A first-of-its-kind sensor, developed by a team at the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics, will measure sunlight reflecting from Earth with more accuracy than any instrument in space or on the ground.
Ahead of the historic space mission, crew members joined CU Boulder researchers Allie Anderson and Torin Clark to talk about how the eye changes in space, experiencing "space motion sickness" and more.
NASA’s Orion spacecraft blasted off this morning from Florida in the first stage of its 25-day journey to circle the moon and return to Earth. Two CU Boulder scientists talk about what lies in store for the space agency’s ambitious Artemis Program.
CU Boulder geologist Lisa Mayhew serves on the science team for NASA’s Perseverance rover, an intrepid machine that has crossed over nearly 8 miles of the surface of Mars—and is helping to recreate the forces that shaped this planet into what it looks like today.
On Monday, NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test slammed into an asteroid called Dimorphos at speeds of more than 14,000 miles per hour. CU Boulder aerospace engineer Jay McMahon breaks down how this test could one day help to protect life on Earth.
In two years, a dust analyzer designed and built at CU Boulder will launch aboard NASA’s Europa Clipper spacecraft, aiding in its mission to determine if Jupiter's icy moon Europa has conditions that could support life.
NASA's Artemis 1 mission could launch for the moon as early as Saturday, Sept. 3. Aboard will be an experiment designed by engineers at CU Boulder studying how radiation in space could impact human astronauts.
For decades, a community of "data stewards" has toiled behind the scenes to build records showing that humans, and not the sun, are responsible for driving the planet's climate into dangerous territory.
