NASA’s Refueling Mission Completes Second Set of Robotic Tool Operations in Space

NASA’s Robotic Refueling Mission 3 (RRM3)has successfully completed its second set of robotic tool operations on the International Space Station, demonstrating key techniques for transferring cryogenic fluids, used as coolants, propellants, or for life support systems in orbit. These technologies have applications for extending spacecraft life and facilitating exploration to the Moon and Mars. Visual Inspection Poseable Invertebrate... Continue Reading →

Asteroid samples escaping from jammed NASA spacecraft

by Marcia Dunn via phys.org A NASA spacecraft is stuffed with so much asteroid rubble from this week's grab that it's jammed open and precious particles are drifting away in space, scientists said Friday. Scientists announced the news three days after the spacecraft named Osiris-Rex briefly touched asteroid Bennu, NASA's first attempt at such a mission. The... Continue Reading →
