Voice coil actuator on-board NASA's spacecraft to Bennu

Voice coil actuator on-board NASA's spacecraft to Bennu
Part of NASA’s first asteroid sampling mission, is a brand of Sensata Technologies, which could revolutionise understanding of the early solar system. BEI Kimco designed a customised Moving Magnet Voice Coil Actuator (VCA) to meet the harsh requirements for a spectrometer moving mirror application on the Origins-Spectral Interpretation Resource Identification Security Regolith Explorer (OSIRIS-Rex) spacecraft.

NASA tests new insulation for SLS rocket

NASA tests new insulation for SLS rocket
You may not think about insulation much, but it's one of those unsung industry heroes that keeps our drinks cold and homes warm on those bone-chilling winter days. Insulation also is a key component to protecting NASA's Space Launch System and its super-cold fuels for the journey to Mars.

Geckos inspire the ultimate outer-space adhesive

Geckos inspire the ultimate outer-space adhesive
A piece of tape can only be used a few times before the adhesion wears off and it can no longer hold two surfaces together. But researchers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, are working on the ultimate system of stickiness, inspired by geckos. This article's main image shows an artist's conception of a future robot that could use its "gecko" feet to carry out, for example, ISS maintenance.

Project may enable aircrafts powered by electric motors

Project may enable aircrafts powered by electric motors
The arrival of a unique experimental demonstrator at NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center may herald a future in which aircrafts are powered by electric motors. The Leading Edge Asynchronous Propeller Technology (LEAPTech) project will test the premise that tighter propulsion-airframe integration, made possible with electric power, will deliver improved efficiency and safety, as well as environmental and economic benefits.
