Earth

This image of the Florida Keys was acquired on October 28, 2001, by the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) on NASA's Terra satellite.

Our Solar System

This view of Saturn and its rings is a composite made from images taken with the Cassini spacecraft wide-angle camera on December 13, 2006.

The Universe

The story of life and death in the Eagle nebula, an industrious star-making factory located 7,000 light-years away, is seen in this majestic view taken by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope.

THANKS, NASA,

for 50 years of discovery and exploration.

Caltech’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory became an official part of NASA’s patrimony in December 1958, and that relationship has spawned five decades of discoveries in space and space technology. As a NASA facility, JPL—with its links to Caltech’s science and engineering community—has spearheaded a new era in space science that has taken us from Earth through our solar system and beyond. Caltech looks forward to another 50 years of collaboration with the world’s premier space agency.

Scotty asked why the light didn’t flash like other airplanes. His father told him that the satellite possessed no light of its own but was so high it could still see the sun, so the three of them were looking at reflected sunlight. There was a long silence while they contemplated a brand-new world.

ifty years after its founding, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration arguably leads the world in exploration, standing on the shoulders of a long line of explorers throughout history. Its astronauts have circled the world, walked on the moon, piloted the first winged spacecraft, and constructed the International Space Station. Its robotic spacecraft have studied Earth, visited all the planets (and soon the dwarf planet Pluto), imaged the universe at many wavelengths, and peered back to the beginnings of time. Its scramjet aircraft have reached the aeronautical frontier, traveling 7,000 miles per hour, 10 times the speed of sound, setting the world’s record. How did an agency with such varied accomplishments come into existence?

e2v

an established place in space For more than 20 years e2v has been supplying high performance image sensors to the space sector, developing a particularly close relationship with the engineers of NASA in support of pioneering space exploration. e2v are recognised for their technical excellence by NASA and the world’s other major space agencies where e2v’s sensors are gathering detailed images and making new scientific discoveries. 1.

e2v is working in partnership with NASA on the following projects: NASA’s new Mars probe, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). The two-tonne orbiter is gathering data on Mars’ climate, composition, surface features and capturing images from the probe’s High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE). e2v CCD (charge coupled device) image sensors are incorporated into this HiRISE camera which is capturing images of unprecedented resolution and volume of the Red Planet’s surface, looking in particular for clues on the planet’s water and ice history. NASA’s Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatories (STEREO) mission also counts on image sensors from e2v to capture detailed pictures of the Sun. The mission uses two simultaneously orbiting spacecraft to study the Sun in three dimensions. The resulting 3D images provide world-first views of the Sun-Earth relationship, and will also help to predict when space weather events will affect the Earth. NASA’s New Horizons mission to Pluto, which will collect key information on the surface, composition and atmosphere of Pluto also includes e2v image sensors. The sensors, incorporated into the spacecraft’s Ralph and LORRI science instruments, will help to provide unprecedented image data on the minor planet, its large moon Charon, and its two newly discovered smaller moons. Such scientific studies will provide information on the Kuiper Belt objects, which survive billions of miles away from the sun. Continuous technological development ensures that e2v retains its position as one of the world’s pre-eminent suppliers of scientific detectors to the space science community. Looking towards the future e2v has already supplied devices for the planned upgrade of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and has started the manufacture of image sensors for NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory, a rover that is part of NASA’s Mars Exploration Program scheduled to launch in 2009. The Mars Science Laboratory is a long-term robotic exploration to assess if Mars is, or ever has been, an environment that can support life. The image sensors will be used in The Chemistry and Mineralogy instrument (CheMin) aboard Mars Science Laboratory, which will identify and measure the minerals on the planet.

Celebrating its own 60th anniversary, e2v is proud to have been a part of so many of NASA’s vital missions and looks forward to an exciting age of exploration ahead.

Sen. Styles Bridges (R-N.H.), the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, didn’t want to meet with me at his office. He didn’t want to come over to our offices. He stated that if the military legislative liaison saw me over there or his visiting our office, he would be criticized. He didn’t want that. They would criticize him and call him a traitor to the cause of the armed services. So he would meet me at the Hotel Carlton.

