  1. NASA visualization shows a black hole's warped world Seen nearly edgewise, the turbulent disk of gas churning around a black hole takes on a crazy double-humped appearance. The black hole's extreme gravity alters the paths of light coming from different parts of the disk, producing the warped image. The black hole's extreme gravitational field redirects and distorts light coming from different parts of the disk, but ex
  2. NASA wants to send nuclear rockets to the Moon and Mars Nuclear propulsion, first floated in the ’60s, is hot again. Enlarge / Nuclear rockets could be used to cut the travel time to Mars in half. NASA Just north of the Tennessee River near Huntsville, Alabama, there’s a six-story rocket test stand in a small clearing of loblolly pines. It’s here, in a secluded corner of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, that the US Army and NASA performed critical tests during the development of the Redstone rocket. In 1958, this rocket
  3. NASA Two astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS), Christina Koch and Jessica Meir, are set to perform the first all-female spacewalk in history later this month. Their work will be part of a slew of upcoming spacewalks in an ongoing project to upgrade the batteries on the space station. When asked about whether it was important for her work to be recognized because of her gender, Koch gave a thoughtful response. “I think it’s important because of the historical nature of what we’re doing,” she said in a video posted to Twitter. “There are a
  4. NASA will soon start testing its first all-electric X-plane Those tests will help develop certification standards for electric aircraft. NASA The first all electric X-plane, the X-57 Mod II, has arrived at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center in California and is now ready to undergo some rigorous testing. X-planes are the aircraft the agency uses to test and evaluate new technologies -- NASA plans to put this plane's electric propulsion system through testing, with the intention of sharing "valuable lessons learn
  5. The ocean on Saturn's moon Enceladus contains the building blocks of life, NASA data reveals A photograph of Enceladus, an icy moon of Saturn, taken by NASA's Cassini probe. NAS/JPL-Caltech Water on Saturn's moon Enceladus contains organic compounds — the building blocks of amino acids that make up DNA and formed the foundations of life on Earth. Data from NASA's Cassini mission revealed
  6. House legislators want to hand NASA’s human spaceflight program over to Boeing Lawmakers also appear to like cost-plus contracts. Enlarge / Mars or the Moon? It’s a debate that has bedeviled NASA for decades. Aurich Lawson / Getty Images On Friday evening, a US House of Representatives committee released H.R. 5666, an authorization act for NASA. Such bills are not required for an agency to function, and they do not directly provide funding—that comes from the appropriations committees in the House and Senate. Authorization b
  7. Starliner’s thruster performance receiving close scrutiny from NASA “Many of the elements of the propulsion system were overstressed.” Enlarge / A close-up view of the Starliner capsule with its service module immediately beneath it. Trevor Mahlmann Nearly one month ago, Boeing completed the first orbital test flight of its Starliner spacecraft with a near-perfect landing at White Sands Space Harbor in New Mexico. The mission had to be cut short due to a well-publicized timing error that delayed the s
  8. NASA scientists are exploring a peculiar strategy for building a Moon base and other off-world structures: growing them onsite out of living mushrooms. The space agency first considered the possibility of fungal space habitats in 2018, but now scientists are conducting tests to determine how well mycelia fungus might grow in Martian soil, Space.com reports. If the research pans out, it would allow future astronauts to construct off-world settlements without needing to carry expensive, heavy building materials with them all the way from Earth — a game-changer in the plan to colonize
  9. Starliner makes a safe landing—now NASA faces some big decisions Contract says a docking demonstration is needed. Will NASA waive this requirement? First image of article image gallery. Please visit the source link to see all images. Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft safely returned from orbit on Sunday morning, landing at White Sands Space Harbor in New Mexico before sunrise. The capsule very nearly hit its bullseye, and initial reports from astronauts on the scene say the vehicle came through in "pristine" condition. The company will now spend several days p
  10. NASA astronaut Jeanette Epps was supposed to be in space right now, as the first African-American crew member living on the International Space Station. But instead she's on the ground doing all of the things astronauts do when they're not in space—training, monitoring programs, working as a capcom in Mission Control, and more. Jeanette Epps, left, is shown as an Expedition 54-55 backup crewmember on December 5, 2017. She was pulled from Expedition 56 at about this time. Since being pulled from her flight in January, a mission that launched about two weeks
  11. Probe launches after technical delay, on mission to get nearer to sun than anything sent before . The Parker solar probe will fly straight through the wispy edges of the corona, or outer solar atmosphere, which was visible during last August’s total solar eclipse. It eventually will get within 3.8m miles (6.1m km) of the sun’s surface, staying comfortably cool despite the extreme heat and radiation, allowing scientists to explore the sun in a way never before possible. “Fly baby girl, fly!” the project scientist Nicola Fox of Johns Hopkins University tweeted just bef
  12. A few months back, we saw the Mars 2020 Rover come to life after it was given a new set of six wheels and arms at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California. This month, on October 8, the rover was finally able to support its own weight on its aluminum wheels. Today, the JPL announced the feat and released a timelapse broadcasting the same as well: Vis-à-vis the feat, Ben Riggs, a mechanical systems engineer working on the Mars 2020 rover remarked: In its press release, NASA also detailed the construction of the aluminum wh
  13. Top officials at NASA say the agency is facing increasing attempts by foreign hackers to target sensitive information as it works to improve its IT security during the COVID-19 pandemic. “NASA has vast troves of intellectual information capital that it has spent decades amassing. I think country actors are after that information, the innovations that NASA is so famous for around the world,” agency Inspector General Paul Martin testified to a House Science, Space and Technology Committee subcommittee on Friday. “There is everything from PII [personally id
  14. A 2024 Moon landing may sound crazy, but NASA is giving its best shot Analysis: Space agency chief is making smart decisions about the lunar program. Enlarge / Will this toddler be a pre-teen, teenager, or an adult before humans go back to the Moon? NASA 113 with 63 posters participating Jim Bridenstine really wanted to become NASA's administrator. As a pilot and congressman from Oklahoma, he sought out opportunities to influence space policy and met with experts whenever he had a chance to do so. He was the rare
