ESA, NASA Join Hands For The Lunar Science Research

In recent time, David Parker (Director of Human and Robotic Exploration at the ESA) and Thomas Zurbuchen (NASA’s Associate Administrator for Science Mission Directorate) have inked a “Statement of Intent” for bringing together cooperative science research related to the lunar and its prospects for mission cooperation. During the Space Science Week at Washington, D.C. by National Academies, the statement was approved and emphasized a common interest in going on the moon, boosted by scientific discovery and supported for private-sector abilities, and operation services on the lunar exterior and in the surrounding area of the moon.

David said, “We are glad to bring European experts to the table and to function collaboratively to pave the way to a sustainable occurrence on the moon where countries and the private sector function together to bring benefits for people on the Earth.” Once again, the moon has gathered the attention of space organizations as a “collection” of cosmic history and a keystone for planetary science. Ice, water and other potential resources at the moon present the possibility of the moon in transforming a “platform” to the wider Solar System. Mike Pence—the U.S. Vice President—has directed NASA on March 26, 2019, to speed up a human comeback to the moon in the next 5 Years.

Recently, NASA along with MIT was in news as its engineers demonstrated an innovative type of airplane wing. A team of engineers has constructed and tested a radically novel kind of plane wing, put together from hundreds of small identical pieces. The wing has the ability to change shape for controlling the plane’s flight and can offer an important boost in aircraft manufacture, flight, and upholding efficiency, the scientists say. This new approach of wing construction can afford greater suppleness in the design and production of future aircraft.
