5 billion to 4.0 billion years ago)...
|NASA AMES PARTNERS WITH FIVE NEW EXPLORER SCHOOL TEAMS|
|NASA announced the 50 new 2005 Explorer Schools. The NASA Explorer Schools are the heart of a unique educational program that reaches elementary-to-high-school pupils in all 50 states, Puerto |
Rico and the District of Columbia.
Five of the new Explorer Schools teams in the western United States will establish a three-year partnership with NASA Ames Research Center, located in California's Silicon Valley, to provide their students with NASA science and technology experiences and access to unique NASA resources and materials. The school teams are: Nikiski
North Star and Sterling Elementary Schools located in Alaska's Kenai Peninsula; Hellgate Elementary School, Missoula, Mont.; Ed Von Tobel Middle School, Las Vegas, Nev.; Toppenish Middle School, Toppenish, Wash.; and Johnson Junior High School, Cheyenne, Wyo...
|NASA CO-SPONSORS NANOTECHNOLOGY CONFERENCE IN SILICON VALLEY|
|Hundreds of industry leaders are expected to attend the two-day Nano 2005 Conference in Silicon Valley June 7-8 to hear noted experts discuss the latest innovations in nanotechnology. |
Co-sponsored by NASA Ames Research Center, NASA Tech Briefs, Nanotech Briefs, mPhase Technologies Inc. (Norwalk, Conn.) and NanoDynamics Inc. (Buffalo, N.Y), the conference will be held at the Westin Santa Clara Hotel, 5101 Great America Parkway, Santa Clara, Calif...
|NASA SCIENTISTS SOLVE MARS SOUTH POLE MYSTERY|
|NASA scientists have solved an age-old mystery by finding that Mars' southern polar cap is offset from its geographical south pole because of two different polar climates. |
Weather generated by the two martian regional climates creates conditions that cause the red planet's southern polar ice to freeze out into a cap whose center lies about 93 miles (150 kilometers) from the actual south pole, according to a scientific paper included in the May 12 issue of the journal, Nature...
