NASA and its partners are making an effort to save both time and lives with new technology.
NASA's cyberfocus shifts to real time. We get details from deputy CIO Jerry Davis.
One NASA scientist is literally helping people see.
GovExec's Tom Shoop brings us analysis of why NASA's deputy CIO has told his employees that FISMA compliance isn't the be-all, end-all of IT security.
Learn why the space agency in particular is helping out.
NASA sidesteps flaws in FISMA, Microsoft to give feds early warning on security
Students from across the country worked to develop a project that markets careers at NASA to teens. NASA's Alotta Taylor, responsible for the space operations education program, tells us about the winning effort.
NASA-sponsored studies have found that omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil may play a role in mitigating bone loss that occurs during spaceflight, and in osteoporosis. Researchers say, the solution could have significant implications for space travelers and those susceptible to bone loss on Earth.
Ongoing research has looked for ways to stop bone density loss in astronauts for decades. It's one of the main effects of exposure to the weightlessness of space.
Researchers found that astronauts who ate more fish lost less bone mineral after four-to-six-month-long spaceflights. In a series of cell-based studies, scientists documented that adding a specific omega-3 fatty acid to cells would inhibit the activation of factors that lead to bone breakdown.
The studies were conducted by a team of scientists across multiple disciplines at Johnson Space Center in Houston.
Program will discuss Key Initiatives & Progress Made in Cloud Computing, NASA Ames Nebula and DISA RACE Case Studies, GSA Cloud Computing Storefront Update, Barriers or Contraints to still overcome in getting to a Secure Cloud Environment, and Future Vision.
