** Watch SpaceX Crew-4 undock from space station for return tripVideoFromSpace

SpaceX Crew-4’s Dragon spacecraft undocked from the International Space Station on Oct. 14, 2022. Aboard are NASA astronauts Kjell Lindgren, Robert Hines, Jessica Watkins and Samantha Cristoforetti from ESA. They are scheduled to splashdown off the coast of Florida in a few hours at 4:55 p.m. EDT (2055 GMT).

SpaceX Crew-4’s Dragon spacecraft splashed down off the coast of Florida on Oct. 14, 2022. Aboard are NASA astronauts Kjell Lindgren, Robert Hines, Jessica Watkins and Samantha Cristoforetti from ESA.

** NASA’s SpaceX Crew-4: A Scientific JourneyNASA

After months aboard the International Space Station, the astronauts of NASA’s SpaceX Crew-4 mission are returning home. Traveling back to Earth inside a SpaceX Dragon capsule are NASA astronauts Kjell Lindgren, Robert Hines, and Jessica Watkins, along with ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti. During their time aboard the orbiting laboratory, these crew members contributed to ongoing and new scientific investigations and technology demonstrations, work that is helping to prepare humans for future space exploration missions and generating innovations and benefits for humanity on Earth.

** Expedition 68 NASA’s SpaceX Crew-4 News Conference – Oct. 11, 2022 – NASA Video

Aboard the International Space Station NASA astronauts Kjell Lindgren, Bob Hines, Jessica Watkins and ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti answered questions and gave remarks about their mission during a news conference October 11. The Crew-4 astronauts have been aboard the space station since April and will return to Earth via a parachute assisted splashdown this month. The four crew members have been living and working aboard the microgravity laboratory to advance scientific knowledge and demonstrate new technologies for future human and robotic exploration missions. Such research benefits people on Earth and lays the groundwork for future human exploration through the agency’s Artemis missions, which will send astronauts to the Moon to prepare for future expeditions to Mars.

** Change of command of International Space Station takes place – October12, 2022 – NASA Video

Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 68 astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti oif ESA (European Space Agency) handed over command of the station to Roscosmos cosmonaut Sergey Prokopyev during a change of command ceremony October 12. Farewell remarks by Cristoforetti and NASA astronauts Kjell Lindgren, Bob Hines and Jessica Watkins preceded the change of command. The off-going Crew-4 astronauts are headed home to complete a six-month mission on the orbital outpost.

** Replay! Chinese astronauts deliver science lecture from spaceVideoFromSpace

Shenzhou-14 astronauts Chen Dong, Liu Yang and Cai Xuzhe talked science and more from the Tiangong space station on Oct. 12, 2022. Full Story:…

** ISS Live video stream – IBM/ISS HD Earth Viewing Experiment

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!
