Launcher's 3D-Printed E-2 Rocket Engine Achieves Full Thrust

Launcher's 3D-Printed E-2 Rocket Engine Achieves Full Thrust

Launcher's E-2 liquid rocket engine successfully demonstrated nominal thrust, pressure and oxidizer/fuel mixture ratio for the first time in a test fire at NASA Stennis Space Center. E-2 is a closed cycle 3D-printed, high-performance liquid rocket engine in development for the Launcher Light launch vehicle (inaugural launch scheduled for 2024). A single E-2 engine will boost Launcher Light to low Earth orbit with 150 kg of payload.

Holographic Doctor Visits the Space Station

Holographic Doctor Visits the Space Station

Holoportation is a type of capture technology that allows high-quality 3D models of people to be reconstructed, compressed and transmitted live anywhere in real time.. When combined with mixed reality displays such as HoloLens, it allows users to see, hear, and interact with remote participants in 3D as if they are actually present in the same physical space.

Kennedy Scientists Develop New Way to Plant, Nourish Seeds in Space

What started five years ago as a casual conversation among a small group at NASA's Kennedy Space Center recently showed results that one day may help feed astronauts on long-duration space missions. Plant researchers at the Florida spaceport had been chatting about new ways to plant crops in microgravity when they came up with the idea of a seed film.

A Record Broken: Hubble Finds the Most Distant Star Ever Seen

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has established an extraordinary new benchmark: detecting the light of a star that existed within the first billion years after the Universe's birth in the Big Bang — the most distant individual star ever seen. This sets up a major target for the NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope in its first year
