For more than 50 years, Aerojet Rocketdyne's RL10 Propulsion System has played "a vital role in placing hundreds of military, government and commercial satellites into Earth's orbit, and has helped send spacecraft to explore every planet in the solar system."
NASA's Deep Space Gateway at 1/20th actual size. Now known as the Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway, the proposed NASA program would bring astronauts to the moon to operate a lunar space station.
The Orion spacecraft is "built to take humans farther than they’ve ever gone before," according to NASA. It will travel thousands of miles beyond the moon during Exploration Mission-1, its first mission atop NASA's Space Launch System rocket. This model of the Orion is 1/20th of its actual size.
At the Ball Aerospace exhibit, attendees gather by a half-scale model of the WSF-M Weather System Follow-on-Microwave, a next-generation operational environmental satellite system that provides actionable environmental intelligence for military operations.
