ESA satellite Sentinel-1A may lead the search team to the missing EgyptAir Flight MS804 plane. The satellite found a mile-long oil spill in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea near where the plane was last spotted.
With the use of the NASA/USGS satellites, scientists can predict where ponds usually existed and if it turns out dry during the migrating season, conservationist will deploy farmers to flood the wetlands or unused rice fields to provide resting area and food from migratory birds.
Mount Sourabaya in the isolated region of South Atlantic Ocean has been silent for 60 years. But it erupted twice in the last few weeks, and if not for NASA satellites, the eruption would have gone unnoticed.
Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency puts an end to the retrieval operations of their multi-million X-ray satellite lost in space, shifting their attention to finding out what caused the anomaly.
A combination of satellite data and chemical tests reveal a more accurate picture of where Barn Swallows migrate in the winter.
A team of researchers recently mapped tree populations, finding that about 3.04 trillion trees live on our planet.
It looks like they may need to start building an aviary in space. A Kounotori, which translates from Japanese to "white stork," is currently escorting a flock of fourteen Doves to the International Space Station.
Earlier this week, the NOAA's Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) satellite reached its orbital position, not circling the Earth or Mars but instead orbiting the Sun itself, at a stunning 1 million miles from Earth.
It's been more than a week since the developing world of Nepal was struck by a devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake. Aid and recovery efforts are now in full swing, and NASA, of all groups, seems to be one of the first to provide information that's uniquely valuable to responders.
The United States Air Force and space industry media have revealed that a satellite which had been orbiting the Earth for the greater part of two decades exploded in early February, strewing debris that is worrying some experts. Now, the European Space Agency (ESA) has released a hasty assessment of this danger.
There's a new cowboy in town, and he's getting ready to wrangle in some game-changing data about our planet's water. NASA's new SMAP satellite has successfully deployed its massive antenna - a structure that engineers at the agency's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) say is not unlike a giant lasso.
Although the media has egregiously been playing up the "snowmageddon" since winter storm Juno made her way across the East Coast, the US has still been experiencing some record cold, with local complaining that they haven't felt so chilled in years. Now NASA and the NOAA are here to tell us that it wasn't all in our heads, releasing satellite imagery that show an utterly frozen over eastern US.
The European Space Agency (ESA) is working hard to help scientists better understand and manage the Earth's plant life. On Tuesday, the agency moved to introduce the world to FLEX, a novel approach that could help experts assess the health of vegetation across the globe by measuring their photosynthetic activity from space.
If you haven't already, it's time to stoke the fireplace, break out the blankets, and prepare for a heck of a heating bill. That's because the face of winter has descended upon North America. Well, that's at least according to new satellite imagery from the NOAA and NASA.
Protected areas and the conservation of ecology has been the hot topic at this year's World Parks Congress in Sydney, Australia. Now NASA and the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) has announced the publication of Sanctuary, a short book of stunning pictures that can help us understand how satellites and aerial surveillance are keeping our most valuable ecosystems safe.
