NASA’s "Juno" spacecraft traveled 1.7 billion miles to reach its destination: the planet Jupiter. Before "Juno’s" journey, NASA engineers had to develop a spacecraft capable of surviving the trip. They researched and created "Juno," a solar-powered spacecraft. Part of the “Crazy Engineering” series.
The engineers at NASA are studying two new technologies to help image distant Earth-like planets. Coronagraphs are tiny instruments fitted inside telescopes to block light and help scientists study clues as to whether life is present on a planet. Starshades also block light and produce clearer photographs of distant planets. Both of these technologies are used with telescopes and provide scientists with enhanced photographs of space. Part of the “Crazy Engineering” series.
The engineers at NASA are studying cellphones and computers as a means to create a mini-satellite called a CubeSat. CubeSats are small but highly capable of performing a variety of space missions. Part of the “Crazy Engineering” series.
See how geckos inspired new NASA technology that makes things stick to each other in space. Potential future applications might be to grab and service satellites or to salvage space garbage. Part of the “Crazy Engineering” series.
In 1990, when the first images from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope were too blurry to use, JPL scientists and engineers went to work to devise a fix. They created a camera with corrective vision to bring Hubble images into sharp focus. Part of the “Crazy Engineering” series.
