Exciting change is on the way! Please join us at nsf.gov for the latest news on NSF-funded research. While the NSF Science360 page and daily newsletter have now been retired, there’s much happening at nsf.gov. You’ll find current research news on the homepage and much more to explore throughout the site. Best of all, we’ve begun to build a brand-new website that will bring together news, social media, multimedia and more in a way that offers visitors a rich, rewarding, user-friendly experience.

Want to continue to receive email updates on the latest NSF research news and multimedia content? On September 23rd we’ll begin sending those updates via GovDelivery. If you’d prefer not to receive them, please unsubscribe now from Science360 News and your email address will not be moved into the new system.

Thanks so much for being part of the NSF Science360 News Service community. We hope you’ll stay with us during this transition so that we can continue to share the many ways NSF-funded research is advancing knowledge that transforms our future.

Picture of the Day

Iceberg full of penguins

This image of an iceberg filled with penguins was taken aboard the Nathaniel B. Palmer in the Drake Passage in the south Atlantic Ocean. The ship is a first-rate platform for global change studies, including biological, oceanographic, geological and geophysical components. It can operate safely year-round in Antarctic waters that often are stormy or covered with sea ice. The ship is named the Nathaniel B. Palmer to commemorate the American credited with first seeing Antarctica.