NASA's first launch of astronauts into space on May 5, 1961, was the beginning of a wondrous age of exploration. In nearly 150 separate missions spanning the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, Apollo-Soyuz Test Project and Space Shuttle programs, astronauts have engaged in sophisticated scientific experiments, complex engineering tasks, heroic voyages to the moon and no less significant cooperative programs with international partners. All of these activities have been critical in advancing America’s progress in what President John F. Kennedy called “the new ocean” of space.

Oerlikon Space the former Contraves Space Over 40 years ago we entered the Space arena by developing the structure of the first European scientific satellite ESRO-1 that was launched in 1968. Building on this success we have been shaping Space history in Europe and elsewhere.

The spectacular success of the Cassini/ Huygens mission in 2005 was made possible by our multifunctional separation mechanisms. After a journey of seven years through the solar system they separated the two spacecraft exactly as predicted. Since 1990 the Hubble Space Telescope has provided us with unprecedented views of the Universe. Our Primary Solar Array Deployment Mechanisms provided the release of the Solar Arrays that made these outstanding discoveries of Hubble possible. Today Oerlikon Space is the No.1 in Europe for Solar Array Drive Mechanisms. We are also No. 1 for payload fairings in Europe and are proud that we supplied the fairing for the “New Horizons” spacecraft on top of the American Atlas V-551 Launcher.

The question always has been the same: Can human life survive in the alien environment of space? As Wernher von Braun wrote in 1952, “Some medical men are concerned at the prospect of permanent weightlessness, not because of any known danger, but because of the unknown possibilities.” There were even fears that the launch into space might itself be lethal. Dr. Heinz Haber of the U.S. Air Force’s Department of Space Medicine wrote in 1952, “Some pessimists maintain that the crew members of a rocket ship would not live to experience space, because they wouldn’t even survive the tremendous stresses placed upon them during the powered ascent.” ;daadl^c\ Hejic^` VcY i]Z VYkZci d[ i]Z heVXZ gVXZ! i]Z Jc^iZY HiViZhVcYi]ZHdk^ZiJc^dc[ZgkZciangVXZYidÒcYdjii]ZVchlZgid i]ZhZfjZhi^dch!hZcY^c\Yd\h!bdc`Znh![gd\hVcYkVg^djhdi]Zga^[Z [dgbh^cidheVXZ#KZgnfj^X`anWdi]Xdjcig^ZhaZVgcZYi]Vii]Zldghi [ZVghlZgZjc[djcYZY!VcYi]ViadlZg[dgbhd[a^[ZXdjaYgZVY^anhjg" k^kZWdi]aVjcX]VcYlZ^\]iaZhhcZhh# 8djaY]jbVcha^kZ^cheVXZ!]dlZkZg!VcY[dg]dladc\4DcXZV\V^c i]ZheVXZgVXZegdk^YZYi]ZVchlZg#I]gdj\]djii]Z&.+%h!C6H6VcY ^ihXdbeZi^idgh^ci]ZHdk^ZiJc^dcÓZl^cXgZVh^c\anXdbeaZmbVccZY b^hh^dchidÒcYdjii]Za^b^ihd[]jbVcZcYjgVcXZ^cheVXZ#>cÓ^\]ih aVhi^c\Vcnl]ZgZ[gdbV[ZldgW^ihidhZkZgVaYVnh!VhigdcVjihVcYXdh" bdcVjihWgVkZYi]Zjc`cdlcZck^gdcbZcid[heVXZidÒcYdji^[]j" bVchXdjaYl^i]hiVcY^ihZ[[ZXih!VcY^[hd!]dl^ildjaYX]Vc\Zi]Zb# 6ii]Zi^bZ!i]ZegdWaZb[dghX^Zci^hihlVhVhbjX]Ò\jg^c\dji ]dlidbdc^idgi]Za^[Zh^\chd[i]Z^gW^dad\^XVaheZX^bZch!l]Zi]" Zg]jbVcdgVc^bVa!Vh^ilVhign^c\idjcYZghiVcYi]ZZ[[ZXihd[ lZ^\]iaZhhcZhh ^ihZa[# C6H6 hX^Zci^hih YZkZadeZY V kVg^Zin d[ gZ" bdiZ hZch^c\ YZk^XZh id bdc^idg ]ZVgi gViZ!

