  • Forecasting performance of a space antenna – before it gets built
    on January 26, 2022 at 8:29 am

    Antennas are among the most complex systems aboard a satellite – making them demanding to produce and often unpredictable to test. Tiny variables in their building, mounting or operation may impact their working performance in a big way. So ESA teamed up with Danish company TICRA to develop a method of forecasting such discrepancies well before an antenna construction even starts.

  • Wanted: recycling methods to keep astronauts alive
    on January 19, 2022 at 1:28 pm

    It took a crop of potatoes to keep Matt Damon alive on the red planet in The Martian. And in future, real life astronauts on the Moon and Mars will have to be gardeners, farmers and expert recyclers as well as explorers. Do you have promising ideas that might help them to get by in space on next to no resources?

    Harvesting Data from the NASA STI Repository (NTRS) The NASA Scientific and Technical Information (STI) Program is upgrading the NASA STI Repository (NTRS) launch to enhance discoverability of, and access to, NASA funded STI. The STI Repository promotes the dissemination of NASA STI to the widest audience possible by allowing information to be harvested. In support of these objectives, the upgraded repository has an OpenAPI to provide greater access to publicly available data and further flexibility for dissemination of NASA research results.

    For Developers NASA API’s launch makes NASA data, including imagery, eminently accessible to application developers. The NASA STI Repository OpenAPI is the recommended mechanism for access to NASA’s public collection of STI, and is available along with API documentation and guidance. What is STI? STI (scientific and technical information) is defined as a paper, abstract, journal article, presentation, etc. that contains and delivers the results (the analyses of the data, facts, and resulting conclusions) of basic and applied scientific, technical and related engineering research and development.

    The NASA STI Program The NASA Scientific and Technical Information (STI) Program is a critical component in the worldwide activity of scientific and technical aerospace research and development. The NASA STI Program acquires, processes, archives, announces, and disseminates NASA STI and acquires worldwide STI of critical importance to NASA and the Nation. Collected from U.S. and international sources, STI is organized according to content prior to being added to the NASA STI Repository (NTRS) launch .
