The stars of our mission at the Castle and beyond!

We attract ambitious engineers who are at the top of their field. Our engineers are passionate about their professions and do not view work as just “jobs”. We work hard, enjoy life, and try to minimize politics in the workplace. In all we do, we inspire enthusiasm, encourage commitment, and enjoy the moment.

Exploring & Improving -- Past, Present, Future Missions

Proud to support programs like:
Stardust
1392_Stardust_768

Stardust was the first spacecraft to return a cometary sample and extraterrestrial material from outside the orbit of the Moon to Earth.

OSIRIS-REx

NASA’s OSIRIS-REx is the first U.S. mission to successfully collect a sample from an asteroid. On Oct. 20, 2020, the spacecraft briefly touched down on Bennu, an asteroid more than 200 million miles (321 million kilometers) from Earth, and grabbed dust and rocks from a sample site called Nightingale.

NASA ARTEMIS

With the Artemis program, NASA will land the first woman and next man on the Moon by 2024, using innovative technologies to explore more of the lunar surface than ever before. We will collaborate with our commercial and international partners and establish sustainable exploration by the end of the decade.

Lucy is Less than a Month to Launch

Named after 3.4-million-year-old human fossil, Lucy will be the first spacecraft to visit Jupiter’s Trojan asteroids. These asteroids are important to study because they will give us critical insight to the early solar system, just like Lucy gave us insight into early Earth! Set to launch on October 16, Lucy

Novel Augmented Reality Software Increases Astronaut Autonomy

As astronauts voyage deeper into space, communication from Earth will be delayed, making autonomy crucial for mission success. Researchers from the NASA Advanced Exploration Systems Team devised a clever solution to increase the work an astronaut can do without direct interaction with Earth. With the use of Microsoft HoloLens, astronauts
