  1. NASA shows off the best images of Earth taken from the ISS this year There have been 20 continuous years of life on the ISS In brief: In addition to NASA celebrating 20 years of continuous human presence onboard the International Space Station (ISS), crew members took thousands of photographs of Earth during 2020. Now, the agency has revealed the best twenty images of our planet as seen from space. Chosen by the people at the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, the images include Cuba and the Bahamas, the fall colors o
  2. NASA is about to have double Dragons at its space station Also, NASA has agreed to fly on a Falcon 9 that has already been used three times. First image of article image gallery. Please visit the source link to see all images. NASA and SpaceX are making final preparations for a cargo mission that will carry nearly three metric tons of supplies to the International Space Station. This "CRS-21" mission is the 21st cargo supply mission that SpaceX will launch for NASA overall. But it is the first under a new supply contract that runs throu
  3. It's the closest astronomers have ever seen a space rock soar by without smacking into our planet. Close enough for a high-five...NASA An asteroid set a new mark on Friday for the closest pass by our planet without actually impacting. The space rock was discovered with the Asteroid Terrestrial-impact Last Alert System, or ATLAS, run by NASA and the University of Hawaii. It has been designated 2020 VT4, and it came within just 240 miles (386 kilometers) of Earth's surface on Friday. That's closer even than objects in low-earth orbit including the

  6. This year marks the 50th anniversary of that remarkable feat of technology and daring. And while the moonwalkers, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, dominate our memories of the moon landing, there’s a third astronaut who deserves his place in history. Michael Collins piloted the Apollo 11 command module spacecraft in lunar orbit while his two colleagues collected moon rocks. In a rare interview he tells Sarah Abo if it wasn’t for him, one of our greatest successes would have been a monumental failure.
  7. The Universe is a wondrous place, full of vast numbers of planets to explore, unsolved mysteries, and even 'superbubbles' blown by black holes. But there's one thing that space really isn't: loud. Without Earth's air molecules to help you hear, out there in space you'd be listening to a whole lot of silence. Luckily, that hasn't stopped NASA from figuring out a way to produce sound in the soundlessness of space - by 'sonifying' the above image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. Yep, move over music, podcasts, or audio-books- the new thing to listen to is Hu
  8. Netflix's Challenger Is a Gripping Look at NASA in Crisis A new four-part documentary about the ill-fated Challenger mission highlights the risk of putting bureaucracy before science in human spaceflight The new series collects a wealth of archival footage and adds new interviews with the families of the crew and NASA engineers involved with the flight.Photograph: NASA/Netflix It was an unusually frigid morning at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center

NASA NASA is close to finalizing a plan to land humans on the Moon in 2024 and is expected to publicly discuss it next month. While the space agency has not released its revised strategy publicly, a recently updated "mission manifest" for the Space Launch System rocket may provide some clues about the new Artemis Program.

Please visit the source link to see all 6 images. NASA says it will be forced to delay the launch of its multibillion-dollar Perseverance mission to no earlier than July 30. The Mars-bound large rover must launch on an Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida before the middle of August, or it will miss Earth's conjunction with the red planet.
