"If budget considerations improve, JPL hopes to host an Open House at a future date, perhaps as early as fall 2013," the Jet Propulsion Laboratory said.
Like many of his colleagues at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., Shyam Bhaskaran is working a lot with asteroids these days. And also like many of his colleagues, the deep space navigator devotes a great deal of time to crafting, and contemplating, computer-generated 3-D models of these intriguing nomads of the solar system.

According to the fresh news from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory there is a chance that four pieces of hardware from a spacecraft that the Soviet Union landed on Mars in 1971 appear in images from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Read more...
Ion thruster photo from NASA A team from MIT is working on developing ionic wind thrusters as an energy-efficient, low-emission alternative to conventional propulsion technologies like jet engines. The new thrusters would use ionic energy, which is created when a current passes between two electrodes. If one electrode is thinner than the other, it creates [...]
This weekend, you might head out to your garage, shed or makeshift propulsion lab and whip up a little do-it-yourself project. A chair, a table perhaps. Maybe even a jet engine. OK… that last one is a bit of a stretch. That is unless you’re the crew over at MAKE Magazine, who figured that building a turbojet would be a cool thing to do. More »
Researchers have run their own experiments and found that ionic thrusters may be a far more efficient source of propulsion than conventional jet engines.
A laboratory experiment at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., simulating the atmosphere of Saturn's moon Titan suggests complex organic chemistry that could eventually lead to the building blocks of life extends lower in the atmosphere than previously thought. The results now point out another region on the moon that could brew up prebiotic materials.
Yvonne Brill, 88, died last week in New Jersey. According to her New York Times obituary, which ran on Saturday, her standout accomplishments were the eight years she took off from work to raise her three children, the way she followed her husband from job to job, and her “mean beef stroganoff” recipe. Oh, yeah, [...]
