NASA and its International Space Station partners have set a new schedule and new crew assignments that will include the first flight of NASA astronaut Jessica Meir, an extended stay for NASA astronaut Andrew Morgan, and a record-setting flight for NASA astronaut Christina Koch.
On its final flyby of Saturn’s largest moon in 2017, NASA’s Cassini spacecraft gathered radar data revealing that the small liquid lakes in Titan’s northern hemisphere are surprisingly deep, perched atop hills and filled with methane.
A group of 14 graduating UCF engineering and computer science seniors spent more than a year designing and building a fishing boat that creates only minimal noise.
When plants take in too much energy, they don’t get fat — they lighten up. They absorb more sunlight than they need to power photosynthesis, and they get rid of the excess solar energy by emitting it as a very faint glow.
The Florida Tech Office of Research in collaboration with NASA will host Space Technology Day on the university’s Melbourne campus Thursday, May 23. Due to limited seating, pre-registration is required. There will be no on-site registration.
NASA is working right now to send American astronauts to the surface of the Moon in five years, and the agency has its sights set on a place no humans have ever gone before: the lunar South Pole.
A Northrop Grumman Cygnus spacecraft scheduled to liftoff on April 17 carries supplies and scientific experiments to the International Space Station.
Results from NASA’s landmark Twins Study, which took place from 2015-2016, were published Thursday in Science. The integrated paper — encompassing work from 10 research teams — reveals some interesting, surprising and reassuring data about how one human body adapted to — and recovered from — the extreme environment of space.
A new kind of atomic clock, non-toxic propellant system and missions to characterize how space weather interferes with satellites and communication transmissions are one step closer to liftoff. With the second-ever SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch complete, these NASA technologies await the powerful rocket’s next flight.
Smart spacesuits and solar surfing may sound like the stuff of science fiction, but they are just two of the technology concepts NASA has selected for further research as part of the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program.
Stennis Space Center employee Mike Pannell, a resident of Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, and native of Titusville, Florida, was recognized April 3 by NASA’s Space Flight Awareness Program with an Honoree Award for outstanding support of human spaceflight.
NASA is a step closer to returning astronauts to the Moon in the next five years following a successful engine test at NASA’s Stennis Space Center near Bay St. Louis, Mississippi.
All Points’ Business Specialist Donna Noonan received kudos and gratitude from NASA for a job well done recently in regard to an extensive upgrading to Cradle.
The SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch is currently scheduled for Wednesday, April 10, with a window of 6:35 p.m. through 8:35 p.m. Watching the launch from Port Canaveral is very popular and many thousands of people have enjoyed spectacular views from the Port.
“Pretty exciting day.” That’s how Flight Dynamics Officer Jay H. Greene described his shift on this day (April 4) in 1968 when he was working the problem-ridden flight of Apollo 6.
From precision GPS to batteries for one of the world’s first commercial all-electric airplanes, NASA technology turns up in nearly every corner of modern life.
Parkinson’s disease affects more than 5 million people on Earth. Research on the International Space Station could provide insight into this chronic neurodegenerative disease and help scientists find ways to treat and prevent it.
Brig. Gen. Doug Schiess, 45th Space Wing commander, spoke with community partners about current and future missions during the inaugural State of the Installation event at Patrick Air Force Base, Fla.
A small asteroid has been caught in the process of spinning so fast it’s throwing off material, according to new data from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and other observatories.
Astronomers found a pulsar hurtling through space at nearly 2.5 million miles an hour — so fast it could travel the distance between Earth and the Moon in just 6 minutes.
