  1. Space Station Defies Humans, Launches Satellites Without Permission Robert Sorokanich September 5, 2014 "The International Space Station has a cannon that launches tiny CubeSat microsatellites into orbit. Most of the time, those launches are triggered by human scientists on board or back on Earth. But this week, the ISS launched two CubeSats entirely on its own. This is how the uprising begins. Yes, on Thursday night, ISS commander Steve Swanson was loading blood samples into a freezer when he noticed the doors of the CubeSat launcher were open. Swanson alerted mission control in Houston, which confirmed that two CubeSats had been inadvertently released. It's not the first time this has happened: A NASA status report shows that two other CubeSats were unintentionally released on August 23rd. That means that, of the 12 CubeSats launched into orbit so far, one-third of them got impatient waiting for permission, and just launched themselves. The CubeSats, made by Planet Labs, are tiny devices roughly the size of a well-stuffed foot-long cheesesteak. The plan is to launch 100 of the baby satellites into orbit to gather detailed, real-time imagery of the Earth below and make it available to anyone on the internet. You can read tons more about Planet Labs' tiny satellite program here." snip http://gizmodo.com/space-station-defies-humans-launches-satellites-withou-1631443009

  3. First Vine Video from Space Posted by NASA Astronaut Megan Gannon June 9, 2014 "An astronaut in space has just taken the social video-sharing Vine app into the final frontier. NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman created a 6-second time-lapse video[/size] with the mobile app Vine, showing a never-setting sun from 240 miles (386 kilometers) above Earth on the International Space Station. He shared the clip with the world on June 6. "1st Vine from space! Single Earth orbit. Sun never sets flying parallel w/terminator line," Wiseman wrote in a message that accompanied the video. [Amazing Space Photos by NASA Astronaut Reid Wiseman] Because the crewmembers aboard the space station travel[/size] around Earth at 17,500 miles per hour (28,000 kilometers per hour) every 92 minutes, they might see up to 16 sunrises and sunsets each day. But the sun never seems to rise or set when the station is aligned with the terminator line — the boundary where the darkness of night meets the sunlight of dusk and dawn." snip http://www.space.com/26174-first-vine-video-from-space-astronaut.html Video on the site or this one here from you tube Astronaut releases first Vine video from space CBS This Morning Published on Jun 7, 2014 NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman sent the first Vine video from earth orbit out to his Twitter followers. The brief time-lapse video showed an entire trip around the earth from the International Space Station. Anthony Mason reports.
  4. Russia moves to prohibit the U.S. from using the ISS in 2020 May 13, 2014 "Russia's ongoing feud with the United States has hit new heights — literally. In retaliation for the sanctions the U.S. imposed on Russia during the Ukraine crisis, the country said it won't allow the U.S. use the International Space Station after 2020. The measures, which were announced today by Russia's deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, also prohibit the U.S. from using the ISS's rocket engines to launch new satellites. Although the space station is manned by a Russian and American crew, the only way to reach it is by using Russia's Soyuz spaceships." snip http://theweek.com/speedreads/index/261512/speedreads-russia-said-its-going-to-prohibit-the-us-from-using-the-iss-in-2020 Russia casts doubt on US' future with the ISS over Ukraine sanctions May 13, 2014 "The head of Russia’s space program says Moscow will reject the United States’ request to use the International Space Station beyond 2020 – the latest twist in a standoff between the two countries over the ongoing crisis in Ukraine. Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, who leads Russia’s defense industry, made the announcement Tuesday. He also said Russia will block Washington from using Russian-made rocket engines to launch military satellites, according to Reuters. The moves come after the U.S. slapped sanctions on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s allies -- who include Rogozin -- for Russia's intervention in Ukraine. The U.S. also denied export licenses for high-tech items that could aid Russia’s military. "These sanctions are out of place and inappropriate," Rogozin said at a news conference Tuesday. "We have enough of our own problems." Russia supplies NK-33 and RD-180 rocket engines to the U.S. "We are ready to deliver these engines but on one condition -- that they will not be used to launch military satellites," Rogozin said. A Kremlin-controlled firm that Rogozin oversees produces and supplies the RD-180 engine to American defense contractors." snip http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/05/13/russia-casts-doubt-on-us-future-with-iss-over-ukraine-sanctions/
  5. I'm not sure if this has been posted yet. Here's a link to the current 24/7 HD camera feed from the ISS. There are 4 cameras trained on Earth at all times. I think we will all enjoy seeing what we can see here! Note that the view switches periodically. Sometimes its a close-up Earth. Sometimes it gives a perspective of Earth with "space" in the background. http://www.ustream.tv/channel/17074538 Eyes on Earth: The ISS HD Earth Viewing Experiment May 5, 2014 | by Lisa Winter One of the latest missions from the ISS is kind of amazing. The High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV) experiment consists of four cameras that have been attached outside of the ISS. Though temperature is controlled, the cameras are exposed to the radiation from the sun, which will allow astronauts to understand how radiation affects the instruments. The experiment is being run in conjunction with High Schools United with NASA to Create Hardware (HUNCH) program that serves as outreach for students 9-12. Students participating in this program also helped design some aspects of the camera. The cameras point down at Earth at all times, which makes for some breathtaking images. The feed will sometimes go down as the signal switches between the cameras, and it is hard to see when the ISS is on the dark side of the planet. If the cameras are down, the screen will be grey. If the feed is down, feel free to take a look at some of the “best of” footage taken by the cameras so far: Read more at http://www.iflscience.com/space/eyes-earth-iss-hd-earth-viewing-experiment#bkhHzXjjOyXO0KQM.99

    Can YOU spot the ISS?

