These sensors will measure the environment around my protective shell and performance of thermal protection system material during landing — key info for safer and more reliable landings for future Mars missions. #CountdownToMars

Twitter Web App : Well, I definitely touched down on Bennu!

Preliminary data show the sampling head touched Bennu’s surface for approximately 6 seconds, within 3 feet (1 meter) of the targeted location. #ToBennuAndBack

Twitter Web App : The NASA Technology Tipping Point partners will develop technologies to help forge a path to sustainable #Artemis operations. One award to Nokia is to deploy the first LTE/4G system in space which could enhance lunar surface communications.

iPhone : Preliminary data show that todays sample collection event went as planned 👍 More details to come once all the data from the event are downlinked to Earth. Thanks, everybody, for following along as we journey #ToBennuAndBack!

Next stop: Earth 2023! 🌍

Twitter Web App : 🎞 LIVE FROM Lockheed Martin: Bennu, we see you! Tune in as our NASAs OSIRIS-REx spacecraft descends to the rocky surface of asteroid Bennu to attempt to scoop some space rocks from site Nightingale! Watch:…

Questions? #ToBennuAndBack…

Twitter Web App : Our upcoming Lunar Flashlight mission will be fueled by the green propellant, too! This spacecraft, launching as a payload on #Artemis I, will provide information about the presence of water deposits inside craters on the Moon.

More about this tech:

Twitter Web App : The “green” fuel – developed by Air Force Research Lab - AFRL – is safer to store and use, and thus easier and less expensive to handle here on Earth. It’s also now been proven to be more efficient, allowing spacecraft to travel farther or operate longer, given its higher performance.

Twitter Web App : GPIM conducted over 40 orbital maneuvers to test the new technologies, ultimately demonstrating a 50% increase in gas mileage compared to commonly used spacecraft fuel.

After a series of deorbit burns, the small spacecraft safely re-entered Earth’s atmosphere last week.

Twitter Web App : In just over a year our Green Propellant Infusion Mission (GPIM) proved that a new propulsion system – which runs on a never-before-used green spacecraft fuel – worked as planned & could be used as a less toxic, efficient alternative for future missions:

Twitter Web App : #ICYMI the 2020 iTech Cycle II winning innovations include a way to generate automation code without humans, a next-gen hydrogen fuel cell system, and a wound dressing that aims to nano-engineer molecules to rapidly repair skin lacerations.

Twitter Web App : The "rubble-pile" asteroid Bennu is covered in rocky debris, and is over 4.5 billion years old — but might harbor hints about the origins of life on Earth. 10 things to know before our NASAs OSIRIS-REx spacecraft goes #ToBennuAndBack to collect a sample Oct. 20:

Twitter Web App : The Polar Resources Ice Mining Experiment-1 consists of a drill combined with a tool to analyze resources harvested from beneath the lunar surface.

Weve awarded Intuitive Machines $47M to deliver these instruments to aid in our search for water on the Moon:

iPhone : The Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite is set to launch Nov. 10. Itll measure sea levels for 90% of the worlds ocean. Tag questions with #SeeingTheSeas, and tune in Oct. 16 at 7am PT (10am ET, 1400 UTC) for answers:

Twitter Web App : Chief Technologist Douglas Terrier will kick off the iTech Forum finale today, discussing NASAs future innovation challenges and the role he sees entrepreneurs playing in solving them.
