(2 day ago) But instead of staying on the station for six months, as most NASA astronauts do, Stine Koch plans to stay on the station until February 2020. That means she will spend 328 days in orbit, or nearly a full year, even though she can't beat Scott Kelly's 340-day-in-orbit record, the history of NASA astronauts.

A paper published in 2018 pointed out that there is water ice on the surface of the moon, especially the shadow position in the Antarctic crater.
(3 day ago) At the end of March, US Vice President Burns declared that “the moon is going to be early” and the astronauts were sent to the moon in 2024. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)'s moon landing plan was led four years ahead of schedule, and it was a bit unreliable to return to the moon "overspeed."

This approach has both contributed to the benefits and benefits of the NIAC program. "Our NIAC plans to invest in revolutionary technology to foster vision that can change NASA's future missions," said Jim Reuter, deputy director of the NASA Space Technology Task Force.
(6 day ago) Tencent Technology News, according to foreign media reports, for the private rocket company SpaceX founded by Musk, April 10 is a wonderful day. The company's Falcon heavy rocket completed its first commercial launch mission, launching Saudi Arabia's huge Arabsat-6A communications satellite, and successfully landed all three first-class rockets, one of which successfully landed. On the recycling boat at sea.
(7 day ago) According to NASA, this is like a batting practice, but the risks are still high. If the impact fails, NASA's "impacter" will be out of orbit. If the impact is successful, critical data will be obtained to help NASA deploy ahead for real asteroid impact.
(7 day ago) Scott Kelly spent nearly a year in space, while Mark stayed on the planet as a contrast. The results of this study are now finally published. As part of the research, Scott Kelly lived on the International Space Station for 340 days in 2015 and 2016.
(8 day ago) The twin study, which took place between 2015 and 2016, is the first such study ever conducted by NASA. The study involved astronaut Mark Kelly on Earth and his identical twin brother Scott Kelly in space.
(8 day ago) The lander consists of two parts: a lander that can travel down to the surface of the moon and an ascending vehicle that can take astronauts off the surface of the moon. The lander is used to travel to and from the new space station NASA hopes to build around the moon (called Gateway).
(9 day ago) Although many of the selected projects seem to come from science fiction, they are likely to become reality in the next decade. Funded by NASA's Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program, these projects award up to $500,000 for the development of revolutionary technologies conducive to human space flight and space exploration missions.
(9 day ago) Previously, OCO-2 had the ability to monitor plant carbon uptake levels by measuring the weak fluorescence produced by chlorophyll during photosynthesis. The OCO-3 will further expand the chlorophyll fluorescence monitoring capabilities of the carbon Detection Satellite Network. OCO-3 will be attached outside the International Space Station and in orbit at 52 °S / N. SIF data will be collected more intensively than OCO-2 (because OCO-2 is in polar orbit), OCO-3, an instrument carried on board the ISS International Space Station.
(10 day ago) NASA launched the Parker Solar Detector last year as part of its mission to study the Sun. The spacecraft already has the closest record to the Sun, and as it orbits closer and closer to the stars, it will repeatedly refresh this record in the next few years.
(10 day ago) The clouds created by the NASA sounding rockets launched from the Norwegian Space Center look cool, but they actually provide NASA scientists with valuable data to help scientists better understand the mechanics of the Earth's atmosphere. According to NASA, the AZURE mission is designed to measure atmospheric density and temperature using instruments on the rocket and to deploy a visible gas tracer. This trimethylaluminum (TMA) and ruthenium/iridium mixture will ionize when exposed to sunlight. .
(10 day ago) Figure Zi: JAXA, as well as a number of research institutes and institutes (via Slash Gear) participating in the Falcon II project include Japan Aerospace Administration, Kobe University, Chiba University of Technology, University of Occupational and Environmental Health, Kochi University, Aichi Dongfeng University, Huijin University, Tokyo University of Science and Technology, etc.
(14 day ago) Bennu's surface is covered by fragments of various sizes, posing a challenge to the NASA team, who still need to decide where to place the detector on the asteroid to collect the sample. Now, using the built-in laser instrument of OSIRIS-REx, NASA has studied in detail the true danger level of the Bennu surface.
(15 day ago) The MADCAT (Task Adaptive Digital Composite Aviation Architecture Technology) project is carried out by scientists at NASA Ames Research Center. The goal of the project is to develop wings that can adapt to flight conditions in a more important way than traditional flaps. The team envisioned a wing with an overall shape that could be deformed and adapted to become the most effective shape in any case.
(15 day ago) The camera mounted on the Curiosity mast is equipped with a sun filter that acts as a eclipse, so you can safely "stare" at the sun. The Mars satellite is very small, the Phobos are 7 miles (11.5 kilometers) in diameter, and the Deimos are only 1.5 miles (2.3 kilometers) in diameter.
(16 day ago) This competition is divided into three stages, each stage has formulated very detailed specific tasks. At present, three teams have entered the final stage. They have designed three unique space habitats. The final competition is scheduled to be held in Illinois from May 1 to May 4. They will score the integrity, efficiency and scalability of these buildings comprehensively. Finally, they will receive a bonus of up to 800,000 US dollars.
