The device fires up to a whopping 6,000 degrees Fahrenheit, obliterating the booster’s nozzle plug. Show More Summary
The process of 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, holds promise for advancements in almost every industry, including even rocket science. Engineers from NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, used neutrons recently to help understand the potential benefit of additive manufactured rocket engine components.
The Microsoft HoloLens augmented reality headset is being used as part of Destination: Mars, a temporary exhibit at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. It will allow visitors to see a simulation of what it looks like on the planet as seen through the Curiosity Mars Rover. ...
NASA astronomers have gained new insight into the enormous flares from stars being chewed up by supermassive black holes.
Former astronaut Buzz Aldrin yesterday launched the “Destination: Mars” exhibit at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. It is an interactive exhibit using the Microsoft HoloLens which will allow guests to “visit” several sites on Mars, reconstructed using thousands of real imagery from NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover, which has been exploring the Red Planet since […]
Nasa’s Cassini spacecraft filmed Saturn for almost 44 hours in April 2016 to create this video showing four Saturnian days as the planet turns. A day on Saturn is about 10-and-a-half hours. Cassini captures storms on Saturn’s surface and its many rings as they unfold. In April 2017 Cassini will move towards Saturn’s rings and then to the planet itself Continue reading...
It’s like a great cosmic belch. According to NASA, when black holes swallow stars, they release a burst of energy, a flare containing high-energy radiation, including ultraviolet and X-ray light. Now, astronomers have been able to observe...Show More Summary
