The Exp 61 crew is in final preps before Friday’s spacewalk while setting up research hardware for next week's space biology activities. Got questions? #AskNASA Read more... https://go.nasa.gov/348EVcL
.@BoeingSpace’s CST-100 Starliner has started its journey to SLC-41! Once it arrives, the spacecraft will be stacked on top an Atlas V rocket for final processing ahead of the Orbital Flight Test launch. https://go.nasa.gov/2KGDcUd
#Starliner was moved to the Space Launch Complex 41 Vertical Integration Facility this morning. Later today the spacecraft will be stacked on top of an Atlas V rocket for final processing ahead of the launch. It's getting close to the targeted Dec. 17 uncrewed test flight! https://twitter.com/BoeingSpace/status/1197470038246281217
We'll answer your #AskNASA questions live on @NASA TV this Friday starting at 6:50am ET when @AstroDrewMorgan and @Astro_Luca go on a spacewalk to repair a cosmic particle detector searching for evidence of dark matter and antimatter. https://nasa.gov/live
A recent study has found that artificial lighting at night affects the behavior of urban wildlife.🏙️🦝
The research mapped light levels in the city of Chicago, using publicly available images of Earth taken by astronauts from the @Space_Station.

Morning views on @Space_Station. Although we're only ~250 miles closer to the Moon than you are, we can see it more clearly since it's not obscured by the Earth’s atmosphere. We at @NASA are celebrating the #Apollo50th anniversaries & looking forward to our return there! #Artemis
The crew researched disease therapies, installed an artificial gravity incubator and sequenced DNA today all while prepping for this Friday's spacewalk. Read more... https://go.nasa.gov/2KC8Wtp
A spacewalk on the International @Space_Station is a day-long activity for the astronauts, but there are milestones that mark when the event officially begins and ends. Do you know what marks the conclusion of a spacewalk in U.S. spacesuits? #TuesdayTrivia
Today, the Exp 61 crew researched space agriculture and disease therapies while getting ready for the next cosmic repair spacewalk. Read more... https://go.nasa.gov/2KCqdTD
It’s time to talk science! ⚛️
On Wednesday @NASA will hold a media telecon to connect reporters with researchers sending their #science to the @Space_Station on @SpaceX’s next commercial resupply launch.

.@astro_luca & I trained for several months at @NASA_Johnson to perform these 4 spacewalks. We used a variety of ways to simulate repairs: a large pool called the Neutral Buoyancy Lab, a suspension harness called ARGOS & virtual reality. We're well prepared for this complex task!
Space gardens! 🌱 NASA's Human Research Program studies how crops grown in space may provide behavioral health benefits to the astronauts. ”Veggie” aims to supply safe, nutritious food and improved mood for astronauts on deep space missions. https://www.nasa.gov/feature/space-life-and-physical-sciences-research-and-applications-spacex-16-experimentspayloads
The Exp 61 crew researched advanced tech and space biology today while readying to deploy small satellites by midweek. Read more... https://go.nasa.gov/2O0uG4D
On 11/20 we will hold a telecon to discuss research launching to @Space_Station including:
🔥A study analyzing flame behavior in confined spaces
⚛️A new tool for the Cold Atom Lab
🌱A study analyzing barely seeds in microgravity

What is the @Space_Station? 🛰️
Can I see it from Earth? 🌎
What time zone does it run on? ⏰
Watch the next #AskNASA episode w/ Jacob Keaton, as he answers your questions about our orbiting lab: https://go.nasa.gov/37geMdU
Unfathomable science & teamwork. The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer is an instrument seeking to unlock the mystery of dark matter. To keep it running, a world of scientists, engineers & astronauts have been working for years to design a complex repair job. https://go.nasa.gov/2KssRLx
Two astronauts completed the first in a series of complex spacewalks to repair a particle physics experiment. Also, samples that had been exposed to space in an airlock were retrieved for analysis. #SpaceToGround
