NASA is imagining a world where astronauts may have to live in their space suits, without the comfort of a space shuttle or space station bathroom, for six days at a time. Currently, any bathroom breaks in this scenario would employ a high-tech solution called an adult diaper. Show More Summary

NASA was created to beat the Russians into space, or, oops, to the moon. Afterward, it concentrated on commercial endeavors with the space shuttle. That's over, so what's happening with NASA now? The agency has tons of projects going...Show More Summary
Reduce, reuse, recycle becomes a reality in the space program (getting us one step closer to extra-planetary supply chain management) when mission STS-2 launches Space Shuttle Columbia. This was the first time a manned spacecraft was launched into space twice. And now we have … Ready for blast-off!
Let's say you're traveling at about 17,500 miles per hour (28,000 km/h) in low earth orbit, your main engines are out of fuel, and it's your job to guide the spaceship through a fiery re-entry without burning up or skipping out of the...Show More Summary
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.

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.
