More Hard Science

For each story posted on the Nasa website provide a link for the more technical people to read. From the general science stories I am often left wondering, "but how?" and "But why?"

  1. I am almost always disappointed with the content and depth of articles. I understand that younger readers and folks without much background read the articles, but there are journalistic ways to increase the depth and technical content later in the piece that will satisfy more experienced readers as well. Right now if I want more detail I am forced to go to other sites.

  3. Your stories should contain more content. Most of your stores, while good, are void of extensive background.

  4. Please include a section for more technically minded people. Almost all of the "educational" content on the current site is on the level of "Here's what Newton's second law says", rather than actual physics or science.

    In addition, a section for the full specs of all spacecraft (manned and unmanned) flown by NASA.

  5. Absolutely agree.

    This needs to happen.

  6. I"d like to have more involved explanations for us space geeks that don't understand everything. simplify it like how stars are made and the nebula and how you can tell whats at the very outer edge of the universe !!!

    Maybe an education module for not just the kidsbut the adults too .

    IO find space and our planets and whats going on out there fascinating. Oh and a place where we can ask questions !!!!

    I LOVE NASA !!!!

  7. I'm an aerospace engineering student. I'd really like to read more technical info about each story.

    1. I am in the same situation. It would be really beneficial to know some of the design specifications of some missions to get an idea of things I can be studying in school.

  8. As a geology student, I would love to see more hard planetary science info.

  9. I'd like more technical information as well, such as payload/volume of propellant, altitude attained thereof, and the way the circuit breakers interrupt current between the panels and end use.

  10. The "NEWS" articles that I have been receiving seem like they're geared toward the Elemetary Student and the General Public, which is fine, in itself. But for those of us Amateurs with more knowledge of Astronomy, Astrophysics, Engineering & the Space Program in general, another, more in-depth article would be greatly appreciated.

    Also, please add a Transcript for Videos. I don't have sound, but would like to be able to get meaing from interviews, etc., without having to read lips.

    Thanks for your request for input!

  11. Give more technical articles on missions (within reason) that highlight new technology and innovations. Are we advancing the field of rocket science? How are we doing so? What new advancements are there in planetary science? Essentially, use the stories of some of the amazing things you do, but supplement them with technical articles oh how they work. For example, what sort of drive train does MSL use, what are the specifications of the imagining equipment on Kepler, what new innovations are going into Space Launch System just to name a few.

  12. I, and my daughter (Astro-Physcicist, active Professor) have this issue about 'anti-entropic systems,'which 'always involve the water molecule, H2o.It seems to be 'prevelant' in our Solar System, neh?'
