NASA will test out new space exploration technology – including some used for asteroid landings – by having its teams live on the ocean floor off Florida coast for extended periods of time in two upcoming summer missions.
A NASA scientist and a renowned graphic artist have teamed up to produce designs for a vessel that may someday allow human beings to travel the universe and beyond in a first-of-its-kind warp drive spacecraft faster than light.
A Texas observatory has captured a powerful gamma-ray burst – the violent death of a massive star – that happened relatively “soon’” after the Big Bang. Understanding such hard-to-spot events gives us insight into how the early universe developed.
NASA has unveiled 12 futuristic concepts it has selected for study under its NIAC program, which seeks breakthrough technologies that will change space exploration in the future. Among them: a submarine which will explore Saturn’s Moon Titan.
