Solving Space – NASA’s Space Launch System & Orion

Solving Space – NASA’s Space Launch System & Orion This fall, we are exploring how space inspires progress. Solve space today by unscrambling this image of NASA’s mighty Space Launch System (SLS). This powerful rocket will launch astronauts to the Moon for the Artemis lunar missions, paving the way for future deep space exploration. Next year, the uncrewed Artemis I mission will prove to be the ultimate test for NASA’s SLS and Orion spacecraft. Learn more about each of these modern marvels below. The SLS: NASA’s mightiest rocket With the Artemis generation comes a new, more powerful lunar rocket, the SLS. It’s NASA’s exploration class rocket, and it’s built to launch Artemis astronauts to the Moon, Mars, and beyond. It can lift heavier payloads and was desi...

New Artifact: Gene Kranz’s Mug

New Artifact: Gene Kranz’s Mug Travel though space history in our Starship Gallery timeline and see a new artifact – Gene Kranz’s Mug. Flight controllers gave this custom mug to Flight Director Gene Kanz after a flu outbreak among his Mission Control team in the mid-1960’s. They jokingly called him “Flu FD,” short for “flu flight director.” This personal item was on Kraz’s Mission Control console during the Apollo 11 & 13 missions. It’s currently on loan to the center from Catherine Colella in honor of Frances “Poppy” Northcutt, who was the first female engineer to work in Mission Control. Kranz’s legacy Gene Kranz is as legendary a figure at NASA Johnson Space Center as anyone, which is noteworthy since he never flew into space. His cool, decisive leadership kept his Mission Control ...

Watching Water in the West

Watching Water in the WestIf we could zoom waaaay out, we would see that galaxies and galaxy clusters make up large, fuzzy threads, like the strands of a giant cobweb. But we’ll work our way out to that. First let’s start at home and look at our planet’s different cosmic communities.Earth is one of eight planets — Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune — that orbit the Sun. But our solar system is more than just planets; it also has a lot of smaller objects.An asteroid belt circles the Sun between Mars and Jupiter. Beyond Neptune is a doughnut-shaped region of icy objects called the Kuiper Belt. This is where dwarf planets like Pluto and Makemake are found and is likely the source of short-period comets (like Haley’s comet), which orbit the Sun in less than 200 y...
