    ** watch future Linda Hall Library lectures live at new.livestream.com/lindahall ** May 14, 2015, in the Main Reading Room of the Linda Hall Library. Steve Stich, Director of Exploration Integration and Science, NASA’s Johnson Space Center Is this NASA’s most daring mission yet? Called the Asteroid Redirect Mission, NASA’s plan involves capturing a relatively small asteroid using a robotic spacecraft and placing it into orbit around the moon where astronauts can visit the asteroid using NASA’s new Orion spacecraft. The technology and skills used to get astronauts safely to and from the asteroid will help NASA get to Mars. Just as the Mercury and Gemini projects helped the Apollo missions reach the moon, the Asteroid Redirect Mission will pave the way for a trip to the Red Planet, expected to take place sometime in the 2030s.

    • Escaping Earth's Gravity: NASA's Space Launch System

      This lecture was the third of a five-part course covering the future of America's Human Space Exploration Program, organized by Steve Sandford from the NASA Langley Research Center. This course was given at the Yoder Barn Theatre in Newport News, VA in 2014 as part of the Christopher Newport University Continuous Learning Society Fall Session. This third lecture, given by Dr. Jeremy Pinier from NASA Langley Research Center, describes in simple terms the extreme challenge that is escaping Earth's gravity field to travel into space. Dr. Pinier describes why rockets need to be so powerful, provides a history of how we got to where we are today with rocket technology, and then provides an overview of the new United States crew and heavy lift space transportation system: the Space Launch System, a rocket that will be bigger than even the magnificent Saturn V of the Apollo program. This is *actually* rocket science!

                  Boeing employees remove a completed barrel section from the Vertical Weld Center (VWC) tool at NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans. The barrel is the first to be completed on one of the largest pieces of the Space Launch System (SLS) core stage. The VWC tool was completed last month, and Boeing has been conducting friction stir welding tests to ensure quality and safety of flight hardware. NASA’s SLS will tower more than 200 feet tall, with a 27.6 foot diameter, storing cryogenic liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen to power the rocket. This barrel is just one section – 22 feet tall and is made of aluminum alloy. The section shown is for the liquid hydrogen tank, which is comprised of five such barrels and two end domes. This section will be used for further weld and core stage integration testing.
