NASA Finalizing List of Astronauts For the Artemis Moon Mission

NASA Finalizing , List of Astronauts For , the Artemis Moon Mission. The Byte reports that NASA's Artemis program, which aims to return humans to the moon, has already begun the selection process of assembling the mission's crew. For the first time in 50 years, NASA is planning a crewed orbital mission in 2024 and an actual moon landing in 2025. The Byte reports that the selection process is typically a clandestine operation, however, CNN was able to get an inside look through a series of interviews with NASA. . The mission crew is rumored to include Christina Koch and Jessica Meir, the first women to ever do an all-female space walk.

The internationally-funded mission will also include Canadian astronaut Jeremy Hansen. However, according to former astronaut Garrett Reisman, NASA's final selection process includes some surprising requirements. The problem is it can be influenced by trivial things, like what size spacesuit you wear. If there is only a medium and a large and you need the extra-large, you’re screwed. You’re not going to get assigned to the mission. , Garrett Reisman, Former NASA astronaut, via 'The Byte'. It can be crazy, little things that dictate how it all comes out and it’s not always the most equitable or transparent process, Garrett Reisman, Former NASA astronaut, via 'The Byte'

This Day in History: Challenger Disaster (Saturday, January 28th) [Video]

This Day in History: Challenger Disaster (Saturday, January 28th)

This Day in History:, Challenger Disaster. January 28, 1986. 73 seconds after its 11:38 a.m. launch, NASA's space shuttle exploded, killing all seven crew members. Among the crew was Christa McAuliffe, a 37-year-old high school social studies teacher from New Hampshire. McAuliffe had won a competition that earned her a place on the Challenger. Millions witnessed the tragedy on live television. In the aftermath, President Ronald Reagan appointed a special commission to determine what went wrong with Challenger. The investigation determined the disaster was caused by the failure of an “O-ring” seal due to cold weather. It would be two years before NASA sent astronauts into space again

NASA Says Incoming Asteroid Is About to Have a Close Encounter With Earth [Video]

NASA Says Incoming Asteroid Is About to Have a Close Encounter With Earth

NASA Says Incoming Asteroid Is, About to Have a Close Encounter With Earth. According to NASA, an asteroid currently hurtling toward Earth is expected to make one of the closest passes humanity has ever experienced. However, 'The Independent' reports that the object is expected to pass by safely. On the evening of January 26 or early on January 27, the asteroid is expected to make its closest approach. It is believed to be about 3.5 meters by 8.5 meters. The asteroid was only spotted days before it's scheduled to pass by Earth. Amateur astronomer Gennadiy Borisov discovered the asteroid on January 21. Once the asteroid was detected, NASA examined it with its Scout system, which is designed to predict the potential threat of collisions. Scout quickly ruled out 2023 BU as an impactor, but despite the very few observations, it was nonetheless able to predict that the asteroid would make an extraordinarily close approach with Earth, Davide Farnocchia, navigation engineer at JPL, via 'The Independent'. In fact, this is one of the closest approaches by a known near-Earth object ever recorded, Davide Farnocchia, navigation engineer at JPL, via 'The Independent'. 'The Independent' reports that the near miss will cause the Earth's gravity to significantly alter the orbit of the asteroid.

NASA's Future Crewed Mission to Mars Depends on Developing Nuclear Thermal Propulsion [Video]

NASA's Future Crewed Mission to Mars Depends on Developing Nuclear Thermal Propulsion

NASA's Future Crewed , Mission to Mars Depends on , Developing Nuclear Thermal Propulsion. Ars Technica reports that the United States announced its intention to develop a flyable nuclear thermal propulsion system nearly three years ago. The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) aim was to develop more responsive controls of spacecraft in Earth orbit, lunar orbit and in between. . The project is part of an effort to give the U.S. military greater operational freedom in space. . The operation has been dubbed the Demonstration Rocket for Agile Cislunar Operations, or DRACO project for short. Ars Technica reports that the program includes building both a nuclear fission reactor and a spacecraft to fly it. In 2021, General Atomics was awarded $22 million by DARPA to work on developing the reactor. Meanwhile, Lockheed Martin and Blue Origin were awarded an additional $5.4 million to develop the project's spacecraft system. . Meanwhile, Lockheed Martin and Blue Origin were awarded an additional $5.4 million to develop the project's spacecraft system. . According to a 2019 report, NASA's only hope for putting humans on Mars in the near future is by developing nuclear propulsion. Ars Technica reports that nuclear thermal propulsion requires significantly less fuel than other means of chemical propulsion. NASA will work with our long-term partner, DARPA, to develop and demonstrate advanced nuclear thermal propulsion technology as soon as 2027, Bill Nelson, NASA Administrator, via Ars Technica. With the help of this new technology, astronauts could journey to and from deep space faster than ever, a major capability to prepare for crewed missions to Mars, Bill Nelson, NASA Administrator, via Ars Technica.

Webb Telescope Sheds Light on the Early Universe

Webb Telescope , Sheds Light , on the Early Universe. Gizmodo reports that NASA's Webb Space Telescope has taken aim at the barred spiral galaxy EGS23205. . The distant galaxy will reportedly increase our understanding of the young universe and how the first stars and galaxies took form. Previously, NASA's Hubble Telescope also captured images of the galaxy. However, Webb's sharper images reveal a stellar bar reaching out from the galactic center. . The bars hardly visible in Hubble data just popped out in the JWST image, showing the tremendous power of JWST to see the underlying structure in galaxies, Shardha Jogee, astronomer at UT Austin and co-author of the research, via Gizmodo. A stellar bar is a massive galactic cross-section of countless stars, which plays a crucial role in galactic evolution. . They help to push gas toward the galaxy's center, fueling star formation and feeding the central supermassive black hole. . The Webb Telescope has been targeting some of the earliest galaxies ever seen, which appear as they were several hundred million years after the Big Bang. The images captured of EGS23205 are snapshots of the galaxy about 11 billion years ago. . In October, NASA's new $10 billion observatory captured images of the Pillars of Creation, massive plumes of dust and gas found in the Eagle Nebula. The same month, Webb produced an image of merging galaxies approximately 270 million light-years away from Earth.
