This is one data set that a federal agency is keen to make public.
NASA's Nicholas Skytland explains how NASA had to build its own big data capabilities and how it's dealing with the enormous data sets from space missions.
Nicholas Skytland, program manager for NASA's Open Innovation Program, argues that workers will need to be big data literate in the future.
BUENOS AIRES--A group of scientists in Colombia and Europe are using NASA satellite data to track deforestation in Latin America in real time. Can a deforestation video save the trees?
NASA pursues more powerful ways to deliver data across global networks of scientists and engineers -- and even add a Watson-like supercomputer to the International Space Station.
Lunar Search and Rescue - the most realistic lunar flight simulator you've ever played. Real spacecraft dynamics don't give you five...
Global Earth scientists remain a challenge - but with the opening of a new data access facility, NASA hopes to launch the next chapter of discovery.
NASA is flying two unmanned drones directly into hurricanes this season to collect data on storm intensity.

Just imagine the conversation at NASA. Commander: 'We need this data from the International Space Station!' Engineer: 'Sir, there's an app for that.'
Alan Shepard became the first U.S. astronaut 50 years ago today. The mission set off a 50-year string leading to companies like Space-X and Virgin Galactic that are aiming to commercialize space. Here's a look at the computers behind NASA in 1961 and what counted as "high-speed" data transmission.
The space agency's auditors have found computers up for sale that still contained restricted data and had failed verification testing
And the sellers are small, secretive companies.
How does NASA create such beautiful images and animations of outer space from mere data?
How high are the world's forests? And how much carbon do they store? The answer would help us figure out climate change.
The space agency will call on all of us to help analyze data collected by NASA robots.
At a session in the Cloud Leadership Forum in Silicon Valley, the CIO of NASA Jet Propulsion laboratory talks about the benefits and concerns of using a private cloud for such critical data.
A new map of Mars based on NASA data shows that Mars once had a humid, rainy climate, according to newly published research.
An audit of the space agency's computer systems found weaknesses in several critical areas, especially in the way NASA implemented access controls like user accounts, passwords and the encryption of sensitive data.
Cisco has struck up a partnership with NASA to create what it is called the "Planetary Skin," a monitoring platform and multi-agency initiative that will capture environmental and climate data from sensors planted across the globe (and in satellites above the earth).
At the JavaOne conference in San Francisco, James Gosling, Sun Microsystems vice president and fellow, talks to Arizona State University geological sciences professor Phil Christensen about the school's geospatial software, JMARS. The open-source project is available to the public and used by NASA to find and gather scientific data for analysis.
The CORE Security Team released an advisory to the Full-Disclosure mailing list today that documented a stack overflow in NASA's Common Data Format libs.Looking at this bug, the tech details aren't overwhelming, I think I'm mostly excited about it due to the high profile of hacking NASA libs.
