Scientists are working hard to better understand why vision changes occur for some astronauts in microgravity, while continuously developing strategies to counter those changes.
To date, over 4 million photos taken by humans from space have been collected. These photographs are taken for many purposes, from artistic to the scientific, and help to show how our planet changes over time.
T2 is one of the station’s treadmill. AR is augmented reality. And NASA is using its treadmill to test how crew members can use AR to make repairs in space.
A cornucopia of species bring the interior of the station to life, and also bring a plethora of scientific knowledge contributing to humans thriving both on Earth and beyond the edge of our planet.
The new ISS Roll Out Solar Arrays (iROSA) being installed on the space station are providing power to the station with improved efficiency. ROSA technology will also help power the Gateway lunar outpost, and the DART mission as it makes its way to the Didymos asteroid system.
The International Space Station is a one-of-a-kind laboratory, allowing for experiments in microgravity conditions that couldn’t be duplicated on Earth. It has also proven to have the capacity to serve as an incubator for new business, accelerating the development of a new space economy in low-... Read More
Colorful bursts of energy above thunderstorms called transient luminous events can be observed from the International Space Station. Instruments on the station are helping scientists study these particle outbursts, which may prove useful to better understand our climate, weather, and the behaviors... Read More
The International Space Station is well known as an orbiting laboratory, but during the past decade the station has also served a very different role - that of being a business incubator. One of its star products is the CubeSat.
The commercialization of low-Earth orbit is enabling a new market in space, while aiding NASA in its mission of exploration and discovery.
Earth observing instruments on the space station along with photography from crew members serve to keep a multifunctional eye on our home planet.
Scientists are using AMS-02 on the Space Station to study fundamental particles originating from sources up to billions of light years away. These particles may hold the key to understanding both the composition and history of our universe.
The International Space Station provides the only microgravity environment in which we can test technologies critical to our deep-space exploration in the near and far-term future.
AMS-02 is helping scientists investigate many fundamental physics questions from its place on the space station. Astronauts are conducting a series of space walks to perform repairs and extend the life of the observatory.
One of the largest human-made permanent magnets in space resides on the International Space Station (ISS), and it’s helping scientists better understand the origins of our universe. The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02) is an observatory that is collecting data from measurements of cosmic rays,... Read More