    Can YOU spot the ISS? Incredible images show the space station crossing the MOON April 16, 2014 Jonathan O'Callagan Photographer Andy Smith snapped these incredible shots yesterday He was trying to get a photo of the so-called 'blood moon' from England But instead he found the International Space Station in his images The tiny silhouette of the ISS can be seen against the enormity of the moon "Seeing the International Space Station from Earth isn’t easy. The football pitch-sized station orbits at a height of 260 miles (420km), appearing as small as a distant star when we gaze at the night sky. But photographer Andy Smith has captured incredible images that show the station’s silhouette crossing the moon during its orbit of Earth." Can you see it? While looking to photograph the pink moon expected to be seen in the skies over England, photographer Andy Smith caught the International Space Station (slightly down and right from the middle) passing in front of the full moon) You might think the ISS is quite far above the surface of Earth. But compared to the moon, its just a stone’s throw away. The moon is on average about 239,000 miles (384,000 kilometers) from our planet, over 900 times further than the ISS." snip more pictures and video at link http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2605918/Can-YOU-spot-ISS-Incredible-images-space-station-crossing-MOON.html

  8. ISS Docking Live Stream: Watch Expedition 39 Crew Arrive At The International Space Station After Two Days In Space [VIDEO] Charles Poladian March 27, 2014 "The Expedition 39 crew launched to the International Space Station, aboard the Soyuz TMA-12M spacecraft, on Tuesday. NASA will provide a live stream of the ISS docking as well as the hatch opening. The coverage begins at 7 p.m. EDT. The Soyuz TMA-12M launched on Tuesday but a failed thruster burn delayed the rendezvous until Thursday. NASA/Bill Ingalls A technical glitch caused a delay and the trio of astronauts had to spend two days in space but will arrive at the ISS on Thursday. NASA astronaut Steve Swanson and cosmonauts Oleg Artemyev and Alexander Skvortsov boarded the Soyuz spacecraft and took flight from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, located in Kazakhstan, at 5:17 p.m. EDT. The crew was expected to dock at the ISS at 11:04 p.m. EDT and the trio would meet their fellow crew members at 12:45 a.m. EDT. snip NASA says the crew is completing the 34-orbit rendezvous and will arrive at the ISS at 7:58 p.m. EDT on Thursday. The three astronauts currently aboard the ISS, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) astronaut Koichi Wakata, NASA astronaut Rick Mastracchio and cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin adjusted their schedule and performed maintenance and scientific experiments through the day. The current ISS crew members will greet the new Expedition 39 crew at the hatch opening at 10:40 p.m. EDT., reports NASA. The NASA live stream of the ISS docking procedure can be viewed below. The coverage will begin at 7 p.m. EDT and the Soyuz spacecraft will arrive at the space station at 7:58 p.m. EDT.

  9. December 12, 2013 "THE International Space Station has been forced to shut down many of its systems after a coolant leak. NASA has confirmed the station is having problems with its coolant system due to a faulty valves. Early reports of the difficulties appeared in tweets from the station's crew and support staff. The crew are struggling to restore pressure to the coolant system that keeps the vital systems, including life-support, at a regular temperature. This can vary wildly depending on whether the space station is in sunlight or in the Earth's shadow. While not presenting an immediate threat to the station's crew, it can be serious if unsolved. Some of the space stations' systems have been shut down in order to reduce the strain on the temperature control equipment. Others have been re-routed to the working cooling system. NASA spokesman Josh Byerly told NBC that one of the station's two cooling loops, known as Loop-A, shut down due to an anomalous temperature imbalance. NASA had to urgently reroute the coolant systems to prioritise life support systems, electrical systems and science experiments. "The crew was never in any danger," Byerly said. "They worked to keep the freezers going. ... They're fine for the near future." A NASA statement says the pump module on one of the space station's two cooling loops which circulates ammonia outside the station to keep equipment cool automatically shut down when it reached pre-set temperature limits." "The flight control teams worked to get the cooling loop back up and running, and they suspect a flow control valve actually inside the pump itself might not be functioning correctly," it reads. "At no time was the crew or the station itself in any danger." As a precaution, the three Russians, two Americans and one Japanese crew members aboard shut down some operating systems to reduce the power load. The crew is preparing for bed as ground teams collect more data and consider what repairs and further trouble-shooting may be required.." snip http://www.news.com.au/technology/science/international-space-station-coolant-leak-causes-emergency-shut-down/story-fnjwlcze-1226781205918 tx Reddwolf
