CubeSats are tiny spacecraft with huge potential, but their small stature doesn't lend itself to typical propulsion methods. This has led scientists to get creative in working out ways of shifting them through space, including harnessing photons from the Sun and using regular ol' H20 as a propellant. NASA's OCSD mission has now leaned on the latter to pull off a first-of-a-kind maneuver be
NASA's Mars 2020 Mars rover passed its first set of eye exams as engineers work on the unmanned explorer's array of cameras. The first complement of what will be a total of 23 cameras was installed on the front of the rover at the Spacecraft Assembly Facility's High Bay 1 at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, in July and then given the robotic equivalent of an eye
NASA's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) was built to search for new planets, but astronomers at Ohio State discovered that it could also observe supernovas created by exploding white dwarf stars. This development means we might soon have a better idea about why they explode, and what they leave behind in the process. .. Continue Reading White dwarf supernova observation is a fi
300 luminous intel shooting start drones will perform at the kennedy space center in celebration of 50 years since apollo 11 launched to the moon. The post studio drift to bring ‘franchise freedom’ drone art performance to NASA’s rocket garden appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.

Having recently received its wheels, NASA's Mars 2020 rover now has its arm. On June 21, engineers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, began attaching the intricate robotic arm and hand that the unmanned explorer will use to search for signs of past and present life on the Red Planet...

NASA's Mars 2020 rover is getting ready to roll, as engineers have installed its wheels at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California. On June 13th, the unmanned nuclear explorer received its port and starboard legs and wheels, that will allow it to roam the surface of the Red Planet as it seeks out signs of present or past life...

Photographers use tools called flags to block and control light. NASA has detailed a new technology called a starshade that’s essentially a gigantic flag in space for doing photo shoots with space telescopes.“Although starshades have never flown in space, they hold the potential to enable groundbreaking observations of planets beyond our solar system, including pictures of planets as
A newly-installed clean room webcam at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, is giving members of the public a front row seat as technicians and engineers assemble the Mars 2020 rover. The robotic explorer will be accompanied by a helicopter equipped with a high-resolution camera when it launches to the Red Planet atop an Atlas V rocket next year... Continue Reading 24-
Engineers at NASA's Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans have now joined together four fifths of the Space Launch System's (SLS) core stage. The upcoming super heavy rocket is slated to make its maiden flight in 2020, and will provide the lifting capabilities for America's long-awaited return to the Moon as part of the newly-named Artemis program...
