SAGE III on ISS is a key part of NASA’s mission to provide crucial, long-term measurements that will help humans understand and care for Earth’s atmosphere.
nasa_langley Neil Armstrong and other Apollo astronauts learned how to land on the moon by training at Langley's Lunar Landing Research Facility – now known as the Landing and Impact Research Facility. In the past decade we upgraded the facility with a Hydro Impact Basin to help us prepare for our journey to Mars. We’ve dropped various versions of NASA’s Orion spacecraft into the 20-foot-deep water to understand how the spacecraft may behave when landing under its parachutes in different…
Through a partnership, teams from NASA Langley have run a pair of recent experiments aboard the aircraft, a commercial airliner retrofitted to test technologies intended to make future aircraft lighter, smarter and more efficient.

In 2013, NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va., continued to advance science, technology and exploration. From dropping a helicopter to building and testing future space vehicles, it's been a busy year. Check out our "Top 11" list of amazing accomplishments for 2013.
NASA Langley's newest round of design troubleshooting for life on Mars has come up with some intriguing design solutions. With the extreme cold, unbreathable atmosphere, and rainbow of radiation types, astronauts landing and living on the red planet will have to be well protected as soon as they arrive.
