Solving Space – Cooling garments

[sp name=’CoolingGarment’] This fall, we are exploring how space inspires progress. Solve space today by unscrambling this image of an astronaut’s Liquid Cooling and Ventilation Garment (LCVG), which is worn under their spacesuit to keep them cool under pressure. Spacewalks are tough, and astronauts often work up a sweat. So, they needed to have a […]

Solving Space – Internal Communication System

[sp name=’SnoopyCap’] This fall, we are exploring how space inspires progress. From the Apollo era to NASA’s Artemis generation, good communication is key when you are stepping out into the vastness of space. That’s why astronauts have always relied on an internal communication system to keep them connected to their crew and ground support personnel […]

Solving Space – Life Support System

[sp name=’LSS’] This fall, we are exploring how space inspires progress. From taking the first step into space, to taking the first step on the Moon, astronauts have relied on their Portable Life Support System (PLSS) to achieve some of humanity’s most historic accomplishments. Solve space by unscrambling this image of a PLSS, which makes […]

Solving Space – Perseverance

[sp name=’MarsRover’] This fall, we are exploring how space inspires progress. The exploration missions of today will fuel the deep space expeditions of tomorrow. One of these pioneering missions, Mars 2020, involves the Perseverance rover roaming the red planet with invaluable cargo that will help us learn more about ancient Mars as it searches for […]

Solving Space – OSIRIS-Rex

[sp name=’OSIRIS’] This fall, we are exploring how space inspires progress. The exploration missions of today will fuel the deep space expeditions of tomorrow. One of these pioneering missions, OSIRIS-Rex, is on its way back to Earth with some precious cargo that just might help us learn more about our solar system. How did our […]

Solving Space – Apollo-era lunar rover

[sp name=’LunarRover’] This fall, we are exploring how space inspires progress. As we prepare for a return to the Moon with Artemis, it is important to look back at how Apollo inspired NASA’s next giant leap. Many of today’s rover designs were inspired by perhaps one of the most iconic vehicles of all time – […]

Solving Space: Space Cardio

[sp name=’SpaceCardio’] This summer, we are exploring how we push human extremes in order to survive and thrive in the harsh environments of space. Exercise can be extreme on Earth, but astronauts take it to the next level in zero gravity. What does a cosmic cardio workout look like? Surprisingly, not much different from those […]

Solving Space: Weightlifting in space

[sp name=’ARED’] This summer, we are exploring how we push human extremes in order to survive and thrive in the harsh environments of space. Exercise can be extreme on Earth, but astronauts take it to the next level in zero gravity. Could you imagine weightlifting in the weightless environment of space? For astronauts onboard the […]

Solving Space – Running in space

[sp name=’RunningInSpace’] This summer, we are exploring how we push human extremes in order to survive and thrive in the harsh environments of space. Exercise can be extreme on Earth, but astronauts take it to the next level in zero gravity. An astronaut’s weightless workout is literally an out of this world experience! Bone and […]

Solving Space: Transporting food to space

[sp name=’FoodTransport’] This summer, we are exploring how we push human extremes in order to survive and thrive in the harsh environments of space. So far, we explored the extremes of cooking and eating in space, but perhaps one of the biggest challenges is getting food to the crew in orbit. Astronauts can’t just run […]
