space 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
The exhibition: Jessica Meir, 'View from above' - an astronaut's impressions and reflections on our planet will be on display until May, admission is free
The article "Surface changes observed on a volcano in Venus during the Magellan mission" describes the analysis of the observations in which surface changes were discovered on the Sif Mons volcano during the Magellan spacecraft mission in 1991-1994
The innovative design comes with special features to support the astronauts as they conduct scientific experiments on the surface of the moon as well as the women who will be one of the first crew to land. NASA hopes to have the updated suit ready for the Artemis III moon mission in 2025
The main challenge in farming on the moon is creating a habitable environment that can protect plants from the harsh conditions on the moon's surface. This can be achieved through the use of greenhouses or other controlled environments that will protect plants from the extreme temperatures and radiation but it is also required to implement this using local materials
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 deputy director of NASA added, "It is important that we create an environment where people feel free to speak." The interview took place during the 18th Ilan Ramon Space Conference in Tel Aviv.
Mission Control is characterizing its new "green" propulsion system and developing an updated plan for Lunar Fleshlight's journey to the Moon
ISPACE was a competitor of SPACEIL in the Lunar X Prize competition and now they will try to do what Genesis 1 failed to do - to be the first private company to land on the moon
The spacecraft completed a flight that included a lap of the moon and carried several scientific experiments. It is now aboard a US military ship that will take it to San Diego, from where it will be transferred to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida for testing
An astronomer explains what to expect and why it's important and how technological developments in the last 50 years have made the moon a much more accessible place
Later today, the Orion spacecraft is expected to deploy its solar collectors and begin tests that will last several days in an elliptical orbit around the Earth, until the mission engineers decide to move it into orbit around the moon. More updates later today in a new article
These dark spots on the Sun, visible in ultraviolet light, are called coronal holes and are areas where fast solar wind bursts out into space. By chance, they managed to take a photo that looked like the sun was smiling.
The duration of Dimorphos' orbit of the asteroid Didamos was shortened by about half an hour
Observations from the Juno spacecraft's flyby of the fair moon have provided the first close-up in more than two decades of this ocean world, resulting in stunning images and unique science
DART, which is the world's first attempt to change the speed and trajectory of an asteroid in space, is trying a method to deflect asteroids that could be useful if such a need arises in the future to protect Earth. 
On Saturday, September 17, they will conduct an engine cooling test and then it will be decided when it will be possible to launch Artemis 1, after the launch was delayed twice due to leaks
It turns out that the fault lies in the fact that a certain device that is still working tried to transfer the data through the spacecraft's main computer, which has been malfunctioning for many years. The engineers found a way around this
After the launch was postponed due to a malfunction in one of the engines, NASA engineers made a series of repairs * Duration of the launch window: XNUMX hours
The goal of Project Artemis, named after the sister of Apollo and daughter of Zeus in ancient Greek mythology, is to create a long-term human presence on our closest celestial neighbor
Update: A malfunction in one of the engines caused the countdown to stop. Even if the fault is fixed, it is necessary to cool all four engines at the same time. If the launch does not take place today, the next launch window - on Friday evening
