Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency said it succeeded in transmitting electric power wirelessly to a pinpoint target using microwaves, which is an essential technology needed for the realization of space-based solar power.
Going to Mars without setting up a colony — round-trip manned missions, in other words — would not be enough for the U.S. to reclaim its leadership in space, nor would setting up human outposts on the moon, Aldrin said.
En dépit de la crise ukrainienne, la Russie a annoncé samedi son intention de construire en partenariat avec la NASA une nouvelle station spatiale orbitale pour remplacer la Station spatiale internationale (ISS), dont l'exploitation est prévue jusqu'en 2024.
The real estate developer and hotel magnate estimates he's spent $275 million of his own fortune researching, building, and testing expandable living areas for outer space at Bigelow Aerospace, a company he founded in North Las Vegas 16 years ago.
NASA wants to see if he's right. It's paying him almost $18 million for one of his inflatable habitats to go to the International Space Station later this year.
Last week Mars One announced a list of 100 people who will train on Earth for a one-way mission to the red planet in 2025.
But the venture's accompanying reality TV show - which was to be made by the makers of Big Brother to document their training and new lives on the red planet - has been shelved after the companies were 'unable to reach an agreement on details', MailOnline has learned.
Instead, Mars One is working with a new production company to record the colonists' progress.
The proposed mission has been widely criticised ever since it was first announced in 2011, leading some experts to speculate that it was never more than a pipe dream.
Why is Elon Musk so hellbent on going to Mars? There are two answers to this. One is the actual answer. The other isn't exactly wrong—it’s technically correct—but it’s incidental. And it turns out that’s not even really the right question. Bear with me a moment. You need a little...
Keith's note: Will NASA learn anything from the one year space twins study? Yes, of course they will. Will this knowledge help us "go to Mars"? (gotta use that phrase once a day, right NASA?). Who knows. Not likely
The Planetary Society — a nongovernmental space advocacy organization — has announced its support of a plan to send humans into orbit around Mars' moon Phobos by 2033 and to the surface of the Red Planet by 2039.
WASHINGTON — A module built by Bigelow Aerospace will join the International Space Station later this year in a test of both the company’s technology and NASA’s use of alternative contracting techniques.
NASA and Bigelow Aerospace marked the completion of all the development milestones for the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) in a ceremony March 12 at the company’s North Las Vegas, Nevada, headquarters. Bigelow built BEAM under a $17.8 million contract NASA awarded in late 2012.
WASHINGTON — Even though the International Space Station appears likely to remain in use well into the next decade, some in the space industry are pressing NASA to start developing a strategy for what comes after the ISS, an approach that may rely heavily on commercial facilities.
Currently, the five ISS partners — Canada, Europe, Japan, Russia and the United States — have agreed to operate the ISS only through 2020. In January 2014, the Obama administration proposed extending ISS operations to at least 2024.
