The test hardware consisted of J-2 components used from the Apollo program in thes through the X program of the s. "This series of tests is an important step in development of the J-2X engine," said Mike Kynard, manager of the upper stage engine for the Ares Projects at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

Jonathan supports the Distributed Engine Control work being done at NASA, particularly in support of dynamic simulations of distributed systems and hardware-in-the-loop simulations. This is in pursuit of developing a hardware-in-the-loop engine simulation system for research and evaluation of distributed engine control technologies.

January 3 "Gemini" became the official designation of the Mercury Mark II program. The name had been suggested by Alex P. Nagy of NASA Headquarters because the twin stars Castor and Pollux in constellation Gemini (the Twins) seemed to him to symbolize the program's two-man crew, its rendezvous mission, and its relation to Mercury.

This is a list of distributed computing and grid computing projects. For each project, donors volunteer computing time from personal computers to a specific cause. The donated computing power comes typically from CPUs and GPUs, but can also come from home video game systems. Each project seeks to solve a problem which is difficult or infeasible to tackle using other methods.

The Safety Culture program is celebrating its year anniversary at NASA. Over the past decade, program members have dedicated their time and energy to providing a platform for the NASA community to voice safety concerns without repercussion, communicating safety issues to agency and center leaders, and developing education to encourage contributions to Safety Culture in the workplace.

Performance goals are defined for NASA’s Strategic Enterprises and for Crosscutting Processes. The NASA Budget Estimates, Fiscal Year docu-ment provides the complete description of program activities, budget requirements, and performance measures.

The J-2 was a liquid-fuel cryogenic rocket engine used on NASA's Saturn IB and Saturn V launch vehicles. Built in the U.S.

by Rocketdyne, the J-2 burned cryogenic liquid hydrogen (LH2) and liquid oxygen (LOX) propellants, with each engine producing 1, kN (, lb f) of thrust in vacuum.

The engine's preliminary design dates back to recommendations of the Silverstein y of origin: United States. The workshop was designed to bring together NASA and industry High-Speed Civil Transport (HSCT) Aerodynamic Performance technology development participants in area of Configuration Aerodynamics (transonic and supersonic cruise drag prediction and minimization), High-Lift, Flight Controls, Supersonic Laminar Flow Control, and Sonic Boom Prediction.

Introduction Background Systems engineering at NASA requires the application of a systematic, disciplined engineering approach that is quantifiable, recursive, iterative, and repeatable for the development, operation, maintenance, and disposal of systems integrated into a whole throughout the life cycle of a project or program.

The RS engine ignition on Feb. 21 was the third full-duration test conducted on the A-1 Test Stand at Stennis Space Center in NASA has been using the stand since January to test RS Author: Doris Elin Urrutia. However, NASA researchers are exploring different design options in order to capitalize on this airflow.

When an aircraft’s engines are put in the path of this boundary layer, say at the rear of the aircraft, the boundary layer air is able to enter the engine, and is thus ingested (BLI). Four RS engines and twin solid rocket boosters will power NASA’s new rocket, the Space Launch System, on deep space missions, including to an asteroid and ultimately to Mars.

All cars with engine swaps, aftermarket forced induction, an upgraded or modified turbocharger/ supercharger, increased number of camshafts, non-OEM heads, or a ported rotary engine, need to be evaluated individually by the NASA National PT Director to determine the correct base class.

The competitor must send an e-mail to the National PT. NASA has awarded a $ billion contract to Aerojet Rocketdyne to restart construction of new RS engines.
