A bunch of new rides for Artemis astronauts…
A few stories to tell you – this week at NASA!
Web Science celebrates first year with new film
On July 12, NASA celebrated the James Webb Space Telescope’s first year of science operations by releasing this new web image of the Rho Ophiuchi (OH-fee-yoo-kee) cloud complex — the star-forming region closest to us — and some. 390 light years away. Since the release of Webs First full color images In July 2022, the telescope discovered some of the oldest galaxies ever observed, providing the most detailed views of the atmospheres of planets outside our solar system and capturing new views of planets inside our solar system.
NASA to test humanoid robot in Australia
NASA and Western Australia’s Woodside Energy plan to use the NASA Valkyrie robot to test robotic remote operations at the company’s facilities. The collaboration will lead to improved operational safety and efficiency at the company’s offshore and remote installations. The initiative will also help NASA develop a remotely operated mobile robot capable of operating in conditions that are not ideal for humans — such as those that astronauts may encounter on future Artemis missions to the moon.
New vehicles for NASA’s Artemis crew
On July 11, Canoo Technologies, Inc. delivered specially designed, all-electric, environmentally friendly crew transport vehicles to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center. Zero-emission vehicles will transport astronauts from crew quarters at Kennedy to their rockets. The spacecraft at Launch Pad 39B ahead of the Artemis missions to the Moon.
Low-altitude flights study daily emissions
NASA Armstrong’s DC-8 aircraft are conducting a series of low-altitude flights over some of North America’s most densely populated areas as part of a cooperative effort. NOAA. The project’s name is an acronym for Atmospheric Emissions and Responses Monitored from Megacities to Marine Areas. It looks at how urban emissions and atmospheric chemicals from the use of everyday items such as personal care products and cleaning agents affect air quality and climate.
That’s @NASA this week
