We have had multiple folks ask if we have any received data telemetry tapes from ISEE-3 or the others in the series (ISEE-1 or ISEE-2). If anyone has any of these tapes it would be incredibly useful as we could then feed them into our software radio program.

Unlike our Sun, with its retinue of orbiting planets, many stars in the sky orbit around a second star. These binary stars, with orbital periods ranging from days to centuries, have long been the primary tool for measuring basic quantities like the star’s mass. While masses of normal stars are now well determined, some binaries present special interest because their stars are unusual (e.g., very young) or because they may contain planets, gas clouds, or other stars.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Glenn Research Center invites partners (experimenters) to participate in the development, integration, and on-orbit execution of research and technology experiments and demonstrations using the Space Communication and Navigation (SCaN) Testbed aboard the International Space Station (ISS).

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) is issuing this Request for Information (RFI) to solicit information about potential sources for support of the Space Geodesy Project (SGP). The goals of this activity are related to the study of the shape of the earth and how it rotates. This effort will be the follow-on of an existing NASA GSFC contract (Ref. #NNG10HP00C) with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)/Haystack Observatory (HO) for the continuation of research and development for the state-of-the-art next generation Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) systems in support of the NASA SGP, as well as carrying out VLBI operations and designing and fabricating special VLBI hardware and software.

ATK (ATK) has reached agreement on a $178 million contract award as part of the Air Force's Phase 1 Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle (EELV) buy from United Launch Alliance (ULA). The order value includes hardware for both of the current United States Air Force EELV launch vehicles, the Atlas V and Delta IV. The initial contracting period includes large composite structures with deliveries commencing in AFY14 and continuing into early AFY18. The option period includes hardware deliveries in AFY17 through AFY19.

All the particles we know to exist make up only about five per cent of the mass and energy of the universe. The rest - "Dark Matter" and "Dark Energy" - remains mysterious. A European collaboration lled by researchers from the Vienna University of Technology has now carried out extremely sensitive measurements of gravitational effects at very small distances at the Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL) in Grenoble. These experiments provide limits for possible new particles or fundamental forces, which are a hundred thousand times more restrictive than previous estimations.
