Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope
The Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (formerly the Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope, or GLAST) will answer questions about supermassive black hole systems, pulsars and the origin of cosmic rays.
Fire and Smoke
NASA satellites, aircraft, and research know-how have created a wealth of cutting-edge tools to help firefighters battle wildfires.
Mapping the history of star formation in the universe.
› Galaxy Evolution Explorer
GOES-N is the latest in a series of satellites that provide a constant vigil for the atmospheric "triggers" for severe weather conditions such as tornadoes and hurricanes.
The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES)-O represents the newest generation of environmental satellites.
The Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES)-P represents the newest generation of environmental satellites.
GOES-R, a collaborative program between NASA and NOAA, will result in more timely and accurate weather forecasts. The first launch of n the series is scheduled for 2015.
Geotail Mission ?
A mission to study the tail of Earth's magnetosphere.
Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM)
This international satellite mission will set a new standard for precipitation measurements from space, providing observations of rain and snow worldwide every three hours. The GPM mission data will advance our understanding of the water and energy cycles and extend the use of precipitation data to directly benefit society.
Gravity Probe B
This mission is the relativity gyroscope experiment developed by NASA and Stanford University to test two unverified predictions of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity.
Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment ?
The twin satellites are making detailed measurements of Earth's gravity field to learn more about gravity and Earth's natural systems.
GRAIL, the Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory
The Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory mission will create the most accurate gravitational map of the moon to date.
