Build a Moon Habitat! :: NASA's The Space Place - 0 views

  •  
    "You can be a Moon explorer too. Practice by building your own Moon habitat. Pretend you are an astronaut working with your team mates on the Moon to build your new home. Materials you will need to build one Moon habitat: 148 sheets of newspaper (use a paper with large pages-tabloid size is too small-and use the full square spread)"

A Librarian's Guide to Space Tourism - 32 Resources - OEDB.org - 1 views

  •  
    "Today, a Virgin Galactic ticket for a seat on board SpaceShipTwo will set you back $250,000 for a suborbital flight. So far nearly 600 people have put down deposits. Alternatively, XCor is offering suborbital flights aboard the Lynx for $95,000 per flight, including medical screening and G-Force training. And if you're looking for something more long-lasting, you might apply to become one of the first inhabitants of the Red Planet within a permanent human settlement on Mars planned for 2023."

NASA Piggybacks SmartPhone Satellites > ENGINEERING.com - 0 views

  •  
    ""Out of the box smartphones offer capabilities needed for satellites, including fast processors, versatile operating systems, multiple miniature sensors, high resolution cameras, GPS receivers and several radios," said NASA. Add to all of those components the fact that cellphones are built to take a beating, and you can see why NASA has faith in the fact that these "PhoneSats" could bring about a new era of cheap space and earth science."

Skylon Spaceplane | Interesting Engineering - 0 views

  •  
    "project to take the Skylon spaceplane into the orbit. During most of time it would be used as a normal airplane, like taking off and landing on conventional runways, but the main difference is in the power source of this aircraft. It will be powered by a Sabre engine, specially designed for its purpose. It will be working like a normal jet engine in the lower attitude, breathing in oxygen and when in higher altitude of outer space it will act as a rocket engine. So, we may call it some sort of a "hybrid engine"."

Video: A Retro-Sci-Fi Tour of Mars Rover Curiosity's Awesome Chemistry Lab | Popular Sc... - 0 views

  •  
    "As we approach the Mars rover Curiosity's landing Sunday night, we're having a lot of fun seeing all the promotions - there are all kinds of videos, museum exhibits and road shows to help explain what the newest interplanetary explorer will do. Below is a great new one from the American Chemical Society. Curiosity is a well-equipped geologist, traveling to Mars with a suite of tools to bake and pulverize rock, but it's also a trained chemist, capable of detecting the ingredients necessary for life as we know it. It's the first explorer to be able to do this. "
