  • Before explosion, NASA knew aging Soviet engines posed risks

    Before explosion, NASA knew aging Soviet engines posed risks
    Years before an unmanned rocket erupted in a fireball in October, NASA officials knew the metal in its 50-year-old Soviet-made engines could crack, causing fuel to leak and ignite, government documents show. As early as 2008, a NASA committee warned...
  • SpaceX shoots for supply launch to space station, unprecedented rocket landing on ocean barge

    SpaceX is making another supply run to the International Space Station for NASA. But it's the rocket's return — not its takeoff — that has space fans talking. Minutes after Tuesday morning's planned launch from Cape Canaveral, the first stage...
  • SpaceX plans to launch rocket, then land its engines on an ocean barge

    Entrepreneur Elon Musk's SpaceX is planning to launch a rocket early Tuesday that could ultimately be most notable for what happens as it returns to Earth. The rocket, scheduled for liftoff at 3:20 a.m. Pacific time from Cape Canaveral, Fla., will be...
  • SpaceX postpones rocket launch due to 'actuator drift' problem

    SpaceX postpones rocket launch due to 'actuator drift' problem
    SpaceX called off its early morning rocket launch to the International Space Station, citing a last minute malfunction. NASA said the SpaceX team had detected an “actuator drift,” causing the launch to be scrubbed. The next possible launch...

    SpaceX aborts rocket launch from Cape Canaveral
    KENNEDY SPACE CENTER – SpaceX scrubbed its Falcon 9 rocket launch from Cape Canaveral Space Station on Tuesday morning. NASA said the problem was with a thruster control on the second stage of the rocket. The private company is evaluating the...
  • SpaceX takes 2nd shot at launching supplies to space station, landing rocket on ocean barge

    SpaceX is taking another crack at delivering supplies to the International Space Station and landing the rocket on an ocean barge. The company's unmanned Falcon rocket is set to blast off before dawn Saturday from Cape Canaveral, Florida. On Tuesday,...
  • JPL scientist killed in Van Nuys plane crash aided 'extreme' exploration

    Alberto Enrique Behar dedicated his career to the idea that there was no place too hot, too cold or too remote for science. At NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Arizona State University, he developed robotic instruments that investigated...
  • NASA finds cause of rocket failure at Wallops Flight Facility

    NASA finds cause of rocket failure at Wallops Flight Facility
    Investigators have pinpointed the reason a suborbital sounding rocket fizzled just after launching from Wallops Flight Facility last summer on a mission to test suborbital rocket technologies, NASA said Monday. The space agency's Anomaly Investigation...
  • Ice researchers capture catastrophic Greenland melt

    Ice researchers capture catastrophic Greenland melt
    Over a few summer days in 2012, nearly all of the Greenland ice sheet surface thawed right under the feet of a UCLA-led team of scientists. What was not absorbed into snow quickly gathered and flowed across the 20,000-square-mile sheet, coalescing...
  • SpaceX launches rocket, but attempt to land booster falls short

    Elon Musk’s SpaceX sent a cargo capsule loaded with International Space Station supplies into orbit Saturday morning, but the company’s unprecedented attempt to set down the craft’s first-stage rocket on an ocean barge was rocky and...
  • Pilot killed in small plane crash was NASA scientist

    Pilot killed in small plane crash was NASA scientist
    The pilot of a small plane that crashed at a Los Angeles intersection was a NASA and Jet Propulsion Labs researcher who helped determine that there was once water on the surface of Mars, his colleagues said. Alberto Behar, 47, of Scottsdale, Arizona,...
