Introduction

NASA's mission is to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research. To do that, thousands of people have been working around the world and in space for more than 50 years, trying to answer some basic questions. What's out there in space? How do we get there? What will we find? What can we learn there -- or learn just by trying to get there -- that will make life better here on Earth?


NASA's work is diverse: proving flight technologies; creating capabilities for sustainable human and robotic exploration; exploring Earth, the solar system and the universe beyond; developing critical enabling technologies such as the space shuttle; and conducting science in orbit aboard the International Space Station. With NASA you can explore the universe and discover Earth.

A full mission dress rehearsal was held for the Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator (LDSD) project today at the U.S. Navy Pacific Missile Range Facility (PMRF) in Kauai, HI. The #LDSD crosscutting technology demonstration mission will test breakthrough entry, descent and landing technologies that will enable large payloads to be landed safely on the surface of Mars. The second flight test of LDSD will be attempted on Tuesday, June 2, launching a rocket-powered, saucer-shaped test vehicle into near-space. Mission blog: http://blogs.nasa.gov/ldsd

The same GPS technology that helps you get where you’re going in a car will soon be used in space to improve hurricane forecasting. The technology is a key capability in a our mission called the Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System (CYGNSS) currently in development.

CYGNSS, set to launch in 2016, will use eight micro-satellites to measure wind speeds over the ocean, increasing the ability of scientists to understand hurricanes. For more on the mission, visit: http://www.nasa.gov/cygnss

A team of scientists has used X-ray and gamma-ray observations of some of the most distant objects in the Universe to better understand the nature of space and time. Their results set limits on the quantum nature, or “foaminess” of spacetime at extremely tiny scales. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1BuaBnw

And the story continues, arguments. This is a good observation that might turn into something very useful in the future. I thought the double slit issue was solved and that we still don't know for sure if black holes or event horizons exist. Centers of galaxies behave in different ways and sometimes they might appear black but that does not mean there is a hole on it, just an opinion. "I know nothing" I believe we should observe with analytical vision and help science with our observations instead of arguing.

So far, all looks clear for our New Horizons spacecraft. The mission team is looking carefully for any indications of dust or debris that might threaten the spacecraft before its flight through the Pluto system on July 14; a particle as small as a grain of rice could be fatal.

Actor Jon Cryer voices our new film to help celebrate 50 years of spacewalks. Astronaut Ed White became the first American to walk in space on June 3, 1965. The documentary on the history and future of humans working on a tether in space premieres Monday, June 1, on NASA Television starting at 10 a.m. EDT, and will be available on our website and YouTube channel.

About 25,000 light years away is the Arches Cluster, the densest known star cluster in the Milky Way galaxy. It's close to the heart of our galaxy and fairly young, between two and four million years old. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1BuNxov

A billowing plume of steam signals a successful 450-second test of the RS-25 rocket engine today! RS-25 engines tested on the stand will power the core stage of our new rocket, the Space Launch System (SLS), which is being developed to carry humans deeper into space than ever before. This is another step on our #JourneyToMars!
