Satellites Could Provide Early Warning for Forest Fires

Aug 21, 2003 - New software developed at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory may give firefighters a new tool for spotting forest fires before they get a chance to really get going. The software will link various NASA Earth science satellites together into a virtual web of sensors. If one satellite spots a blaze, it can instruct the other satellites to take more detailed photographs of the area. Controllers can then report the fire to officials as well as scientists interested in how early forest fires behave. Similar software is being considered for other natural events, like floods.

New Information on the Early Universe

Aug 21, 2003 - An international team of Astronomers have used the European Southern Observatory's Very Large telescope (VLT) to look deep into space and see Galaxies located 12.6 billion light-years away - these Galaxies are being seen when the universe was only 10% of its current age. Few Galaxies this old have been found, and this new collection has helped the Astronomers conclude that they are a part of a cosmic Dark Age, when luminous Galaxies were rarer - there were many more only 500 million years later.

Where Should NASA Look on Mars?

Aug 21, 2003 - To celebrate the closest approach of Mars in 60,000 years, NASA is looking for suggestions for where it should point the cameras on the Mars Global Surveyor. The spacecraft has been orbiting Mars since 1997, and taken more than 120,000 photos of the Red planet which a resolution high enough to show a school bus on the surface. But the high resolution camera has only covered about 3% of the planet's surface. The NASA Mars Global Surveyor team will review suggestions from the public and then catch pictures when the spacecraft is above the right locations.
