    Research shows it’s ‘blind luck’ that asteroids haven’t destroyed a major city yet

    # 2014-04-18 05:50:08, BGR: The Three Biggest Letters In Tech
    Well, here’s something happy to think about as you head into the weekend. Phys.org brings us word that three former NASA astronauts are going to present new research next week showing that there have been 26 asteroid crashes since 2001 that have caused “atomic-bomb-scale explosions” that have ...

    OSIRIS-REx Wants to Lasso an Asteroid to Explain Life on Earth

    # 2014-04-15 05:40:00, Gizmodo
    NASA has a plan to better explore how our own local star system, and life within it, got started. It wants to intercept, study, and sample a passing asteroid. The only thing more impressive than this mission's astronomical level of precision is how the space agency somehow shoehorned "Origins Spect...

    The craziest NASA test ever is this giant supersonic Goldberg machine

    # 2014-04-10 03:42:00, Gizmodo
    NASA is sending new and bigger spaceships to Mars, which means they need bigger supersonic parachutes. So big, in fact, that they don't fit in any wind tunnel anymore, so their engineers had to find new ways to test them. New crazy ways. Really crazy. In fact, it's the craziest test they got so far....

    Hey look a weird bright light was spotted on Mars

    # 2014-04-08 17:56:00, Gizmodo
    Do you see it? There's a little beacon of light in the photograph of Mars above. It's on the left side of the photo and it's pretty darn bright. What could it be? More importantly, what do we want it to be? A Martian signal keeping track of the Curiosity rover? An alien laser beam? A key to a secret...

    The Human Heart May Not Be Able to Handle the Trip to Mars

    # 2014-03-31 12:20:00, Gizmodo
    Anyone dreaming of casting off the shackles of Earth for the microgravity wasteland of Mars is in for some (more) bad news. In addition to a host of other problems, the necessary 18-month spaceflight would, apparently, lead to one very unhealthy (and spherical) astronaut heart.Read more...

    The Inside Story of the Crazy Rocket Research at Jet Propulsion Labs

    Everybody knows the cowboy reputation associated with early astronauts, the test-pilot swagger immortalized by Apollo 13 and The Right Stuff. But the rockets that took those astronauts to space were built by a group with an equally cinematic image: the nearly-unhinged, completely unfettered mad scie...
