NASA1,491,987Fifty years ago, President John Kennedy challenged us to go to the moon within the decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard. As we remember Neil Armstrong this week – the man who, with a single step realized the hopes of a president, this nation and the world – we are recognizing the extraordinary achievements of the past five decades achieved by our nation's space agency and where the passion to explore will lead us in the future. President Barack Obama has set NASA on course toward an asteroid and to send humans to Mars within the next two decades. This goal is not without notable challenges, but using the knowledge, expertise and American ingenuity that has been the trademark of NASA scientists and engineers for the last half-century, NASA continues to make possible that which is seemingly impossible. At 3:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, September 12, NASA astronauts, scientists and engineers will hold a Google+ Hangout to talk about NASA's rich history of innovation and ingenuity and talk about NASA's future goals for scientific discovery and human spaceflight.During the event, we'll be joined by:- Dan Dumbacher, Deputy Associate Administrator for Exploration Systems Development in NASA's Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate. He is the former Director of Engineering at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. Previously, he was the deputy director of safety and mission assurance at Marshall.- Ron Garan, astronaut who lived and worked aboard the International Space Station. He has been in space for 178 days and has conducted four spacewalks.- John Grunsfeld, Associate Administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate. He is an astronaut and researcher in high energy astrophysics, cosmic ray physics, and in the emerging field of exoplanet studies. He was also the deputy director of the Space Telescope Science Institute, managing the science program for the Hubble Space Telescope and the forthcoming James Webb Space Telescope.- Michael Lopez-Alegria, the President of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation. He is a former Naval Aviator and test pilot (Capt., U.S. Navy, Ret.), NASA astronaut and International Space Station (ISS) commander.To join the event, visit http://plus.google.com/+NASA at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Ask your questions of the group in the comments below or using hashtag #askNASA :50 Years Later: NASA Discusses Using Innovation and Ingenuity to do Big Things2012-09-12 21:00:00651G+

Hello from Boston and the National Science Teacher Association 2014 Conference.

Wow, look what I got to see! This is an Eurasian Eagle-owl. They combine fast and powerful flights with shallow wing beats and long, fast glides. They also soar on updrafts, displaying a type of flight similar to that of soaring hawks like the Red-tailed Hawk. Eurasian Eagle-owls are among the world's largest owls and their pumpkin orange eyes and feathery ear tufts make them one of the most striking owls in the world. 

Their wingspan is between 5-6 feet and they are about 2 1/2 feet long, weighting up to 9 lbs. Their scientific name is Bubo Bubo! LOL

Hello from Denmark. Another great day here and I will tell you a little more about it soon.

I came across this funny comic about the ebook vs the traditional book. It's cute. The real point of the story is - reading is not only fun, but very important and helps develop many attributes in a child.

Oh, and here are some great STEM reading (and game) resources. This might come in handy over the summer?!

Hello from the beautiful city of Copenhagen in Denmark. I am here for the ESOF 2014 meeting. 

EuroScience Open Forum – is the biennial pan-European meeting dedicated to scientific research and innovation. At ESOF meetings leading scientists, researchers, young researchers, business people, entrepreneurs and innovators, policy makers, science and technology communicators and the general public from all over Europe discuss new discoveries and debate the direction that research is taking in the sciences, humanities and social sciences.

On Sunday we visited 3 research vessels that were docked at the Amaliehaven/Larsens Plads in Copenhagen (near the Palace). 

Aurora: Brand new resarch vessel. Aarhus University. The Nordic Food lab was doing samples and exhibits on the ship. We also got to see the high-tech lab areas and the bridge area. I put on a life jacket - safety first!Thi... more »

Aurora: Brand new resarch vessel. Aarhus University. The Nordic Food lab was doing samples and exhibits on the ship. We also got to see the high-tech lab areas and the bridge area. I put on a life jacket - safety first! This is the smallest of the 3 ships... but also most modern. I think they have 13 crew and 7 researchers at a time.

