Boeing's first manned flight of its CST-100 Starliner is going to last a little longer and lift off months later than originally planned. After an in-depth technical assessment, NASA and Boeing have reached an agreement that the duration of the Crew Flight Test will be extended to allow for more microgravity research, maintenance, and other tasks while the capsule is docked with the Intern
From the hottest deserts to the freezing polar regions, microorganisms keep turning up in Earth's most extreme environments. And if that's the case, why wouldn't it hold that life can do the same on other planets? To test whether certain hardy microbes can survive the harsh conditions of space or Mars, colonies were placed on the outside of the International Space Station (ISS) for almost
