Flying at hypersonic speed could revolutionize transportation, but there are incredible engineering and logistical challenges we need to get through first. So, how close are we to hypersonic travel? Hypersonic speed greatly exceeds supersonic speed by Mach 5 and above. And supersonic speed is when you’re traveling faster […]
Blue Origin’s New Shepard spacecraft flew for NASA’s biggest mission. The New Shepard (fully reusable) launched into space today(Jan. 23) on its 10th-ever test flight. Blue Origin officials said, “It carried at least eight NASA-sponsored research and technology payloads to suborbital space and back.” The mission reached an […]
NASA is ready to dispatch a $1.5 billion spacecraft on a fiercely hot voyage toward the Sun, offering scientists the nearest ever view of our strange and mysterious star. The probe is named after Eugene Parker, it will end up being the first spacecraft ever to fly through the Sun’s scorching atmosphere, known as the corona. Understanding how the corona works will help scientists anticipate dangerous space weather storms.
Mars will look brighter in the night sky. That is on account of the red planet will be at its nearest point to Earth since 2003 all through June and July, as our planet goes amongst Mars and the Sun.
NASA just declared that it plans to launch a minute, four-pound, autonomous helicopter along with its 2020 rover mission.
