Blue Origin will upgrade New Shepard rocket with the ability to simulate lunar gravity

Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin will be providing NASA with a valuable scientific tool ahead of the U.S. space agency’s goal of returning to the Moon: The ability to run experiments in simulated lunar gravity much closer to home, in suborbital space. NASA revealed that Blue Origin will be modifying its reusable New Shepard sub-orbital launch vehicle to add Moon gravity approximation via rotation of the spacecraft’s capsule. That’ll effectively turn it into one big centrifuge, which will mean that object...

Unprecedented new video shows NASA's Osiris-Rex spacecraft landing on an asteroid and sucking up dust

NASA/Goddard/University of Arizona NASA's Osiris-Rex spacecraft landed on an asteroid to suck up a sample of rock and dust on Tuesday. New video footage shows the tricky operation, including the six seconds that it touched the asteroid's surface and blew nitrogen gas to send up a flurry of alien rock. Mission controllers must now determine if the spacecraft obtained enough sample to bring back to Earth. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. NASA landed a spacecraft on an ast...

A NASA spacecraft just landed on an asteroid and, hopefully, sucked up rocky dust to bring back to Earth. Here's how it worked.

An illustration of Osiris-Rex in orbit around the asteroid Bennu. NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center/Conceptual Image Lab NASA's Osiris-Rex spacecraft landed on an asteroid called Bennu and collected samples of its rock on Tuesday. The probe, which is the size of a 15-passenger van, maneuvered around hazardous boulder fields to reach its limited landing zone. If Osiris-Rex scooped up enough rock, the sample could help scientists learn how life arose on Earth. The mission could help NASA de...
