The future of space travel: Imagine spacecraft with heat shields that could angle themselves slightly in different directions.
Is it possible to build “pure” spin launchers that fling spacecraft into orbit without the need for chemical rocket propulsion at any point?
For spacecraft, the heat in space is a much more challenging problem than the cold. It is very difficult to get rid of excess heat in space.
There are some great photos coming to us from space all the time—including just a few days ago from NASA’s Juno spacecraft at Jupiter—but there are some others that you have just got to see.

April 22 is not only Earth Day and part of National Park Week, but it also kicks off International Dark Sky Week.
Now is an exciting time to study space. Learn about the university’s powerful telescope that provides students the unique experience of using real-time telescope data for their research.
Geomagnetic storms causes the atmosphere to increase in temperature and density, which affects aerodynamic drag on satellites.
