NASA’s electric engineer on her first mission to the moon, working on the design and construction of the International Space Station, is being congratulated by President Donald Trump.NASA’s electrical engineering team is working on building the International Life Support (ILS) module to keep astronauts alive on the orbiting lab.
It was a rare moment of bipartisan unity between the Trump administration and the space agency.NASA said the electrical engineer was working on design and building the ILS module.
It’s a key element of the new International Space System, which includes a crew capsule, a space station and a supply ship.
The engineer was tasked with designing a new liquid oxygen and liquid hydrogen capsule for use in a new generation of heavy-lift rockets called Space Launch System.
NASA is expected to test the capsule on the International Dateline Service (ICLSat) next year.
The ILS is the first fully reusable heavy-duty rocket for NASA, which was designed to take humans to Mars in 2023.
Its first flight is scheduled for 2019.
The space agency’s engineers are working on designing the next generation of spacecraft and other hardware for the International Lander Mission, or Lunar Lander, a NASA-led robotic mission to explore the moon and Mars.
The lunar rover will carry a rover that will collect samples and conduct science for years to come.NASA also is working with the European Space Agency on a space-based telescope.
The European Space Telescope (ESA) will observe the universe in unprecedented detail using infrared light, including ultraviolet and infrared light from stars.
The telescope will help astronomers learn more about the history of our galaxy, and how it formed.ESA said it was a significant milestone for the telescope because of the amount of data it can see.
The agency is also building the telescope for the next round of European astronomy missions, such as the Galileo and Herschel space observatories.NASA has been trying to get people off the planet to the space station for years, with an initial launch in 2024 scheduled for the space shuttle Atlantis.
The Space Launch Act of 2019 required the agency to get astronauts off the orbiting laboratory in 2020.
The bill also required NASA to conduct an extensive study of the ISS.NASA Administrator Scott Kelly said Wednesday that it’s a very difficult mission to make.NASA is working closely with other countries to ensure the next launch won’t be delayed, Kelly said.
But it’s also important that we are ready to fly again in 2024.
