Mysterious chalkings have been reported throughout NASA Langley Research Center. The puzzling messages appeared overnight and urge employees to take bizarre actions, such as smile, dance through crosswalks and skip to work. Safety officials tested the chalk and have confirmed that it presents no problem to employees. Langley spokesperson Marny Skora says management encourages employees to take risks, noting that as one chalking indicates, "Every noble work is at first impossible."...

Almost 40 years have passed since July 20, 1969, when the lunar module "Eagle" carrying Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin gingerly made its way down to the Sea of Tranquility, landing humans on the moon for the first time. "From launch to splashdown, there was no aspect of the Apollo mission that scientists, engineers and technicians at NASA's Langley Research Center had not helped to develop in one way or another," said historian James R. Hansen, author of...

A full-scale model of the Mercury capsule was tested in the Langley 30- by 60-Foot Full-Scale Wind Tunnel. Managed at Langley Research Center, the objectives of the Mercury program were quite specific -- to orbit a crewed spacecraft around the Earth, to investigate the ability of humans to function in space and to recover both human and spacecraft safely. Project Mercury accomplished the first orbital flight made by an American, astronaut John Glenn. Credit: NASA
