Straton Industries is proud to be selected once again by NASA and Jet Propulsion Laboratories to build components for the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope.
NASA’s current plans call for the Roman Space Telescope to study dark energy, measure the history of cosmic acceleration, complete the exoplanet census begun by NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope and demonstrate technology for direct imaging and characterization of exoplanets. Launch is slated for the mid-2020s.
Straton Industries is working with NASA to build parts for the exciting Europa Clipper mission to Jupiter.
NASA’s Europa Clipper spacecraft will conduct a detailed survey of Jupiter’s moon Europa to determine whether the icy moon could harbor conditions suitable for life. The spacecraft, in orbit around Jupiter, will make about 45 close passes over Europa, shifting its flight path for each flyby to soar over a different location so that it eventually scans nearly the entire moon.
Straton Industries has been selected by Jet Propulsion Labs (JPL) in Pasadena, CA to supply new custom parts for the Mars 2020 Rover Project based on the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity rover configuration.
From NASA’s Perseverance Mar Rover Twitter @NASAPersevere – Ten drill bits brought to Mars. Most are for collecting samples; others, like this one, are for abrading rocks (grinding away the outer surface). That’s all part of getting to the scientific clues hidden inside the rocks.
