NASA's Robotic Lunar Lander Development Project at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., completed an initial series of integrated tests on a new lander prototype. The prototype lander will lead to the development of a new generation of small, smart, versatile robotic landers to achieve scientific and exploration goals on the surface of the moon and near-Earth asteroids.

NASA's Robotic Lander Development Project at Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. conducts the second free-flight test of a robotic lander prototype. During test the lander successfully executed its planned flight profile, autonomously ascending to a six-foot hover and descending to conduct a controlled soft landing.

The author/director of this creative piece is Paul Gradl who works on the J-2X development effort. A superb engineer with a technical background in combustion devices design and analysis, he came up with the notion of stringing together the J-2X development process starting with conceptual design, then detailed design and analysis, through fabrication and assembly, and finally into full-scale hot-fire testing. The result is truly excellent.

Vigilant sky watchers were treated to a fiery surprise in western Alabama sky on Friday, March 19. Allsky meteor cameras at the Marshall Center and near Chickamauga, Ga., recorded a fireball streaking across the sky around 11:19 p.m. CDT. Moving at a speed of 42,500 mph -- or 12 miles per second -- the meteor burned up approximately 20 miles up in the atmosphere. Although very bright, the meteor was deemed not large enough to produce meteorites. Mid-March is typically a lull period for meteor...

The shake, rattle and roar lasted just seven seconds, but the short J-2X test conducted May 16 at NASA's John C. Stennis Space Center moved the space agency closer to a return to deep space. NASA operators tested the next-generation J-2X engine on the A-2 Test Stand at Stennis to collect early data on performance of the engine and test stand with the new nozzle extension and clamshell configuration. The test also provided data on startup and shutdown processes. (NASA/SSC)

NASA's Solar Sail project, directed by L'Garde of Tustin, Calif., plans to take this innovative technology beyond Earth's orbit. The spacecraft will have a "sail" one quarter the size of a football field and park in a pseudo LaGrange point closer to the sun to double the current warning period for dangerous solar flares. Slated for launch in late 2014, the instrument aboard the solar sail craft will use the sun's photon radiation to gently offset the corresponding pull of the sun's...

During a recent test at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., the robotic lander prototype, known as Mighty Eagle, performed a hover test flying up to three feet and then translated, or moved itself sideways, to perform a controlled, safe landing 13 feet from the launch pad. This is a complex maneuver for the lander to perform accurately since a robotic lander may need to right itself autonomously when it comes in for landing on an airless body or planet with no atmosphere....

A legacy of smoke and fire is celebrated in the May episode of "Focus on Marshall." The "Focus on Marshall" team traveled to Promontory, Utah, for the final ground test of a space shuttle solid rocket motor in February. The test was conducted to ensure the safe fly-out of the remaining space shuttle missions. A total of 43 design objectives were measured through 258 instrument channels during the two-minute static firing. Hear from Marshall Center managers as they reflect on...

NASA's Ares Projects began work in 2005 towards building a new human-rated launch system to take astronauts beyond Earth orbit for the first time in more than three decades. Since its inception, the Ares team have made tremendous stride towards the first flight of the Ares vehicles. This video documents the progress made on all aspects of the Ares I crew launch vehicle, as well as towards the Ares I-X test flight scheduled for 2009 and the Ares V cargo launch vehicle, which will begin its...

NASA recently performed a trial run on a rocket sled test fixture, powered by rockets, to replicate the forces a supersonic spacecraft would experience prior to landing. The sled tests will allow the Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator Project, or LDSD, to test inflatable and parachute decelerators to slow spacecraft prior to landing and allow NASA to increase landed payload masses, improve landing accuracy and increase the altitude of safe landing-sites.

Under a brilliant early morning Arizona sky, NASA conducted a successful, record-breaking test of a drogue parachute being designed to return next-generation space vehicles safely to Earth. The 77,000-pound payload used in the test was dropped from the back of a U.S. Air Force C-17 at an altitude of 25,000 feet, setting a record for the heaviest single load ever extracted out of a C-17 during flight. NASA conducted the drop test, April 14, at the U.S. Army's Yuma Proving Ground near Yuma, Ariz.

On Monday, June 13, the robotic lander mission team was poised and ready when the lander prototype in the adjacent building lifted itself off the ground and rose unrestrained higher and higher. Applause broke out in the control room when the lander gently sat back down. This marks the first free flight of this prototype for the Robotic Lunar Lander Development Project managed at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. The robotic lander flew up to 7 feet for 27 seconds.

This video shows a compilation of events seen during the peak of the 2010 Perseid meteor shower on Aug. 13, 2010, over Huntsville, Ala. The shower began around July 17, peaked August 12-13 and will be officially over by August 24. The Perseids have been observed for at least 2,000 years and are associated with the comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle. Video: NASA/MSFC/D. Moser, NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office
