Newly released images taken by ESA’s Mars Express show an unusual accumulation of young craters in the large outflow channel called Ares Vallis. Older craters have been reduced to ghostly outlines by the scouring effects of ancient water.
Venture capitalist Alan Walton has trekked to the North Pole, climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and skydived over Mount Everest. A hop into space to enjoy a few minutes of weightlessness would have been the ultimate adventure.
Curtiss-Wright Controls Electronic Systems announced a rugged Power and Control Module (PCM) board that provides high level control and bridging to a system host via Ethernet (IEEE 802.3), USB, RS-232 and CANbus. This rugged
Standex Electronics introduced a full lineup of planar transformers which are asserted to deliver high-performance from compact, low-profile designs. The planar transformers provide low leakage inductance and repeatable capacitance. Available in
Dytran Instruments has introduced the 7503A Series, a family of high precision triaxial MEMS DC accelerometers designed for use in both commercial and military applications. The accelerometers combine a
ESA’s Venus Express spacecraft has discovered an ozone layer high in the atmosphere of Venus. Comparing its properties with those of the equivalent layers on Earth and Mars will help astronomers refine their searches for life on other planets.

China successfully launched an experimental craft on Thursday paving the way for its first space station amid a blaze of national pride, bringing the growing Asian power closer to matching the United States and Russia with a long-term manned outpost in space.
Mercury may have a lot in common with Earth, but close-up images and data captured by NASA'S MESSENGER probe this year show it's still a bit of a planetary weirdo.
As signal processing requirements continue to climb in waveform-intensive applications including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), sonar, radar, signals intelligence (SIGINT) and software defined radio (SDR), the use of multiple digital signal processors (DSP) cores is a key enabler.
ESA closely monitored the reentry on 24 September of the UARS observatory satellite. The Agency's Space Debris Office worked with NASA and international partners in a coordinated prediction and risk-assessment exercise.

Although there is still an abundance of oil and gas, the future requires continued technological improvement to access deposits that are found ever deeper underground. As these wells become deeper they also become extremely hot, and using high-reliability, high-temperature electronics for down hole drilling equipment is necessary.
VPT Inc., a HEICO company announced a new power protection module, the DVCL Inrush Current Limiter. The module controls potentially damaging inrush current drawn by DC-DC converters, EMI filters, and discrete capacitors during startup. With a
