NASA places a high priority on finding Near- Earth Objects (NEOs) and protecting our home planet from them. In fact, the agency is working with our partners in the U.S. and around the world to detect, track and characterize NEOs, especially those that might pose a threat to human populations. NASA has been studying NEOs since the 1970s.  They are asteroids and comets that have been nudged by the gravitational attraction of nearby planets into orbits that allow them to enter the Earth...

It is a race against time for ESA’s Gravi-2 experiment following launch last Friday on the Dragon space ferry. Stowed in Dragon’s cargo are lentil seeds that will be nurtured into life on the International Space Station. Gravi-2 continues the research of its predecessor into how sensitive plants are to gravity. To find out, 768 lentil seeds will be subjected to different levels of simulated gravity. Spinning them in centrifuges at different speeds on the Space Station will...
