NASA is using a huge water tank to prepare its astronauts for the Artemis mission in 2024. The US space agency explained that the teams are moving around, setting up habitats, collecting samples and deploying experiments as they will on the Moon.
NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) will fly over the part of the Moon where the lander is lying after it lost contact with the ISRO control centre when it was 335 metres from the surface of the Moon on September 7.
NASA won two Emmy Awards during this past weekend. One was for its InSight mission to Mars and the other for its Demonstration Mission 1, a test flight of the SpaceX Crew Dragon to the International Space Station.
The CubeSat called Cislunar Autonomous Positioning System Technology Operations and Navigation Experiment (CAPSTONE), is approximately the size of a small microwave oven. It will pass as close as 1,000 miles and as far as 43,500 miles from the surface of the Moon.
The LRO is a robotic spacecraft currently orbiting the Moon. It studies the Moon's surface, clicks pictures, and collects data that help in figuring out the presence and possibility of water ice and other resources on the Moon, as well as plan future missions to it.
The rover is scheduled to launch between July 17 - August 5 2020, with the spacecraft expected to touch down on Mars in February 2021. The official Twitter handle of the NASA invited people to register their names that would be stencilled on chips and sent aboard the rover.
The March mission was part of NASA’s Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) project, a five-year, $30 million effort aimed at improving sea level rise projections by understanding how warming oceans are melting ice sheets from below - the most ambitious research on the subject to date
NASA announced a new system of Exoplanets, which are Earth-size, and could potentially hold life.These exoplanets are located outside of our solar system and orbit a star, which is why they are named so. So why is the discovery of these Exoplanets such a big deal, and what should you know about them? We break […]
NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko have arrived back on Earth after nearly a year aboard the International Space Station. The record-long spaceflight is intended to pave the way for future human travel to Mars. Accompanied by cosmonaut Sergey Volkov the three safely made a parachute landing in Kazakhstan.
