Recent events around NASA
THE ABOVE VIDEO: Data from space inform those who are fighting a fire in California, an American commercial supply mission is launched on the International Space Station and shows a power plant for NASA's Orion space … several stories that can be said – This week in NASA!
California Wildfires Mapped from Space
Satellites in space capture images and data about fires that still haunt California – including Woolsey Fire near Los Angeles and Camp Fire in Northern California. The Fire Camp, which began on November 8, became the most deadly fire in the history of the state.
It has also become the most devastating fire in California's history, with a huge number of structures destroyed by fire. Our Advanced imaging and analysis team used satellite data to create damage maps to help officials and first responders identify highly damaged areas and allocate resources as needed.
Cygnus Resupply A spaceship fires at the Space Station
On November 17, our trading partner Northrop Grumman fired his Cygnus spacecraft at the International Space Station as part of NASA's 10th commercial supply mission.
Cygnus, named SS John Young in honor of the deceased astronaut, fired from our Wallops air force in Virginia with about 7,400 pounds of research, crew equipment and crew equipment aboard the orbiting facility.
European service module Orion: Powering Exploration Mission-1
On November 16, at our Kennedy Space Flight Center in Florida, we presented a recently arrived service module for our Orion space probe – provided by ESA, the European Space Agency – and highlighted our history of cooperation and collaboration with ESA in the field of space exploration.
NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine:
"This is a momentous opportunity in which we will have the opportunity to fly into space, and the European service module is a huge element of this architecture."
The service module will power, drive and cool Orion while exploring Mission-1, his first unrealized flight test with our Space Launch System rocket.
The first group of restored historical mission control consoles delivered
The first group of restored Historic Mission Control consoles, which helped land people on the moon, arrived recently at Ellington Field in Houston, near our Johnson Space Center, and was unveiled before Apollo graduates, NASA personnel and the media. This event marks a milestone in the ongoing Historic Mission Control restaurant, the National Historic Landmark and its preservation for future explorers.
Expedition 58 of the crew undergo final training outside of Moscow
Expedition 58 – another crew of the International Space Station – conducted a qualification training in Russia in preparation for a flight to orbit. Our Anne McClain, Oleg Kononenko from Roscosmos and David Saint-Jacques from the Canadian Space Agency are invited to start on December 3 for a six-month mission at the station.
Silent supersonic flights 2018
We have begun research flights off the coast of Galveston, Texas to support the series of silent supersonic flights 2018. The design uses supersonic flying FA / 18 aircraft to test the community's response to the "silent impact" technique, designed to reduce loud sound storms typically associated with supersonic flight. The X-59 Quiet SuperSonic Technology X-plane developed by us will be able to demonstrate silent supersonic technologies in straight and horizontal flight over a larger area than F-A / 18.
