'Diffusing' In Propellant Tanks May Benefit Future SLS Missions

Source: RedOrbit

A special piece of hardware called a low-profile diffuser is being designed, built and tested at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, for propellant tanks. The diffuser maintains the density and required flow rate of the propellant. Using a smaller diffuser can free up space to raise the liquid level -- potentially increasing the amount of payload that can be carried on future launch vehicles, like NASA's Space Launch System, or SL ...

Engineers at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., are using the latest technology -- 3D printing -- to make parts for a scale model of NASA's new rocket, the Space Launch System (SLS). The model is being used for acoustic testing, which will show how the powerful noise generated by the engines and boosters may affect the rocket and crew, especially during liftoff. The data will then be used to verify the desig ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
