Over at Mashable, there’s a good article about Russia’s ISS-bound space robot being shown off via its extra-added ability to “double fist lethal hand cannons”. It’s the “perfect” way for the Russians to show off its complex motor function skills and software by having it blast away with unnerving accuracy. Yes, it…
The current crew of the International Space Station strike their superhero poses for a group shot (alien creature taking the photo not shown). But can they do a three-point landing?
What is NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson doing to poor French astronaut Thomas Pesquet on the International Space Station?
A strange and alien force has rendered the crew of the International Space Station immobile. Will they be frozen forever? Could this weird influence be felt across the globe?
What US astronaut has the record for most time spent in space? If you’re thinking Scott Kelly because he recently completed a year long tour of duty on the International Space Station you would have been correct yesterday but not today.
The UK’s lack of enthusiasm for space exploration is a painful frustration for those of us who grew up on a diet of Dan Dare, Thunderbirds, Hugh Walters’ books, Captain Condor even! We were regularly watching Gemini and Apollo missions on the box, launching supersonic passenger planes, and to youthful minds it seemed…
Stargazing Live is returning to UK television screens next Tuesday for another four episodes of sink-or-swim exploration of the night sky. And if cloud cover puts the mockers on actual stargazing, hosts Brian Cox and Dara O’Briain will also be linking up with astronaut Tim Peake for a chat about life onboard the…
Today the BBC future has unveiled an interactive website about the construction of the International Space Station, as well as some fun facts. Sometimes it’s almost hard to believe it’s been 17 years (1998) from the original module was successfully completed. I can only hope the spirit of international community that…
Tuesday will mark the 171st of the planned 342 days for NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko to spend on the International Space Station as the One Year Crew. NASA released a video to observe the milestone with Billy Dee Williams narrating.
Currently there are nine occupants of the International Space Station after a Soyuz craft docked this morning. The nine occupants represent five different countries with four Russians, two Americans and one each from Denmark, Japan and Kazakhstan.
Earlier today the three NASA/JAXA astronauts on the International Space Station tried samples of the red romaine lettuce grown in the Veggie plant growth system on the station. The Russian cosmonauts were occupied with a spacewalk at the time and will try the lettuce later.
Astronaut Terry Virts has been on the International Space Station since November of last year but it wasn’t until now that he was able to get this shot.
Here are a couple of videos released last week by the European Space Agency with Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti explaining personal hygiene and toilet use on the International Space Station.
Astronaut Scott Kelly shared a photo of his Cinco de Mayo meal on the International Space Station. Ideally his twin brother should be eating a similar taco here on Earth as part of the Year in Space project but I’m pretty sure he’s not. Of course tortillas in space are nothing new.
I’m glad to see the crew of the International Space Station putting their new high definition viewscreen to good use.
Maybe he can open a hair salon...in space!
Possibly the coolest view of the International Space Station I've seen taken during today's solar eclipse.
Flight Engineers Elena Serova and Samantha Cristoforetti, both the first women stationed on the International Space Station from their respective countries, pose for a photo.
