    • Experimental Fuel Hardware, Astrophysics and Life Science Fill Crew Day Tue, 19 Feb 2019 22:32:28 +0000
      The International Space Station is hosting a robotic experiment that may help enable and refuel future missions to the moon and Mars. The Expedition 58 crew installed that hardware today then worked on a variety of life science, astrophysics and combustion science gear. The Robotic Refueling Mission-3 (RRM3) experiment will demonstrate transferring and storing fuels …
    • Time Perception Studies, Free-Flying Robotics on Station Schedule Fri, 15 Feb 2019 16:08:18 +0000
      The Expedition 58 crew is helping scientists today understand how astronauts perceive time and orient themselves when living in space. The orbital residents are also working on CubeSat and free-flying robotics hardware aboard the International Space Station. Astronauts Anne McClain and David Saint-Jacques wore virtual reality gear for the Time Perception experiment sponsored by the …
    • Research into How Space Impacts Humans and Physics Continues Thu, 14 Feb 2019 16:51:46 +0000
      The three residents onboard the International Space Station today worked with a diverse array of science hardware. The trio continues to explore what living in space is doing to their bodies and helped scientists promote healthier humans in space and on Earth. Astronauts have reported increased head and eye pressure during long-duration space missions. The …
    • Crew Studies Human Body and Checks Cooling Systems Wed, 13 Feb 2019 17:47:58 +0000
      Wednesday saw the Expedition 58 crew explore the inner workings of the human body in space and maintain cooling systems aboard the International Space Station. NASA astronaut Anne McClain spent all day setting up cooling gear inside the U.S. Destiny lab module and Japan’s Kibo lab module. She drained and refilled water pumps inside the …
    • Exercise Research and Biology Hardware Checks Aboard Orbital Lab Tue, 12 Feb 2019 18:21:58 +0000
      The Expedition 58 crew explored space exercise and checked out biology hardware today aboard the International Space Station. The space residents supplemented their research activities and kept the orbital lab systems in tip-top shape. Daily exercise in space is important so astronauts can fight muscle and bone loss caused by living in weightlessness. Doctors are …
    • Spacesuits, Life Science and Robotic Assistant Work Start the Week Mon, 11 Feb 2019 20:31:15 +0000
      Spacesuit work, robotic assistants as well as exercise and biology studies took up the majority of the Expedition 58 crew’s schedule on Monday. The rest of February at the International Space Station will be primarily science work before March ramps up with crew and cargo missions and spacewalks. Flight Engineer Anne McClain of NASA opened …
    • Astronauts Release U.S. Spacecraft from Station Fri, 08 Feb 2019 16:29:00 +0000
      Northrop Grumman’s Cygnus spacecraft was released from the Canadarm2 at 11:16 a.m. EST and has departed the International Space Station. After an extended mission to deploy several CubeSats in multiple orbits, Cygnus is scheduled to be deorbited on Feb. 25 to enter the Earth’s atmosphere and burn up harmlessly over the Pacific Ocean. Expedition 58 …
    • Cygnus Ready for Friday Departure and CubeSat Deployments Thu, 07 Feb 2019 17:06:48 +0000
      Northrop Grumman’s Cygnus space freighter is just a day away from completing its tenth mission to the International Space Station. The Expedition 58 crew is training today for Cygnus’ robotic release on Friday and preparing it for one more mission afterward. Cygnus is in the grips of the Canadarm2 robotic arm today still attached to …
    • Mind and Body Studies as Crew Finalizes Cygnus Packing Wed, 06 Feb 2019 17:47:03 +0000
      The astronauts onboard the International Space Station continued exploring today how living in space affects their minds and bodies. The Expedition 58 crew also researched fluid physics and prepared a resupply ship for its departure. Anne McClain of NASA collected blood and urine samples this morning for the Repository physiology study. She spun the samples in …
