The International Space Station

  • 117 Pins

SpaceX’s Dragon cargo vehicle journeyed over land and water, night and day on its 2-day trip to deliver more than 2 tons of science and supplies for the crew on the International Space Station. Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti guided the Canadarm2 and grappled the Dragon as it floated just 10 meters away from the space station at about 6:55 ET this morning. The crew will open the hatches to Dragon Saturday morning and begin 5 weeks of cargo transfer activities. Aside from crew supplies, Dragon brought new science gear including items for the Rodent Research-2 experiment and the station’s first espresso machine, the ISSpresso, which will provide espresso, tea, consommé and other hot beverages. #spacestation #NASA #science #coffee #SpaceX #Dragon #space #ISS

Between 1987 and 1999, four Russian cosmonauts spent a year or more consecutively in space. Now, for the first time, an American astronaut, @StationCDRKelly, will be joining that exclusive club, as he and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko inhabit the station for a year. The crew launches to the space station at 3:42 p.m. ET this Friday. Learn more: www.nasa.gov/oneyear #YearInSpace #NASA #Space #milestone #JourneyToMars

Astronauts Barry Wilmore (left) and Terry Virts are spacewalking today to rig cables on the International Space Station. The cable work will prepare the orbital lab for a pair of International Docking Adapters (IDAs) to be delivered later this year on two SpaceX Dragon missions. The IDAs will enable future commercial vehicles from Boeing and SpaceX to dock to the space station. #NASA #InternationalSpaceStation #Astronaut #SpaceX #Dragon #CommercialCrew #Boeing #ISS #IDA #spacewalk #ootw #outofthisworld
