9 tags and 0 profile in descriptionNASA photographer Arthur Laufman began producing full-length technical films shortly after joining the Photo Lab in 1948. Working with researchers, Laufman developed ideas for the films and wrote accompanying scripts. The scripts were complemented by test footage, shots of facilities, and staff. He then edited the footage and added audio, visuals, and narration. #NASA , #NASAglenn , #1989 , #tbt , #photolab , #techfilms , #creative , #Cleveland , #Ohio Photo credit: NASA

These wear measurements allow us to predict the lifetime of the components during tests that can last for thousands to tens of thousands of hours. #NASA , #NASAglenn , #technology , #NASATech , #HallThruster , #wearandtear #hoursandhours , #EPL , #research , #Cleveland Photo credit: NASA/ Bridget Caswell

Researchers in Lewis’ Chemistry and Energy Conversion Division sought to develop new power sources, including solar energy, to sustain spacecraft in orbit. This solar energy work in the 1960s eventually led to the power system for the International Space Station. #NASA , #NASAglenn , #tbt , #lewisfield , #solar , #energyconversion , #powersystems , #space , #ISS , #orbit , #cleveland , #ohio Photo credit: NASA/Martin Brown

Kilopower has successfully been demonstrated as a new nuclear reactor power system that could enable long-duration crewed missions to the Moon, Mars and destinations beyond. #NASA , #NASAglenn , #kilopower , #Stirling , #research , #laboratory Photo credit: NASA/Bridget Caswell
