A 30 Foot Cable for Laser Ranging    This fiber optic cable attaches to the back of the Laser Ranging Telescope at the end of the High Gain Antenna boom. It actually has three segments that connect to each other. The first two segments are used to transfer the lights from the back of the telescope to the bottom of the boom. The third segment is used to transfer the light from the bottom of the boom to the LOLA instrument. This cable was carefully handmade at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD.   10326   Assembly of the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO)

Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph  (STIS), the most versatile spectrograph ever to fly on Hubble, ceased operations in August 2004 due to the failure of its power supply. In order to restore STIS to operational status, astronauts will perform a never-before-attempted on-orbit replacement of an electronics board inside STIS's main electronics box. On Earth this operation is relatively simple, but in space many challenges confront the astronauts as they work to replace the failed board including working to remove 111 tiny, non-captive screws with astronaut gloves.    The Cosmic Origins Spectrograph   (COS) that will be added during Servicing Mission 4, and STIS are highly complementary and are very complimentary to each other providing scientists with a full set of spectroscopic tools for astrophysical research. The STIS instrument's accomplishments include determining the atmospheric composition of an exoplanet as well as spectra and images at ultraviolet and visible wavelengths of the Universe from our solar system out to cosmological distances.

NASA's THEMIS mission has overturned a longstanding belief about the interaction between solar particles and Earth's protective magnetic field. This new discovery could help scientists predict when the solar storms that can disrupt power grids, satellites and even GPS signals, could be especially severe.

Conceptual animation depicting how geochemical processes during the course of Mars' history may have produced the methane plumes now seen in Mars' atmosphere. Here, through a process called serpentinization, methane is generated as part of a reaction involving the conversion of liquid water (seen seeping into the planet's crust), iron oxide, and carbon dioxide energized by the planet's internal heat into serpentine minerals.   10358   Geochemical Creation of Methane
Conceptual animation depicting how biological organisms (shown as oval-shaped translucent structures) living beneath the surface of Mars may have produced methane (shown as blue spheres).   10359   Biological Creation of Methane
Conceptual animation demonstrating the process of spectroscopy. The first animation demonstrates the general concept of visible-light spectroscopy by which white light is separated into its component wavelengths (colors) using a prism. The second animation demonstrates how this idea is applied to the discovery of methane in Mars' atmosphere. Because it absorbs specific wavelengths of electromagnetic energy, methane has a 'fingerprint' that can be seen as missing lines on the resulting spectograph.   10360   Mars Methane Spectroscopy
The pulsar's radio beams (green) never intersect Earth, but its pulsed gamma rays (magenta) do.   10361   Pulsars Emit Gamma-rays from Equator
In this animation, energy produced by radioactive minerals remove hydrogen from water molecules, which are then consumed by the microbes along with carbon dioxide. The microbes then emit methane as a byproduct.   10362   Radiolytic Production of Methane by Microbial Life
Mike Mumma and his team of researchers at Goddard Space Flight Center have made the first definitive observations of methane in the atmosphere of Mars. The evidence of methane plumes only during certain seasons and the chemical processes that could lead to its possible sources both raise intriguing questions for future study.

This animation shows the different sources of aerosols, how they mix in the Earth's atmosphere, and finally disappear by creating sediment or raining out.   10386   Sources of Aerosols
This animation shows how a cloud is formed on the particle-level. Water droplets and black soot carbon aerosols mix in the air. Water droplets cling to aerosol particles, creating a larger water droplet. The droplet becomes very large and 'pops' into smaller water droplets, each with an aerosol particle inside, thus creating a cloud.   10387   Aerosols Impact Cloud Formation
This animation juxtaposes ocean clouds and city clouds. Both zoom to the particle-detail level to show the difference in aerosol particle number and back out to show that clouds over oceans are taller and darker than those over cities.   10388   Human Induced versus Naturally Occurring Aerosols
Forest fires (biomass burning) emit black soot carbon aerosol clouds. Sun rays are absorbed by these dark clouds. Some sun rays are reflected and some still travel through the cloud to the ground.   10389   Aerosols Absorb; Aerosols Reflect
