• SpaceX met with NASA Artemis team at the starrocket base. The new rocket is better than Saturn V

    NASA awarded SpaceX a contract to develop The Starship lunar manned landing system (HLS) will send astronauts to the moon. As part of the Artemis program, the program will launch the first female and next male astronauts to the moon. It will be half a century since man returned to our nearest celestial body – the moon. SpaceX is developing a two-stage starship, including a powerful super heavy rocket booster, which will push the spacecraft into orbit. The company is preparing to conduct its first orbital flight test this year,…

  • To explore the lava planets, NASA announced the two super earths surveyed by the Weber telescope in the first year

    due to the very close proximity to the parent star, the planet with extremely high surface temperature and lava ocean is not uncommon in the galaxy. NASA recently announced that the observation target of the Weber space telescope in the first year after liftoff will include two super earths, one of which is cancer 55e whose surface is covered by magma. five months after liftoff, the mirrors of NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (Webb) have been perfectly aligned, and the scientific instruments have been calibrated one after another. It is…

  • NASA plans to conduct the fourth key test of the lunar rocket on June 19

    NASA plans to drag the space launch system (SLS) lunar rocket back to the launch pad 39B of Kennedy Space Center from June 5 to 6 for the fourth launch rehearsal countdown, loading 730000 gallons of ultra cold propellant, so as to clear the way for the first test flight of the launch vehicle. during the wet loading rehearsal last month, several technical problems occurred on the platform, including stuck valves and hydrogen leakage in one of the”umbilical” pipelines connecting SLS and its mobile launch tower. The artemis-1 mission team…

  • NASA announces the idea of a spacecraft that can send astronauts into deep space

    according to nypost Com reported on May 27 , the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced a new vision of using sunlight as power to navigate space. image from: Google The diffractive solar sailing project has received a research and development fund of 2million US dollars. Sunlight does exert a force on people and objects. On earth, this is not obvious, but in vacuum space, light beams can even push large objects forward. If the design is successful, the solar sail will eliminate the need for expensive fuel and…

  • DANGER! NASA astronauts canceled leaving the capsule due to leakage of extravehicular spacesuit, and some astronauts were nearly drowned

    on May 24, 2022, NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration of the United States) announced that it would suspend all astronauts’ extravehicular spacewalk missions. the reason was that on March 23, it was found that the helmet of the extravehicular spacesuit was leaking. after a comprehensive risk assessment, it decided to temporarily cancel the previously scheduled mission. so what’s going on? How did the extravehicular space suit helmet leak? On March 23, NASA astronaut rajacharlie and European Space Agency astronaut Matthias Maurer returned to the capsule after more than seven…

  • NASA hopes its “tissue box size” satellite will set a record for the speed of laser transmission in space

    According to Gizmodo Com reported on May 26, On the 25th, a small gold-plated satellite was launched from the earth. This satellite has set a considerable goal for NASA: to send data at the fastest speed in the history of space laser. NASA’s tbird system carries SpaceX’s “ Transportation -5” Launch. According to NASA, the mission of tbird is to downlink 200 Gigabit data per second, which will be the highest rate achieved by the space laser link. Image from: Google Tbird is about the size of a box of…

  • NASA promotes the wild diffractive solar sail concept project

    This revolutionary method of space travel may enable future scientific missions to study the polar regions of the sun. Above: scientists’ idea of diffracted light sail. The rainbow like pattern is similar to what a CD disc looks like in light. A project to develop diffractive solar sails has entered the third and final phase of NASA’s advanced concept program. The team behind the project now has two years to further develop this unconventional means of space propulsion NASA announced today that in addition to a two-year extension, it will…

  • NASA: unmanned starship landed in the United States after a successful test flight at the International Space Station

    According to the report of Tass News Agency on May 26 , According to the live broadcast on NASA’s website, Boeing’s starship successfully landed in New Mexico on the 25th, the first unmanned flight to the international space station. Image from: Google The spacecraft began to descend from orbit 45 minutes before its scheduled landing. It landed at Baisha airport in New Mexico at 18:49 Eastern time (01:49 Moscow time, May 26). The spaceship carried about 270 kilograms of cargo to the earth. On May 19, a starship carrying a…

  • Refueling, maintenance and even orbit change for satellites in orbit: detailed explanation of NASA’s “osam-1” mission

    It is reported that NASA is planning a mission to demonstrate its ability to repair and upgrade earth orbiting satellites. This task is called “ OSAM-1” (in orbit service, assembly and manufacturing-1), NASA will launch a robotic spacecraft equipped with robotic arms and all the tools and equipment needed to repair, refuel or extend the life of satellites, even if they are not designed to serve in orbit. The first test flight of osam-1 is scheduled to be launched no earlier than 2026, and will enter low earth orbit to…

  • NASA’s investment in diffractive solar navigation project can promote missions to the sun

    According to ZDNet’s report on May 24, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) said on the 24th that it would invest US $2 million in the next two years to promote the development of a new solar sail concept called diffractive light sail. With the help of diffracted light sails, NASA may push a series of scientific spacecraft into orbit around the sun’s poles &mdash— This is difficult for traditional spacecraft propulsion. Image from: Google The diffractive solar navigation project is part of NASA’s innovative advanced concept (niac) program….
