At the current emissions level, there is a 50% chance that global warming will exceed 1.5 degrees Celsius consistently in about seven years, new research suggests.
The NISAR satellite, a collaboration between NASA and India's space agency ISRO, will help scientists monitor how climate change is affecting Earth's varied landscapes.
New research suggests we have just six years left to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, and two decades to keep temperatures below the 2 C threshold in the Paris Agreement.
The discovery of seemingly home-grown carbon dioxide suggests Europa's ice-covered ocean could be habitable.
NASA's James Webb Space Telescope has detected potential traces of dimethyl sulfide, a chemical only known to be created by phytoplankton on Earth, in the atmosphere of an exoplanet believed to have its own liquid ocean.
The animations highlight emissions from different human and natural sources, with the main contribution coming from the burning of fossil fuels.
The atmospheric temperature spike, which was caused by geomagnetic storms triggered by the sun, suggests the "solar maximum" is fast approaching.
Researchers have mapped out at least 85,000 volcanoes on Venus' surface, and recent findings suggest that some of them are likely active.
Staving off the worst impacts of climate change means preventing global temperatures from rising more than 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels. But CO2 emissions are so high that we are slated to cross that line within a decade.
