NASA Science Live is back and we’re LIVE from the Moon to Mars Ice & Prospecting Challenge. Ten teams from across the country have been tasked with one goal: to extract ice beneath a simulated lunar or Martian surface. As we look forward to NASA’s Artemis program to the Moon and even one-day crewed missions to Mars, ideas from challenges like this will be essential in creating technology to access resources like water for humans to survive on other worlds. Join us on Sept 24th at 3:00 p.m. to hear from NASA experts and the teams. Meet the experts Alejandro>>> Read more

Is there oxygen on Mars? Technically yes, but it’s nothing like the amount we have on Earth. So breathing is out of the question. However, there IS a lot of carbon dioxide (CO2) on Mars. Now a new technology — MOXIE — has proven that we can convert Martian CO2 into oxygen for use by future explorers. NASA engineer Asad Aboobaker tells us more.

NASA’s future will continue to be a story of human exploration, science, engineering and technology. Working together, we define the future, achieve the impossible and discover the unknown. With our Artemis missions, NASA will land the first woman and first person of color on the Moon, using innovative technologies to explore more of the lunar surface than ever before. We will collaborate with commercial and international partners and establish the first long-term presence on the Moon. Then, we will use what we learn on and around the Moon to take the next giant leap: sending the first astronauts to Mars.>>> Read more

Every element of NASA’s Orion spacecraft, Space Launch System rocket, and ground systems is now at Kennedy Space Center -- the final stop on planet Earth before the uncrewed Artemis I mission around the Moon. These critical components are being primed for flight through final assembly, stacking, and fueling operations. The first in a series of increasingly complex missions, the Artemis I flight test will provide a foundation for human deep space exploration, and demonstrate our commitment and capability to extend human existence to the Moon and beyond.
