In 2014, NASA made huge strides regarding the agency’s trip to Mars by testing front line innovations and making scientific findings, all while examining our evolving planet and the vast universe as the organization worked on next generation technologies for space travelling
NASA executive, Charles Bolden stated in a press release that the agency has granted contracts to American companies to re- launch human crewed space missions in the U.S. He also mentioned the progresses recorded in space engineering and Orion first successful flight which will be the following deep space exploration air shuttle used by astronauts. The official boasted about the agency’s endeavors to make more its aircrafts more environmental friendly and to develop technical innovations for a more effective space travel.
NASA accomplished a significant breakthrough in December on its voyage to Mars as the Orion space mission ended its first four-and-a-half-hour trip to space. Orion is a key element in NASA’s plan to create new tech capabilities which will send space travelers deeper than ever in universe, first to a space rock, and after that to Mars.
The other path settled by NASA regarding crewed space missions also took a giant step in September when the organization published said that U.S. space explorers would restart to set out to and from the International Space Station (ISS) from the United States on American shuttle under notable contracts established by NASA’s Commercial Crew Program.
NASA’s voyage to Mars incorporates time on board at the International Space Station (ISS). The office is utilizing the space station to carry top of the notch research and engineering improvement and to gain more insight about what living and working in space for long stretches of time involves. This year was the fourteenth one with constant human crew on the orbiting research facility. Admitting the long haul advantages of the space station, the Obama Administration said in January it plans to supplement operations on the ISS until 2024. This year, 13 astronauts stayed and worked on ISS.
As space exploration depends greatly on technology, a huge part of NASA’s activities focused on developing better devices. In June the organization tested the technologies required for substantial payloads landing on Mars with the help of the Low Density Supersonic Decelerator. The machine is a rocket-controlled, saucer-molded vehicle.
Apart from outer space endeavors, NASA also took important steps in analyzing Earth. Executive Bolden proclaimed 2014 Earth’s year on the grounds that without precedent for more than 10 years, five NASA Earth Science missions were booked to be dispatched. Together with NASA’s current armada of satellites, aerial missions, and scientists, these new missions will aid solving some of the most important difficulties our planet faces. Among them there are included environmental change, ocean level climb, freshwater, and severe weather conditions.
Another NASA achievement was the completion of a hybrid wing body for testing cutting edge airplane designs in NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia. A significant part of the test piece is made out of a light-weight, damage adapted, sewed composite structural concept entitled Pultruded Rod Stitched Efficient Unitized Structure (PRSEUS). A powerful wing body could, at the same time, diminish fuel utilization, commotion levels and the emissions cast by future cargo planes.
