Using satellite data, NASA scientists have created the first-ever 3D model showing just how much dust makes its way from the Saharan Desert to the Amazon forest. Incredibly, this dust is seeding the rain forest with an essential nutrient, an indication of just how interconnected these disparate regions really are.
Last century, a massive binary system went supernova, ejecting at least 10 times the mass of our Sun into space. NASA scientists have now created the first hi-res model of the expanding cloud produced by this iconic outburst.
