Named an effective way to turn Mars into Earth

Researchers at Harvard University, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and the University of Edinburgh have identified a way in which individual regions on Mars can be made habitable. This may be the first stage of the terraforming of the Red Planet. This was reported in a press release on Phys.org. According to experts, it is possible […]

SpaceX called the cause of the explosion Crew Dragon

The cause of the explosion on the Crew Dragon manned spacecraft on April 20 during ground tests was the failure of the non-return valve of the propellant helium propulsion system, SpaceX reports.

SpaceX Martian ship burned

The prototype of Starship, an American company SpaceX, known as Starhopper, caught fire during a static fire test of the Raptor rocket engine. The corresponding video was posted on Twitter by NASASpaceFlight.com managing editor Chris Bergin. As reported in the publication of the American portal, initially testing Starhopper assumed two inclusion Raptor. During the first, […]

Named the condition for the successful exploration of Mars

Scientists at Harvard University (USA) found that resveratrol, contained in red wine, prevents muscle loss in rats that lived under the reduced gravity characteristic of Mars. This substance will help to cope with the adverse effects of microgravity on the colonists. This was reported in a press release on Phys.org. To simulate the attraction on […]

Boeing accused of US space degradation

The American company Boeing deliberately restrained the development of near-Earth orbit refueling technology, currently considered the most promising for deep space exploration, writes ArsTechnica. The publication drew attention to the tweet of physicist George Sowers, who several years ago led a research team at the United Launch Alliance (ULA) consortium, a joint venture between Boeing […]

Roscosmos after SpaceX lowered prices

Roscosmos has reduced the cost of launching one kilogram of payload into Earth orbit by the Soyuz-2 medium rocket by almost half, RIA Novosti reports. “The cost of launching spacecraft in the 3U cubesat format (with sides of 10 by 10 by 30 centimeters) will be 170 thousand dollars. As part of the launch of […]

Signs of a monstrous catastrophe found on Mars

An international team of scientists discovered signs of a giant tsunami that happened on Mars billions of years ago when an asteroid fell. Due to a collision with a celestial body, the Martian crater of Lomonosov arose. This was reported in a press release on Phys.org. Planetologists have discovered geological formations, which in their structure […]

"Roskosmos" boasted a "nuclear tug"

Within the framework of the state program “Space Activities of Russia for 2013-2020”, design documentation was developed, a number of components of the prototype of the ground prototype of the transport and energy module (TEM) based on a megawatt-class nuclear power propulsion system (“nuclear tug”) were manufactured and autonomously tested, it is reported in the […]