The moon has held our imaginations for millennia, yet it is only in modern times that we have visited this body, first with robotic machines and then with astronauts. Exploration of the moon has taught us much about the evolution of the solar system and ourselves. We’ve known for centuries about the effects on tides and biological cycles from a waxing and waning moon. But it took space-age exploration to show us how the moon is connected to human existence on a very fundamental level.

For thousands of years humans have gazed at the night sky and wondered about the presence of life elsewhere, whether in our solar system or on some other blue planet or body around another star. Such thoughts have found their expression in fiction, scientific missions and religions worldwide. Philosophers and ordinary people have pondered the rise of life on our planet. Creation myths are fundamental to every civilization and culture, and reflect the profound resonance of the question of our origins. Today, astronomers have pushed back our understanding of the origins of the universe to within tiny fractions of microseconds of the big bang. However, science cannot, as yet, offer any complete definition of life, nor yet point to the exact time, conditions and mechanisms when organic matter first went from nonliving to living. Just 50 years ago, humans began to extend their presence into space, first with robots and then with humans. As this tentative expansion of our species into other worlds continues, basic questions remain unanswered about the long-term adaptation of living organisms to other environments. For example, we do not know what the effect will be of living for years on Mars, where the pull of gravity is about one-third that of Earth. Astrobiology addresses all these compelling mysteries by embracing the study of the origin, evolution, distribution and future of life in the universe.

While we do not often stop to think about it, we are living in the atmosphere of the sun, known as the heliosphere. And we creatures on Earth are just beginning to grasp many of the implications this brings. The sun is our source of light and life, but also of radiation. And it challenges our reliance on technology in numerous ways. Over the past 50 years NASA has made significant investments and achieved huge scientific advances in understanding the sun, its processes and impact on the entire solar system. At NASA, the Heliophysics Division is concerned with three major questions: Why and how does the sun vary? How do the Earth and planetary systems respond? What are the impacts on humanity? ;gdbC6H6hWZ\^cc^c\h!V\ZcXnhX^Zci^hih gZVa^oZY hdaVg dWhZgkVi^dc [gdb heVXZ ldjaY XgZViZjc^fjZgZhZVgX]deedgijc^i^Zhcdiedh" h^WaZdc:Vgi]#;gdbheVXZ!i]ZhjcÉhaVnZgh XVc WZ eZZaZY VlVn Wn dWhZgkVi^dch ^c bja" i^eaZlVkZaZc\i]hd[a^\]i!a^\]ii]Vi^hÒaiZgZY djiWndjgVibdhe]ZgZ#;gdbheVXZ!i]ZhdaVg l^cYeVgi^XaZhXdchiVcianhigZVb^c\[gdbi]Z hjcXVcWZhVbeaZY#>cheVXZ!lZVi]ZgVcYV gdiVi^c\:Vgi]VgZcZkZgVc^hhjZ!hdlZXVc dWhZgkZi]ZhjcZkZgnbdbZcid[i]ZYVn# I]Z^YZVd[hijYn^c\i]Zhjc!d[XdjghZ!^h cdicZlid]jbVc]^hidgn#CVi^kZeZdeaZh]VkZ h]dlc\gZVi^ciZgZhi^ci]ZhjcVcY^ihbdkZ" bZcih i]gdj\]dji ]^hidgn# >c VcX^Zci 8]^cV! eZdeaZgZedgiZYanWa^cYZYi]ZbhZakZhign^c\id Y^hXZgchjchedih#I]Z\gZVibdcda^i]^XhigjX" ijgZViHidcZ]Zc\ZWZ\jcVgdjcY'(%%7#8# ]VhVXg^i^XVadg^ZciVi^dcidlVgYhi]ZhjbbZg hdahi^XZ# I]djhVcYh d[ hbVaaZg hidcZ X^gXaZh Zm^hi i]gdj\]dji :jgdeZ VcY WZndcY! cdi^c\ X]Vc\Zh^ci]ZhjcÉhVc\aZVcYedh^i^dc[gdb YVn id YVn! gZeZViZY nZVg id nZVg# I]Z aVg\Z BVnVcengVb^Yd[:a8Vhi^aad!Wj^aiVgdjcY-%% 6#9#!]VYVheZX^ÒXhdaVgdg^ZciVi^dc# I]ZhX^Zci^ÒXgZXdgYd[djga^[Z"\^k^c\hiVg egdWVWanWZ\Vc^c&+&'l]Zc<Va^aZd<Va^aZ^ dWhZgkZY!gZXdgYZY!VcYlgdiZVWdjihjchedih l^i] V gZXZci ^ckZci^dc! i]Z iZaZhXdeZ# Di]" ZghWZ\VcidYdi]ZhVbZ#HX^ZcXZ]VYcdl bVg`ZYi]ZXgZVi^dcd[VXdch^hiZcigZXdgYd[ hjchedi dWhZgkVi^dch# 9ZkZadebZcih ^c i]Z cVhXZciÒZaYXVbZhadlan#>c&-)*ild;gZcX] e]nh^X^hihidd`i]ZÒghie]didd[i]Zhjc#DkZg i]ZcZmi&%%nZVghdghdhdaVghX^ZcXZbVYZ ^cXgZbZciVa egd\gZhh l^i] \gdjcY"WVhZY ^c" higjbZcih! ^cXajY^c\ i]Z YZkZadebZci d[ gV" Y^dVhigdcdbn#NZi!^ilVhcdijci^ai]ZHeVXZ 6\Zi]VibV_dgVYkVcXZhZchjZY!dcZWj^aY^c\ jedci]Zdi]Zg#;gdb^c^i^Va!hedgVY^XhiZeh!V l]daZHjc":Vgi]hnhiZb^Xegd\gVbZbZg\ZY

