Our resident expert on Entry, Descent, and Landing (EDL) narrows her focus on the lunar landing with Stereo Camera for Lunar Plume Surface Studies (SCALPSS).
If you need to capture highly technical imagery of your spacecraft as it reenters the Earth’s atmosphere, look no further than CJ (Carey Scott) and the SCIFLI team at NASA Langley Research Center.
On November 20th, 2020, NASA EDGE provided live prelaunch coverage of the Sentinel-6 Mike Freilich Satellite on L-1.
Netflix’s new documentary on the Space Shuttle Challenger has caused a lot of reflection and discussion about the tragedy.
Not many people can accurately claim to have driving experience on multiple planets, but Keri Bean can!
NASA EDGE continues to look at NASA’s Safe and Precise Landing – Integrated Capabilities Evolution (SPLICE) technology suite.
Technologies to enable exact and soft landings on the Moon and other worlds will fly on Blue Origin’s next New Shepard suborbital rocket launch.
To really understand the geology of the Moon, you need to dig. NASA’s very first lunar rover, VIPER, is designed to do just that.
On July 28th, 2020, NASA EDGE provided live coverage of the Mars 2020 Rollout just days ahead of the launch.
NASA EDGE takes a look at two technologies related to Space exploration, the Lunar Surface Manipulation System (LSMS) and In Space Assembly.
When it comes to space exploration, it is vitally important to stick the landing! NASA Systems Capability Lead for Entry, Descent, and Landing (EDL) Michelle Munk joins the show to talk about his challenging process. Check it out!
NASA Swamp Works Senior Technologist Rob Mueller joins the show to talk about the innovation needed as NASA plans its return to the Moon.
Lowering the sonic boom with the X-59 still requires a high performance engine, and Franklin, from NASA EDGE, talked with Deputy Propulsion Lead for X-59 QueSST Paul Dees about NASA’s recent engine tests as they continue to develop this uniquely quiet x-plane. Check it out!
NASA EDGE chats with NASA Deputy for the Launch Vehicle Office for Commercial Crew Steve Gaddis about the successful launch of DM-2 and future missions for NASA Commercial Crew!
Senior Aerospace Technologist Bob Moses joins the show to talk about how NASA plans to keep astronauts safe while living and working on the lunar surface.
Join NASA EDGE as Chris and Lunar Architecture guru Pat Troutman talk about the challenge of designing NASA’s first sustainable lunar outpost for Artemis.
Capturing visual data from a spacecraft travelling at 17,000 plus miles per hour from a safe distance is a big challenge, and that is exactly what Jennifer Inman and the SCIFLI team do when spacecraft return to Earth.
You need more than household cleaner to tackle the dust problem on the lunar surface, and NASA Researcher Chris Wohl discusses the many strategies being developed by NASA to keep our equipment and astronauts safe while working on the Moon.
Franklin checks in with NASA’s Division Chief of Heliophysics, Nicky Fox, to find out how current solar missions for NASA and ESA are providing profound new insight and data about our Sun.
Power is a big part of every NASA mission, and Artemis is no exception. Chuck Taylor, from the Space Technology and Exploration Directorate at NASA Langley Research Center, joins the show to talk about how NASA is investigating and developing plans to provide power to all assets heading to the lunar surface.
