NASA's Glenn Research Center has an year history of developing and testing engines, fuels and other hardware for air and space : Steve Fentress. NASA John H. Glenn Research Center at Lewis Field is a NASA center, located within the cities of Brook Park and Cleveland between Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and the Rocky River Reservation of Cleveland Metroparks, with a subsidiary facility in Sandusky, director is Marla E. Pérez-Davis. Glenn Research Center is one of ten major NASA field centers, whose primary mission Agency executive: Janet L. Kavandi, director.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration Sponsoring Agency Code Washington, DC Supplementary Notes Project Manager, A. E. Anglin, NASA Lewis Research Center, Cleveland, Ohio Abstract Elevated temperature tensile and stress-rupture properties were evaluated for forged TDNiCrFile Size: 8MB. Left: An engineer at NASA's Lewis Research Center prepares to test the DS1 ion engine. The fuel used by Deep Space 1's ion engine is xenon, a gas that is more than 4 times heavier than air. When the ion engine is running, electrons are emitted from a hollow tube called a cathode. Lewis Research Center is committed to playing a critical role in sustained aerospace leadership of the United States in the 21st century. It has the necessary technical assets, core capabilities, human capital, and facilities to support aeropropulsion and space research, technology, and development. This report describes the NASA Lewis Research Center Propulsion Systems Laboratory (PSL) and provides information for customers who wish to conduct experiments in it. The facility is located at the NASA Lewis Research Center (see fig. 1) in Cleveland, Ohio, adjacent to File Size: 2MB.

Space mission and science news, images and videos from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the leading center for robotic exploration of the solar system. Ion propulsion systems were first demonstrated in space by the NASA Lewis (now Glenn Research Center) missions "Space Electric Rocket Test" (SERT) I and II. SERT-1 was launched J , and successfully proved that the technology operated as predicted in space. Space Propulsion and Physics Research. Space Propulsion and Plasmas Space Propulsion. Most spacecraft being launched today host both conventional (i.e., chemical) propulsion—used for orbital insertion, large delta-V maneuvers, and attitude control—and electric propulsion (EP)—used primarily for station keeping and, less often, for LEO–GEO transfer and interplanetary missions. The Mechanical Components Branch at NASA Glenn Research Center hosted a workshop on Tuesday, , to discuss space mechanisms technology. The theme for this workshop was 'Working in the Cold,' a focus on space mechanisms that must operate at low temperatures.
