NASA2,534,019Join us for a live Google+ Hangout on observing the Earth while in orbit and the importance of Earth science observations from space.  The astronauts living aboard the International Space Station get a unique view of planet Earth. In a single 90-minute orbit, they can see weather systems like hurricanes, man-made developments like cities and geological phenomena like volcanoes. Of all the planets NASA has explored, none yet have matched the dynamic complexity of our own Earth.  Luckily for us here on the ground, astronauts like Rick Mastracchio and Koichi Wakata have documented and shared their views from the orbiting laboratory 250 miles above the Earth. Both Mastracchio and Wakata tweeted during their 188 days in orbit, sharing photos of auroras, islands, lakes, bridges, glaciers, cities, deserts, mountains, clouds, and more. Photos like theirs give us a new perspective on our planet.  A fleet of NASA satellites also monitor the Earth’s vital signs every day. One example is the joint US-Japan Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) mission, which launched while Mastracchio and Wakata were living on ISS. The astronauts briefed President Obama on GPM in April, describing it as “a groundbreaking satellite that is changing how we measure rain and snowfall from space.” Mastracchio and Wakata will be joined by Eric Holthaus, a meteorologist who writes about weather and climate for Slate’s Future Tense blog, and Gail Skofronick Jackson, a GPM scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.  You may submit questions on Twitter and Google+ in advance and during the Hangout using the hashtag #askNASA .Observing Earth from Space2014-09-17 20:30:001659

NASA2,534,019Fifty 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 21:00:00652

The three will join Expedition 44 Flight Engineers Scott Kelly and Kjell Lindgren of NASA, Commander Gennady Padalka and Flight Engineers Oleg Kononenko and Mikhail Kornienko of Roscosmos, and Kimiya Yui of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).

The trip enables Roscosmos to rotate a crew member and a Soyuz spacecraft. Volkov will remain aboard the station for the next six months, returning in March 2016 with one-year mission crew members Kelly and Kornienko in the Soyuz TMA-18M. Padalka, who launched in March with Kelly and Kornienko in the Soyuz TMA-16M, will return to Earth in that spacecraft on Sept. 11 with Mogensen and Aimbetov. Each Soyuz remains in orbit for about six months.___

We’re tracking changes in the Greenland ice sheet. Why? Since polar regions are more sensitive to a warming Earth than other parts of the world, they can alert us to what’s in store for the rest of the planet. Learn more: https://youtu.be/yLm7PSsvW8g #EarthRightNow

Expedition 44 Commander Gennady Padalka of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) and Flight Engineers Scott Kelly of NASA and Mikhail Kornienko of Roscosmos relocated their Soyuz spacecraft on the International Space Station​ this morning. The crew members undocked in their Soyuz TMA-16M spacecraft from the Poisk module at 3:12 a.m. EDT and redocked the capsule to the orbiting laboratory’s Zvezda service module at 3:30 a.m. EDT (7:30 UTC).

The move of the Soyuz spacecraft clears the Poisk module for the arrival of Expedition 45 crew member Sergei Volkov of Roscosmos, and visiting crew members Andreas Mogensen of ESA (European Space Agency)​ and Aidyn Aimbetov of the Kazakh Space Agency. They are scheduled to launch to the station in a Soyuz spacecraft designated TMA-18M at 12:37 a.m. EDT Wednesday (4:37 UTC, 10:37 a.m. Baikonur time), Sept. 2 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome inKazak... more »

This will be the first time since November 2013 that nine crew members will be aboard the station simultaneously. Mogensen and Aimbetov will return to Earth with Padalka on Saturday, Sept. 12 in the Soyuz TMA-16M that was just relocated. In March 2016, the arriving Soyuz TMA-18M will return with Volkov, as well as one-year mission crew members Kelly and Kornienko, who arrived on station in March to begin collecting biomedical data crucial to NASA’s human journey to Mars.___
