Chris Hadfield, a current resident of the International Space Station, answers from Earthlings on Reddit about life in space.
Song recounts the experience of living in space.
See mixed nuts in space. That is all.
Astronaut Sunita Williams, who commanded Expedition 33 on the ISS, spent her last day putting together this video tour, and it's (wait for it) out of this world.
NASA has just announced a $17.8 million dollar deal with private spaceflight firm Bigelow Aerospace to build and attach an inflatable private module to the ISS.
Space travel was once so rarified that only the truly exceptional had even the faintest hope of ever becoming an astronaut.
They say that in space, nobody can hear you scream. What they don't say is that it's because it's damn loud up there. Astronaut Chris Hadfield recorded the ambient noise aboard the International Space Station and sent it back down to Earth to give us all a sense of what it's like.
It's tough to sleep in space. You're stuck in a noisy machine all the time, the sun comes up every 90 minutes, and everything is lit with a garish sci-fi fluorescence. About half of all astronauts have to resort to drugging themselves at some point to fall asleep, and NASA wants to make things easier with the help of color-changing LED lights.
Thanks to the photographers and cameras on the International Space Station there's no shortage of amazing space imagery, most of which is easily accessible online. One film student from Italy decided to take some of that footage and create a time-lapse masterpiece.
The European Space Agency (ESA) and NASA conducted an experiment in late October that used the "interplanetary internet" to drive an earth-bound rover. Astronaut Sunita Williams used a laptop with experimental technology called Disruption-Tolerant Networking (DTN) protocol to control the rover using a network of connection points that more effectively controls data relay.
