Satellite imagery makes it hard to hide from the tax collectors

If you thought you could conveniently forget to put your home addition or swimming pool on next year's tax return, you may be surprised to learn the Tax Guy in the Sky will see your new addition even if it’s hidden from the street.

Ground under a West Texas oil patch is moving at an alarming rate

Decades of oil drilling in West Texas have destabilized localities in a 4,000-square-mile area, which is populated by small towns, roadways and a vast network of oil and gas pipelines, and storage tanks.

Fast-draining lakes pose a new risk for Greenland ice sheet

A growing number of lakes on the Greenland ice sheet are causing a runaway chain reaction to take place under the ice and it could possibly lead to its collapse.

NASA's OMG campaign reveals bad news for Greenland glaciers

New, accurate and comprehensive high-resolution maps of Greenland's bedrock and coastal seafloor show that the country is actually — physically — shrinking due to climate change, and it’s happening at a much quicker pace than scientists once thought

Satellite images confirm there is less sea ice globally in 2017

It is unusual for the NSIDC to release data for both poles at the same time, but 2017 has been an "exceptional" year. However, new satellite data shows that there is less sea ice globally than at any time in the entire 38-year satellite record.

Looking deeper into our past by turning the cameras inward

Space archaeology using out-of-this-world technology in the search for answers to questions about human history is a relatively new field of research. Using satellite imagery, we are able to pinpoint ancient sites on Earth in a non-invasive manner.

Satellites help with monumental find at Petra World Heritage site

Petra - At Jordan's famous Petra World heritage site, archaeologists have discovered a large new monumental platform about half-a-mile from the city center, using satellite imagery, Google Earth, drone photography, and ground work.

HRW: Satellite images reveal 'Nigerian Army abuse' in Baga

Maiduguri - Human Rights Watch (HRW) has released satellite images which reveal extensive destruction of civilian property following a military raid on April 16 and 17 in the northern Nigerian town of Baga.

Satellite Aquarius shows images of the world's saltiest seas

New research data released by NASA shows a map of ocean salinity changes that are tracked by satellite Aquarius. The project will last three years and this is the first year of data being published.

NASA releases new images of Gulf oil spill moving to Loop Current

Washington - This week, NASA released two new satellite images showing the Deepwater Horizon oil spill edging into the Loop Current. One photo offers a view of a large column of oil extending Southeast towards the open ocean.

International Space Station Expedition 23 flight engineer Soichi Noguchi photographed on May 5, 2010 the Mississippi River Delta and nearby Louisiana coast, which appear dark in the sunglint. This phenomenon is caused by sunlight reflecting off the water surface, in a mirror-like manner, directly back towards the astronaut observer aboard the International Space Station. The sunglint improves the identification of the oil spill which is creating a different water texture (and therefore a contras
