Wide-ranging managerial and technical actions are underway at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA, in response to the loss of the Mars Climate Orbiter and the initial findings of the mission failure investigation board, whose first report was released today.

NASA is sending a spacecraft to slam into the side of a tiny asteroid in 2022. The asteroid is part of a binary pair, and it just got a new name. The mission could help NASA plan for a future A plane crash is generally not something many people want to be a part of, but a large crowd gathered to watch one Thursday, June 20, as NASA researchers assisted the Federal Aviation Administration with the intentional crash of a Fokker F-28 mid-size transport aircraft. The 1966 NASA T-38 crash occurred when a NASA Northrop T-38 Talon crashed at Lambert Field in St. Louis, Missouri, on February 28, 1966, killing two Project Gemini astronauts, Elliot See and Charles Bassett.The aircraft, piloted by See, crashed into the McDonnell Aircraft building where their Gemini 9 spacecraft was being assembled. The weather was poor with rain, snow, fog, and low clouds. The Space Shuttle Challenger disaster was a fatal incident in the United States space program that occurred on Tuesday, January 28, 1986, when the Space Shuttle Challenger (OV-099) broke apart 73 seconds into its flight, killing all seven crew members aboard. The crew consisted of five NASA astronauts, and two payload specialists.The mission carried the designation STS-51-L and was the tenth Get the latest news, images, videos and more from humanity's home in orbit -- the International Space Station.

The Columbia disaster was the second that occurred during NASA’s space shuttle program after the Challenger, also causing widespread sadness and concerns about the space programs. Jun 23, 2020 · NASA is sending a spacecraft to slam into the side of a tiny asteroid in 2022. The asteroid is part of a binary pair, and it just got a new name. The mission could help NASA plan for a future where The Controlled Impact Demonstration (or colloquially the Crash In the Desert) was a joint project between NASA and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that intentionally crashed a remotely controlled Boeing 720 aircraft to acquire data and test new technologies that might help passengers and crew survive. The Space Shuttle Challenger disaster was a fatal incident in the United States space program that occurred on Tuesday, January 28, 1986, when the Space Shuttle Challenger (OV-099) broke apart 73 seconds into its flight, killing all seven crew members aboard.

NASA has convened two panels to look into what led to the loss of the orbiter, including the internal peer review panel that released the Thursday finding. NASA also plans to form a third board