Dana: Denmark's largest reserach vessel. Built in 1919 (been refitted & updated a few times!) The Technical University of Denmark highlighted some of the research capabilities. They also showed how the ship is used to monitor types, age, and quantity of fish in the commercial fishing areas. These data are used to determine limits so that fishing will be kept sustainable. 38 bunks available for crew and research teams. 

Clupea: A German ship which also conducts fish surveys for commercial fishing sustainability in addition to research trips.

Oh, we have some anniversary today! On June 16, 1963 the first woman launched to space; Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova. 

She was on the Vostok 5 mission which launched on June 16, 1963, and orbited the Earth 48 times. The flight lasted almost 3 days (=70.8 hours). During her space mission, Tereshkova's radio call name was "Chaika," which means "seagull" in Russian.

The Vostok 5 spacecraft was recovered on June 19, 1963, in the Soviet Union. Tereshkova had parachuted from the spacecraft after earth's atmospheric re-entry; she landed about 380 miles northeast of Karaganda, Kazakhstan. Valentina Tereshkova was given the title "Hero of the Soviet Union," received the Order of Lenin, and was honored with the United Nations Gold Medal of Peace. She never flew in space again.

Valentina Tereshkova was given the title "Hero of the Soviet Union," received the Order of Lenin, and was honored with the United Nations Gold Medal of Peace. She never flew in space again.

Tereshkova had been an expert in parachuting and a factory worker before she wrote to the Soviet space program, volunteering her service. She and the other candidates to be in the first woman in space were given extensive testing and interviews (beginning in December 1961). Tereshkova and Tatyana Torchillova were chosen in May 1963, to train for the Vostok 6 flight. Tereshkova was the final choice.

On November 3, 1963, Tereshkova married another cosmonaut (Andrian Nikolayev, who also went into space). They had a daughter, Elena Andrionovna, who was born in 1964; Elena (now a doctor in Russia) was the first child born to parents who both went into space. Tereshkova went on to graduate from the Zhuykosky Air Force Engineering Academy in 1969, and in 1976, earned a degree in Technical Science.___

Now that Astro Reid, Alex and Maxim are on Station, let's try to catch a flyover. This week will provide some great flyovers over the US. And why not challenge yourself and take a long-exposure image with perhaps an iconic background?

My friends at Visual-Aerials have started to spread the word about ‪#‎SpotTheStation‬ and together with NASA we all would like to capture some amazing shots, share them with the world -- and most importantly, share them with the crew on station. So when (and if...) they feel homesick up there, they can look at some amazing pictures of what they look like zipping by from down here on Earth.

More information, including tips & tricks on how to spot the station and capture it, go here:

Hello from Pasadena and Spacefest! We are having a blast.
Speaking of blast - NASA's latest comic has just been released and it features NASA Solar Dynamics Observatory (Little SDO) and yours truly! Can you find my various cameo appearances?

The Sun and the Water Cycle - it follows along with sisters Marisol and Sofia as they discover that without the Sun, there would be no water cycle; that means no clouds, no rain - no weather!
Educators and parents (who are also educators) - you can download the book here:

L-204: Logbook

Taking a break from my preparation work for next week's big exam, I'd like to share with you something that I'm really excited about: the partnership between my mission to ISS, Futura, and WeFly! Team.

WeFly! is a very special aerobatic team, flying on ultralight machines: two out of the three pilots have a disability, which requires them to use a wheelchair during daily life and, in the cockpit, to use specially modified commands that allow full control of the aircraft by use of hands only.

I had the privilege of meeting Alessandro, Marco and Erich about 7 years ago. In this short video I tell that story:
Samantha Cristoforetti and WeFly Team together for the disabled people

Saying my good-byes to ESOC (European Space Operations Center) at the European Space Agency in Darmstadt, Germany. 

Since its creation in 1967, ESOC, located in Darmstadt, Germany, has planned missions, operated more than 60 satellites and ensured that spacecraft meet their mission objectives. The mandate of ESOC is to conduct mission operations for ESA satellites and to establish, operate and maintain the necessary ground-segment infrastructure.

Next stop - seeing my wonderful family friends "The Neumanns"!

