Space Shuttle

Still in its protective shrink wrap, space shuttle Atlantis has been raised and tilted into display position at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. Atlantis starred in a daylong parade and celebration as the shuttle was moved into an exhibit hall at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. The storied spacecraft's pair of 60-foot-long doors were closed Sept. 20 during preps for permanent display. NASA's Shuttle Carrier Aircraft pilots will carry Endeavour to its new home in Los Angeles.

Moon Base Possible through Lava Tubes. Scientists and theorists had come up with many ideas to open up a functional base on the moon but the issue of radiation outweighs the possibilities.

Moon Base Possible through Lava Tubes

Scientists have recently discovered lava tubes where a base could be safely constructed. In volcanic tubes are now considered to be safe and ideal sites for settling in. Open Space Agency. Why are there dozens of dead animals floating in space? On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first man in history to step on the surface of the moon.

Why are there dozens of dead animals floating in space?

Millions of people tuned in to a broadcast of the event, and after Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin Jr. joined Armstrong, the two spent about two and a half hours gathering lunar rocks to bring back for analysis. The success was a triumph, not just for the United States, but for mankind, the imagination and the possibilities of exploration. What many people don't know, however, are the special sacrifices that had to be made in order to get astronauts up into space at all. The major unsung heroes of space exploration, it turns out, are animals. Before space programs started sending people up into orbit, scientists couldn't agree on what it would be like for a living organism to leave Earth's atmosphere. Mars One.

The Space Race. By the mid-1950s, the U.S.

The Space Race

-Soviet Cold War had worked its way into the fabric of everyday life in both countries, fueled by the arms race and the growing threat of nuclear weapons, wide-ranging espionage and counter-espionage between the two countries, war in Korea and a clash of words and ideas carried out in the media. These tensions would continue throughout the space race, exacerbated by such events as the construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961, the Cuban missile crisis of 1962 and the outbreak of war in Southeast Asia. Space exploration served as another dramatic arena for Cold War competition. On October 4, 1957, a Soviet R-7 intercontinental ballistic missile launched Sputnik (Russian for “traveler”), the world’s first artificial satellite and the first man-made object to be placed into the Earth’s orbit. Sputnik’s launch came as a surprise, and not a pleasant one, to most Americans.

Leo Space Telescope

It will provide the company with the core spacecraft technologies necessary for asteroid prospecting while creating the first space telescope within reach of the private citizen. The ARKYD contains the critical structures, avionics, attitude determination and control, and instrumentation that enable low-cost asteroid exploration. The ARKYD 100 Space Telescope provides spectacular views of the Earth’s surface and deep space, including the rich, virtually unexplored areas between our planet and the Sun. Central to its configuration and functionality is a precision imaging system. With arc-second resolution, the ARKYD 100 spacecraft camera will provide detailed celestial and Earth observations where you want them, and when you want them. ESA/Hubble.
