NASA is giving the public a chance to have their names stencilled onto a microchip that will be sent to Europa, a moon of Jupiter. If you choose to add it, your name should arrive by 2030.
We have four launches due this week including the orbiting of NASA's TROPICS satellites. China is planning to use a Long March 7 to send a cargo craft up to its Heavenly Palace space station too.
Microsoft is helping to promote Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which features its discontinued Zune media player. It's also helping to promote STEM efforts in schools.
Have you ever wondered how astronauts drink coffee in space? NASA is experimenting with a new sci-fi Space Cup that lets them drink coffee similar to how we drink it on earth, but without gravity.
We have quite a number of rocket launches this week. One of them is a maiden flight which will be interesting and another one will launch a satellite to perform the first global surface water survey.
We have a big event in rocket launches this week! Do you remember NASA's moon mission that got scrubbed a few months ago? Well, this week the space agency is going to take another shot at it!
This week we are expecting four rocket launches from around the world. They are all satellite launches, with one satellite testing out an exo-braking system to help de-orbit the satellite.
This week we have a number of interesting rocket launches. Russia is due to send two cosmonauts and an astronaut to the ISS and United Launch Alliance will launch a top-secret spy satellite.
We have quite a lot of launches this week. Aside from more attempts by NASA to launch the SLS, several companies and countries are planning to launch various satellites into orbit.
NASA is set to launch its historic Artemis I mission today. We will see the launch of the massive Space Launch System (SLS) rocket and the Orion spacecraft will begin its journey to the Moon.
NASA will launch its Artemis I mission this week, the first in a long line of missions to return to the Moon. SpaceX will launch more Starlink satellites, and Blue Origin will ferry NASA satellites.
NASA has announced that is going to upgrade its ancient 30-year old systems with state of the art technology. The next-gen computing systems are going to be around a 100 times faster.
China had launched a rocket to resupply its Tiangong space station. However, the country left a 21-ton Long March 5B booster on its own, and it tumbled back in an uncontrolled descent, claimed NASA
Roscosmos space agency will abandon the International Space Station (ISS) to build successor to Mir. It will fulfill its obligations, including delivering NASA astronauts and cargo to the ISS.
This week we have a very exciting mission scheduled to take off. Rocket Lab will launch an Electron rocket carrying NASA's CAPSTONE CubeSat to the Moon to test the orbit of an upcoming space station.
We have two launches in the week ahead, both from SpaceX. Also, be sure to check out this week's recap section where we've included a video of dust devils on Mars filmed by a NASA rover.
NASA has reached a major milestone in the deployment of the James Webb Space Telescope with the successful alignment of the optics. The agency also shared a focused image of a star taken by JWST.
After the successful launch of the James Webb Space Telescope, we have a quiet week ahead. It'll be interesting though because Russia is planning the third test flight of its Angara A5 rocket.
This week should be interesting for space launches as SpaceX gets NASA's DART probe off the ground. Next year, DART will impact an asteroid satellite known as Dimorphos in an Earth defence test.
NASA may launch its first Artemis unmanned test flight in February 2022. It will be an important step in the space agency's goal of returning to the moon by the end of this decade.
In the week beginning October 25, we'll see two missions to the International Space Station. One will be a cargo mission from Russia and the other will be a commercial crewed mission from SpaceX.
This week there are a number of notable rocket launches. William Shatner will experience space, more taikonauts are going to the CSS and NASA is launching Lucy to explore Jupiter's Trojan asteroids.
This week, the rocket launch schedule just consists of satellite missions. Among them is Landsat 9, the latest in the Landsat program which first began operation in July 1972, almost 50 years ago.
NASA is working with Joby Aviation to test an eVTOL aircraft that could one day be used to ferry passengers around towns and cities by air. The testing will go on for several years.
SpaceX finally stacked the Starship upper stage onto the Super Heavy booster yesterday, bringing the firm one step closer to an orbital launch. Later this week the ISS will receive a cargo mission.
In a letter to NASA's Administrator, Bill Nelson, Jeff Bezos has offered to waive off payments of up to $2 billion. He believes this will enable NASA to embrace "dual-source" strategy.
SpaceX to receive $178 million to fly the Europa Clipper mission on its Falcon Heavy rocket. That's significantly cost effective compared to NASA's in-house SLS that costs around $2 billion.
NASA has pushed back the splashdown for Crew-1 Dragon. The astronauts will now undock from the ISS on Friday before landing in the Gulf of Mexico on Saturday morning. The event will be streamed.
Four astronauts are now in Earth orbit aboard the SpaceX Crew-2 Dragon. They are set to dock at the International Space Station at 5:10 a.m. EDT on Saturday bringing the ISS crew size to 11.
NASA has pushed the Crew-2 Dragon mission back from Thursday to Friday. The crew will reach the space station on Saturday bringing the people on board to 11 until four people leave next week.
NASA has successfully flown the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter. This is the first time a powered, controlled flight has taken place on another planet and will be sure to send back some interesting photos.
The week will see SpaceX take more astronauts to the ISS, a Helicopter fly on Mars, and possibly the first successful landing on SpaceX's Starship after it was selected for NASA's Artemis missions.
NASA has announced that it has awarded SpaceX a $2.89 billion contract to continue developing a human landing system ready for the 2024 Artemis 3 mission which will return Americans to the Moon.
NASA has announced it'll carry out the final Green Run test for the SLS' core stage. This will be the final core stage test before Artemis I in November which will integrate SLS and Orion.
NASA has released footage of the Perseverance rover landing on Mars last week. High definition cameras equipped to the machinery at different vantage points give great shots of Mars and the rover.
NASA has confirmed the successful landing of the Perseverance rover on Mars. In its two year mission, it will take samples from a historical lakebed which will be examing for signs of ancient life.
NASA and Boeing are aiming for no earlier than March 25 for CST-100 Starliner's second unmanned orbital flight test (OFT-2). The test is slated to be a milestone in the NASA Commercial Crew program.
Japan will develop components for the Lunar Gateway's International Habitation (I-Hab) module. The I-Hab module is currently slated to be sent to space in 2026, two years after Gateway's launch.
