Crew capsule accident is serious setback for SpaceX

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.  — SpaceX has suffered a serious setback in its effort to launch NASA astronauts into orbit this year, with the fiery loss of its first crew capsule during testing. Over the weekend, the Hawthorne-based company’s recently flown Dragon crew capsule was engulfed in smoke and flames on an engine test stand at Cape Canaveral. SpaceX was testing the Dragon’s abort thrusters when Saturday’s accident occurred. The company said the test area was clear and no one was injured. This ca...

NASA's 4-year twin experiment takes us closer to Mars than ever before

Twin astronauts Scott and Mark Kelly participated in a groundbreaking NASA study to uncover the long-term effects of space on the human body. Over nearly a year, the twins took the same medical tests — one while aboard the International Space Station and the other while back on Earth. The results, published this month, reveal that a year in space has considerable but not life-threatening impacts on the human body, offering hope that a longer-term journey to Mars is possible in the future.

Was Oumuamua an alien spaceship? No. Here’s what it is.

Oumuamua, a quarter-mile long asteroid tumbling through space, is Hawaiian for "scout", or "the first of many".It was given this name because it came from another solar system. Some claimed Oumuamua was an alien technology, but there's no actual evidence for that.

NASA's administrator lavishly praised an influential Evangelical ministry during its $10,000-a-table fundraiser. Some experts say his speech violated the Constitution.

NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine gave a speech in February at a Christian ministry's fundraising dinner, which advertised $10,000-a-table sponsorships. NASA said Bridenstine was approved to attend the event in his official capacity. Bridenstine expressed his support for the ministry and its mission, saying he likes the idea of "institutional" but not "influential" separation of church and state. Some government-ethics experts said Bridenstine's speech ran afoul of the First Amendment of the ...

Inside the world's largest plane, which has a wingspan longer than a football field and just made its first flight

The Stratolaunch is the world's largest aircraft. Its 385-foot wingspan is longer than a football field. The aircraft made its first flight on April 13. Visit BusinessInsider.com for more stories. The world's largest plane is so big that it needs two fuselages with separate cockpits. It's called the Stratolaunch, and it's designed to launch rockets into space in what is known as low-Earth orbit, which means the spacecraft is between 99 and 1,200 miles above the Earth's surface.

Game developers help NASA imagine what life in space will look like

NASA spent much of the 20th century commissioning painters and illustrators to imagine the future of space exploration. When Jeff Norris, the head of Mission Operations Innovation at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL), wanted a way to inspire a new generation of potential engineers, scientists, and astronauts, he turned to a modern alternative to those artists: a games developer. “They were looking for an artist’s take,” explains Jeff Lydell, an executive producer at the Vancouver-based game studio...

Meet the only NASA astronaut to climb Mount Everest

Scott Parazysnki is the only NASA astronaut who has both flown in space and successfully climbed to the summit of Mount Everest. Parazynski, 57, joined NASA as an astronaut in 1992. He flew on five Space Shuttle missions, and participated in seven spacewalks.  After his first attempt to reach the top of Everest was aborted in 2008 due to a back injury, Parazynski returned the next year, and was successful.  Italian astronaut Maurizio Cheli became the second person to both fly in space and summi...

NASA is paying SpaceX $69M to crash a rocket into an asteroid

NASA today awarded SpaceX a $69 million contract to redirect an asteroid off its intended path. The mission, called the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART), uses a technique known as a kinetic impactor. It involves sending one or more high-speed spacecraft into the path of an approaching near-earth object — in this case, an asteroid. If successful, the rocket would steer the asteroid away from the Earth’s orbital path, avoiding the need for an Armageddon sequel, presumably. NASA demonstrated...

The first-ever picture of a black hole is fuzzy. These incredible illustrations help explain what it shows.

Scientists on Wednesday published the first picture of a black hole, which was put together using the Event Horizon Telescope. The radio-wave photo shows a supermassive black hole, its event horizon, and accretion disk at the center of galaxy Messier 87. Researchers expected the image to look "fuzzy" but say it's nonetheless awesome and unprecedented. Computer models help explain why the image looks the way it does, and why it's so exciting.

'Like looking at the gates of Hell': Astronomers just revealed the first picture of a black hole, and it's a monster

The Event Horizon Telescope on Wednesday released the first picture of a black hole. The picture is somewhat fuzzy but shows the "shadow" of a black hole caused by its event horizon, or point of no return. Scientists from 40 nations spent roughly 13 years working to create the photo, which shows a supermassive black hole at the center of the Messier 87 galaxy. The black hole and its accretion disk, or orbiting ring of hot matter, is larger than the solar system. It's located about 53.4 million...

The first 'groundbreaking' pictures of a black hole may be unveiled on Wednesday. Here's what scientists think those images will look like.

The Event Horizon Telescope, which endeavors to photograph black holes, is making a "ground-breaking" announcement on Wednesday. Scientists expect the announcement will unveil the first-ever pictures of a black hole's "shadow" caused by its event horizon, or point-of-no-return for light. The images could be of the Milky Way's supermassive black hole, called Sagittarius A*, or an even larger black hole at the center of galaxy M87. Computer-simulated images offer a clue as to what to expect. Vis...
