TODAY SCIENCE TOMORROW HEALTH

Expedition 59 Flight Engineers (from left) Anne McClain, David Saint-Jacques and Christina Koch are gathered inside the U.S. Destiny laboratory.

TODAY SCIENCE TOMORROW ASTRONAUT HEALTH Today, as science research and experimentation on human, food, and survival are conducted daily in (and on) the International Space Station, the crew works hard to solve issues with future space travel in the solar system, and beyond. These detailed and exacting experiments continue today and tomorrow, safety of space… Continue reading TODAY SCIENCE TOMORROW HEALTH

WEEK’S LAST OF CUBESATS LAUNCHED

This week's launches the shoe box-sized mini-satellites shows a pair of CubeSats, with the Earth’s limb in the background, is seen moments after being ejected from a small satellite deployer outside of the space station’s Kibo lab module.

The week’s last cubesats are launched while the crew aboard the space station continue their tasks and science research. The week’s final set of CubeSats were deployed today from outside the Japanese Kibo lab module’s airlock. Inside the International Space Station, the Expedition 51 crew continued exploring microgravity’s effects on muscles, bone cells and vision.… Continue reading WEEK’S LAST OF CUBESATS LAUNCHED

BONE CELL AND FLUID SHIFT PHYSIOLOGY

With bone cell and fluid shift observations underway, here, astronaut Jack Fischer works outside the Japanese Kibo laboratory module during a spacewalk on May 12, 2017.

Bone cell and fluid shift observations and experimentation continues aboard the International Space Station. Again, for the record, micro-gravity environmental existence is very hard on the human anatomy. The Expedition 51 crew members are back at work today on human research after a historic 200th spacewalk at the International Space Station on Friday. More Cubesats… Continue reading BONE CELL AND FLUID SHIFT PHYSIOLOGY

ISS SPACE SCIENCE HEALTH AND CUBESATS

As space science health research continues, astronauts Shane Kimbrough and Thomas Pesquet were pictured inside the cupola just after the SpaceX Dragon was captured Feb. 23, 2017.

Space science health research and cubesat deployment are some of the present activity occurring on the International Space Station this week. NASA is preparing for longer human journeys deeper into space and is exploring how to keep astronauts in good health be and productive. The Expedition 50 crew members today studied space nutrition, measured their… Continue reading ISS SPACE SCIENCE HEALTH AND CUBESATS
