back to the moon
Yesterday, after it separated from the upper stage of the Vulcan launcher, it became clear that there is a fuel leak from the spacecraft's engines that change its balance and do not allow it to generate electricity from solar energy. The Astrobotics company says that they will try to turn it into a lunar compass, even if only for a short time * On board the spaceship were five dedicated NASA instruments
The Peregrine lander is carrying a variety of scientific instruments to study the radiation and soil composition on the moon, along with an unusual payload that includes a small rover, a bitcoin coin, and the ashes and DNA of several celebrities - including Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry
With the development of civilization comes roads, and this will be especially true on the moon. To do this, the dust must be kept away. In the Apollo era, dust blocked equipment and worn space suits.
The fact that so many nations - the United States, Russia, China, India, Israel - and even commercial entities are interested in landing on the moon means that there are many opportunities to create new partnerships
The spacecraft made history as the first to land on the south pole of the moon. India became only the fourth country to make a soft landing on the moon
The four astronauts aboard Orion will use a target attached to the space propulsion stage to demonstrate approach operations to test Orion's navigation capabilities. The target underwent illumination tests in May to ensure that it could be seen in different lighting conditions in space
The moon still has much to tell us about the origin and development of the solar system. It also has scientific value as a platform for observational astronomy
The Space Operations Mission Directorate remains responsible for all space operations in low Earth orbit and focuses on the space station, space communications, and navigation that support all of NASA's human exploration and science missions.
Among the four are Victor Glover who spent six months on the International Space Station, but at NASA for some reason they emphasize the color of his light, as well as Christina Hemock Cook - the first woman to fly to the lunar orbit
what time is it on the moon Researchers suggest accommodating the time zone system on the moon as well
NASA's associate director for exploration systems development (manned flights), Jim Frey, provided updates on the progress of the Artemis program in an interview with the science website
The mission, whose launch is scheduled for Monday, August 29, 2022, is a test flight - without a crew - of the launch system into space and the Orion crew compartment. NASA hopes it will pave the way for routine exploration of space beyond Earth's orbit
NASA will discuss the formation of the final sites with the scientific community and with SpaceX whose landing vehicle, Starship is manufactured according to its capabilities
NASA's target launch date is now August 29th at 08:33 EST in a two-hour time window. If there is a successful launch on August 29th the mission will last about 42 days - until October 10th
Current estimates indicate that the upper ten meters of the Moon's surface contain enough elemental oxygen to create enough O2 for every person on Earth for the next hundred thousand years - more than enough to settle on the Moon!
Battelle Energy Alliance and NASA are seeking industry partners to design a nuclear power system for lunar applications
The system created with Dassault Systèmes' 3DEXPERIENCE platform simulates a self-sustaining food production system, furthering Interstellar Lab's mission to produce and recycle food, water, and air to support sustainable life on Earth, the Moon, and Mars
An Israeli company intends to extract oxygen from the soil of the moon - and fuel SpaceX to Mars The Helios solution, supported by the Israeli Space Agency, may reduce the cost of launches and enable a long-term human presence in deep space
Until now, the spacecraft has been in the Neil Armstrong assembly facility at the Kennedy Space Center. Now Lockheed Martin, which built it, has handed it over to the ground crew for refueling and preparation for launch later this year
