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.
NASA EDGE continues their series at home with special guest Mic Woltman from NASA Launch Services Program at NASA Kennedy Space Center.
Operating safely from their homes, NASA Chief Scientist Jim Green along with Blair and Franklin from NASA EDGE discuss how NASA is continuing its mission during this unique time of telework and sheltering in place.
NASA EDGE provides live coverage of the Atlas V Rollout for ESA’s Solar Orbiter Mission. With ESA leading the effort on the Solar Orbiter, science is the real winner as both ESA and NASA continue the focus on Heliophysics missions.
NASA EDGE takes a close look at NASA Langley Research Center’s development of Navigation Doppler Lidar (NDL) to provide accurate, surface-relative altitude and vector velocity data to make sure NASA can land spacecraft safely on the Moon and any surface.
NASA EDGE sits down with Mike Ciannilli of the Apollo, Challeger, Columbia Lessons Learned Program (ACCLLP) to talk about NASA is using the tragedies of the past to make sure we improve our processes moving forward.
NASA EDGE moves between virtual and mixed reality while learning about the new focus for the Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission (MMS).
NASA EDGE provided live coverage of the scheduled tower rollback for United Launch Alliance’s final Delta II rocket carrying the ICESat-2 spacecraft.
NASA EDGE provided live coverage of the scheduled tower rollback for the Delta IV Heavy carrying the Parker Solar Probe just prior to launch from Space Launch Complex 37 at Cape Canaveral Air Station in Florida.
NASA EDGE interviews Dragonfly Program Manager Jennifer Dawson about the latest developments in robotic assembly in space, and how having this flexibility allows NASA and its partners to think differently about building and operating structures in space.
