Episodes

What's Up - January 2016  



What's Up for January? A meteor shower, a binocular comet, and the winter circle of stars!



Curiosity Rover Report (Dec. 15, 2015): First Visit to Martian Dunes  



Curiosity performs the first investigation of active sand dunes on another planet. Studying the Bagnold Dunes on Mars will help scientists understand the physics of Martian dunes and how they move.



Ceres Rotation and Occator Crater  



Dwarf planet Ceres is shown in these false-color renderings, which highlight differences in surface materials.



Crazy Engineering: CubeSats  



Honey, I shrunk the satellites! Mini-satellites are following in the footsteps of cell phones and computers. CubeSats are small but highly capable of performing a variety of space missions.



What's Up - December 2015  



View Mars this month, and get a preview of great Mars views in 2016, the best since 2005!



15 Years of JPL achievements under Director Charles Elachi  



As we honor the retirement of Director Charles Elachi, we look back at the JPL achievements of the past 15 years.



A Breathing Planet, Off Balance  



Earth's land and ocean currently absorb about half of all carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels, but it's uncertain whether the planet can keep this up in the future.



What's Up - November 2015  



See all the phases of the moon this month -- by day and by night!

What's Up - October 2015  



To celebrate the 100th episode of What's Up, here's our top ten favorite celestial targets you can view this month.



Buoyant Rover for Under Ice Exploration  



Researchers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory are developing the Buoyant Rover for Under-Ice Exploration, a technology that could one day explore oceans under the ice layers of planetary bodies.



Circling Occator Crater on Ceres (Silent)  



Black and white and color animations made with new data from NASA's Dawn spacecraft highlight the topography of Occator crater on Ceres.



How to Explore the Surface of a Comet or Asteroid  



A robot concept called Hedgehog would explore the microgravity environment of comets and asteroids by hopping and rolling around on them.



What's Up - September 2015  



A total eclipse of the Harvest moon, plus planets and the late summer milky way.
