Signs of Geological Activity Found on Venus

  • Scientists have found evidence that parts of Venus's surface move around like pieces of continent on Earth.
  • And while this activity is probably not driven by plate tectonics, as on Earth, it could be a "cousin" of that process.
  • The findings fit an emerging picture of a planet very much alive, in contrast to the traditional view of Venus.
  • Europe is launching a spacecraft, EnVision, to radar-map and gather spectroscopic measurements of the planet's surface and atmosphere.
  • And Nasa is sending two craft, Veritas and DaVinci+, to Venus, towards the end of this decade.
  • A team of researchers detected signs blocks of rocky crust in Venus's lowlands region had rotated and moved laterally relative to one another.
  • The researchers used data gathered by NASA's Magellan spacecraft, launched in 1989 and active until 1994, to map the surface structures, which they have named "campi", from the Latin for "field", "campus".

NASA Sends Squid from Hawaii into Space for Research

  • Dozens of baby squid from Hawaii are in space for study.
  • The baby Hawaiian bobtail squid were raised at the University of Hawaii's Kewalo Marine Laboratory and were blasted into space on a SpaceX resupply mission to the International Space Station.
  • Researcher Jamie Foster, who completed her doctorate at the University of Hawaii, is studying how spaceflight affects the squid in hopes of bolstering human health during long space missions.

Senate Confirms Pam Melroy as NASA Deputy Administrator

  • The U.S. Senate confirmed former astronaut Pam Melroy as NASA deputy administrator, about six weeks after doing the same for space agency chief Bill Nelson.
  • Melroy's confirmation was never really in doubt. She received broad bipartisan support during her Senate confirmation hearing last month, and her resume is extremely strong.
  • Melroy served in the U.S. Air Force before joining NASA. She flew three space shuttle missions, piloting STS-92 in 2000 and STS-112 in 2002 and commanding STS-120 in 2007. She is one of only two women, along with NASA astronaut Eileen Collins, to command a shuttle mission.
  • After retiring from NASA in 2009, she took several high-profile jobs in the aerospace and defense sectors. She worked at Lockheed Martin and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), for example, and served as deputy director of the Tactical Technology Office at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
  • NASA was established in 1958, succeeding the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA).
  • Since its establishment, most US space exploration efforts have been led by NASA, including the Apollo Moon landing missions, the Skylab space station, and later the Space Shuttle.
  • The first administrator was Dr. T. Keith Glennan, appointed by Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
