  1. NASA has selected its deep space hardware—now comes the fun part "This isn’t a dream any more." Enlarge / NASA's Kathy Lueders, left, and SpaceX's Hans Koenigsmann track the Demo-2 crew mission in 2020. SpaceX is helping to enable NASA to think less about transportation and more about exploration. No NASA official would ever admit this in public, but the 2010s have been a frustrating decade for human spaceflight. After the space shuttle retired in 2011, as most everyone knows, NASA had no way to get its astronauts in
  2. NASA suspends SpaceX’s $2.9 billion moon lander contract after rivals protest SpaceX won’t receive NASA funding until the GAO resolves two formal protests A digital illustration of SpaceX’s Starship lunar lander sitting on the Moon’s surface, as proposed to NASA under its Artemis program. Image: SpaceX NASA has suspended work on SpaceX’s new $2.9 billion lunar lander contract while a federal watchdog agency adjudicates two protests over the award, the agency said Friday.

The Crew Dragon spacecraft which will be returning the astronauts is dubbed Resilience and will undock from the ISS at 5:55 p.m. following the hatch closur
  4. NASA says its Mars helicopter is ready for a historic first flight This is all experimental, so it's quite possible that Ingenuity will fail. Enlarge / NASA’s Ingenuity Mars helicopter is seen here in a close-up taken by Mastcam-Z, a pair of zoomable cameras aboard the Perseverance rover. NASA/JPL-Caltech NASA has resolved the issues with its Ingenuity helicopter on the surface of Mars and is ready to fly. The space agency announced on Saturday that it will attempt to fly the small, 1.8k
  5. NASA: Don't expect humans to fly around Mars on big helicopters "Get to the chopper!" is one phrase astronauts won't be yelling on Mars. NASA's experimental Ingenuity helicopter hopes to take flight on Mars. NASA/JPL-Caltech/ASU Space fans are eagerly awaiting updates on when the Ingenuity Mars helicopter might attempt the first powered, controlled flight on another planet. That gives us time to imagine the possibilities for flying on other worlds. If Ingenuity is successful, could it become a prototype for a Mars chopper that would carry humans? Unfortu
  6. NASA Gets a Quick Peek at a Mysterious Layer of the Sun A new map of the chromosphere’s magnetic field could help us predict solar weather patterns—and anticipate flares that wreak havoc on the power grid. Photograph: Lin Yen Ting/Getty Images Imagine for a minute that you have been transported to the middle layers of the sun’s atmosphere. The sun’s surface, the “visible disc” scientists call the photosphere, boils below you, red-hot plasma heated to 10,000 degrees

  10. Acting NASA chief says 2024 Moon landing no longer a “realistic” target "We are reviewing the program for the most efficient path forward.” Enlarge / Engineer Steve Jurczyk has been serving as NASA's acting administrator since Jim Bridenstine resigned on January 20. NASA's acting administrator said Wednesday evening that the goal of landing humans on the Moon by 2024 no longer appears to be feasible. "The 2024 lunar landing goal may no longer be a realistic target due to the last two years of appropriations, which d
  11. Report: NASA’s only realistic path for humans on Mars is nuclear propulsion "It's the kind of technology challenge that NASA was built for." Enlarge / NASA originally studied nuclear thermal propulsion in the 1960s. Here is concept art for the Nuclear Energy for Rocket Vehicle Applications (NERVA) program. NASA 21 with 20 posters participating Getting humans to Mars and back is rather hard. Insanely difficult, in fact.

  12. NASA picks SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy to launch two key pieces of the Lunar Gateway The decision prompted some contractual hiccups Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images NASA chose SpaceX’s heavy-lift Falcon Heavy rocket to launch the first two elements of the agency’s Lunar Gateway, a planned outpost orbiting the moon. The two Gateway pieces, a propulsion module and astronaut living quarters, were originally designed to launch separately, but NASA picked SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy as a one-trip solution for $332 million.
  13. NASA’s Moon-Exploring Artemis Program Will Move Forward Under Biden The White House pledged its support of the ambitious lunar exploration missions. The Biden administration is on board with NASA’s Artemis program, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed at a press briefing—though she didn’t elaborate on whether or how the modern moon-exploring missions might shift under America’s new leadership. Speculation about Artemis’ fate whirled since President Joe Biden was elected. Following up on a question about the program’s potential continuation p
