(BQ) Looking back at the creation and accelerated development of the early U.S. and former-Soviet "space race," ebook Scientific American: Great Moments in Space Exploration profiles the intrepid American astronauts and Russian cosmonauts who boldly ventured where none had gone before. It also offers current facts on the most recent developments in space technology, including those involving international cooperation among countries.
In January 2004, President George W. Bush announced new elements of the national space policy by issuing
the Vision for Space Exploration (VSE). The new policy set out goals for NASA, including that of exploring the
“solar system and beyond” with human and robotic missions—specifically, to “extend human presence across the
solar system, starting with a human return to the Moon by the year 2020.” In the year that followed, NASA created
the Exploration Systems Mission Directorate (ESMD) as the primary agent for the development of the exploration
Purpose: To engage students in the wonder of the science and engineering of space exploration. Standards
NCTE/IRA Standards for English Language Arts
Standard 5- Students employ a wide range of strategies as they write and use different writing process elements appropriately to communicate with different audiences for a variety of purposes. Standard 7- Students conduct research on issues and interests by generating ideas and questions, and by posing problems.
Astronomers have studied the heavens for more than two millennia, but in
the twentieth century, humankind ventured off planet Earth into the dark
vacuum void of space, forever changing our perspective of our home planet
and on our relationship to the universe in which we reside.
Our explorations of space—the final frontier in our niche in this solar
system—first with satellites, then robotic probes, and finally with humans,
have given rise to an extensive space industry that has a major influence on
the economy and on our lives. In 1998, U.S.

The Deep Space Communications and Navigation Systems Center of
Excellence (DESCANSO) was established in 1998 by the National Aeronautics
and Space Administration (NASA) at the California Institute of Technology’s
Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). DESCANSO is chartered to harness and
promote excellence and innovation to meet the communications and navigation
needs of future deep-space exploration.
Modern embedded systems come with contradictory design constraints. On one hand, these systems often target mass production and battery-based devices, and therefore should be cheap and power efficient. On the other hand, they still need to show high (sometimes real-time) performance, and often support multiple applications and standards which requires high programmability.
Inquiring on the sky (i.e., the Universe) has been present as affair of concern of the
human kind since the early days of the first hominids like homo floresiensis and late
homo sapiens. Fascination of sky watchers on a starry night, with its planets and the
Moon, still today invites the best human minds to struggle for unveiling its secrets.
To extending farther out the reach of our eyes, the telescope was introduced to
astronomy in 1609 by Galileo Galilei.
From John Glenn s mission to orbit Earth to the
International Space Station program, space food
research has met the challenge of providing food
that tastes good and travels well in space. To better understand
this process, we can look back through history.
Explorers have always had to face the problem of how to
carry enough food for their journeys. Whether those
explorers are onboard a sailing ship or on the Space
Shuttle, adequate storage space has been a problem.
In 140 A.D. a Greek astronomer
named Ptolemy wrote that the
Earth was the center of the
universe. He thought all the stars,
the Sun, and the Moon revolved
around it. This made sense
because that is how things looked
in the sky from Earth. We call
Ptolemy’s theory the geocentric
view. It is derived from geo (Earth)
and centric (center). Astronomers
believed the geocentric view for
1,500 years until 1543.
The Heliocentric View
About 500 years ago,
Copernicus found that the Earth
and other planets revolve around
the Sun. His theory was published
In 2003, the National Research Council (NRC) published the first decadal strategy for solar and
space physics: The Sun to the Earth—and Beyond: A Decadal Research Strategy in Solar and Space
Physics.1 That report included a recommended suite of NASA missions that were ordered by priority,
presented in an appropriate sequence, and selected to fit within the expected resource profile for the next
What can you measure and what are your limits when orbiting in space? Learn about what physical quantities you can measure and what types of sensors you can buy or build. We cover the 5 essential design limits as well: power, bandwidth, resolution, computing... and legal limitations. Explore what you can play with using your own personal satellite.
Humans have been exploring their world for thousands
of years. People love to discover and learn about new
places. Some of today's explorers are making exciting
new discoveries in space.
Many objects are found in the universe. These
include asteroids, planets, moons, comets, and stars.
Astronomers are scientists who study the objects in
space. People who travel to space to learn about it
are called astronauts.
George Griffith (full name George Chetwyn Griffith-Jones;
(1857–1906)) was a prolific British science fiction writer and noted explorer
who wrote during the late Victorian and Edwardian age. Many of
his visionary tales appeared in magazines such as Pearson's Magazine
and Pearson's Weekly before being published as novels. Griffith was extremely
popular in the United Kingdom, though he failed to find similar
acclaim in the United States, in part due to his revolutionary and socialist
