Testing 'smart' antibacterial surfaces in space

Testing 'smart' antibacterial surfaces in space
  Leti, an institute of CEA Tech, and three French partners are collaborating in a “house-cleaning” project aboard the International Space Station that will investigate antibacterial properties of new materials in a zero-gravity environment to see if they can improve and simplify cleaning inside spacecraft.

Three startups ready for ESA BIC launch

Three startups ready for ESA BIC launch
Many creative minds dream of outer space – in Switzerland too. While Switzerland will not be sending any of its own rockets into space, it does make a major contribution to space technology and its universities and startups make it a world leader in cutting-edge technology. That is why the European Space Agency (ESA) approached Switzerland’s State Secretariat for Education and Research and Innovation (SERI) to establish a Business Incubation Center in Switzerland alongside its existing ESA BICs.

NavCube supports X-ray communications demonstration in space

NavCube supports X-ray communications demonstration in space
Two proven technologies have been combined to create a promising new technology that could meet future navigational challenges in deep space. It also may help demonstrate -- for the first time -- X-ray communications in space, a capability that would allow the transmission of gigabits per second throughout the solar system. The new technology, called NavCube, combines NASA's SpaceCube, a reconfigurable and fast flight computing platform, with the Navigator GPS flight receiver.

The space race is on

The space race is on
Man on the moon has already been a great achievement in our lifetimes; however for the first time in the history of space travel, a private enterprise will leave this world to explore another. The federal government will permit a US start up to send a robotic spacecraft to the moon next year, paving the way for the company to be the first non-government organisation to land on the moon.

Possible water plumes erupted on Europa

Possible water plumes erupted on Europa
Astronomers using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope have imaged what may be water vapor plumes erupting off the surface of Jupiter’s moon Europa. This finding bolsters other Hubble observations suggesting the icy moon erupts with high-altitude water vapour plumes. The observation increases the possibility that missions to Europa may be able to sample Europa’s ocean without having to drill through miles of ice.