In one of the most famous radio broadcasts ever aired, a series of news bulletins purported to follow the progress of an alien invasion of American soil. Debuting on Halloween, 1938, the Orson Welles adaptation of British writer H.G. Wells’ science fiction novel War of the Worlds caused a sensation when as many as a million listeners became convinced the dramatization was real. In urban areas, panicked crowds gathered, while in the countryside, entire families fled their homes – both fearing they would be targets of an imminent, apocalyptic Martian attack.

HeVXZEgd\gVb7ZcZÒih/ C6H6ÉhEdh^i^kZ>beVXidcHdX^Zin By J.R. WILSON

In his January 1961 farewell address to the nation, President Dwight D. Eisenhower fretted about the tradition of “the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop [being] overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields.” To be certain, NASA has employed large teams of scientists and engineers in managing its complex missions. But the agency has also encouraged the spark of genius that comes from individual inventors. Significantly, both ways of doing business have resulted in remarkable technical innovations that have served to advance progress in aeronautics research, space science and space exploration as well as benefit people on Earth.

From NASA’s very origins, its leaders, as well as other government officials, realized that the agency would need a variety of partners to accomplish its expansive exploration and research mission. In terms of the interagency, academic, industry, and international partnerships that were struck by NASA, an unusual set of relations emerged in the first years of the agency. In no small part, the approach sought to build on the capabilities of each external organization rather than duplicate them across many groups.

Jc^iZYHiViZh"Hdk^ZiHeVXZ 8ddeZgVi^dcYjg^c\i]Z8daYLVg By Roald SAGDEEV, University of Maryland, and Susan EISENHOWER, The Eisenhower Institute

Russian space scientist Roald Z. Sagdeev spent a large part of his career viewing NASA from the Soviet Union’s side of the Cold War divide. Sagdeev, the former head of the Russian Space Research Institute, now is the director of the University of Maryland’s East-West Space Science Center. He wrote this essay with his wife, Susan Eisenhower (President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s grandaughter) that traces the long, hard path to space cooperation until the Soviet Union’s dissolution in 1991.