This is for my German speaking friends! Great interview of Alexander Gerst, German Astronaut and launching to the space station in just a little over 40 days. Even more cool, my dear friend (who I will soon see again) Eico Neumann got one of his questions answered. And it was a good one too... special appearance by +Samantha Cristoforetti - she flies almost as graceful as yours truly (in zero-G that is!). 

And Alex is taking a mouse mascot with him to the ISS! He and Reid Wiseman rock. They really do.

Today was an incredible day here in Rome. I got to visit the Vatican Observatory. Wow!

In its historical roots the Vatican Observatory is one of the oldest astronomical institutions in the world. The first foreshadowing of the Observatory can be traced to Pope Gregory XIII and the constitution of a committee to study the scientific data and implications involved in the reform of the Julian calendar in use since 45 B.C. That calendar contained a tiny error in determining the length of the year, and by the late 1500s the error had grown large enough to make timing of Church holy days out of sync with their respective seasons. The committee working on the project included Fr. Christoph Clavius, a Jesuit mathematician from the Roman College, who expounded and explained the reform of the calendar.

The staff of the Vatican Observatory spend a great deal of their time on research projects with colleagues around the world. Also during the year they travel internationally attending conferences and delivering presentations to over 5,000 people in gatherings that include their esteemed colleagues or local parish groups and school children.

Ciao from Rome! We have arrived, already done some sightseeing and now we are doing the ‪#‎Lucatweetup‬ here with the wonderful people from the +European Space Agency, ESA.

My buddy Daniel Scuka is ready and gives the thumb up!
ESRIN, known as the ESA Centre for Earth Observation, is one of the five ESA specialised centres situated in Europe. Located in Frascati, a small town 20 km south of Rome in Italy, ESRIN was established in 1966 and first began acquiring data from environmental satellites in the 1970s.

Earth Observation data has grown in importance as more and more international and national agencies recognise the many uses to which it can be put. Satellites for Earth observation keep a constant watch over the Earth and the data they provide help to safeguard the planet in which we live.

My buddy Daniel Scuka is ready and gives the thumb up!
ESRIN, known as the ESA Centre for Earth Observation, is one of the five ESA specialised centres situated in Europe. Located in Frascati, a small town 20 km south of Rome in Italy, ESRIN was established in 1966 and first began acquiring data from environmental satellites in the 1970s.

Earth Observation data has grown in importance as more and more international and national agencies recognise the many uses to which it can be put. Satellites for Earth observation keep a constant watch over the Earth and the data they provide help to safeguard the planet in which we live.

Since 2004, ESRIN has been the headquarters for ESA's Earth Observation activities.

And we will be spending some time with the One-And-Only-And-Too-Cool-For-A-Dry-Spacesuit Astornaut Luca Parmitano!
Luca's a very experienced pilot with the Italian air force. He was selected as one of six new ESA astronauts in 2009. He completed his first mission to the ISS – the Volare mission – as part of Expedition 36/37, in 2013, spending May-November in orbit. His second EVA, in July 2013, was aborted after just over an hour due to a malfunction in his spacesuit, which resulted in his helmet partly filling with water.

+Samantha Cristoforetti any cool places you think I should go and visit? :-)

Are you celebrating Yuri's Night on April 12? Yes, every year on this date we come together and celebrate and remember the very first spaceflight. Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin launched on April 12, 1961 and made history; the first human in space. On the very same date but 20 years later, the first Space Shuttle launched into orbit. 

Great reasons to commemorate and have fun. Find a party close by at http://yurisnight.net./ 

I have my Yuri's Night pin and t-shirt, thanks to my dear friend Angeliki Kanellopoulou!

Hello from Boston and the National Science Teacher Association 2014 Conference.

Wow, look what I got to see! This is an Eurasian Eagle-owl. They combine fast and powerful flights with shallow wing beats and long, fast glides. They also soar on updrafts, displaying a type of flight similar to that of soaring hawks like the Red-tailed Hawk. Eurasian Eagle-owls are among the world's largest owls and their pumpkin orange eyes and feathery ear tufts make them one of the most striking owls in the world. 

