On Wednesday, NASA issued a request for proposals for concept definition and requirements analysis support for the Altair lunar lander. Proposals are due to NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston by 2 p.m. CST on Feb. 27. NASA's Constellation Program will use Altair to land four astronauts on the moon following launch aboard an Ares V rocket and rendezvous in low Earth orbit with the Orion crew vehicle. The lunar lander will provide the astronauts with life support and a base for weeklong...

In the game of astronomy, size matters. To get crisp, clear images of things billions of light years away, a telescope needs to be big. "The bigger the better," says astronomer Harley Thronson, who leads advanced concept studies in astronomy at the Goddard Space Flight Center. And he thinks "NASA's new Ares V rocket is going to completely change the rules of the game." Ares V is the rocket that will deliver NASA's next manned lunar lander to the moon as well as all the cargo needed for a...

U.S. military rockets can send astronauts safely to the moon sooner and for billions of dollars less than NASA's troubled Ares I rocket, documents suggest. The documents, obtained by the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel, were presented to the transition team of President-elect Barack Obama three weeks ago. They say upgraded Atlas V and Delta IV rockets could be built and ready for astronauts to ride by 2013 -- two years earlier than Ares I -- and for up to $3.4 billion less than Ares's projected $10...

tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
