James Webb Space Telescope Program close to entering ‘science mode’

The James Webb Space Telescope weighs as much as a school bus, and its sun shield is the size of a tennis court. It’s now a million miles from Earth and will be able to look back 13.5 billion years, close to when the first galaxies were being formed. Gregory Robinson, program director for the […]


NASA ‘will go to the moon differently’ with Artemis, says Johnson Space Center director

This year, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) enters a new era of space exploration, with plans to launch the first phase of the Artemis program by June 2022 for an uncrewed test run to the moon. The missions will pave the way for sending humans back to the moon by 2024, including the […]


NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope could provide clarity on Big Bang

The James Webb Space Telescope launched on Dec. 25 after nearly three decades of development. The roughly $10 billion telescope sent back its first images just a few days ago. Dr. Christyl Johnson, deputy director for technology and research investments at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, said the James Webb Space Telescope, essentially the […]


NASA looking at commercial solutions for space communications systems

Eli Naffah, Communications Services Program (CSP) Formulation Manager at NASA Glenn Research Center, discusses how NASA’s CSP will enhance satellite communications to work toward the agency’s overall mission. NASA’s Communications Services Project will use commercially provided satellite communications capabilities for NASA missions, the goal being to eventually phase out dependency on NASA-owned and operated communications […]


NASA team “really confident” Double Asteroid Redirection Test will hit target

On Nov. 24, NASA launched the first spacecraft sent to hit and redirect a harmless, near-Earth asteroid. It’s called the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART). The trip takes 10 months, but if it is successful, NASA will be able to deflect dangerous asteroids plummeting towards Earth years in advance. Lindley Johnson, planetary defense officer at […]


NASA deputy administrator: “We’re going back to the moon to stay this time”

For nine years in a row, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has been rated the best place to work in government. It is sending people back to the moon and eventually to Mars. Col. Pam Melroy (USAF, ret.), deputy administrator of NASA, said the Apollo program proved going to the moon was possible […]


NASA is working towards fully open science ecosystem by end of decade

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) wants to bridge the gap between data and the people who need it during hurricane season. NASA representatives say climate change boosts the chances of faster and stronger storms. Karen St. Germain, director of the Earth Science Division at NASA, said the agency will deploy the Earth System […]
