NASA has developed carbon nanotubes, a material that aims to cut down mass and weight of payloads in future space explorations. On May 16, the space agency launched a sounding rocket to test newly-developed carbon nanotubes, among other technologies. The test aims to determine its possible use in future payloads. Carbon nanotubes are small hollow […]

The James Webb Telescope, the soon to be largest telescope launched into space, completed its rigorous environment tests at the Goddard Space Flight Center. This signals the telescope’s transfer to NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston for more testing. Considered as the world’s most advanced space telescope, the Webb has a 6.5-meter primary mirror. The mirror’s size […]
NASA plans to use precise landing technology for spacecrafts. This technology will help future missions to the solar system’s still-unexplored regions. Presently, many areas in the solar system remain unexplored. These areas are considered unreachable due to technology gaps in present landing systems, NASA explained. To address this issue, NASA is developing the next-generation lander […]
The Cassini spacecraft makes its final close flyby of Saturn’s moon Titan this weekend. This signals the mission’s transition to its Grand Finale. The orbiter’s closest approach to Titan will occur at 11:08 p.m. PDT (April 21) or 2:08 a.m. EDT (April 22) It will be about 608 miles or 979 kilometers above Titan and travelling […]
Saturn’s Enceladus contains a chemical energy source that supports life, NASA reveals. Its water vapour contains hydrogen and other molecules. The Cassini mission findings indicated the presence of ample hydrogen in the moon’s ocean. This means that microbes, if any exist there, could use hydrogen to obtain energy. The energy can be generated by combining […]
The sun might be around 149 million kilometres away from Earth but solar storms could still interfere with radio communications on our planet. A team of researchers from Denmark, Canada and the United States reached this conclusion after they conducted a study on the solar storm that reached Earth on February 19, 2014. This solar storm affected […]
