Aquarius is a focused satellite mission to measure global Sea Surface Salinity (SSS).
To explore the beginning of time, a "Big Bang Observer" will build upon LISA to directly measure gravitons from the early Universe still present today.
The goal of the Black Hole Imager mission will be to calculate the aspects of matter that fall into a black hole.
CINDI seeks to discover how the neutral gas motions and the charged particle motions are related
The Constellation-X Observatory is a combination of several X-ray satellites orbiting in close proximity to each other and working in unison to generate the observing power of one giant telescope.
The Beyond Einstein program has three linked elements which advance science and technology towards two visions: to detect directly gravitational wave signals from the earliest possible moments of the Big Bang, and to image the event horizon of a black hole.
With GLAST, astronomers will at long last have a superior tool to study how black holes, notorious for pulling matter in, can accelerate jets of gas outward at fantastic speeds.
The GLORY satellite is a earth science mission, which uses the refurbished bus of the cancelled VCL satellite.
GOES-N Series includes GOES N, O, & P- they provide a constant vigil for the atmospheric "triggers" for severe weather conditions such as tornadoes, flash floods, hail storms, and hurricanes.
The GPM mission will measure Global Precipitation and provide improvements in water resource management.
The James Webb Space Telescope is a large, infrared-optimized space telescope that is designed to study the earliest galaxies and some of the first stars formed after the Big Bang. (proposed launch date of August 2013)
The Landsat Data Continuity Mission (LDCM) will ensure the continued collection of Landsat data.
LISA (Laser Interferometer Space Antenna) consists of three spacecrafts that will carry delicate instruments to track each other and, in concert, measure passing gravitational waves.
The LRO mission emphasizes the overall objective of obtaining data that will facilitate returning men safely to the Moon where testing and preparations for an eventual manned mission to Mars will be undertaken.
The NPOESS Preparatory Project Mission is designed to function as a bridge between the NASA EOS program and NPOESS for the development of Visible/Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite (VIIRS).
OCO provides space-based observations of atmospheric carbon dioxide.
The first Space Weather Research Network mission in the Living With a Star (LWS) Program of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
TDRS-future will provide replenishment satellites to continue communications services to support NASA missions.
The Two Wide-angle Imaging Neutral-atom Spectrometers (TWINS) mission provides a new capability for stereoscopically imaging the magnetosphere.
