Here is the latest episode in NASA’s Space to Ground weekly report on activities related to the International Space Station:
** Astronaut Discusses Life Aboard Space Station During Investing in Space Conference – NASA Video
Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 67 Flight Engineer Samantha Cristoforetti of ESA (European Space Agency) discussed living and working in space during an in-flight interview for the Financial Times of London “Investing in Space” conference June 9. Cristoforetti launched in April on the SpaceX Crew Dragon Freedom for a long duration science mission to advance scientific knowledge and demonstrate new technologies for future human and robotic exploration missions.
** Adapt | Down to Earth – S2:E4 – NASA Johnson
This week on Down to Earth: Conversations, former NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy and astronaut Warren “Woody” Hoburg explore what it’s like to adapt to life on station.
** Going Outside: Exploring the Future – NASA Johnson
What will it take to get humanity further into the cosmos… the suits they wear, of course! From the surface of the Moon to the Space Station, American astronauts have been suiting up to explore for over fifty years. With Mars on the horizon, the next generation of spacesuits will propel us to a new future of learning, exploration, and discovery. https://www.nasa.gov/suitup

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!
