Earth is a complex, dynamic system. For 60 years, we have studied our changing planet, and our understanding continues to expand with the use of new technologies. With data from satellites, instruments on the International Space Station, airborne missions, balloons, and observations from ships and on land, we track changes to land, water, ice, and the atmosphere. Application of our Earth observations help improve life now and for future generations.
Congress passed the National Aeronautics and Space Act, on July 16 and President Eisenhower signed it into law on July 29, 1958. NASA opened for business on Oct. 1, 1958. Our history tells a story of exploration, innovation and discoveries. The next 60 years, that story continues. Learn more: https://www.nasa.gov/60

Major hurricane Florence, seen from space, our mission to size up land and sea ice on Earth, and “catching big air” … another successful test for our Orion spacecraft … a few of the stories to tell you about – This Week at NASA! 15.09.2018, в 07:26
It's the night before launch, so set your alarms! Watch NASA TV Saturday, Sept. 15 at 8:10 a.m. Eastern (5:10 a.m. Pacific) for live coverage of the liftoff of NASA's ICESat-2 mission aboard a United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket. More: https://go.nasa.gov/2EXB6dx 14.09.2018, в 16:57
Cameras outside the International Space Station captured views of Hurricane Florence on Sept. 14 at 7:41 a.m. EDT minutes after the storm made landfall. NASA satellites track the storm: https://go.nasa.gov/2CEmDGQ Florence made landfall near Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina packing winds of 90 miles an hour. The National Hurricane Center said Florence is moving very slowly to the west at only 6 miles an hour, then is expected to turn to the southwest, increasing the threat for historic storm surge and catastrophic flooding to coastline areas and inland cities in North Carolina and South Carolina. 13.09.2018, в 16:40
High definition cameras outside the International Space Station captured new views of a somewhat weakened Hurricane Florence at 6:56 a.m. EDT Sept. 13 as it neared the U.S. Eastern seaboard. NASA satellites track the storm: https://go.nasa.gov/2CEmDGQ |
According to the National Hurricane Center, Florence is moving northwest with winds of 110 miles an hour. On the forecast track, the center of Florence will approach the coasts of North and South Carolina later today, then move near or over the coast of southern North Carolina and eastern South Carolina in the hurricane warning area tonight and Friday. A slow motion over eastern South Carolina is forecast Friday night through Saturday night. The region is facing potential catastrophic flooding from Florence with some rainfall totals predicted to reach 40 inches. 12.09.2018, в 16:21
A high definition camera outside the International Space Station captured a stark and sobering view of Hurricane Florence at 7:50 a.m. EDT on Sept. 12. NASA satellites track the storm: https://go.nasa.gov/2CEmDGQ
This video was taken as Florence churned across the Atlantic in a west-northwesterly direction with winds of 130 miles an hour. The National Hurricane Center forecasts additional strengthening for Florence before it reaches the coastline of North Carolina and South Carolina early Friday, Sept. 14. 12.09.2018, в 01:02
How does research on the International Space Station benefit life on Earth? We'll tell the stories of innovative science in low-Earth orbit in a new book. More: https://go.nasa.gov/2tmrdoa
The International Space Station (ISS) partnership will soon complete a Third Edition revision of the International Space Station Benefits for Humanity publication, a compilation of benefits being realized from ISS activities in the areas of human health, Earth observations and disaster response, innovative technology, global education, and economic development of space. The revision will include new assessments of economic and scientific value, updated statistics on the impacts of the benefits, as well as new benefits that have developed since the previous publication.

At 8:10 a.m. Eastern time, Sept. 10, cameras on the International Space Station captured views of Hurricane Florence. NASA satellites track the storm: https://go.nasa.gov/2CEmDGQ Florence is moving in a westerly direction across the Atlantic, headed for a likely landfall along the eastern seaboard of the U.S. late Thursday or early Friday. Now a major hurricane with winds of 115 miles an hour and increasing, the National Hurricane Center says Florence’s forecast track will take the system over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas Tuesday and Wednesday, and Florence will approach the coast of South Carolina or North Carolina on Thursday. The station was flying 255 miles over the storm at the time this video was captured.
