The Best of NASA JPL’s Pumpkin Carving Contest 2018
The engineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Labs have a pumpkin carving contest each year, and the pumpkins the creative ideas these rocket scientists come up with run the gamut from pop culture to space themed. My favorite design this year is the E.T.

How NASA’s Parker Solar Probe Can Survive Inside the Corona of the Sun

How NASA’s Parker Solar Probe Can Survive Inside the Corona of the Sun
The sun is a crazy hot place. Just step outside in any of the summer months in Texas and you know this is true. The other day we talked a bit about the NASA Parker Solar Probe and how it would eventually become the fastest man-made object ever.

NASA’s Parker Solar Probe Could Hit Speeds up to 430,000 mph

NASA’s Parker Solar Probe Could Hit Speeds up to 430,000 mph
NASA has been talking about how hard it is to get a probe or satellite to the Sun. Apparently, it would take 55 times more energy to get to the Sun than to Mars according to scientists.

Creepy Robot That Helped NASA Test Space Suits Is for Sale
Of course NASA used a creepy robot to test space suits meant for real-life astronauts. Because they can. That’s always the reason for creepy robots. The Power-Driven Articulated Dummy as it was apparently called, was designed specifically for NASA by the IIT Research Institute, and used to test space suits between 1963 and 1965.
