NASA has announced that it will award the Distinguished Public Service Medal, its highest honor, to astronomer Yervant Terzian, the Tisch Distinguished Professor Emeritus. Professor…
Nasa has successfully demonstrated Kilopower a nuclear reactor that they will send to space. It is a new nuclear reactor power system that could enable long-duration future missions to the Moon, Mars and destinations beyond. Scientists said that it is the first step towards sending the Kilopower technology up into space, so that fission can be used to power space exploration missions.View More NASA Successfully Demonstrated Kilopower Technology Sending to Space
The NASA Mars InSight mission, which is set to launch on May 5, will try to gather as much data as possible about Earth’s neighbor in the solar system. InSight lander, which stands for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, will study mars quakes to know about the Martian crust, mantle and core.View More Why is it so important Landing InSight Mission to Mars?
We live in a beautiful place, where everything is colorful and bright. But have you ever thought about to move on another planet? Or have you thought about how long people would survive on each planet. We think, each of us has a dream to appear neighboring planet. So, we prepare for you a list, where is indicated how long people would survive on each planet without a spacesuit.View More How Long People Would Survive on Each Planet Without a Spacesuit!
NASA plans to send the first Robotic InSight lander that will explore the Red’s planet’s subsurface. InSight is a robotic Mars lander designed to explore the interior and subsurface of Mars. InSight lander is going to launch from the California coast to the surface of Mars on May 5, 2018. In addition, it is the first time launching to another planet from the West Coast. InSight lander, which stands for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, will study marsquakes to know about the Martian crust, mantle and core.View More NASA InSight Lander Will Study Marsquakes on the Surface of Mars
The NASA Exploration Campaign is a national and agency effort concentrates on three essential fields such as low Earth orbit; lunar orbit and surface; and Mars and other deep space objectives. President Donald J. Trump gave NASA a new direction in December 17, telling the agency to work with international and commercial partners to refocus exploration efforts on the moon, with an eye to eventually going on to Mars and even beyond NASA stated.View More What are the Planned Objectives of NASA Exploration Campaign?
Marsbee is a robotic flapping wing flyers. Its size is as the same as bumblebee size with cicada sized wings. The Marsbee is combined with sensors and wireless communication devices. The mobile base can act as a recharging station and main communication center. Why NASA wants to send Marsbee to the Red Planet. NASA explains:
“The objective of the proposed work is to increase the set of possible exploration and science missions on Mars by investigating the feasibility of flapping wing aerospace architectures in a Martian environment. The proposed architecture consists of a Mars rover that serves as a mobile base and a swarm of Marsbees.”View More Why NASA Wants to Send Marsbee Robotic Bees to Mars?
The Psyche mission is a journey to an exclusive metal asteroid orbiting the Sun between Mars and Jupiter. NASA explains what makes the asteroid Psyche exclusive and unique is that it appears to be the exposed nickel-iron core of an early planet, one of the building blocks of our solar system. The Psyche mission is going to leave Earth in 2022. Although the original plan was supposed to launch in 2023, NASA has changed the timeline and is expected to start its mission in 2022. Observations from Earth hint that the 124-mile-wide (200 kilometers) world is 95 percent metal, just like the core of a rocky planet.View More The Aims of Psyche Mission to a Metal World: NASA Explains
Three billionaires or better to say three remarkable men have a mission to save Earth first. Elon Musk wants to fly to Mars. Jeff Bezos has a dream putting a colony on the moon. And Richard Branson wants to offer luxury space tourism under the Virgin banner. Christian Davenport, author of “The Space Barons”, in his book writes about these three billionaires, discusses their different ideas for exploring the cosmos, and explains why women are still so underrepresented in space. Forbes.com says “it’s no surprise that space enthusiasts would be ecstatic about any seemingly viable alternative to space politics as usual.View More Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson Three Billionaires in One Place
University of New Hampshire researchers have recently claimed that there is as a minimum 30 percent more dangerous Space radiation in our solar system than we have imagined before, which may cause a danger for both humans and satellites who venture there. According to the Researchers astronauts may obtain different kinds of space radiation sickness or maybe more serious long-term health effects, including cancer and damage to the heart, brain, and central nervous system indicated Nathan Schwadron, a space plasma physics professor at UNH and lead author of the study.View More Space Radiation May Be More Dangerous for Astronaut Than We Imagine
