3D and a mobile device, you can put high definition, three-dimensional models literally into the hands of kids of all ages," said Stephen Kulczycki, deputy director for communications and education at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, Calif.
Work on the program then continued under a $301 million contract to support a now-canceled NASA effort to develop a manned spacecraft
to augment the space shuttle fleet.
Engineers are designing trajectories to send spacecraft
coasting along these routes to make voyages that were previously unimaginable.
BLAST OFF: One day, these reusable spacecraft
that take off like planes could replace NASA's aging shuttle fleet.
Ddevelops parametric models of spacecraft
subsystem reliability and multi-state failures
The X-37 was one of three X-plane projects launched during the Clinton administration to test technologies for future spacecraft
His team conjectures that sometime in January 2003, a chance increase in pressure from the solar wind pushed the termination shock outward, leaving the spacecraft
A You have to remember, when the two Voyager spacecraft
were launched, the space age was only 20 years old.
From securing a spaceflight opportunity and facilitating the integration of spacecraft
and payloads for launch, to developing human habitats, supplying the International Space Station, and coordinating the transport and operation of cargo and experiments to and from orbit, SPACEHAB clearly demonstrates that "We Mean Business in Space.
The abort system will contain a solid-rocket booster that will sit atop the spacecraft
The panel that compiled the findings says that to understand how life developed in the solar system and the nature and origin of the planets, NASA should launch small-scale robotic spacecraft
to intriguing parts of the solar system every 18 months.
Instead of sending astronauts on interplanetary missions, the agency is concentrating on cost-effective missions involving robotic spacecraft
that orbit or land on planets and moons.
Once the triple-feed equipment is installed, the cable provider can receive and redistribute programming from three spacecraft
in that neighborhood, AMC-1 at 103 degrees, AMC-4 at 101 degrees, and now AMC-18 at 105 degrees.
A fleet of Orion spacecraft
will replace the space shuttles.
Scientists are concerned that the debris from disintegrating spacecraft
is cosine a threat to other spacecraft
