NASA put the electronic brains of the Mars 2020 rover through a torture test

Building a robotic vehicle that will eventually travel to another planet is a complicated undertaking. With just one NASA rover, Curiosity, currently roaming around on Mars after the death of Opportunity, the much-hyped Mars 2020 mission takes on even more significance.Getting it right means testing, tweaking, testing, tweaking, and then testing some more, and NASA just published a new behind-the-scenes look at the intense trial process the rover's on-board computers have to endure. Tucked a...

NASA’s InSight lander still has a big problem, and nobody is quite sure how to fix it

One of NASA's most exciting ongoing missions is that of the InSight lander that currently calls Mars home. The robotic lander has the potential to teach scientists a great deal about the Red Planet and its history, but first NASA has to figure out what to do with one of its important, but underperforming, instruments.The tool, which is described as a "self-hammering mole" is designed to dig several meters into the planet in order to take temperature readings and paint a more complete picture...

Elon Musk just revealed 5 major updates to SpaceX's Mars spaceship project. Here's what we learned.

Elon Musk has confirmed that SpaceX hopes to try "very short" launches or "hops" of a new spaceship prototype in Texas this week. Called the "Test Hopper," the vehicle is a prototype of a more advanced, 400-foot-tall launch system called Starship, which SpaceX is designing to send people to Mars. Musk also shared critical updates about Starship's heat shield, test-launch plan, construction timeline, and more. When updates about SpaceX's plans rain from Elon Musk, they tend to pour. Such was ...

Elon Musk: SpaceX hopes to launch 'Test Hopper' — a prototype for a giant Mars rocket ship — for the first time this week

SpaceX has built a stainless-steel rocket ship at its launch site near Boca Chica Beach, located at the southern tip of Texas. "Test Hopper" is the first yet partly-functional prototype of Starship: a launch system that SpaceX founder Elon Musk hopes to use to send people to Mars. A sheriff hand-delivered road closure notices to residents on Friday, according to a local resident. The document warned locals that SpaceX will "conduct testing" as soon as Monday, March 18. SpaceX previously said i...

Dormant viruses activate during spaceflight

Herpes viruses reactivate in more than half of crew aboard Space Shuttle and International Space Station missions. While only a small proportion develop symptoms, virus reactivation rates increase with spaceflight duration and could present a significant health risk on missions to Mars and beyond.

Spinning Stars

The beautiful Pleiades is high in the west as night falls at this time of year. The star cluster looks like a tiny dipper. Right now, it stands above bright orange Mars by about the width of your fist held at arm's length. The cluster contains hundreds of stars. All of them were born at the same time, from the same cloud of gas and dust. That makes the Pleiades a great laboratory for studying how stars evolve. Since all of the stars were born from the same raw materials, any differences are the ...

The Opportunity Rover's Final Photo of Mars (slashdot)

pgmrdlm shares a report from CNN: Last May, Opportunity took a look around Perseverance Valley on the inner slope of Endurance Crater's western rim. The valley is about the length of two football fields and it's full of descending shallow troughs. Ironically, Perseverance Valley became Opportunity's final resting place when a planet-encircling dust storm took over Mars in June, blocking the sun from reaching the rover's solar panels. Engineers lost contact on June 10 and persistently sent more t...
