Many doctors suggest that one great practice in staying healthy is to get an annual physical -- a thorough evaluation of one's health and well-being. For the Science Directorate, a physical comes every four years in the form of a peer review.
At the beginning of 2007, Leila Vann, director of the Science Directorate (SD) at NASA Langley, challenged the SD team to uphold the Center's mission statement in a way that goes beyond work requirements – by staying healthy.
NASA Langley celebrates satellite's first full year in orbit.
Carbon, the building block of life, cycles through the land, ocean, atmosphere, and the Earth’s interior, in what is simply called the carbon cycle.
Watch out ABC - here comes Bob Williams and Meka Watkinson from NASA Langley!
The EPA is working with NASA to improve what we know about the air we breathe.
A Mars exploration program based on a series of rapid-response, low-cost science-driven missions has a new program scientist.
NASA Administrator Michael Griffin announced that Dr. S. Alan Stern will be the agency's associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate, effective April 2.
It's often hard to describe to a non-scientist why scientific research is important to their life. When explaining that in the Science Directorate at NASA Langley Research Center, we launch satellites that take measurements of how our atmosphere is changing and look at the balance of energy between the Earth, our atmosphere and outer space, the most frequent response is, "How does this work affect me?"
In reaction to recent discussions on climate change, researchers in NASA Langley's Science Directorate (SD), the Systems Engineering Directorate (SED), and throughout the Center are asking how fast is the change happening, and what can we do to better understand this process.