NASA

Under Huntress’ leadership NASA embraced a “faster, better, cheaper” methodology for conceiving and executing space missions – the idea was to decrease the time of designing, building and launching new spacecraft while holding down the typically staggering costs – and it proved a fortunate strategy. hdbVcnd[i]Zdi]ZgVXi^k^i^Zhd[i]ZheVXZ V\ZcXnhZZbZYidZ^i]ZgWZ^ci]ZYdaYgjbh dg ^c hjhiV^cZY YZXa^cZ# JcYZg =jcigZhhÉ aZVYZgh]^eC6H6ZbWgVXZYVÆ[VhiZg!WZiiZg!

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing to think about studying Earth from above or sending robots and humans to the moon or Mars or conducting experiments in space. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something else to create the technology to actually do these things. The people who turn space exploration dreams into real NASA missions or projects are engineers and scientists.

Germany and the US through six decades of space flight By Dr. Niklas Reinke

50 years of NASA are a worthy occasion to honour the intense and fruitful relations between the USA and Germany in astronautics. As in many other fields of politics and science, the co-operation between both countries has always been close, closer than any other transatlantic partnership in space flight. Especially American and German scientists benefitted from this constellation. Even though engineers in both countries – together with Russians – were the pioneers of rocketry, it was not before 1945 that their work got connected.

In 1945, the Americans seized the archives of the German rocket program, together with about a hundred rockets, in a spectacular salvage operation codenamed ‘Special Mission V2’. There was an intense interest in the German rocket program. Its head Wernher von Braun was also brought to the US, together with 128 engineers of his former Peenemünde team. Although the US had a thirtyyear-old tradition of rocket research that started with Goddard, no American space program existed in 1946. The Germans soon were able to continue their work on behalf of the US-government. With von Braun being in charge, the US developed the Redstone and the heavy launcher Saturn V that, in 1969, took the first men to the moon. Official German-American co-operation in space flight started in the 1960s. Both governments decided on the joint mission Azur, which, in 1969, became Germany’s first satellite studying the Earth’s magnetosphere. With this first joint project, German research benefitted from the now advanced American space science and technology. The Americans on the other hand, saw advantages in cooperating with selected branches of the Federal German industry and research that were considered particularly reliable. Azur marked the beginning of a tradition of bilateral transatlantic co-operation. In the 1970s, next in line was Helios, the outstanding mission that brought two German-built probes closer to the sun then any spacecraft before. German scientists also took part on the spectacular landing of the US probes Viking on Mars, the deep-space probes Voyager and the Pioneer Venus Mission. Until today, Germany and the US succeeded in more than 40 joint satellites, probes and space telescopes. The most recent program is the airborne infrared telescope Sofia – a German telescope carried on a NASA Boeing 747 for very flexible astronomic studies without needing a telescope in space. Indeed, international co-operation remains essential for major space programs like the STS or the ISS. Germany headed the European development of Spacelab, the multi-disciplinary laboratory carried on 16 Space Shuttle flights in the 1980s and 1990s. But due to the problems with STS, Spacelab could not fly as often as hoped for. The fact remains that Spacelab was the most ambitious space science project ever carried out up till then. They totalled 181 days in space and enabled 110 astronauts to work on 720 experiments, culminating in the highly successful Neurolab mission in April 1998. Yet the spirit of Spacelab lives on in the ISS and its European laboratory Columbus – again developed and constructed under German responsibility. Only now, with the ISS being a reality, we are in a position to provide a final judgment on the value of human space flight, and hence on future manned missions like an international base on the Moon. 50 years of NASA and 100 years of German Aerospace Research, which the Deutsche Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) celebrated in 2007, are a solid basis for many more fruitful joint missions during the rising millennium. With international competencies combined, the sky is no longer the limit. As a political scientist and historian, Dr. Niklas Reinke works for DLR corporate communications.

On Oct. 1, 1958, the 170 NASA Headquarters employees gathered in the courtyard of their building, the Dolly Madison House, located across Lafayette Park from the White House, to hear the agency’s first Administrator, T. Keith Glennan, proclaim NASA open for business. At the beginning, NASA had 8,000 employees absorbed from the 43-year-old National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, three laboratories (now renamed research centers), and two stations. Among those employees who “punched the time clock” on NASA’s first day are several hardy individuals who still proudly wear the NASA badge or work for NASA contractors. These are the stories of NASA’s 50 year men and women.
