LADEE Launches From NASA Wallops  A Minotaur V rocket carrying NASA's Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) lifts off from at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on Friday, Sept. 6, 2013.  LADEE is a robotic mission designed to orbit the moon where and provide unprecedented information about the environment around the moon and give scientists a better understanding of other planetary bodies in our solar system and beyond.

On Friday, Sept. NASAo launched a small satellite mission, called the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE), which will orbit the moon to gather detailed information about its atmosphere and the role of dust in the lunar sky.

The Most Studied Peninsula on Antarctica

The northernmost arm of Antarctica is a hotspot of research because its retreating glaciers are a large contributor to sea level rise.

This is neither an impact crater nor a volcano. It is a perfect circular intrusion, about 10 km in diameter with a topographic ridge up to 600 m high. The Kondyor Massif is located in Eastern Siberia, Russia, north of the city of Khabarovsk. It is a rare form of igneous intrusion called alkaline-ultrabasic massif and it is full of rare minerals

In visible light, fresh lava flows are difficult to distinguish from the black rock of Tolbachinsky Dol, a volcanic plateau on Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula. The high altitude and northern latitude of the plateau (as far north as Moscow) preserve the barren landscape left behind by past eruptions. In contrast, the fresh lava stands out clearly against the vivid green of low-elevation meadows and forest.
