NASA eyes Mars site where astronauts can reach water ice with a shovel

NASA eyes Mars site where astronauts can reach water ice with...

This map shows the presence of water ice on Mars. "Cool colors are closer to the surface than warm colors; black zones indicate areas where a spacecraft would sink into fine dust; the outlined box represents the ideal region to send astronauts for them to dig up water ice," said NASA. NASA/JPL-Caltech/ASU NASA may be…
NASA astronaut’s blood clot in space gets treated by doctor on Earth

NASA astronaut’s blood clot in space gets treated by doctor on...

NASA It was like Grey's Anatomy in microgravity. A NASA astronaut developed a blood clot (deep vein thrombosis - DVT) in the jugular vein partway through a long-term mission on the International Space Station. The space agency called in University of North Carolina doctor Stephan Moll, a blood-clot expert, to help develop a treatment plan for…
