Science fairs are for losers! These high schoolers are building for NASA.
There's good news for NASA, bad news for Cassini, and what on earth do bricks have to do with space? The post Cassini, the James Webb Space Telescope, and Bricks: This Week in Space appeared first on ExtremeTech.
NASA began the tradition of playing music to wake up astronauts in 1965. Since you don't have the normal sunrise and sunset in orbit, it was considered important to regulate astronauts' sleep time to coordinate with each other and with Mission Control. Show More Summary
From the austere Newtonian universe of Spacewar! to the lush galactic disc of Mass Effect, video games have been taking us beyond Earth's atmosphere for decades, but in the eyes of Dr Jeff Norris of the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration, few have done the spirit and practicalities of space travel justice.

As NASA’s amazing Cassini spacecraft takes on technological death-defying feats months before it goes into a final plunge into Saturn’s atmosphere, it continues to transmit images back to Earth of things never seen before this closeShow More Summary
NASA is set to use a radical new "tricorder" DNA sequencer to work out what a mysterious fungus found growing on the International Space Station is. Astronauts have reported funding the strange microbial growths on walls and surfaces, and it has even clogged waterlines. Show More Summary
NASA is usually so busy showing off all the awesome stuff it finds out in space that it's easy to lose track of the cool projects it's working on here on Earth, but the new "space fabric" designed by engineers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory is just too cool to overlook. Show More Summary
Houston, we have a problem.
Neptune appears to be moving backward in its orbit in these images taken by the Kepler spacecraft, but it’s all a trick.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft dove between Saturn and its rings yesterday (April 26), snapping the closest-ever views of Saturn's atmosphere.
A new government audit reveals that NASA is running low on spacesuits and new ones might not be available in time. Astronauts have been using the same suits since 1981. The suit were only designed to last 15 years, but NASA was ableShow More Summary
What did Saturn say to NASA this week? “High Five.” Here’s a look at a few of the top trending Google searches orbiting the week of April 24. What have you done this week? For the first time ever, a spacecraft cruised through the narrow gap between Saturn and its rings. Show More Summary
As the first rocket to put people on the moon, NASA's Saturn V occupies a special place in the history of space exploration. And now it can occupy a special place in your Lego collection, too, with the company today launching an Apollo...Show More Summary
(Arizona State University) NASA has selected an instrument developed by Mark Robinson of ASU's School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE) and Malin Space Science Systems (MSSS) to map the terrain and search for evidence of frost or ice deposits in the Moon's permanently shadowed regions (PSRs).
NASA is years away from having new spacesuits for its deep-space astronauts despite spending nearly $200 million on three separate development efforts over the past decade.
(NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) Two NASA satellites provided forecasters in Australia with visible and rainfall data as Tropical Cyclone Frances strengthened in the western Timor Sea. NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible image...Show More Summary
The first images from the Grand Finale have been sent back to NASA, and they're stunning. They're also just the start -- Cassini has 21 more close orbits planned. The post Cassini’s First Grand Finale Images of Saturn Are In, and They’re Stunning appeared first on ExtremeTech.
How astronauts go to the toilet in zero gravity has always interested some. Now it can revealed unwanted difficulties - among them issues of ownership - can arise. These transcripts from NASA's Apollo 10 mission to the moon in May 1969 show that when it came to boldly going, all was not well. Show More Summary
