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
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
A large impact crater under the North Atlantic Ocean reveals - the deadly asteroid was not alone
A joint experiment by the Israeli Space Agency with its German counterpart will test the degree of protection the suit provides against radiation in space. If the experiment is successful, there is a high chance that the technology will become standard in future deep space missions to the Moon and Mars
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
Expedition 67 commander Oleg Artemyev received an order from the control center in Moscow to return to the station as soon as possible due to a malfunction in his space suit's battery
NASA's Lunar IceCube -- Cubesat for observing the moon ready for Artemis 1 launch
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
The project's research director on behalf of the European Space Agency: "The flight on Ariane 6 will not allow all the extra propellant that would be necessary to lower the orbit. Instead we will slow ourselves down by making repeated passes through the upper atmosphere of Venus, lowering to 130 km from the face of the planet"
Yuri Borisov, the new head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, said in a meeting with Vladimir Putin on July 26, 2022 that future efforts will focus on a new Russian space station.
