Since last week's groundbreaking ceremony workers have removed tree branches and have cut on the inside left and right tree lines to get the side ready for excavation. Installation of silt fencing environmental controls started inside and along the left tree line. Credit: NASA/Sean Smith

A picture-perfect day greeted employees, guests, contractor partners and elected officials who attended the Hydro Impact Basin Groundbreaking Ceremony at NASA Langley's Landing Impact and Research Facility, also known as the Gantry, Tuesday, June 8. The water basin will be 115 feet 35 m long, 90 feet 27.4 m wide and 20 feet 6.1 m deep and will be built at the west end of the Gantry, where Neil Armstrong trained for walking on the moon. The new facility will serve to validate and certify that...

High in the sky; that's the usual destination for an aircraft that called NASA Langley home for two months. A WB-57, operated by Johnson Space Center and normally based at Ellington Field in Houston, was here until late December installing and integrating a new payload. The WB-57 is one of only two kinds of aircraft in which crews can fly over 50,000 feet. The other is the U-2. ''We usually fly about 60,000 feet,'' (18,288 m) said Joe Gerky, WB-57 manager. ''That's a big advantage for testing...

Team members of the Landing and Descent Deceleration Earth Recovery System (LaDDERS) Advanced Development Project celebrated their Center Team Award Thursday, March 25, at the Track Lab in Building 1262. In 2006, the LaDDERS team formed to lead the development of the Orion landing system. In three years, the team conducted 117 landing impact tests and delivered 80 technical reports. The LaDDERS team accepted the award for technical excellence last month. ''This team has really cranked out a lot...

To build confidence in a design tool that could be used to analyze how the structural design of a spacecraft would be impacted during a water-landing scenario, engineers have been performing a series of subscale water drop tests at NASA Langley's Elemental Water Impact facility. Here, engineers prepare to drop a 20-inch (50.8 cm) hemisphere from five feet (1.5 m) into a four-foot (1.2 m) deep pool. This testing is part of a building block approach that will help engineers generate test data...

From Left to Right, NASA Knight team members Matt Reno, Chris Hunt, Mitchell Ferris, Dave Holloway, and Juliana Wu put the finishing touches on the robot they are building for the FIRST Robotics competition in Richmond March 18-20. With the help of NASA Langley Researcher Center, the NASA Knights team has participated in the competition for the past 13 years. The team has about 50 students from schools all over Hampton Roads, including homeschooled students. They gather in the new robotics lab...

Work continues on the fabrication of the Orion Crew Module KSC Ground Operations pathfinder in building 1232A at NASA Langley. The pathfinder will be shipped to Kennedy Space Center in September so ground operation crews there can practice lifting and moving it. The purpose of the pathfinder is to give crews experience in developing vehicle processing methods such as access, transportation, interfaces, clearances, and integration prior to working with the actual flight Orion Crew Module....
