Teams will fan out across the Sierra Nevada on Thursday to perform their final snow survey of the season, a closely watched rite of spring that helps determine how much water will flow to farms and cities in coming months. But 18,000 feet above the...
Alan Wood, a former official at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, died at his Sierra Madre home on April 18. He was 90. A Navy lieutenant during World War II, Wood played a role in the 1945 battle for Iwo Jima. While his LST was beached under Japan's Mount...
President Obama's budget proposal, unveiled on Wednesday, would cut funding for planetary exploration at NASA by roughly $200 million, although it still funds several high profile missions being planned out of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada...
For the first time since it landed on Mars last year, scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory can’t send commands to the rover Curiosity. The one-ton rover and its fellow Martian probes are on a “summer break” until May 1....
NASA's Curiosity rover has found evidence that Mars could have once held life, scientists said Tuesday. The one-ton rover drilled into a rock last month and collected a sample that contained essential ingredients for life on Earth, including hydrogen,...
The supersonic parachute that helped the NASA rover Curiosity land safely on Mars eight months ago has become part of an accidental science experiment. The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter snapped photos of the 100-pound parachute between August and...
Hydrogen peroxide is used to clean counter tops here on Earth, but Jupiter’s moon Europa may use it for a more important endeavor — to supply energy to simple life forms. Scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Caltech...

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory may be most famous for sending Curiosity to Mars and Voyager to the edge of the solar system, but some of its coolest technology is being used right here on Earth. For the last month, a manned C-20A aircraft owned by...
It could take several months for aerospace experts to design a manned mission to a Martian moon. Students pulled off the feat in five days. Caltech hosted a competition on its Pasadena campus this week that divided 32 students from 21 different...
It was welcome news to Earthlings: The Voyager 1 spacecraft had seemingly crossed a momentous threshold and become the first man-made object to enter interstellar space. "Voyager 1 has left the solar system," the American Geophysical Union declared...
