Inflatable Moon Modules
Sierra Nevada was one of five companies selected in January 2018 to make prototypes of astronaut living quarters for a planned moon-orbiting space station, known as the Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway. The company opted to make the habitat inflatable so that it could fit on a normal, heavy lift rocket but expand to provide astronauts as much space as possible.

Hubble Finds Water Vapor on Habitable-Zone Exoplanet for the First Time
With data from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, water vapour has been detected in the atmosphere of a super-Earth within the habitable zone by University College London (UCL) researchers in a world first. K2-18b, which is eight times the mass of Earth, is now the only planet orbiting a star outside the Solar System, or exoplanet, known to have both water and temperatures that could support life. The discovery, published today in Nature Astronomy, is the first successful atmospheric detection of an exoplanet orbiting in its star’s habitable zone, at a distance where water can exist in liquid form. First author, Dr Angelos Tsiaras (UCL Centre for Space Exochemistry Data,CSED), said: “Finding water on a potentially habitable world other than Earth is incredibly exciting. K2-18b is not ‘Earth 2.0’ as it is significantly heavier and has a different atmospheric composition. However, it brings us closer to answering the fundamental question: Is the Earth unique?”

What is the Dreamchaser Space Plane
The Dream Chaser Cargo System is a US reusable lifting body spaceplane being developed by Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) Space Systems. Originally intended as a crewed vehicle, the Dream Chaser Space System would have been capable of carrying up to seven people to and from low Earth orbit. The cargo Dream Chaser will resupply the International Space Station with both pressurized and unpressurized cargo. The vehicle will launch vertically on a Vulcan Centaur rocket and autonomously land horizontally on conventional runways. https://patreon.com/spacenewspodcast Get 2 Free Audio Books at Audible: https://amzn.to/2l7FrWH Become a member of Space News Pod! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCX3HDBasMU2qS3svgtuzD2g/join https://anchor.fm/space-news https://youtube.com/spacenewspod https://twitch.tv/astrowil https://spacenewspodcast.com https://twitter.com/spacenewspod https://facebook.com/spacenewspod https://instagram.com/spacenewspod1

NASA, SpaceX, Blue Origin preparing Facilities for Hurricane Dorian
Located about 35 miles east of Orlando, NASA's Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station are two connected facilities that make up the spaceport. The site was chosen in the 1950s for its proximity to the equator, meaning rockets get an extra boost from the Earth's rotation during liftoff. Rockets launching from pads that dot the coastline also mean they immediately start flying over the Atlantic Ocean, a precaution that protects the public in the event of a failure.

Shortly after 7pm ET (23:00 UTC) SpaceX began counting down to the 100-meter hop test for its Starhopper vehicle. And while there were some definitely rocket-like noises at T-0, the Raptor engine did not ignite. There may have been a problem with the igniters, as Musk noted on Twitter shortly after the test, "Raptor uses dual redundant torch igniters. Better long-term, but more finicky in development." The next launch attempt will occur no earlier than Tuesday.

SpaceX details launch and landing plans for Starship and Super Heavy
Starship and Super Heavy will launch from Florida, with the current plan to build a second launch mount at its current LC-39A launch pad at Kennedy Space Center, which it leases from NASA and currently uses for Falcon  9 and Falcon Heavy launches. After launching from LC-39A, the current plan is to have Starship return to Landing Zone 1 (LZ-1), which is SpaceX’s current landing area for Falcon first-stage boosters at nearby Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Super Heavy would land downrange, aboard a drone barge ship, like the twin “Of Course I Still Love You” and “Just Read The Instructions” ships that SpaceX uses now, depending on mission conditions on both its East and West coast launches.

Tests Show that Potatoes Can Grow on Mars
The International Potato Center (CIP) launched a series of experiments to discover if potatoes can grow under Mars atmospheric conditions and thereby prove they are also able to grow in extreme climates on Earth. This Phase Two effort of CIP’s proof of concept experiment to grow potatoes in simulated Martian conditions began on February 14, 2016 when a tuber was planted in a specially constructed CubeSat contained environment built by engineers from University of Engineering and Technology (UTEC) in Lima based upon designs and advice provided by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in Ames Research Center (NASA ARC), California.

What would happen if the Sun went out for an hour, week, month, year?
 Aside from widespread panic and confusion, not much. Earth would cool as it does after sunset, and we would be kept warm by the heat retained in the atmosphere, oceans, and land as we are every night. This is with the assumption that the Sun is simply "frozen" for an hour -- say, a giant bushel is put over it. If you actually turned off all fusion in the Sun, it would collapse and then explode, and then we'd have other fish to fry (although it would take longer than an hour for the explosion to happen). Don't get confused -- the Sun doesn't have enough mass to become a supernova, this would be a different process, which won't happen because you can't turn off all fusion in the Sun. Though there is a small but finite probability that it can stop right now on its own. But it won't. Very probably. Very. But it could.
