SpaceX will try again to launch internet satellites

Hawthorne-based SpaceX will make another attempt late Thursday, Aug. 6, to launch several dozen internet satellites into orbit, following a series of aborted efforts. The Falcon 9 rocket carrying the 57 Starlink satellites is scheduled to launch from Florida’s Cape Canaveral at 10:12 p.m. California time. SpaceX has tried three previous times to launch the satellites, but the missions have been delayed each time, either due to additional system checks or the weather in Florida. If Thursday night...

From fleeing Cambodia to helping build Mars rover, JPL engineer embodies ‘perseverance’

The bird-chirp alarm in Ny Sou Okon’s Pasadena home went off at 4 a.m. Thursday morning, July 30, signaling to her 8-year-old and 4-year-old sons that it was time to wake up. The day had come. The boys climbed out of bed and met their parents in the living room. Okon’s older son still squinted at the light. The family sat on the sofa and tuned into YouTube Live on the television above their fireplace. They set up a laptop on the coffee table, where Okon and her husband logged into a digital view...

NASA Launches New Rover, Perseverance, To Look For Ancient Life on Red Planet

NASA is heading back to the Red Planet. The agency launched a new rover, a car-size robotic explorer named Perseverance, to Mars on an ambitious mission to scour the planet for evidence of ancient life. From a report: The rover, which launched into orbit Thursday at 7:50 a.m. ET, is designed to study the geology and climate of Mars. NASA says the mission and its subsequent discoveries could lay the groundwork for eventual human exploration of the Red Planet. Perseverance is loaded with seven sci...

'Solar Orbiter' Delivers Closest Pictures Ever Taken of the Sun

"A European and NASA spacecraft has snapped the closest pictures ever taken of the sun," reports the Associated Press, "revealing countless little 'campfires" flaring everywhere. Scientists on Thursday released the first images taken by Solar Orbiter, launched from Cape Canaveral in February. The orbiter was about 48 million miles from the sun — about halfway between Earth and the sun — when it took the stunning high-resolution pictures last month...

Perseverance rover will include the first helicopter to fly on Mars

When NASA’s Perseverance rover lifts off from Cape Canaveral for its months-long journey to Mars, it will be packing a stowaway of sorts. Tucked securely in the craft’s underbelly will be Ingenuity, the first helicopter to fly on the red planet. Created in collaboration with Simi Valley-based AeroVironment Inc., the high-tech drone is the brainchild of Bob Balaram, a principal member of the Mobility and Robotics Systems Section at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and chief engineer on the projec...

Spacecraft snaps closest pictures of sun, 'campfires' abound

A European and NASA spacecraft has snapped the closest pictures ever taken of the sun, revealing countless little “campfires” flaring everywhere. Scientists on Thursday released the first images taken by Solar Orbiter, launched from Cape Canaveral in February. NASA’s Parker Solar Probe is flying much closer to the sun than Solar Orbiter — too close for cameras to safely photograph the sun.
