SpaceX has notched up another important victory in its march toward fully reusable rocketry and spacecraft, with the safe return of its Dragon spacecraft following a recent stint docked at the International Space Station (ISS). Its safe splashdown in the Pacific Ocean marks completion of that particular spacecraft's second mission to the station, following its inaugural visit in 2015...Contin
Space may be big, really big, but Earth orbit is getting a bit crowded as space debris accumulates and threatens operational spacecraft. Riding aboard the last Dragon cargo mission to the International Space Station was part of the answer to this problem. NASA's Space Debris Sensor (SDS) will be installed on the outside of the station, where it will spend the next two to three years monitorin
Astronaut photographers on the International Space Station have dazzled us for years with eye-popping photos and videos shot from orbit. To learn more behind-the-scenes details of photography on the space station, photographer Jared Polin interviewed NASA astronaut Randy Bresnik. In the 21-minute interview above, Bresnik discusses everything from his favorite camera equipment onboard the ISS to t
SpaceX has been carrying supplies to the International Space Station (ISS) for more than five years, but the company achieved something special with its latest visit, completing the mission using a refurbished Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft together for the first time. ..Continue Reading SpaceX resupplies the ISS with recycled rocket and spacecraft for the first timeCategory: SpaceTags
Earlier this year, NASA ordered 53 unmodified Nikon D5 DSLR cameras. Now, 10 of them have just landed at the International Space Station as part of the OA-8 Space Station Resupply.The cameras will be used in orbit for 12 to 18 months. Only the camera bodies have been sent up to the ISS — instead of shipping brand new lenses, NASA will be reusing lenses and accessories already on the ISS tha
To experience life in and around the International Space Station (ISS) requires years of astronaut training, but technology does continue to bring us closer to the experience. The latest example is a 360-degree video, the first ever shot in outer space, that places the viewer in the thick of the action as Russian cosmonauts carry out a spacewalk...Continue Reading Step outside the ISS in firs
NASA's relationship with Nikon is as strong as ever, judging by the fact that the space agency just placed a massive order for 53 Nikon D5 DSLRs.According to Nikon, NASA ordered the cameras as-is (no hardware modifications) and plans to use them for photography on the International Space Station, as well as astronaut training on Earth. The agency might make some changes down the line, but for now
The International Space Station, with a crew of six onboard, is seen in silhouette as it transits the Sun at roughly five miles per second during a partial solar eclipse on Aug. 21, 2017 near Banner, Wyoming. Photo credit: NASA/Joel KowskyPlenty of people were pointing their cameras up at the solar eclipse today, but leave it to NASA to capture a little something extra. From his vantage point in
As it stands, crew aboard the Japanese module Kibo on the International Space Station spend around 10 percent of their time capturing photos and video. But they may soon find themselves with a little more spare time, thanks to a cute autonomous drone that has arrived to lighten the load...Continue Reading Japan's floating space drone offers a window into the ISSCategory: SpaceTags: Ca
SpaceX managed another line in the history book today as a refurbished Dragon cargo ship set off to revisit the International Space Station (ISS). Part of the Commercial Resupply Services mission (CRS-11), the Dragon lifted off atop a Falcon 9 booster at 5:07 pm EDT (21:07 GMT) from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Florida.
