NASA's new administrator, Jim Bridenstine, says the agency is trying to get companies to form a consortium to take over the ISS.
Researchers develop flexible materials that switch from nano-porous 3-D to 2-D structures in a reversible way
Like Transformers, the living robotic beings that have the ability to change their bodies at will, scientists have now developed novel 3-D nano-porous materials that go through conformational changes and transform into a 2-D non-porous structures as a result of an external stimulus. They can then shift to the original 3-D nano-porous structure when the stimulus is reversed.
NASA astronauts must sculpt freakishly strong arms to work in space — here's how former space station commander Peggy Whitson trained
NASA astronauts have to maintain killer arm muscles to move and work in space.
They exercise for two hours per day on the International Space Station.
You can test your own interplanetary strength with a few of Astronaut Peggy Whitson's favorite training exercises.
NASA astronauts readily admit that being able to float in space is a pretty cool job perk.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
