There are a lot of rocks flying around through space. Lots of debris, too. Old satellites, spent rocket boosters, even for a short while a spatula that got loose during a space shuttle mission in 2006. All of it swirling around in orbit, creating a bit of a traffic jam. For years, the Pentagon has […]
If the idea of deep space travel conjures up mental images of a winged shuttle — or simply a dusted-off Apollo capsule — your imagination could use a little recalibration. Not since the Moon landing have humans ventured beyond "Low...Show More Summary
Whether it has to do with making pens or building space shuttles, the manufacturing process consists of creating components and then carefully assembling them. But when it comes to infinitely small structures, manipulating and assembling high-performance nanoparticles on a substrate is no mean feat.

Why does this remind me of the tasteless Space Shuttle Challenger jokes I heard as a school kid, “What’s this red button for?” A Saudia pilot accidentally hit the hijack warning button.. twice leading to a security response.
Florida is known as the place where shuttles launched into space. But the view from the ground is pretty nifty, too. Mark Andrew Thomas is a Florida-based wildlife photographer who grew up near the Everglades, a tropical wilderness of varied ecosystems fed by a slow-moving “river of grass” some 60 miles wide.

Google owns dozens of Web properties which collectively run on billions of lines of code — two billion, to be exact. The original space shuttle, a relic from 1982, only required 400,000 lines of code to launch a crew and several tons of fuel into orbit. Show More Summary
NEVER FORGET 1976: The Shuttle Enterprise, about to embark on a continuing mission to test in-atmosphere flight, and never quite get into space. The Shuttle Enterprise's rollout ceremony with most of the main cast from Star Trek was...Show More Summary
If you're like a lot of people, you likely remember what you were doing when you first heard about the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, or the destruction of the Challenger space shuttle. According to a new study, this is due to memory-enhancing chemicals that are released by the brain during "attention-getting" experiences. Show More Summary

A lot of people knew the Space Shuttle had ceramic tiles to protect its nose from reentry heat. That’s mostly because the tiles fell off a lot and each one was a unique shape, so it got a lot of press coverage. However, you didn’t hear as much about the parts of the orbiter that got really hot: the forward part of the wings and the tip of the nose. Show More Summary

As in all cases of designing a complex system, no matter if a new building, a new space shuttle, a new computer or a new software application is to be designed, an architecture provides a kind of master plan for defining the structure of the system. Any good architecture is based on the fundamental
