While the triumphs of Chandrayaan-3 and Aditya-L1 missions echo globally, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) faces an unexpected challenge—combating sea erosion at its revered spaceport in Sriharikota. In the last four years, the island has lost 100 meters of coastline, prompting urgent mitigation efforts.
NASA's 29th SpaceX commercial resupply services (CRS) mission is set to deliver a host of scientific experiments and technology demonstrations to the International Space Station (ISS). These studies aim to enhance our understanding of various aspects of space science and technology. Here are some of the key experiments aboard this mission:
Frank Rubio, currently on a year-long mission aboard the International Space Station (ISS), has achieved a remarkable milestone in space exploration. Today,...
In a significant announcement, Prime Minister Narendra Modi declared August 23 as 'National Space Day', a day that holds immense importance in India's space exploration journey. This date marks the momentous occasion when Chandrayaan, India's lunar mission, executed a soft landing on the moon. Additionally, PM Modi designated the landing site of the Vikram lander on the lunar surface as the 'Shiv Shakti' point.
In a momentous move towards strengthening India's space sector and encouraging private industry participation, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has transferred its state-of-the-art IMS-1 Satellite Bus Technology to Alpha Design Technologies Pvt. Ltd.
About seven out of ten Americans believe that the United States must continue to maintain its position as a global leader in space exploration, with both Republicans and Democrats supporting this view. Over 50 years ago, the space race between the U.S. and the former Soviet Union captivated the world. However, as more countries like India and China pursue their space exploration goals, the U.S. faces new challenges in maintaining its leadership.
Pulsar Fusion is constructing the largest fusion rocket engine to demonstrate the potential of nuclear fusion propulsion in revolutionizing space travel. With the ability to generate ultra-high temperatures and pressures, this technology aims to halve travel times to Mars and significantly shorten journeys to distant celestial bodies. By leveraging machine-learning algorithms, scientists are working to stabilize and control the super-hot plasma necessary for fusion. If successful, this propulsion system could achieve speeds of 500,000 miles per hour and unlock new possibilities for space exploration.
Chandrayaan-3, the follow-on mission to Chandrayaan-2, is scheduled for launch from Sriharikota, marking India's journey to become the fourth country to achieve a soft landing on the moon's surface. Union Minister Jitendra Singh highlights India's rise in space expertise and collaborations with other nations. The mission aims to demonstrate India's capability in safe landing, rover exploration, and in-situ scientific experiments on the lunar surface. The spacecraft will utilize the Launch Vehicle Mark-3 developed by ISRO.
Is it absurd to think of sending a wooden satellite into space? Though wood is not considered as durable as metal, an experiment shows wood is surprisingly sturdy in outer space. This prompted a group of researchers to put the first wooden satellite into space and they would probably launch in in 2024, if things go well.
China on May 30 achieved a historic milestone in its space program by sending its first civilian astronaut to space. Gui Haichao, a professor at the Beihang University in Beijing regarded as a payload specialist, joined two military astronauts on the Shenzhou-16 spacecraft that blasted off from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre in northwestern China at 9:31 a.m. local time.
