The event will be held at the James Webb Auditorium located in the NASA Headquarters and will be broadcasted live on the NASA Channel

NASA robot to build biggest rocket parts for Mars mission

A giant robot at the NASA facility is helping engineers build the biggest, lightweight composite rocket parts so far made for future space vehicles to deeper missions including Mars. Mounted on a 40-foot-long track at the composites technology centre of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, the robot’s head has 16 spools of

NASA’s new system to avoid traffic jams at Mars

Five active spacecrafts are now orbiting the Red Planet, including one from India, leaving NASA with no option but to beef up traffic monitoring, communication and manoeuvre planning to ensure that Mars orbiters do not collide with one another. The newly-enhanced collision-avoidance system from the US space agency accurately warns if two orbiters approach each

NASA just found ‘Earth 2.0’

Earth could become uninhabitable at any moment due to global warming, nuclear annihilation or having to deal with another Transformers movie, but NASA just discovered a distant cousin. Meet Kepler-452b, the planet the agency calls “Earth 2.0.” It was discovered by NASA’s floating observatory found orbiting in the ‘habitable zone’ of constellation Cygnus. That’s significant

NASA craft discovers heart shape on Pluto as flyby nears

There’s a near-perfect heart shape on Pluto’s rusty red surface. The dwarf planet is dotted with bright points which may be ice caps, and a mysterious dark shape nicknamed “The Whale.” Scientists are seeing all this for the first time as a piano-sized NASA spacecraft, called New Horizons, hurtles toward the distant celestial body on

New Horizons enters safe mode before Pluto flyby

A software glitch that triggered communication loss with NASA’s New Horizon spacecraft has been rectified and the probe is on way for a Pluto fly-by on July 14, the US space agency has said. The investigation into the anomaly that caused New Horizons to enter “safe mode” last weekend has concluded that no hardware or

NASA Spots More ‘Mysterious’ Bright Spots on Ceres

New images of Ceres from NASA’s Dawn spacecraft has provided more visible images of mysterious bright spots and also revealed a pyramid-shaped peak towering over a relatively flat landscape. Dawn has been studying the dwarf planet Ceres, the largest object in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, in detail from its second mapping
