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.

Four men trapped under as much as 10 feet of bricks, mud and other debris have been rescued in Nepal thanks to a new search-and-rescue technology developed in partnership by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and NASA. The device called FINDER (Finding Individuals for Disaster and Emergency Response) uses microwave-radar technology to detect heartbeats of victims trapped in wreckage. Following the April 25 earthquake in Nepal, two prototype FINDER devices were deployed to support search and rescue teams in the stricken areas.

Join our Journey to Mars Challenge! We're embarking on an ambitious journey to Mars, and we're inviting the public to write down their ideas, in detail, for developing the elements of space pioneering necessary to establish a continuous human presence on the Red Planet. Get the details: http://go.nasa.gov/1DRg1bO

For med diagnostics perhaps the "quantum locking" development being researched by the cryogenic physics group at Tel-Aviv University may provide a static/precision magnetic field that may lead to a low power MRI. I am thinking specifically of the field between their "locked" cryogenic target and the low power magnetic source. It appears that they have achieved a magnetic field that is both static and precise allowing for simple mapping of any interference caused by an object placed between the two of variable magnetic permeability. Just a thought toward diagnostic aids that would be required but difficult to accommodate.

Space exploration make a big difference for small businesses – and vice versa.

Our Administrator Charles Bolden marked Small Business Week 2015 by touring Compass Coffee, a Washington, DC, coffee shop that uses NASA-derived technology in their coffee roasting and brewing. We assist small businesses in various industries through technology transfer and commercialization of technology. To learn more about Small Business Week, visit: http://www.sba.gov Follow the discussion on social media using #DreamSmallBiz.

SpaceX Crew Dragon's first critical flight test, known as a Pad Abort Test, is expected on Wednesday. This will be the first flight test of SpaceX’s revolutionary new launch abort system. The primary objective is to capture as much data as possible, which is key in preparing Crew Dragon for its first human missions in 2017.

Five things to know about the pad abort test: http://www.spacex.com/news/2015/05/04/5-things-know-about-spacexs-pad-abort-test

What's up for May? Inner planets Venus and Mercury grace the west-northwest sky an hour past sunset while the giant planets Jupiter and Saturn rule the sky this month.
