Fermat's Library has annotated the subroutine to approximate transcendental functions that was initially written by Margaret Hamilton in assembly language for the Apollo 11 mission back in 1969.
Nearing the summer launch window, the Mars Helicopter is now ensconced underneath the Perseverance rover. To ensure a safe landing, the rover's descent stage has been fueled as well.
The Mars 2020 rover is now able to support its own weight on its six aluminum wheels. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory at NASA released a time-lapse of the rover being lowered to the ground.
NASA could launch its InSight mission to Mars today. The new lander will look deep below the surface of the planet to collect data so that scientists can map the planet's vast interior.
The Falcon Heavy is finally on the launchpad at Cape Canaveral. SpaceX's biggest rocket yet has some final engine tests to do before it can blast off, sending Musk's car on a billion year long orbit.
SpaceX's largest rocket, the Falcon Heavy, is scheduled for a launch at the end of the year. The rocket has three boosters, which means SpaceX might have to pull off three of its signature landings.
Elon Musk's goals for the BFR system are clear, he wants nothing short of making humanity a multiplanet species; with a moon base, a manned mission to Mars in 2024, and rocket-trips around Earth too.
The Mars Scientific City aims to be a fully functioning simulation of what it will be like on an actual Mars base. Scientists can spend a year there completely isolated from the outside world.
Elon Musk has posted a simulation video of the planned Interplanetary Transport System ahead of his main speech which he will be giving at the 68th International Astronautical Congress in Australia.
The Mars Curiosity rover had space junkies transfixed with its images and data sent back to Earth. But if NASA goes to Venus, a much different type of rover will be needed to survive the searing heat.
The Russian and Chinese governments are set to sign a new deal pertaining to space exploration in October. The agreement will cover matters such as lunar and deep space exploration.
The research team from Clemson University has been exploring how human urine and breath can feed an engineered yeast that could then produce omega-3 oil, as well as plastics for spare parts in space.
It was the first launch from a private site, and the first from New Zealand, and the first time a rocket was launched using a 3D printed engine, which was also manufactured in just 24 hours.
