NASA - Future Flight Design

In this program, you will become a NASA researcher and design the air transportation system of the future! When cars were invented, scientists and engineers had to design a ground transportation system with roads and traffic rules. A similar system was designed for air transportation. With more people traveling by air than ever before, your challenge is to find ways to improve this air transportation system.

Space Junk

Like the Earth’s environment, the space environment is getting more and more cluttered. There are currently MILLIONS of man-made orbital ruins that make up “space junk”. Unfortunately, the past 45 years of space exploration have generated a lot of junk!

Space junk can be anything from hatches blown off space modules, paint fragments from the space shuttle, or satellites that no longer work. Man-made debris orbits at a speed of roughly 17,500 miles/hour (28,000 km/h)! Think of the damage even a small speck of paint could do if it hit a spacecraft at such a high speed!

We need your help to capture junk that’s floating out there in space. But be careful not to capture working satellites, spacecraft, or astronauts–three strikes and you’re out!
