    LarryL. Simmons, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology Abstract The Space Infrared Telescope Facility (SIRTF) is the last of the NASA Great Observatories, and a cornerstone of the NASA Origins Missions. The Observatory will include an 85 cm telescope in a unique orbit around the sun. The telescope will be launched at ambient. A miniature gas sensor developed at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has been licensed by SeekOps, Inc. in Pasadena, California. This sensor, the Open Path Laser Spectrometer (OPLS), has previously been used to detect gas leaks with a high degree of accuracy using handheld devices or unmanned aerial systems (“UAS” or “drones”). The Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s starshade lab. Clockwise from upper left: 1/2-scale starshade in its stowed configuration with one golden petal wrapped around it (55 feet or 17 meters when deployed); a foot (two-meter) optical shield inner disk prototype, orange; 1/2-scale starshade petal (feet or 5 meters long); two-meter origami prototype perched on a test stand; and the .

    He made a career as a scientist at Caltech and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California. At JPL he worked as a scientist on the Viking Mars lander program. John C. Houbolt ( -) was an aeronautical engineer who helped conceptualize and was the primary advocate for the idea of lunar orbit rendezvous. Abstract. This paper describes the Low Temperature Research Facility program now under development at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. This program will develop the experiments and cryogenic facility to fly experiments requiring temperatures in the liquid helium range, from the superfluid range ( K) to the critical point ( K).Author: P. Mason, U. Israelsson, T. Luchik, W. Owen, D. Petrac, D. Strayer. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is a federally funded research and development center and NASA field center in the city of La Cañada Flintridge with a Pasadena mailing address, within the state of California, United States.. Founded in the s, JPL is currently owned by NASA and managed by the nearby California Institute of Technology (Caltech) for executive: Michael M. Watkins, Director. This work was carried out at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, under contract with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Code AE, under the NASA Electronics Parts and Packaging Program (NEPP). Additional support was provided by DARPA/SPO, NASA Code R, and CISM for meso-gyro Size: 1MB.

    It was first named the Aircraft Engine Research Laboratory after funding was approved in June It was renamed the Flight Propulsion Research Laboratory in , the Lewis Flight Propulsion Laboratory (LFPL) in (after George W. Lewis, the head of NACA from to ), and the NASA Lewis Research Center in Agency executive: Janet L. Kavandi, director. Porous Plug—invented at Stanford, and engineered for space at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL, Ball Aerospace in Boulder, CO, and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, CA. This plug allows helium gas to evaporate from the Dewar's inner chamber, while retaining the superfluid liquid helium inside. Deputy Program Manager Kendra Short is the Deputy Program Manager for the NASA Exoplanet Exploration Program at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Prior to this position, she served as a Payload Manager within the SWOT project, responsible for the delivery of over $50 million in instruments and subsystems. So this [the plans expressed in the February 10 document] represented a sort of culmination of many efforts of the propulsion laboratory to get into rocket propulsion on a big scale, just as they were in engine - jet engine - propulsion. Dryden claimed that the Lewis document had no status and never went further than his desk drawer.

CRYOGENIC TECHNOLOGY A cryogenic technology is the process of involvement or including of usage of rocket propellants at a cryogenic temperature.

It can be the combination of liquid fuels such as: Liquid Oxygen (LOX), and liquid hydrogen (LH 2) as an oxidizer and fuel in the different mixtures or proportions.
