space missions

The first seismological measurements of the Insight were made near the landing of the spacecraft in September 2021. Among the seismic records were also two tremors on the other side of Mars that originated from a meteorite hitting its ground
The space agency says that the industry alone will not be able to move forward and it is required to cooperate with the government and academia. This can help solve bottlenecks that slow down progress in the field
The composition of asteroid Psyche can tell scientists more about Earth's core because the two objects may have a similar structure. Both probably contain platinum, nickel, iron and possibly even gold - materials of commercial interest
On the way there, the spacecraft will receive a gravitational push from Mars. It is expected to reach the orbit around the asteroid in the first stage in June 2029
"These interactions between the Sun's coronal mass ejections and interplanetary dust were theorized twenty years ago, but were not observed until the Parker Solar Probe saw that the coronal ejection acts like a vacuum cleaner, removing the dust from its orbit."
The Osiris-Rex probe returns to Earth small samples of the asteroid Beno, a "real small world" for analysis
Musk found himself trying to please both Ukraine and Russia while trying to prevent escalation. His refusal to provide satellite coverage of a Ukrainian attack on Crimea exposed his dilemma. But Starlink's importance in the war did not diminish
The vehicle discovered a wide variety of heavy elements, but this is the first evidence of the presence of sulfur * The rover will tour the south pole of the moon for two weeks and look for signs of water ice
The spacecraft, designed to test whether the moon could support a permanent base for humans, crashed after entering an unexpected orbit, the Russian space corporation Roscosmos reported
A human error in the commands sent to her caused her antenna to tilt at an angle of two degrees from the Earth. The radio antenna engineers of the deep space network in Australia will try to contact her
Using the high-altitude research plane WB-57, in one of the projects they will photograph the eclipse from a height of 15 km from the ground. The team hopes that taking the pictures above most of the atmosphere of the country will make it possible to see new details of structures in the middle and lower corona
NASA has decided to keep Voyager 2's scientific instruments on for a few more years, allowing for more discoveries from interstellar space.
Airbus offers a "multi-purpose route module" known as the Airbus LOOP. The station includes three decks - and for the first time in the journeys of the human race outside the atmosphere and gravity of the Earth - also a centrifuge that will create gravity for the crew members but only in a small part of the module Airbus offers a "multipurpose orbit module" known as Airbus LOOP. The station includes three decks - and for the first time in the journeys of the human race outside the atmosphere and gravity of the Earth - also a centrifuge that will create gravity for the crew members but only in a small part of the module
using the same main engines and solid rocket booster technology that powered the space shuttle. The space agency has made many improvements, and learned the hard-earned lessons from past disasters. SLS and Orion represent evolution, not revolution. However, there will be nothing routine about this flight.
Apparently the thrust of the first stage was not strong enough and the spacecraft was not able to separate from it. This is still an unmanned test flight and it seems that now the manned tests will move away * This is the fourth prototype to crash on launch
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.
