Strapped in the seats of a SpaceX crew capsule, a retired NASA astronaut and three wealthy paying passengers rocketed into orbit Friday from the Kennedy Space Center on the first fully commercial mission to the International Space Station.
SpaceX rolled a Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon capsule to their launch pad Tuesday and test-fired the booster's engines Wednesday at the Kennedy Space Center, setting up for launch Friday of four private space fliers on a 10-day mission to the International Space Station.
Demonstration tests underway in Prague using sustainable fuels have provided initial insights to the joint teams of CVUT, GE and Avio Aero, who are now aiming to run with 100% SAF. A little over two months passed since last November, when GE Aviation Turboprop and the Czech Technical University in Prague CVUT started […]
The number of satellites circling the earth has skyrocketed in recent years. In 1959 the number was only two but today there are over three thousand active satellites, and that is just the beginning. Private companies are scrambling to conquer space at a rapid pace. SpaceX’s Starlink project alone has the permission to put 12000 […]
The launch of the first all-private crew to the International Space Station has been delayed to Friday, officials announced late Monday. The four commercial space fliers will ride to the station on a SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft.
STMicroelectronics RHRDAC121 radiation-hardened digital-to-analogue converter (DAC) operates down to 2.5V for use in modern, low-power system designs that older 3.3V parts cannot support. Consuming just 0.6mW at its maximum speed and supply voltage, the 12-bit 1Msps successive-approximation register (SAR) DAC helps reduce size, weight, and power (SWaP) in next-generation satellites. Typically used in circuits for telemetry, housekeeping, […]
Catalyst – 100% European development without any US licenses. Ecologically more effective thanks to 20% lower consumption and 10% higher power. This means three more hours of time in the air, which can be decisive in various defense actions and even save lives. Within a few weeks, Airbus Defense and Space will have […]
