Private space company Blue Origin had a doubly successful outing with its New Shepard rocket today, reusing the same booster for a record seventh time and doing so with a particularly important payload onboard. The return trip to space was used to test out a suite of lunar landing sensors for NASA for the first time, which will be key to the agency’s ambitions to return to the Moon.Continue Readi
The Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) has conceived some of the most interesting architecture projects we've seen on land, and even water, but its latest design is out of this world – literally. It involves the development of 3D-printed Moon habitats that could be used to support the human exploration of Earth's satellite.Continue ReadingCategory: 3D Printing, TechnologyTags: Moon, BIG, Building and Cons
The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Toyota Motor Corporation have released the official nickname for their manned pressurized, long-range lunar rover that is powered by fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) technology. It's been dubbed the Lunar Cruiser.Continue ReadingCategory: Space, ScienceTags: JAXA, Toyota, Moon, Lunar
A full-sized mock-up of the lander that may one day put the next US astronauts on the Moon was unveiled today in the Space Vehicle Mockup Facility at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. Built by the Human Landing System (HLS) National Team consisting of Blue Origin, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Draper, the HLS engineering mock-up will be used to help astronauts and NASA engineers to pro
the lunar toilet challenge is inviting ideas from the global community, knowing that the approach will be different from traditional aerospace engineering. The post help NASA design the future lunar toilet and win $35,000 appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
NASA's Artemis mission will (hopefully) take astronauts to the Moon in 2024 … and when those people get there, they'll need to go to the bathroom. With that in mind, the space agency is now looking to the public for ideas for "moon toilets."Continue ReadingCategory: Space, ScienceTags: NASA, Crowdsource, Prize, Competition, Moon, Lunar, Toilet, Astronauts
could elon musk, SpaceX and NASA collaborate again in the future, specifically with a lunar edition of the tesla cybertruck? The post charlie automotive imagines tesla cybertruck as six-wheel lunar rover concept appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
With NASA determined to return humans to the Moon in 2024 through its Artemis program, many are turning their attention to the habitats that will house this next generation of explorers. Among them is Danish design duo Sebastian Aristotelis and Karl-Johan Sørensen, who have been busy developing a self-expanding lunar module they plan on putting to the test in the harsh environment of Northern Gre
Through its Artemis mission, NASA will endeavor to return humans, including the first woman, to the Moon in the year 2024, and it has just narrowed down the field of firms that will help carry the astronauts safely down to the lunar surface. Blue Origin, Dynetics and SpaceX have been selected to develop the human landing systems for the program, and will now begin refining their lander concepts w
NASA is planning to launch a tiny satellite aboard one of the most powerful rockets ever constructed, to hunt for ice hiding deep inside inky black impact craters on the Moon’s surface. The bottoms of these craters – which are located near the lunar poles – have never felt the warming touch of sunlight, and so are the perfect place to search for water ice.Continue ReadingCategory: Space, ScienceT is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
