Linde will supply NASA with approximately 360,000 tons of liquid nitrogen and 64,000 tons of liquid oxygen to support the operations of six research and space flight centers across the U.S. The company said Monday the agency uses nitrogen for pressurization, purging, inerting and pneumatic actuation, while oxygen is used as oxidizer for cryogenic rocket engines. The research and space […] More
Orbital Sciences and NASA‘s Jet Propulsion Laboratory have commenced in-orbit testing for a satellite the company built to monitor atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide. The Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 spacecraft has reached its target orbit nearly an hour after it lifted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base aboard a Delta II rocket Wednesday morning, Orbital said […] More
A spacecraft Orbital Sciences built for NASA is set to blast off Tuesday morning on a two-year mission to measure carbon dioxide levels in Earth’s atmoshphere. Orbital Sciences will launch the Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 satellite aboard a Delta II rocket Tuesday at 2:56 a.m. Pacific Time from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, the company […] More
A team comprised of Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. and Aerojet Rocketdyne has tested a thruster with “green” fuel technology in a space lab environment as part of NASA‘s Green Propellant Infusion Mission program. The project’s goal is to demonstrate the AF-M315E eco-friendly propulsion system as an alternative for the toxic hydrazine fuel used on […] More
NASA powered up the Space Launch System for the first time Thursday to demonstrate the rocket's flight avionics and software, both of which were developed by Boeing. The SLS reached first light status after the electronic flight guidance and manager was integrated into the launch vehicle at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama, NASA said […] More