Their wingspan is between 5-6 feet and they are about 2 1/2 feet long, weighting up to 9 lbs. Their scientific name is Bubo Bubo! LOL

Happy April 1st! We all know what day is today, right?

So, I came across this great April Fools joke and I wanted to share it with you and give you my thoughts on it. It's from +Southwest Airlines and their latest destination; Mars!

Now let's review this and allow me to give you my suggestions.

When you book your flight with SWA from Earth to Mars, don't fly before July 27, 2018. Why? Well, that's because we will be much closer to Mars that day, then let's say next week.

On April 8, 2014 we will be 57.5 million miles away from Mars. But on July, 2018 we will only be 35.8 million miles away.

Why is that? Well, planets don't orbit the Sun in a circular orbit. They orbit in an ellipse one. That is why in January Earth is closest to the Sun and in July Earth is the furthest away from our Star. The difference is a good 3.1 million... more »

On April 8, 2014 we will be 57.5 million miles away from Mars. But on July, 2018 we will only be 35.8 million miles away.

Why is that? Well, planets don't orbit the Sun in a circular orbit. They orbit in an ellipse one. That is why in January Earth is closest to the Sun and in July Earth is the furthest away from our Star. The difference is a good 3.1 million miles. So no change.

So the shortest distance from Earth to Mars is when both planets are on the same side of the Sun. And not only that. This should be when Earth is the farthest away from the Sun (aphelion) and Mars is the closest to the Sun in its orbit (perihelion). Remember, Earth is the "3rd Rock" from the Sun and Mars is the 4th. So, that's why on July 27, 2018 we will be relatively close to Mars.

Ok, now let's say you book your vacation, leaving towards the end of July 2018. How long should you book your vacation for?

Let's work with round numbers to make it a little easier. It will be a 36,000,000 miles one-way trip to Mars. Southwest Airline's fleet consists of Boeing 737. Their latest model is the 737-800. It has a cruising speed of approx. 600 miles per hour. Not taking stops into consideration, the flight time would be 60,000 hours (or 2,500 days or almost 7 years).

Now let's do take the re-fuling into consideration and the fact that the Boeing 737-800 series has a range of approx. 3,600 miles on a full tank. So the pilot would have to make 10,000 stops between Earth and Mars and each time fill up the airplane with almost 6,900 gallons of fuel. That's 69,000,000 gallons of fuel just to get to Mars.

Oh, and let's say one gallon of jet fuel costs $3, then the cost of fuel alone would be $207,000,000. There are 189 passengers on board the 737-800 - that's $1,095,000 per passenger in fuel cost.

So jump on this $9,999 deal Southwest is offering. Just make sure you tell your boss you will be gone for some time...

I will be seeing Janelle and many other teacher friends next week at NSTA in Boston. Are you ready Jennifer Cheesman, Kaci Pilcher Heins and Ljo Hammer?

Who else will be there?

The NSTA is the National Science Teacher Association and they have been helping science educators for close to 70 years. NSTA also helps connecting teachers with each other - in person and online! Ultimately, it is about the kids and getting them excited about STEM!

Wishing Astro Mike Fincke a very happy Birthday! He is turning something like 29 today. He has spent 381 days in Space (Exp 9, 18 and STS-134) and done over 48 hours of spacewalking! That's pretty impressive. Plus he has also spent time below surface; NEEMO2 (living and working under water) and CAVES 2012 (living and working underground). 

Send him a Birthday Tweet:@AstroIronMike 

Smooches, Spanky!

The wonderful ladies from the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago taught me how to identify animal pool properly. There was no chicken poo - we don't do that... 

The Lincoln Park Zoo is dedicated to connecting people with nature through a free, family-oriented wildlife experience.

Feces identification, also known as scat, can be a difficult task as feces change according to the animal's diet. However, by asking the right questions you can go a long way to reduce the number of available suspects.

Be safe. Droppings are dirty and germy. Avoid handling droppings without proper protection, which includes avoiding inhaling around it. Some diseases may contracted through dust borne particles.

Hello from Family Science Days. There is so much hands-on including touching and learning about the brain. Your brain is the boss of your body. It runs the show and controls just about everything you do, even when you're asleep. Not bad for something that looks like a big, wrinkly, gray sponge.

