NASA takes advantage of small entrepreneurs in their race back to the moon

US organizations will enable NASA to bring space explorers on the Moon in five years and build up a manageable nearness there, as a significant aspect of the more prominent investigation approach on the Moon to Mars. NASA has chosen 363 recommendations for independent ventures and research establishments in 41 states to help improve the kinds of abilities required for these future missions with an investment of over $45 million from the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs of NASA.

We are excited about the innovative ideas these companies are bringing – Jim Reuter, associate administrator of NASA’s Space Technology Missions Division (STMD)

“The technologies are very promising to help NASA achieve its goals across all areas of the mission, including our efforts to send American astronauts to the Moon and then to Mars, while providing a long-term boost to the American economy. “

Nearly a hundred of the selected companies will be the first to receive an SBIR or STTR contract from NASA. An international study of the Center for Astrobiology (CAB, CSIC-INTA), has discovered two small terrestrial planets around the Star of Teegarden, a red dwarf star in the solar neighborhood. Both planets have a mass similar to Earth and its temperature could be soft enough to hold liquid water on its surface.

Located at a distance of only 12.5 light years, in the constellation of Aries, with a radius seven times smaller than the solar. With 8% of the mass of the Sun, the Star of Teegarden is one of the smallest red dwarfs who know each other Despite its proximity. It is so tenuous (1,500 times weaker than the Sun) that it was not identified until 2003.

In addition, NASA is looking for Robots to Sniff Out Moon Pits to use them for Astronaut Homes to stay. “From orbit, you can’t get the viewpoints or proximity to see the details that matter,” William Whittaker, a roboticist at Carnegie Mellon University who is heading up the project, said in a press release. “That’s why we need robots. Is there a way in? Are there overhangs? Could a robot rappel in? Might there be a fissure, cavern or cave opening?”
