(1 Aug. 2013) — NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg, Expedition 36 flight engineer, works with the InSPACE-3 experiment in the Microgravity Science Glovebox (MSG) in the Destiny laboratory of the International Space Station. InSPACE-3 applies different magnetic fields to vials of colloids, or liquids with microscopic particles, and observes how fluids can behave like a solid. Results may improve the strength and design of materials for stronger buildings and bridges.

Nyberg doing SCIENCE! on the space station.

How an Astronaut Faced a Drowning Hazard… in Space

There are few fears that can top the fear of drowning. Actually, there is. The fear of drowning in space. And that fear was a very real and terrifying possibility for Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano during what should have been a “routine” extravehicular activity (EVA) earlier this month. Now, his spacewalking partner NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy explains what happened.

Spacewalk Aborted When Water Fills Astronaut’s Helmet

A planned six-hour spacewalk outside the International Space Station came to a dramatic and abrupt end on Tuesday when water started building up inside the helmet of Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano.

Parmitano and NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy were less than an hour into their spacewalk, their second in a week, when Parmitano reported that his head felt wet.

“My head is really wet and I have a feeling it’s increasing,” Parmitano reported to ground control teams at the Johnson Space Center in Houston.

The cause of the leak was not immediately known.

Space Station Crew Prepare for Emergency Spacewalk
After the discovery of a leak of ammonia coolant supplying one of the International Space Station solar arrays on Thursday, NASA managers have decided to plan for an unscheduled spacewalk on Saturday to repair the problem. The final decision about whether to go ahead with the extravehicular activity will be made late on Friday. Read more.
NASA has also released a video showing the ammonia flakes drifting into space.

Dark Matter Found? Orbital Experiment Detects Hints

Around 400,000 positron detections have been confirmed in this first batch of data — positrons that are of energies consistent with the signature of dark matter annihilation.


I have nothing much to add except to say… this is pure squeezed awesomejuice!
