NASA Kicks Off Asteroid Simulation; Media Invited to Observe




HOUSTON
-- A simulated mission to an asteroid is under way at NASA's Johnson
Space Center in Houston. Journalists are invited to learn about the test
and technologies on Thursday, Aug. 30.

Media will be able to
learn about the test and see the technologies up close. Reporters
interested in attending should email Brandi Dean at brandi.k.dean@nasa.gov. International media must apply for credentials by 5 p.m. CDT, Aug. 23. U.S. reporters should respond by 5 p.m. Aug. 29.


The Research and Technology Studies (RATS) test, a 10-day asteroid
exploration simulation in Johnson's Space Vehicle Mockup Facility,
kicked off this week. As NASA makes plans to send humans to asteroids by
2025, RATS and other mission simulations provide the agency with a way
to test new operations, concepts and exploration techniques to influence
the future of exploration.

The 2012 RATS test will use
several technologies to simulate life and work on the surface of an
asteroid. A crew of five scientists and flight controllers in pairs will
take turns sleeping, eating, exercising and working inside the cabin of
the multi-mission Space Exploration Vehicle (SEV) for 3 days and 2
nights at a time. They will evaluate the cabin's displays, controls and
views with the help of a video wall that contours around the vehicle's
windows displaying a simulation of the asteroid surface as they steer
across it.

Outside of the SEV, crew members will participate
in simulated spacewalks on the asteroid surface using Johnson's virtual
reality laboratory and its Active Response Gravity Offload System. The
laboratory uses a virtual reality helmet and gloves to simulate movement
on a virtual asteroid surface. The system suspends astronauts from a
specialized crane designed to offset their weight and simulate
microgravity.

The team will use these technologies to
evaluate various modes of movement during spacewalks while the SEV-based
crew members assist from inside the vehicle. A team of flight
controllers and scientists also will support the tests from the nearby
Mission Control Center, with a 50-second, one-way delay in communication
between the two groups to mimic what astronauts working on an asteroid
would experience
