NASA Testing Lunar Chariot Vehicle For Moon

This is NASA’s Lunar Chariot, a six wheeled, all-wheel-drive, all-wheel-steering vehicle for the moon mission scheduled in 2020. It will be used to bulldoze roads, dig trenches, and drill for minerals on the moon thanks to its numerous attachments. Now I find this fascinating and all, and you know I love outerspace as much as

NextGen Supersonic Jets To Get Rid Of Boom

True to its aeronautic roots, NASA is evaluating a new generation of supersonic airplane designs to see whether they can reduce sonic-boom levels. Boeing and Lockheed Martin have submitted futuristic concepts that look similar to the Concorde, but aim to muffle the annoying and potentially damaging sonic boom problem. Airplanes flying faster than sound create

NASA Announces Final Dates For Last Two Shuttle Missions

Choking back a tear, NASA has announced the dates of the final missions to be made by the Space Shuttle. Discovery will lift off on November 1, for a 10-day mission carrying parts to the International Space Station. After that, February 26, 2011, will mark the last shuttle flight, as Endeavour takes the Alpha Magnetic

Top 10 Modern Robots

Looking at the recent developments in Robotics, its evident that these machines are going to form an integral part of our tomorrow. Here we take a look at the Top 10 modern robots. No 10. Martian Rovers In 2004, NASA landed twin exploration rovers on Mars named Spirit and Opportunity. These rovers are the most

Video: World’s Biggest Airship Inflated for the First Time

Airships of the future are getting a little closer to reality. A new time-lapse video shows the world’s largest airship being inflated in an Alabama cattle barn, and the ship’s manufacturer says it will be ready for test flights soon. It took six hours to inflate it, but the video is condensed to about two

NASA to Test World’s Fastest Hypersonic ScramJet this Month

In the last week of May, thousands of square miles of airspace above the Pacific Ocean will be cleared to make way for a skinny, shark-nosed aircraft called the X-51. The 4-metre-long prototype will drop from beneath the wing of a bomber and attempt to become the first scramjet to punch through the atmosphere at hypersonic

Top 10 NASA Fails

Today we take a look at the dimmer moments in its history: the canceled projects, the failures and some notable mishaps

NASA Design’s One Person Personal Aircraft

A super-quiet, hover-capable aircraft design, NASA’s experimental one-man Puffin could show just how much electric propulsion can transform our ideas of flight. It looks like nothing less than a flying suit or a jet pack with a cockpit.
