How to Choose Connectors Suited for Space Harwin
A special set of considerations and extra planning are required when engineering space designs. We will discuss these considerations and how to select secure, highly reliable connectors that can withstand the demands of space.

Removing Obstacles to Space Travel Barry Manz
Bounce radio signals off the moon? Unthinkable! Well it certainly was in 1946. Hardly anyone knew much about a program called “Project Diana”, and many still don’t today. This is a shame, as the project and its participants removed one of the greatest obstacles to space travel.

A Look at Space Stations of the Past, Present, and Future Mike Parks
The exploration and long-term settlement of our solar system will be entirely different from European colonization. The extreme environment of space, the vast distances, lack of indigenous resources, and the act of leaving Earth’s surface will present challenges unique to our “star-ward” journeys.

7 things to know about spacecraft subsystems before your next trip to Mars Texas Instruments
When I was young, as most aspiring engineers do, I dreamed of going to outer space, specifically Mars. And I thought the only way to get there was aboard the NASA space shuttle. The cancellation of the shuttle program crushed that boyhood dream of mine, or so I thought. The recent commercialization of satellites and launch services, that may someday provide space exploration, has kept that dream alive for all of us. With some new innovation and the decades of experience out there I believe they will be able to make this dream a reality.

The Internet of Space: Intelligence for What You Least Expect, When You Least Expect It Lynnette Reese
Hundreds of femtosatellites, called Sprites, were shipped into space on the first KickSat, which started as a KickStarter project to launch what amounts to personal satellites. Andy’s vision of the femtosat includes an engine for his IoS vision driven by the Intel® Quark™ D2000 microcontroller with an ultra-low-power core running at 32 MHz (and currently undergoing space qualification.)

Harsh Environments: Governed by Murphy's Law Arden Henderson
What is a harsh environment? It might be a holiday dinner with the polar-opposite-political relatives, especially if later trapped in the living room by a crackling fireplace with the distant uncle who sends four chain emails a day. But, today we're talking about harsh environments for electronics. Electronics Hell.

Space, The Harshest Frontier David Fambrough
What makes for a harsh environment? For a person, that’s an inhospitable set of conditions that can cause bodily harm over a period of time. Space is one of the harshest environments you can imagine for human beings – even without monstrous alien predators. Pressure, or the lack of it, temperature, or the lack of it, high-energy particles, and radiation are just not very human-friendly. It’s a cold, dark place that lacks many of the creature comforts of home – like water and air.

Mailing Address... The Moon David Fambrough
Is there such a thing as moon stamps? What type of special mail truck would you need to carry mail to the moon? Think all of this is impossible, the stuff of science fiction? Well, there’s a first for everything. The company that’s making this a reality isn’t FedEx, DHL or UPS. Nor is it the U.S. postal service. Instead, it’s Google Lunar XPRIZE MILESTONE winner, Astrobotic.

From Bi-planes to Space Debris: Digging through NASA Archives Lynnette Reese
What engineer has not had to produce a report at some time in their life? I was researching open architecture systems and stumbled upon this: the archive of reports from the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics housed in the NASA Technical Reports Server.

Human Settlements in Space; Mars Madness? SJ Barak
Advancements in technology and space travel mean human settlement on Mars is already possible using existing technologies. But while the mechanisms are ready, is human psychology? Programs like Mars One are already ramping up plans for Mars colonization, with the goal of sending the first human pioneers in crews of four, every two years, starting in 2026.
