The Chinese teleported two photons to Earth, and proved that faster than light communication is possible!
NASA has a new spacecraft that can save Earth. Unfortunately, it isn't funded and it won't make its first test flight until 2022 at the earliest.
If a "nation killer" asteroid comes heading our way, Bruce Willis won't be able to save us.
In 1960, twenty years before the Space Shuttle, NASA launched another manned, airplane-shaped spacecraft to the fringes of space. Neil Armstrong was one of its pilots.
If an asteroid the size of an 18-wheeler collided with Earth it would cause massive destruction. And since there are a lot of these, can we at least keep an eye on where they are? Not very well.
Are asteroids humanity's Armageddon or the promised land? It depends on which gets here first.

In the dance of the ever-improving computer image, our own perceptions are a willing partner.
Wrapping up the series by talking about a final and really influential technological change, the digital revolution.
Having a permanent space station in orbit is all well and fine, but how to get people and materials on and off it?
The future may hold many surprises, and this may be one of them
It is time I picked up the thread of my series on art inspired by real existing space exploration.
Not just scuba divers, but spacewalking astronauts could also experience decompression sickness. i.e. "the bends"
Astronaut Mike Mullane has some insights into the ramifications of the Apollo 1 fire. Also, Gus Grissom was buried at West Point and as a cadet Mike marched in his funeral.
A Sci Fi scavenger hunt!
NASA's "Failure Is Not An Option" culture was born three days after the Apollo 1 fire.
"NASA believed that necessary and sufficient action had been taken to prevent a fire. Of course, all ignition sources had not been eliminated.”
“Hey!” and Ed White broadcast, "I've got a fire in the cockpit!" The Apollo outer hull ruptured and all three astronauts were dead.
Grissom, White and Chaffee weren't the first Apollo astronauts to die on the job. Four died in NASA training jet accidents. Why didn't they get more attention?
