Smart Space Technology
Technology is what’s used to make space travel possible. The Space Launch System, or SLS, is a rocket that will carry astronauts farther into space than ever before. This technology allows astronauts to explore destinations such as asteroids and eventually Mars. Exploration Ground Systems supports the processing, integration and operation of NASA’s deep-space vehicles and launch system by providing power on orbit and in space using solar arrays.
Technology will continue to improve your experience in space
The technology that makes space travel possible will continue to improve your experience in space.
- Technology will make space travel more comfortable. Your trip might be uncomfortable at first, but once you get used to it, it’ll feel like a breeze!
- Technology will make space travel safer. In fact, NASA has already tested out their new method of lowering astronauts off of rockets by using parachutes (that’s right—they don’t drop like they did back in ’50s). This new method has reduced the chances of injury from getting launched into orbit by almost 50%. You’re welcome!
- Technology is making it easier for people all over the world who dream about becoming astronauts one day: thanks largely due its efforts towards developing reusable rockets and spacecrafts which can take us farther into our solar system than ever before possible before; as well as providing safe habitats within Earth’s orbit where we can live comfortably without having any fear about what could happen if anything goes wrong during launch or landing procedures…
Exploration Ground Systems
Exploration Ground Systems (EGS) is the part of NASA that provides support for all missions, including SLS, Orion and other exploration missions. EGS is responsible for providing the ground systems required to launch spacecraft into space as well as supporting their operations in orbit.
EGS supports SLS by providing an integrated life-cycle management plan that includes planning and budgeting processes, development of technical specifications and compliance with regulations such as those related to human health and safety or environmental protection standards. EGS also performs critical analyses on mission requirements; develops detailed engineering plans; provides training materials; manages hardware manufacturing operations; coordinates with contractors/subcontractors involved in developing critical components; maintains records related to all activities performed under contract by them (elements described above).

Technology is what’s used to make space travel possible. It includes everything from the rocket engines and computers that power it, to the materials used in its construction, right down to the tools used on board.
Technology has also been crucial in making space travel safe and efficient. If a spacecraft doesn’t have enough fuel or oxygen, then it won’t be able to reach its destination! And since humans aren’t built like robots—we’re prone to getting motion sickness when traveling at high speeds—the astronauts themselves have had some pretty advanced technology at their disposal: virtual reality headsets (like Oculus Rift) allow them access information without having any idea where they are; tablets allow them access information about Earth while operating outside its atmosphere; even smartphones help keep everyone connected with each other during long missions away from home base.
Orion will carry astronauts to deep-space destinations including an asteroid and eventually Mars.
Orion will carry astronauts to deep-space destinations, including an asteroid and eventually Mars. The first test flight of Orion is scheduled for December 2014.
The spacecraft’s main mission is to transport astronauts from Earth orbit into cislunar space (the region between the Earth and the moon), then on toward an asteroid or other celestial body in our solar system. It can also be used as a crew transportation vehicle for missions beyond low-Earth orbit (LEO), including missions to Jupiter’s moons Europa and Ganymede and Saturn’s Titan.*
SLS will launch NASA’s Orion spacecraft, satellites, science missions and more that will help send astronauts farther into space than ever before.
SLS will launch Orion spacecraft, satellites, science missions and more that will help send astronauts farther into space than ever before.
The SLS rocket will be the world’s most powerful rocket in its class with a lift capacity of 77 metric tons (150,000 pounds). This is about three times more than any other rocket built for space exploration today. The SLS flight configuration includes five main engines fueled by liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen propellants to power its first stage through liftoff until out of fuel at approximately one-third throttle before coasting under gravity alone. The second stage uses liquid natural gas as its fuel source just like its predecessor did but it also features two RL10 engines instead of one (like Falcon 9) which uses hot gases from those engines to help push them farther out into space than had been previously possible with only single core designs like Apollo or Soyuz rockets that had smaller diameter tanks meant only for short periods above Earth’s atmosphere due primarily because there wasn’t enough room inside such vessels for long term storage needs.”
The Space Launch System
The Space Launch System, or SLS, is a super heavy-lift launch vehicle being developed by NASA for the purpose of human exploration of deep space. The first flights are scheduled to occur in 2021.
The SLS will be the world’s most powerful rocket, able to carry more than 130 metric tons into deep space and provide an opportunity for astronauts to travel further from Earth than ever before in history. Ground systems are vehicles, launch pads, mission control and other infrastructure that supports missions at a particular location (e.g., Kennedy Space Center).
EGS supports the processing, integration and operation of NASA’s deep-space vehicles and launch system.
The EGS program supports the processing, integration and operation of NASA’s deep-space vehicles and launch system. EGS is a multi-center program that provides engineering and mission support to the Space Launch System (SLS), Orion spacecraft, and other deep space vehicles.
EGS provides the SLS a safe and efficient vehicle for deep-space exploration. The first stage of this rocket uses liquid hydrogen as its fuel source; this allows it to be reusable up until around 50% of its potential thrust limit was achieved during testing at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama in 2015. Its second stage uses liquid oxygen as an oxidizer instead of kerosene as well. These two stages will be attached together by four strap-on boosters that eject from underneath before separating again after launch.
