Congratulations to the entire Team for the successful completion of Integrated Test #6, which demonstrated the capabilities of our deep-space Rev 4.0 avionics architecture using the Mars moon, Phobos, as the mission destination. Major enhancements to this release include a 4-computer voting set using 3 different Operating Systems, incorporation of Core Flight Software, (now Human rated), and increased functionality of the communications system.

Great job everyone! Looking forward to seeing improvements to this release early next year.

Congrats to NASA AAE on a successful midterm project review at the Marshall Space Flight Center last week. According to Jim Ratliff, AAE Project Manager, "Nothing but compliments for the great work the AAE Team has done! Looking forward to Integrated Test #2. The Saturn V rocket mounted vertical at their visitor center is quite impressive – a must see when in the area." Thanks for sharing Jim!

AES Avionics Architectures for Exploration (AAE) project successfully completed its first major milestone, Integrated Avionics and Vehicle System Test #1, on March 21st within the Integrated Power Avionics and Software (iPAS) environment. The purpose of the test was to evaluate evolving spacecraft avionics and vehicle hardware and software technology, using an MPCV docking to a L2 target vehicle as a mission demonstration. Engineers from JSC Engineering and Mission Operations, KSC Launch Control, and JPL Interplanetary Communication teams were involved in the test. The test successfully demonstrated an AR&D of the MPCV vehicle with a L2 target vehicle in Earth/Moon L2 Orbit.

Largest planet from earth in 854 times. The life of a God-man is excellent from people in nature and their mission, read about it on my page. - Essence of death: the Function of the Creator, is the beginning of new lives through reincarnation on the spiritual and energy level inherent in the soul. The God of the dead does not happen, the body is perishable, the soul is eternal. Man is always simultaneously on all levels of life. This is the essence of Eternal life. All the science of humans, study of Gods Creation of the Worlds. And someone else's study, and its not forget. T.
