Consequences of space exploration

Editor s Note: This is the ninth in a series of essays on exploration by NASA s Chief Historian, Steven J. Dick. As controversies swirl about funding, resources, motives and methods for spaceflight, it is well to consider the consequences of exploring space – and of choosing not to do so. Earlier essays have already analyzed in broad terms some of the potential…

Reasons to explore space

Scientist-Astronaut Harrison H. Schmitt, Apollo 17. (NASA) I am convinced that if NASA were to disappear tomorrow, if we never put up another Hubble Space Telescope, never put another human being in space, people in this country would be profoundly distraught. Americans would feel that we had lost something that matters, that our best days were behind us, and…

Why We Should We explore space?

Anyone who s found themselves beneath a spectacularly starry night sky has to wonder what s out there.

SpaceX exploration Technologies stock

Sorry, folks. Although Tesla and SolarCity have roared in 2013, Elon Musk has no plans to take SpaceX to the public markets. There are plenty of reasons it doesn t really make sense to go public, anyway. The company has a time horizon well beyond the quarterly measuring stick carried by most financial analysts. Launch delayed? There goes the quarter! Besides…

Space exploration Telescopes

The Hubble Space Telescope was designed to free astronomers of a limitation that has plagued them since the days of Galileo—Earth s atmosphere. Shifting air pockets in the atmosphere block and distort light, limiting the view from even the most powerful Earth-bound instruments. Orbital telescopes function as eyes in the sky that allow astronomers to peer farther…

Space exploration Software

In the Human Interfaces Group at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, we build software for people, just like you probably do. Admittedly, some aspects of our work are a little unusual. We believe in user centered design, evidence over opinion, and the importance of learning quickly through sketches and prototypes. We assume we don’t have the perfect idea right at…
