Latest Spacecraft propulsion Stories
Traveling to remote locations sometimes involves navigating through stop-and-go traffic, traversing long stretches of highway and maneuvering sharp turns and steep hills. The same can be said for guiding spacecraft to far-flung destinations in space. It isn’t always a straight shot.
NASA has tested 3D printed rocket parts, showing that the future is bright for the less-expensive methodology.
The UK government has announced plans to invest in the development of an air-breathing rocket engine – intended for a single-stage-to-orbit spaceplane – following the ESA-managed feasibility testing of essential technology.
NASA reports it has successfully tested the first-ever 3D printed rocket component, demonstrating a technology that could eventually lead to more efficient manufacturing of rocket engines.
Advanced Mobility and Specialty Vehicles announced today that they have delivered a one-of-a-kind, custom designed and constructed mobile testlab trailer for Lightcraft Technologies, Inc., headquartered
NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate's Flight Opportunities Program has selected 21 new space technology payloads for flights on commercial reusable launch vehicles, balloons, and a commercial parabolic aircraft.
Escape Velocity -- An escape velocity is the minimum speed at which an object without propulsion can move away from a source of a gravitational field indefinitely if there is no friction. This definition may need modification for the practical problem of two or more sources in some cases. In any case, the object is assumed to be a point with a mass that is negligible compared with that of the source of the field, usually an excellent approximation. It is commonly described as the speed...