These here were not human brains (obviously, these would just roll around inside the skull..hehehe). But the human brain is a complex organ that allows us to think, move, feel, see, hear, taste, and smell. It controls our body, receives information, analyzes information, and stores information (our memories).

The brain produces electrical signals, which, together with chemical reactions, let the parts of the body communicate. Nerves send these signals throughout the body.

The brain produces electrical signals, which, together with chemical reactions, let the parts of the body communicate. Nerves send these signals throughout the body.

The average human brain weighs about 3 pounds (1300-1400 g).

At birth, the human brain weighs less than a pound (0.78-0.88 pounds or 350-400 g). As a child grows, the number of cell remains relatively stable, but the cells grow in size and the number of connections increases. The human brain reaches its full size at about 6 years of age.

The brain consists of gray matter (40%) and white matter (60%) contained within the skull. Brain cells include neurons and glial cells.

The brain has three main parts: the cerebrum, the cerebellum, and the brain stem (medulla). 

Isn't this all just so fascinating?

Today I am dedicated my thoughts to Jennifer, 6 years old and suffering from DIPG. 

"Yesterday 7 children died from cancer.
….my child wasn’t one of them.
Today 7 children will die from cancer.
My daughter is one of them.
She gifted me her first and her last breathe. . .
and so many beautiful ones in between."

A Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) is a tumor located in the pons (middle) of the brain stem. The brain stem is the bottom most portion of the brain, connecting the cerebrum with the spinal cord. The majority of brain stem tumors occur in the pons (middle brain stem) and are diffusely infiltrating, (they grow amidst the nerves), and therefore are not able to be surgically removed.

Good morning from cold CHICKaGO! Ha! 

I am here for the 2014 International Public Science Events Conference & AAAS Annual Meeting. 

Science festivals are proliferating rapidly across the globe, and growing in scope and impact in the communities where they are already taking place. It's a wonderful way to get #STEM  (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education and inspiration into the communities. 

So I will be learning what others do, hopefully give some feedback and most importantly, inspire and get inspired.

Good morning from cold CHICKaGO! Ha! 

I am here for the 2014 International Public Science Events Conference & AAAS Annual Meeting. 

Science festivals are proliferating rapidly across the globe, and growing in scope and impact in the communities where they are already taking place. It's a wonderful way to get #STEM  (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education and inspiration into the communities. 

So I will be learning what others do, hopefully give some feedback and most importantly, inspire and get inspired.

The Sun is always changing and NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory is always watching. Launched on February 11, 2010, SDO keeps a 24-hour eye on the entire disk of the Sun, with a prime view of the graceful dance of solar material coursing through the Sun's atmosphere, the corona. SDO's fourth year in orbit was no exception: NASA is releasing a movie of some of SDO's best sightings of the year, including massive solar explosions and giant sunspot shows.

SDO captures images of the Sun in 10 different wavelengths, each of which helps highlight a different temperature of solar material. Different temperatures can, in turn, show specific structures on the Sun such as solar flares, which are giant explosions of light and x-rays, or coronal loops, which are streams of solar material traveling up and down looping magnetic field lines.

Different temperatures can, in turn, show specific structures on the Sun such as solar flares, which are giant explosions of light and x-rays, or coronal loops, which are streams of solar material traveling up and down looping magnetic field lines. 

The movie shows examples of both, as well as what's called prominence eruptions, when masses of solar material leap off the sun. The movie also shows a giant sunspot group on the solar surface. This sunspot, a magnetically strong and complex region appearing in mid-January 2014, was one of the largest in nine years.

The movie runs 3 minutes and 44 seconds and it was created at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.

Scientists study these images to better understand the complex electromagnetic system causing the constant movement on the sun, which can ultimately have an effect closer to Earth, too: Flares and another type of solar explosion called coronal mass ejections can sometimes disrupt technology in space. Moreover, studying our closest star is one way of learning about other stars in the galaxy.

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, best known for cutting-edge images of the Sun, has made a discovery right here on Earth. 

