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.
NASA EDGE visits Made in Space at NASA Ames Research Center to learn about Archinaut, a suite of capabilities for space manufacturing, robotic assembly, and verification and validation.
NASA EDGE visits Orbital ATK (now Northrop Grumman) to interview Lead Systems Engineer Dave Bodkin about the tools being developed for Commercial Infrastructure for Robotic Assembly and Services (CIRAS) and how these tools will potentially be used for missions in space.
NASA EDGE webcasts live from the Hot Pad at Vandenberg Air Force Base as the Orbital ATK Stargazer prepares to transport the Pegasus Rocket carrying the Ionospheric Connection Explorer (ICON) to its eventual launch destination, the Kwajalein Atoll.
NASA EDGE talks with Chief Engineer Andy Klesh about NASA's Mars Cubesat One A & B (MarCO), the first cubesat mission to the Red Planet.
NASA EDGE provides live coverage of tower rollback in preparation for NASA’s first launch to Mars from the West Coast.
NASA EDGE takes an in-depth look at the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) Mission just hours before launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Discover how NASA and its partners from MIT developed sophisticated cameras to capture a full sky survey of the most likely Earth-like planets outside our solar system.
NASA EDGE is joined in studio by David Richwine, Deputy Project Manager for Technology for the Low-Boom Flight Demonstration to discuss NASA's current effort to develop ground breaking aircraft design and promote regulatory change for commercial supersonic flight over land.
