NASA Travel Posters for Exoplanets it Discovered: Vacation in Space

NASA Travel Posters for Exoplanets it Discovered: Vacation in Space
NASA certainly has a lot of scientists and space geeks working for it that do very serious work, but most of these guys and gals always seem to keep a sense of humor about the work they do. Take for instance the science of discovering exoplanets. One of these planets…

NASA Wants to Send People to Venus on Space Zeppelins

NASA Wants to Send People to Venus on Space Zeppelins
NASA is getting really metal, as of late. Mars is boring, so we should actually be going to Venus which is full of ultra-high pressures, searing temperatures, and a thick layer of clouds that are made mostly of sulfuric acid. Also, rather than sending a little robot that moves slower…

rHEALTH Diagnostic Device Identifies Diseases from a Drop of Blood: Handheld House

rHEALTH Diagnostic Device Identifies Diseases from a Drop of Blood: Handheld House
We’ve seen a rise in consumer health devices in recent years, but I’ve never been impressed with any of them. Until now. DNA Medical Institute Inc. (DMI) is in the advanced stages of developing a device that can check for “hundreds of diseases” from just a single drop of blood…

The Sun is a Giant Jack-o-Lantern

The Sun is a Giant Jack-o-Lantern
If you ever want to see some cool pictures of stuff in space, NASA and its massive photo archives should be the first place you stop. NASA has pictures of just about anything you can imagine. One of the coolest images I have seen yet from the space agency comes…

NASA Wants You to Design a Gadget for the Next Mars Mission

NASA Wants You to Design a Gadget for the Next Mars Mission
What do you want to learn about Mars? This might be your only chance to find out whatever it is you’re yearning to know, as NASA wants to let you design a device that will be a part of the next Mars mission. I’m assuming that you want to do…

Dad Builds Tiny but Interactive NASA Spaceship, Skyrockets in Dad Rankings

Dad Builds Tiny but Interactive NASA Spaceship, Skyrockets in Dad Rankings
Earlier this year, we looked at a mission control desk that Jeff Highsmith made for his older son. But what’s a mission control center without a spaceship to manage? So a few months later, Jeff set out to build a small spaceship in his younger son’s bedroom. The result is…

Massive Solar Storms in 2012 Could Have Devastated Modern Life on Earth

Massive Solar Storms in 2012 Could Have Devastated Modern Life on Earth
We’ve all seen movies and TV shows over the years that give us a glimpse at what life on Earth would be like if we lost all power and our electronics were inoperable. What you might not know is that in 2012, only a single week separated humanity from a…

3D Printed Nebula Scale Model: Do You Want to Print a Star Cloud?

3D Printed Nebula Scale Model: Do You Want to Print a Star Cloud?
With the right tools, you can 3D print almost anything: a quadcopter, an action figure version of yourself or even a pixel perfect replica of a painting. But a team of astronomers were able to print something that’s literally out of this world. They managed to create a high resolution…

ISEE-3 Satellite Propulsion System Fails, Lunar Impact Possible

ISEE-3 Satellite Propulsion System Fails, Lunar Impact Possible
A couple months back I mentioned that a group of volunteers were working with NASA to get control of a satellite called ISEE-3 that had been orbiting in space all alone for decades. The amateur controllers were able to reestablish communications with the satellite and get it to fire its…

NASA Orion Crew Capsule Completes Parachute Test Flawlessly

NASA Orion Crew Capsule Completes Parachute Test Flawlessly
In the early days of the space program, NASA used capsules atop powerful rockets to fling astronauts and gear into space. We replaced those early capsules with the space shuttle fleet. With the shuttles retired, U.S. astronauts are having to catch a ride with Russia to get to the ISS. …

Scientists Say Titan Smells Like Farts and Gasoline

Scientists Say Titan Smells Like Farts and Gasoline
NASA scientists have been working hard to replicate the chemical composition of the atmosphere of Saturn’s moon Titan. Titan has a very dense, high pressure, brownish atmosphere. We know the chemical composition of Titan’s atmosphere thanks to the Cassini spacecraft and data it has collected.…

NASA Curiosity Rover Watches Mercury for the First Time

NASA Curiosity Rover Watches Mercury for the First Time
NASA has been cruising around the surface of Mars with the Curiosity rover for a while now, performing all sorts of experiments and research. Curiosity has taken selfies, analyzed rocks, and searched for life on the barren red planet. Recently NASA used Curiosity for something new, to take pictures of…

NASA to Test Inflatable Space Housing at ISS

NASA to Test Inflatable Space Housing at ISS
The International Space Station was a massively expensive construction project. Part of that huge cost was the expense of getting the individual modules into space. Those things were massive and very heavy. In the future, astronauts in space might not need a hard construct to live in.…

Satellite Communications Reestablished after 31 Years of Silence

Satellite Communications Reestablished after 31 Years of Silence
A group of amateur astronomers working with NASA’s blessing raised money to help fund the work needed to reestablish communications with a satellite called ISEE-3 that launched in 1978. That satellite was originally supposed to study the Sun, but it was re-tasked and sent much deeper into space to investigate…

NASA Flying Saucer is Its Latest Experimental Vehicle

NASA Flying Saucer is Its Latest Experimental Vehicle
NASA has unveiled its latest flying test vehicle called thee Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator project or LDSD. The project has created a vehicle that looks like the flying saucers we normally expect to see in science fiction. NASA completed the vehicle final assembled at the Navy Pacific Missile Range Facility in…
