  • Rover plus astronaut complete Mount Etna challenge
    on July 6, 2022 at 7:12 am

    In a complex role-played version of a mission to the Moon, controllers at ESOC combined with a team of geological scientists and ESA astronaut Thomas Reiter to oversee a rover’s collection of rock samples. Acting as if he were in lunar orbit, the astronaut was in fact based in a hotel room in Catania, Sicily, with the rover 23 km away and 2 600 m uphill on the volcanic flanks of Mount Etna. As Thomas commanded the rover to pick up rocks his hand experienced just what the robot’s gripper felt – an added dimension in remote control.

  • ESA brings sci-fi-inspired extended reality to space
    on June 22, 2022 at 10:30 am

    Virtual and augmented reality have increasingly been used for fun over the past few years. But in science fiction, these 'extended reality' (or XR) technologies are more than fun – they are actively used in character’s daily lives. Now with seven new projects boosting human-machine interfaces, ESA is aiming to bridge this gap and develop for space the XR applications we are familiar with from science fiction.

  • Space tech to be put to test on Asia-bound Fiat Panda
    on June 20, 2022 at 8:47 am

    Two ESA engineers are offering a unique testbed for novel space technology: a second-hand, two-decade-old Fiat Panda, set to be driven 16 000 km to compete in the Mongol Rally from Europe to the Mongolian steppes during summer 2023. Having already taken part in the Panda Raid race to Morocco and back, the ‘space2ground’ team plans to perform on-board testing over the course of their epic Asiatic drive.

  • Harvesting Data from the NASA STI Repository (NTRS)
    on March 25, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    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

    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 .
