  4. NASA and SpaceX say they are ‘go’ to proceed with historic crewed flight on May 27th Though there’s still more work to be done After two days of intense reviews, NASA is giving its commercial partner SpaceX the thumbs-up to launch its first astronauts to space next week. There’s still more work to be done by both the agency and SpaceX, including another review on Monday, but officials decided there were no major issues standing in the way of the launch. “It was a good review, great discussion,” NASA administrator
  5. The numbers don’t lie—NASA’s move to commercial space has saved money “Together, we have become stronger for this nation.” Enlarge / The SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft arrives at Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

  6. Another day, another data breach. This time it's the United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)NASA today confirmed a data breach that may have compromised personal information of some of its current and former employees after at least one of the agency's servers was hacked.In an internal memo sent to all employees on Tuesday, NASA said the unknown hackers managed to gain access to one of its servers storing the personally identifiable information (PII), including social security numbers, of current and former employees.The agency said NASA discovered the breach on Octo
  7. NASA hacked because of unauthorized Raspberry Pi connected to its network NASA described the hackers as an "advanced persistent threat," a term generally used for nation-state hacking groups. This low-angle self-portrait of NASA's Curiosity Mars rover shows the vehicle at the site from which it reached down to drill into a rock target called "Buckskin." The MAHLI camera on Curiosity's robotic arm took multiple images on Aug. 5, 2015, that were stitched together into this selfie. N
  8. NASA does not deny the “over $2 billion” cost of a single SLS launch "NASA is working to bring down the cost of a single SLS launch." Enlarge / The Space Launch System was created as part of a political compromise between US Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) and senators from Alabama and Texas. Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images For the first time, a government cost estimate of building and flying a single Space Launch System rocket in a given year has been released. This estimate of "over $2 billion" came in the form of a letter from th
  9. NASA rejects Blue Origin’s offer of a cheaper upper stage for the SLS rocket Each launch of the SLS rocket may cost on the order of $2 billion. Enlarge / A video still showing an Exploration Upper Stage in flight. NASA On Bullshit American crap, NASA posted a document that provides some perspective on the agency's long-term plans for the Space Launch System rocket. This is the agency's titanic booster that has been under development since 2010, has an annual budget of more than $2 billion, and will not fly before at least 20
  10. Milky Way's center will be revealed by NASA's Webb Telescope The center of our Milky Way galaxy is hidden from the prying eyes of optical telescopes by clouds of obscuring dust and gas. But in this stunning vista, the Spitzer Space Telescope's infrared cameras penetrate much of the dust, revealing the stars of the crowded galactic center region. The upcoming Webb telescope will offer a much-improved infrared view, teasing out fainter stars and sharper details. Credit: NASA, JPL-Caltech, Susan Stolovy (SSC/Caltech) et al. The center of our galaxy is a c
  11. Elon Musk and NASA administrator claim SpaceX could fly its first crew in the first part of 2020 The two are reassuring everyone they’ve made up SpaceX CEO Elon Musk and NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine reassured journalists this afternoon that their partnership to fly NASA astronauts to the space station is still strong and that the first crews could launch on SpaceX vehicles as soon as the first quarter of next year. This show of strength at SpaceX headquarters comes just two weeks after the two figures exchanged public jabs in the press, suggesting friction between
  12. As NASA tries to land on the Moon, it has plenty of rockets to choose from One of them is even something the agency is calling a "commercial" SLS. Enlarge / If you want to buy a commercial SLS launch, you also need to rent the mobile launcher from NASA. NASA Last week, NASA held an "industry day" for companies hoping to win lunar lander contracts from the government as part of its Artemis program. During the teleconference, industry officials could ask questions about NASA's plans for how best to get astronauts from an orbit

  20. Back to the moon to stay — NASA shares details of lunar surface missions—and they’re pretty cool But there is a catch if you want to bring back Moon rocks. First image of article image gallery. Please visit the source link to see all images. There are a lot of reasons to be skeptical that NASA will actually enact the Artemis Moon program to land astronauts on the Moon by 2024—Congress may not fund it, NASA's large, costly rocket remains far behind schedule, and history has been unkind to deep-space exploration programs since Apollo. However,

NASA spacecraft unraveling Sun’s mysteries as it spirals closer to our star The Parker Solar Probe may help us figure out where the Sun’s solar wind comes from In August of last year, NASA sent a spacecraft hurtling toward the inner Solar System, with the aim of getting some answers about the mysterious star at the center of our cosmic neighborhood. Now more than a year later, that tiny robot has started to decode some of the mysteries surrounding our Sun’s behavior, after venturing closer to our parent star than any human-made object has before. That spacec
  22. NASA’s giant ‘Super Guppy’ plane delivers the agency’s spacecraft to Ohio The Orion capsule will now go through a round of tests Transporting a large space capsule around Earth can be a daunting process, but NASA has its own various equipment for such jobs — one of which is a very big plane with a very big belly. Known as the “Super Guppy,” NASA’s cavernous plane is capable of carrying large loads from point A to point B, and the aircraft just transported the space agency’s next-generation passenger spacecraft to Ohio for a round of testing.
