‘We are tiny’: Musk ribs Nasa’s Earth-Jupiter tweet

Replying to Nasa’s tweet about Jupiter’s massive size compared to Earth, Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX, which has partnered with the space agency for its Artemis mission, said: “We are tiny”.

The US-based agency tweeted: “Did you know that two Earths could fit inside Jupiter’s iconic Great Red Spot? The powerful storm is one of many colourful features we see in this image captured by our @NASAJuno spacecraft and processed by #CitizenScientist Kevin M. Gill.”

Aiming to land humans on the lunar surface by 2024, Nasa has selected 13 firms – including Blue Origin of Jeff Bezos and SpaceX of Elon Musk – to develop space technologies for its Artemis mission.

To facilitate the mission, Nasa centres would partner with the companies – ranging from small businesses with fewer than a dozen employees to large aero-space organisations – to provide expertise, facilities, hardware and software at no cost, the agency had earlier said.

“We’ve identified technology areas NAsa needs for future missions, and these public-private partnerships will accelerate their development so we can implement them faster,” said Jim Reuter, associate administrator of Nasa’s Space Technology Mission Directorate.

SpaceX is readying up to work with Nasa’s Kennedy Space Center to advance their technology to vertically land large rockets on the moon.

Washington: Replying to NASA’s tweet about Jupiter’s massive size as compared to Earth, Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX which has partnered with the space agency for its Artemis mission, has said: “We are tiny”.

The US-based agency on Saturday tweeted: “Did you know that two Earths could fit inside Jupiter’s iconic Great Red Spot? The powerful storm is one of many colourful features we see in this image captured by our @NASAJuno spacecraft and processed by #CitizenScientist Kevin M. Gill.”

SpaceX and Boeing Will Have To Wait For Approval From NASA

NASA seems to have wiped the August schedule off the board and changed it with a message that SpaceX and Boeing flight test dates for the …

In case you had August circled in your calendar to watch Boeing send its first Starliner to the International Space Station, you may be dissatisfied.

NASA seems to have wiped the August schedule off the board and changed it with a message that SpaceX and Boeing flight test dates for the Commercial Crew Programare now “under review.”

The two private corporations are both engaged on crew capsules designed to launch astronauts from US soil to the International Space Station. NASA has depended for years on Russian rockets and spacecraft to transport personnel.

NASA had been making an effort to supply more timely updates on flight test schedules. However, that strategy managed to highlight the delays. Space developments hardly ever happen on clean, linear timelines. Tests go wrong. Tools need changes. Delays are normal.

The Commercial Crew Program (CCP) has already seen its share of triumphs and stumbles. SpaceX easily and successfully accomplished its first uncrewed Demo-1 test flight to the ISS in March. However, a Crew Dragon capsule later exploded throughout a ground test in April.

“NASA and our partners need to fly astronauts as rapidly as we will without compromising the safety of our astronauts and at all times will give safety precedence over schedule,” NASA mentioned within the launch on Tuesday.

The space agency simply went via a vital leadership shakeup in July. Former astronaut Ken Bowersox took over because the administrator for the human exploration office, changing long-time leader William Gerstenmaier. NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine has directed the workplace to reexamine flight dates and “ship realistic schedule plans” as soon as the new leadership is in place.

NASA and SpaceX Will Work Together to Develop Space Refueling Technology

NASA has tapped Elon Musk’s SpaceX to determine a method to allow ships to refuel in orbit. The space agency introduced Tuesday.

According to a news release, SpaceX will assist in advancing propulsion technology — particularly, NASA has tasked SpaceX to resolve the issue of in-space refueling, which might be groundbreaking because it’s never been done before.

SpaceX may also work with the Kennedy Space Center in Florida within the development of the technology needed to land giant rockets on the surface of the moon vertically.

Thirteen corporations have been chosen for 19 partnerships with NASA to advance business space and future NASA missions.

“NASA’s proven experience and unique amenities are serving to commercial firms mature their technologies at an aggressive pace,” mentioned Jim Reuter, associate administrator of NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD), within the press release. “We’ve recognized technology areas NASA wants for future missions, and these public-private partnerships will speed up their improvement so we can implement them faster.”

The discharge stated that the partnerships and their focuses should be critical for NASA’s plan to land people on the moon by 2024. NASA hopes to use that moon mission as a stepping stone for a crewed mission to Mars.

There are seven particular focus areas that NASA divided corporations into. These include advanced communications, advanced materials, entry/descent/landing, in-space manufacturing and assembly, power, propulsion, and other exploration technologies.

Aside from SpaceX, other notable firms chosen for partnerships include Blue Origin, Maxar Technologies, Langley, and Lockheed Martin.
