Neptune-mass exoplanets like the one shown in this artist's rendering may be the most common in the icy regions of planetary systems. Beyond a certain distance from a young star, water and other substances remain frozen, leading to an abundant population of icy objects that can collide and form the cores of new planets. In the foreground, an icy body left over from this period drifts past the planet.

Hubble VEST - 4k B-Roll and high-res pictures   Still images credit: NASA/GSFC/Pat Izzo  The Vehicle Electrical Systems Test, or VEST, is a high fidelity mock-up of the Hubble Space Telescope. The VEST is used in three primary ways. First, it is employed to troubleshoot problems seen on the spacecraft by simulating the conditions under which the anomaly was observed and to test possible solutions. Second, it is used to verify updates to the software, commands, and engineering parameters before they are transmitted from the control center to the spacecraft. This process includes a thorough test of the ground procedures used for uplinking and installing these items. Finally, the VEST is used to verify operational procedures before they are executed by the flight operations team.    Prior to each of the five servicing missions to Hubble, the VEST structure was a critical element for ensuring the fit of new spaceflight hardware in the spacecraft.  Many of the items taken aloft by the astronauts to Hubble were first installed into the VEST structure to verify mechanical, electrical, and software compatibility with the observatory.   12428   Hubble Facilities

LEAD: [Today, 12/15/2016] NASA launched eight small satellites to help hurricane forecasters give advanced warnings of hurricane strength.  1. The group of small satellites, with 5-foot solar panels, will fly 300 miles above the Earth in a string 12 minutes apart.  2. Because the system detects the relatively long wavelength of reflected signals from existing GPS satellites, it can measure surface winds underneath the torrential hurricane rains.  TAG: Hurricane scientists expect the critical wind data will help them better forecast the intensification of hurricanes.   12447   NASA On Air: NASA Launches CYGNSS: Eight Eyes-in-the-Sky for Better Hurricane Forecasts (12/15/2016)
Flying low over the Earth’s southernmost continent, Operation IceBridge is wrapping up its eighth consecutive field season of mapping the ice sheet and glaciers of Antarctica, as well as the surrounding sea ice. With more than 300 hours logged in the air over 24 science flights, the mission is considering 2016 one of the most successful seasons yet.   12449   IceBridge images of crack in Larsen C Ice Shelf
Seawater is an electrical conductor, and therefore interacts with the magnetic field.  As the tides cycle around the ocean basins, the ocean water essentially tries to pull the geomagnetic field lines along.  Because the salty water is a good, but not great, conductor, the interaction is relatively weak.  Scientists at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center are developing improved methods to isolate the signal from ocean tides and use that information to determine the heat content of the ocean.   Music:   12450   Ocean Tides and Magnetic Fields
On three occasions, NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has detected gamma rays from solar storms on the far side of the sun, emission the Earth-orbiting satellite shouldn't be able to detect. Particles accelerated by these eruptions somehow reach around to produce a gamma-ray glow on the side of the sun facing Earth and Fermi. Watch to learn more.

This illustration shows large magnetic structures extending high above the sun from the active region hosting the Sept. 1, 2014, solar blast. Left: Scientists think particles accelerated at the leading edge of the event's coronal mass ejection followed magnetic lines high above the sun. Right: Some of the particles followed similar magnetic structures rooted in the Earth-facing side of the sun. They rained down on the sun and interacted with the solar surface, producing gamma rays (magenta).

Storm clouds produce some of the highest-energy light naturally made on Earth: terrestrial gamma-ray flashes (TGFs). Using data from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope and ground-based lightning detection networks, scientists tracking these fleeting outbursts are beginning to learn more about how conditions in hurricanes, typhoons and other tropical weather systems set the stage for TGFs.

In a proof-of-concept study, NASA scientists are exploring using the European Space Agency's LISA Pathfinder spacecraft as a micrometeoroid detector. When tiny particles shed by asteroids and comets impact LISA Pathfinder, its thrusters work to quickly counteract any change in the spacecraft's motion. Researchers are monitoring these signals to learn more about the impacting particles.

NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has discovered the five most distant gamma-ray blazars yet known. The light detected by Fermi left these galaxies by the time the universe was two billion years old. Two of these galaxies harbor billion-solar-mass black holes that challenge current ideas about how quickly such monsters could grow.  Watch this video on the  NASA Goddard YouTube channel .

Time-lapse of the NICER payload returning to its stowed configuration after electromagnetic testing on Feb. 3, 2016, at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.  The time-lapse video opens with NICER in its fully deployed configuration. In this configuration, the FRAM plate is on the left, the X-ray Timing Instrument (XTI) “box” on the right and the Deploy and Pointing System (DAPS) boom connects the two horizontally across the middle of the frame.   While the DAPS is responsible for swinging the XTI swiftly from target to target across the sky, it can only do so in the weightless environment on orbit, not in Earth’s gravity on the ground. Stowing and deploying tests must therefore be conducted with the payload lying on its side and the weight of the moving parts supported by a structure on wheels.   12455   NICER Electromagnetic Testing Time-lapse Videos
As Earth warms, much of the extra heat is stored in the planet’s ocean – but monitoring the magnitude of that heat content is a difficult task.   A surprising feature of the tides could help, however. Scientists at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, are developing a new way to use satellite observations of magnetic fields to measure heat stored in the ocean.

This animation illustrates how debris from a tidally disrupted star collides with itself, creating shock waves that emit ultraviolet and optical light far from the black hole. According to Swift observations of ASASSN-14li, these clumps took about a month to fall back to the black hole, where they produced changes in the X-ray emission that correlated with the earlier UV and optical changes.
