A new theory of inertia could explain how NASA is generating thrust with a new drive design, and may even show them how to make it more powerful.
JUST GO STRAIGHT TO THE REACTIONLESS EM DRIVE: NASA just announced it’s building an electric propulsion system to take us into deep space.
Construction workers used a circular saw, sledge hammer and a pry bar to open the capsule, buried in Houston in April, 1966
We’ve heard of Habitat for Humanity but what about habitats for Mars? Here’s your big opportunity to partner with NASA on coming up with travel and housing solutions for future space explorers. NASA has the rocketry to get Mars explorers into space, the Orion space capsule. The...
The guide was unceremoniously ditched by the agency in 1992, but thanks to a successful Kickstart campaign, it can now be yours.
NASA has already started testing the Orion command module and Space Launch System that will blast it into deep space, but there’s another part of the agency’s plans that haven’t been firmed up […]
NASA has been responsible for developing a lot of things other than spacecrafts, including memory foam, scratch resistant glasses and insulin pumps and now the agency is looking to fuel the future of aviation using green technology.Show More Summary

NASA isn't the only one with X-Planes. Japan is developing it's own experimental aircraft to test an airframe, engines, and other advanced systems and equipment for fifth-generation fighter aircraft for the country's self-defense forces. Show More Summary
Jules Verne’s sci-fi classic gets a new twist in a NASA proposal.
To celebrate the Hubble Space Telescope’s 26th anniversary in space, NASA released a series of images, videos, and simulations of an object known as the Bubble Nebula. In the main image, a giant star is blowing a cosmic hurricane into space, forming a brilliant halo as it smacks into the chill molecular cloud surrounding its parent star. Show More Summary
Before he became the first person to set foot on the moon, Neil Armstrong nearly lost his life in a fiery test-flight crash in 1968.

Jason Labay's life had every condition of a space voyage. Except he wasn't going anywhere. The post A NASA Man Faces the Isolation of Space Without Ever Leaving Earth appeared first on WIRED.
For the first time ever, NASA will attempt to mimic the resolution of an 8-meter optical telescope via the light-combining art of interferometry --- all while using an instrument platform on a balloon-borne gondola undulating high in Earth’s stratosphere.
Throughout its history, NASA has not only been responsible for developing spacecraft, but also cutting-edge aircraft that pushed the boundaries of technology and flight. Now, they’re getting ready to do it again. Read more...
New Horizons has been sending back some incredible information about Pluto, but the Dwarf planet isn’t the only thing it’s been studying. NASA recently noted that the spacecraft’s vantage point is ideal for studying Solar Wind, and it’s been doing just that. Read more...
