Artemis I Moon Rocket to Return to Launch Pad 39B in Early June

Kennedy Space Center FL (SPX) May 20, 2022 The Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and Orion spacecraft are slated to return to launch pad 39B at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida in early June for the next wet dress rehearsal attempt. Engineers successfully completed work on a number of items observed during the previous wet dress rehearsal...

Volunteers watching the skies

Paris (ESA) May 20, 2022 More than 11 thousand people around Europe and the world have turned their smartphones into space monitoring tools by downloading the CAMALIOT app, so far delivering more than 53 billion measurements of meteorology and space weather patterns to researchers. Leave it by your window each night with your satnav positioning...

Ghostly 'mirror world' might be cause of cosmic controversy

Albuquerque NM (SPX) May 20, 2022 New research suggests an unseen 'mirror world' of particles that interacts with our world only via gravity that might be the key to solving a major puzzle in cosmology today - the Hubble constant problem. The Hubble constant is the rate of expansion of the universe today. Predictions for this rate - from...

Sampling Strategy for the Delta Front Campaign

Pasadena CA (JPL) May 20, 2022 The past few weeks have been exciting ones for Perseverance's science team. At the "Enchanted Lake" site, we took our first look at what appear to be some of the bottommost sedimentary layers that make up the Jezero crater delta. Since then, we've re-traced our steps back towards "Three Forks" and have begun...

Space agencies provide global view of our changing environment

Paris (ESA) May 20, 2022 International collaboration among space agencies is central to the success of satellite Earth observation and data analysis. ESA, NASA and JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) have continued their joined effort to develop a storytelling dashboard that combines their resources and expertise to strengthen our global...

China's Zhurong rover switches to dormant mode in severe Martian dust storm

Beijing (XNA) May 20, 2022 Mars rover Zhurong has been switched to dormant mode while waiting out a dust storm on the surface of the planet, the China National Space Administration said on Friday. The latest images taken by cameras onboard China's Tianwen-1 Mars orbiter show a dust storm passing over the patrol area of Zhurong. Scientists...

New calculations of Solar spectrum resolve decade-long controversy about the Sun's chemical composition

Heidelberg, Germany (SPX) May 20, 2022 Astronomers have resolved the decade-long solar abundance crisis: the conflict between the internal structure of the Sun as determined from solar oscillations (helioseismology) and the structure derived from the fundamental theory of stellar evolution, which in turn relies on measurements of the present-day...

Airbus to further develop LISA gravitational wave observatory mission

Friedrichshafen, Germany (SPX) May 20, 2022 Airbus has been awarded a contract from the European Space Agency (ESA) to further develop the implementation of LISA (Laser Interferometer Space Antenna), one of the most ambitious science missions ESA has planned to date. With Phase B1 now underway, the detailed mission design and final technology...

NASA's HyTEC to Help Jets Burn Less Fuel

John Gould for NASA Aeronautics News Cleveland OH (SPX) May 20, 2022 What if we told you we could reimagine the way a jet engine works to generate the same amount of power using less fuel? Our aeronautical innovators are designing a new jet engine that, compared to current engines, will produce the same thrust and even look the same on...

Hubble Reaches New Milestone in Mystery of Universe's Expansion Rate

Baltimore MD (SPX) May 20, 2022 Completing a nearly 30-year marathon, NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has calibrated more than 40 "milepost markers" of space and time to help scientists precisely measure the expansion rate of the universe - a quest with a plot twist. Pursuit of the universe's expansion rate began in the 1920s with measurements...
