NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility completes initial assessment after Orbital launch mishap
The Wallops Incident Response Team completed today an initial assessment of Wallops Island, Virginia, following the catastrophic failure of Orbital Science Corp.'s Antares rocket shortly after liftoff at 6:22 p.m. EDT Tuesday, Oct. 28, from Pad 0A of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

Planet-forming lifeline discovered in a binary star system
Scientists have detected a streamer of dust and gas flowing from a massive outer disk toward the inner reaches of a binary star system. This never-before-seen feature may be responsible for sustaining a second, smaller disk of planet-forming material that otherwise would have disappeared long ago.

Supersonic laser-propelled rockets: Hybrid approach may help power rockets, launch satellites, push future aircraft past Mach 10
Researchers have described a new system that integrates a laser-ablation propulsion system with the gas blasting nozzles of a spacecraft which can increase the speed of the gas flow out of the system to supersonic speeds while reducing the amount of burned fuel.

Spectator Videos Show Antares Rocket Explosion from Land and Air
When a private Antares rocket built by Orbital Sciences exploded during launch on Oct. 28, spectators around the launch site, and even in the air, caught the sight on video. See their amazing, and sometimes scary, views here., Thu, 30 Oct 2014 12:39:32 GMT

Doomed Antares Rocket Powered by Refurbished Soviet Engines
Antares' first stage uses two AJ26 engines, which are refurbished variants of the NK-33 built by the Soviet Union for its ill-fated N-1 moon rocket during the height of the space race., Thu, 30 Oct 2014 12:39:32 GMT

NASA Spacecraft's Grave on the Moon Found (Photo)
NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter photographed a new lunar crater that researchers say is the grave of the space agency's LADEE probe, which ended its mission with an intentional crash onto the moon's surface on April 18, 2014., Thu, 30 Oct 2014 12:39:32 GMT

Virtual reality system simulates the International Space Station

A low-density planet that won't stick to a schedule
( —For their latest discovery, Yale astronomers and the Planet Hunter program have found a low-mass, low-density planet with a punctuality problem. Astronomy & Space News, Thu, 30 Oct 2014 12:39:32 GMT

European Data Relay System on track
The first component of Europe's space data highway passed several critical tests this summer replicating the harsh launch and space conditions it will soon have to endure. Astronomy & Space News, Thu, 30 Oct 2014 12:39:32 GMT

Use asteroids as stepping stones to Mars: Richard Binzel on NASA's asteroid redirect mission
By the end of this decade, NASA hopes to lasso a space rock: The space agency is actively pursuing proposals for its Asteroid Redirect Mission (ARM)—a mission that aims to identify, capture, and redirect an asteroid into lunar orbit. Astronauts might then visit the rock to collect and bring back samples—pieces that would presumably hold remnants of the early solar system. ARM has been touted as a steppingstone toward the ultimate goal of sending humans to Mars: The mission would advance technologies and spaceflight experience needed for humans to colonize the Red Planet.
