Latest JPL Stories
Students wishing to work at JPL have a number of options. Between its Education Office and the Human Resources Directorate, JPL offers 20 different programs to students, recent graduates, and faculty.
Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., have obtained the first images of asteroid 2007 TU24 using high-resolution radar data.
Nanotechnology may help revolutionize medicine in the future with its promise to play a role in selective cancer therapy. Researchers hope to boost the brain's own immune response against tumors by delivering cancer-fighting agents via nanotubes.
The radar system on the European Space Agency's Mars Express orbiter has uncovered new details about some of the most mysterious deposits on Mars: the Medusae Fossae Formation.
Vast, yet remote; frigid, yet teeming with life; stark and barren, yet serenely beautiful -- these are just a few of the contradictions of Earth's polar regions.
The first test images of Mars from NASA's newest spacecraft provide a tantalizing preview of what the orbiter will reveal when its main science mission begins next fall.
NASA's long-lived Mars rovers demand lots of care as they age and the Martian winter approaches. The period of minimum sunshine is more than 100 days away, but Spirit gets only enough power for about one hour per day of driving on flat ground. And the supply is dropping fast.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft may have found evidence of liquid water reservoirs that erupt in Yellowstone-like geysers on Saturn's moon Enceladus. The rare occurrence of liquid water so near the surface raises many new questions about the mysterious moon.
A study by NASA and university scientists is shedding new light on a mysterious, cyclical wave in Earth's atmosphere that at times profoundly affects our planet's weather and climate.
The joint NASA/Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales Topex/Poseidon oceanography satellite ceased operations after nearly 62,000 orbits of Earth. The spacecraft lost its ability to maneuver, bringing to a close a successful 13-year mission.
