Welcome to the NASA Audio Collection. This collection is administered and maintained by the Houston Audio Control Room, at the NASA Johnson Space Center. The purpose of this collection is to make available the historic audio record of the history of Human Spaceflight at NASA, in an easily accessible and open manner. The audio contained in this collection has been digitized from original reel-to-reel tapes of varying format. Many tapes are the originals, from over 50 years ago. The original file...

Saturday Morning Science, the science of opportunity series of applied experiments and demonstrations, performed aboard the International Space Station (ISS) by Expedition 6 astronaut Dr. Don Pettit, revealed some remarkable findings. In this video clip, Pettit demonstrates laminar flow in a rotating film of water. The demonstration is done by placing tracer particles in a water film held in place by a round wire loop, then stirring the system rotationally. The resulting flow clearly...

Animation and Composite Image of Crab Nebula. MPEG This sequence begins with an artist's animation of the explosion that produced the Crab Nebula, now an expanding debris field of extremely high-energy particles created from the death of a massive star. The view then fades into an image of the Crab composed of data from Chandra (light blue), Hubble (green and dark blue), and Spitzer (red). [Runtime: 0:18]

This dominant cosmological theory suggests the Universe began nearly 13.7 billion years ago, expanding rapidly from a very dense and incredibly hot state. Eventually, stars ignited and galaxies slowly formed. The Big Bang theory has been imporved and advanced especially through NASA's Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) and WMAP missions. This animation conceptualizes these explosive beginnings of the Universe. Note: This animation begins with a pinpoint of light as the Big Bang, and continues to...

This artist's concept shows what the very early universe might have looked like, just after its first stars began bursting onto the scene. Scientists theorize that the universe arose around 13.7 billion years ago in an explosion known as the Big Bang. Almost instantaneously afterward, matter began clumping together due to quantum fluctuations. Gravity kicked in next, causing those clumps to grow into larger clouds of invisible hydrogen gas (colored blue here). Eventually, around 200 to 400...

*Description*: A Hubble Space Telescope view of a small portion of the Orion Nebula reveals five young stars. Four of the stars are surrounded by gas and dust trapped as the stars formed, but were left in orbit about the star. These are possibly protoplanetary disks, or "proplyds," that might evolve on to agglomerate planets. The proplyds which are closest to the hottest stars of the parent star cluster are seen as bright objects, while the object farthest from the hottest stars is...

When a meteorite is found, the ANSMET (Antarctic Search for Meteorites) team records its location, size, color, amount of fusion crust, probable type, and anything else that might be important. Some of their tools are similar to those used by the Apollo astronauts to collect samples, and some are the latest high-tech (like Global Positioning Satellite navigation). The team takes great care not to contaminate the meteorites. Meteorites are handled only with stainless steel instruments, and are...

A new Hubble Space Telescope image of a celestial object called the Ant Nebula may shed new light on the future demise of our Sun. The image is available at http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/pictures/wfpc . The nebula, imaged on July 20, 1997, and June 30, 1998, by Hubble's Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2, was observed by Drs. Raghvendra Sahai and John Trauger of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.; Bruce Balick of the University of Washington in Seattle; and Vincent Icke of Leiden...

Artist's concept of a catastrophic asteroid impact with the early Earth. An impact with a 500-km-diameter asteroid would effectively sterilize the planet. The Earth may have experienced such gigantic impacts in its youth, but fortunately today there are no projectiles this large to threaten our planet. *Image Credit*: Don Davis, NASA

In July 1994, 21 chunks of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9, which had broken apart a year earlier, slammed into Jupiter. The Hubble telescope recorded this spectacular event. These images, beginning at lower right, chronicle the results of one such collision. Hubble began snapping pictures of the impact area just five minutes after the collision. Nothing can be seen. Less than two hours later, a plume of dark debris is visible [bull's-eye pattern, image second from bottom]. Two impact sites are visible...

Recent Cassini images of Saturn's moon Enceladus backlit by the sun show the fountain-like sources of the fine spray of material that towers over the south polar region. The image was taken looking more or less broadside at the "tiger stripe" fractures observed in earlier Enceladus images. It shows discrete plumes of a variety of apparent sizes above the limb of the moon. The greatly enhanced and colorized image shows the enormous extent of the fainter, larger-scale component of the...

All the planetary moons in our solar system are shown here at their correct relative size and true color. Their diversity of size and appearance is testament to the unique and fascinating geologic history that each of these bodies has undergone. Two of the moons are larger than the planet Mercury, and eight of them are larger than Pluto. Earth's Moon is the fifth largest of the set, with a diameter of 3476 kilometers (2160 miles). Most of the moons are thought to have formed from a disk of...
