AN ALL-NEW "MISSION CONTROL, OVER"

TUESDAY AT 2:00PM ET

with TransHab's Donna Fender

What is TransHab? It’s an inflatable low-orbit habitation module that could

be used on the ISS, Mars, and also right here on Earth. It is super strong,

super light, and super safe. The woman behind TransHab: Project Manager

Donna Fender. TransHab is the strongest module ever put into space,

boasting a safety factor of four. By comparison, the Space Shuttle only has

a factor of two! The wall is a foot and a half thick with fabric. This makes it

light and strong: so strong that it can withstand a 1.8cm particle at

15,000mph and it’s a radiation storm shelter too!

That’s not bad for something that can be squeezed into the Shuttle’s

payload system and inflated in orbit. See what information you can

squeeze out of Donna when she discusses TransHab this Tuesday at

2:00PM ET on an all-new Mission Control, Over!

Planetary Defenders Against asteroid Collision

Latest Images from NEAR Shoemaker

Lunar Glass Gathered 30 Years Ago Still Useful

PLANETARY DEFENDERS AGAINST asteroid COLLISION

Though not as dramatic as portrayed in science fiction, real-life anti-collision

programs are no less important. Earth's defense chain includes programs

like the Near Earth Object Search at Lowell Observatory, which serves to

identify approaching comets and asteroids, while LONEOS performs as an

"information clearinghouse" on minor planets and near-earth objects,

confirming and studying astronomical discoveries.

LATEST IMAGES FROM NEAR SHOEMAKER

Even sharper images of asteroid Eros as the NEAR spacecraft moves into

a tighter orbit. Near began a descent that will place it in a 62-mile orbit on

April 11th. Near has been orbiting at 127 miles since March 3rd.

LUNAR GLASS GATHERED 30 YEARS AGO STILL USEFUL

Microscopic grains of glass brought back from the Moon are still providing

scientific data about the history of meter activity on Earth, and may hold

clues about the origin of our planet.