"It's a new form of ice halo," says atmospheric optics expert Les Cowley of England. "We saw it for the first time at the launch of SDO--and it is teaching us new things about how shock waves interact with clouds." 

Ice halos are rings and arcs of light that appear in the sky when sunlight shines through ice crystals in the air. A familiar example is the sundog—a rainbow-colored splash often seen to the left or right of the morning sun. Sundogs are formed by plate-shaped ice crystals drifting down from the sky like leaves fluttering from trees.

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, best known for cutting-edge images of the Sun, has made a discovery right here on Earth. 

"It's a new form of ice halo," says atmospheric optics expert Les Cowley of England. "We saw it for the first time at the launch of SDO--and it is teaching us new things about how shock waves interact with clouds." 

Ice halos are rings and arcs of light that appear in the sky when sunlight shines through ice crystals in the air. A familiar example is the sundog—a rainbow-colored splash often seen to the left or right of the morning sun. Sundogs are formed by plate-shaped ice crystals drifting down from the sky like leaves fluttering from trees. 

Four years ago, during my launch my Atlas V rocket 
destroyed a sundog—and that's how the new halo was discovered. 

"When the rocket penetrated the cirrus, shock waves rippled through the cloud and destroyed the alignment of the ice crystals," explains Cowley. "This extinguished the sundog." 

The sundog's destruction was understood. The events that followed, however, were not. 

"A luminous column of white light appeared next to the Atlas V and followed the rocket up into the sky," says Cowley. "We'd never seen anything like it." 

Cowley and colleague Robert Greenler set to work figuring out what the mystery-column was. Somehow, shock waves from the rocket must have scrambled the ice crystals to produce the 'rocket halo.' But how? Computer models of sunlight shining through ice crystals tilted in every possible direction failed to explain the SDO event. 

Then came the epiphany: The crystals weren't randomly scrambled, Cowley and Greenler realized. On the contrary, the plate-shaped hexagons were organized by the shock waves as a dancing army of microscopic spinning tops. 

Cowley explains their successful model: "The crystals are tilted between 8 and 12 degrees. Then they gyrate so that the main crystal axis describes a conical motion. Toy tops and gyroscopes do it. The earth does it once every 26000 years. The motion is ordered and precise." 

Bottom line: Blasting a rocket through a cirrus cloud can produce a surprising degree of order. "This could be the start of a new research field—halo dynamics," he adds. 

The simulations show that the white column beside SDO was only a fraction of a larger oval that would have appeared if the crystals and shock waves had been more wide-ranging. A picture of the hypothetical complete halo may be found here. 

"We'd love to see it again and more completely," says Cowley. 

"If you ever get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be at a rocket launch," he advises with a laugh, "forget about the rocket! Look out instead for halos."

Oh, I also have to tell you about this morning's keynote speaker! Somebody very special! 

Astronaut Jerry Ross delivered a very fascinating keynote. I enjoyed listening to his stories. 

He is the co-holder of an amazing record of seven space-flights. Imagine that - 7 trips to Space. 7 times leaving Earth's gravitational pull and 7 times coming back and meeting that force again. 7 times experiencing the moment of weightlessness. Just amazing! 

Astronaut Jerry Ross supported the Space Shuttle Program as an Astronaut from before the first launch in April 1981 to the last landing in July 2011. He also supported the International Space Station Program from its inception through the completion of assembly of the ISS in 2011.

Flight Director +Ed Van Cise  and I got into the TARDIS and took a trip back in time. We arrived in a room full of history. A room filled with greenish big and bulky stations, big buttons and dials, old telephones, and a pneumatic tube canisters in consoles. At times cigarette smoke filled the room and a flight director with a vest was leading the groups. Today this room is a National Historic Landmark, filled with space flight stories.

Since 1965, Mission Control has been the helm of America’s human spaceflights. Since International Space Station assembly began in 1998, the center has become a focal point for human spaceflight worldwide. The teams that work in Mission Control, Houston, have been vital to every U.S. human spaceflight since the Gemini IV mission in 1965, including the Apollo missions that took humans to the moon and the more than 110 space shuttle flights since 1981.
