When NASA sends humans to the moon for the first time in nearly 50 years as part of its Artemis Exploration Program, research conducted by Missouri S&T Ph.D. student David Lund will help crew members understand the ways plasma and lunar surface dust interact.Read More »
NASA recently achieved an engineering milestone when the Mars Perverance rover landed safely and began beaming pictures and audio back to Earth. NASA also recently discovered water on the moon, a major step toward long-term exploration and colonization.Read More »
The success of NASA’s future plans to explore and inhabit the moon may depend in part on research by university students, including a team of seven from Missouri University of Science and Technology who have won a grant from the space agency to develop a way to remove lunar dust from power-producing solar cells. The […]Read More »
Andrew Hinkle, a Ph.D. student in aerospace engineering at Missouri S&T, is part of a select group of graduate students across the U.S. to receive a NASA Space Technology Research Fellowship (NSTRF). Through the award, Hinkle plans to help advance the agency’s understanding of how particle flows such as Martian dust storms could affect spacecraft landings.Read More »
Three Missouri S&T Miners played vital roles in NASA’s successful first moon landing The United States’ Apollo 11 mission was the first crewed mission to successfully land on the moon on July 20, 1969. While only two men actually walked on the surface of the moon that day, thousands of NASA employees contributed to the […]Read More »
