Here is the latest episode in NASA’s Space to Ground weekly report on activities related to the International Space Station:
** Expedition 67 – Progress 81 Cargo Ship Docks to International Space Station – June 3, 2022 – NASA Video
The uncrewed Russian Progress 81 cargo craft launched to the International Space Station from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on June 3 atop a Soyuz booster rocket. Progress is filled with almost three tons of supplies and cargo and docked to the aft port of the Zvezda service module after completing a two-orbit rendezvous. The resupply vehicle will remain docked to the space station until late this year.
** Exp. 67 Astronaut Bob Hines Talks with University of Alabama, WNEP-TV Pennsylvania – June 1, 2022 – NASA Video
Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 67 Flight Engineer Bob Hines of NASA discussed life and work aboard the orbital outpost during an in-flight event June 1 with the University of Alabama communications department and WNEP-TV in Moosic/Scranton, Pennsylvania. Hines is in the midst of a long duration science mission living and working aboard the microgravity laboratory. The goal of his mission is to advance scientific knowledge and demonstrate new technologies for future human and robotic exploration missions as part of NASA’s Moon and Mars exploration approach, including lunar missions through NASA’s Artemis program.
** Expedition 67 Space Station Crew Answers Overseas Student Questions – May 31, 2022 – NASA Video
Aboard the International Space Station, NASA Expedition 67 Flight Engineers Kjell Lindgren and Jessica Watkins of NASA answered pre-recorded questions about life and work on the orbital laboratory during an in-flight event May 31 with students attending Lakenheath High School in the United Kingdom. Lindgren and Watkins are in the midst of a science expedition mission living and working aboard the microgravity laboratory to advance scientific knowledge and demonstrate new technologies for future human and robotic exploration missions as part of NASA’s Moon and Mars exploration approach, including lunar missions through NASA’s Artemis program.
** Look out Boeing Starliner’s window in these amazing Earth from space views – VideoFromSpace
See footage captured on-orbit by Boeing Starliner during its historic OFT-2 mission to the International Space Station.
** Chinese Astronaut Shares Video of Washing Hair in Space Station – CCTV Video News Agency
Chinese astronaut Wang Yaping, one of the three taikonauts in Shenzhou-13 mission crew, shared the process of washing hair in orbit at the space station in a video released on Saturday by China Manned Space Agency on its official website.
Currently, live views from the ISS are streaming from an external camera mounted on the ISS module called Node 2. Node 2 is located on the forward part of the ISS. The camera is looking forward at an angle so that the International Docking Adapter 2 (IDA2) is visible. If the Node 2 camera is not available due to operational considerations for a longer period of time, a continuous loop of recorded HDEV imagery will be displayed. The loop will have “Previously Recorded” on the image to distinguish it from the live stream from the Node 2 camera. After HDEV stopped sending any data on July 18, 2019, it was declared, on August 22, 2019, to have reached its end of life. Thank You to all who shared in experiencing and using the HDEV views of Earth from the ISS to make HDEV so much more than a Technology Demonstration Payload!
