#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

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

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

.@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!

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
