Science Bulletins:Ocean Peaks Are Vital for Biodiversity
Biologists from the Secretariat of the Pacific Community and Açores University in Portugal have learned that undersea peaks, called seamounts, support a wide variety of migratory fish species. Though it's still unknown exactly why these species tend to use seamounts as stopovers on their travels, the discovery makes seamounts attractive open-ocean locations to designate as protected areas.

Galileo Earth Views (WMS)
The Galileo spacecraft was launched from the Space Shuttle Atlantis on October 18, 1989 on a six-year trip to Jupiter. On the way, the trajectory of the spacecraft took it past Venus once and Earth twice. Galileo took the Earth images in this animation just after the first flyby of the Earth, on December 11 and 12, 1990.

Assimilation of N2O in the Upper Atmosphere Using a Kalman Filter: N2O Mixing Ratio
This series of animations shows assimilation of N2O in the upper atmosphere using observations from the Cryogenic Limb Etalon Spectrometer (CLAES) on the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS). Winds were provided by the Goddard EOS Data Assimilation System (GEOS-DAS). Flow is at the 850K isentropic level. N2O mixing ratio is expressed in parts per billion volume (ppbv).

"One Country! One Language! One Flag!" The Invention of an American Tradition
Most people assume that the pledge of allegiance is as old as the Republic. In fact, it was invented in 1892 by Francis Bellamy, director of youth activities for the magazine Youth's Companion. Bellamy drew up the "pledge to the flag" (as it was then called) and publicized it as part of the activities surrounding the 400th anniversary of Columbus's arrival in America.
