** Expedition 69 SpaceX Dragon CRS-28 Cargo Ship Departs International Space Station June 29, 2023NASA Video

Loaded with scientific experiments and supplies, the unpiloted SpaceX Dragon undocked from the International Space Station June 29, completing a three-week-long mission to the outpost for the company’s 28th commercial resupply services mission for NASA. The SpaceX spacecraft undocked from the zenith port of the Harmony module, headed for a splashdown off the coast of Florida June 30 to complete its flight that delivered several tons of experiments and hardware to the station.

** Expedition 69 Space Station Crew Talks with WBTS-TV Boston, AccuWeather June 29, 2023NASA Video

Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 69 Flight Engineers Woody Hoburg and Steve Bowen of NASA discussed life and work aboard the orbital outpost during an in-flight interview June 29 with WBTS-TV (NBC, Boston) and AccuWeather. Hoburg and Bowen are in the midst of a long-duration mission 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.

** Live Video from the International Space Station (Official NASA Stream) – NASA

Watch live video from the International Space Station, including inside views when the crew aboard the space station is on duty. Views of Earth are also streamed from an external camera located outside of the space station. During periods of signal loss due to handover between communications satellites, a blue screen is displayed.

The space station orbits Earth about 250 miles (425 kilometers) above the surface. An international partnership of five space agencies from 15 countries operates the station, and it has been continuously occupied since November 2000. It’s a microgravity laboratory where science, research, and human innovation make way for new technologies and research breakthroughs not possible on Earth. More:

Did you know you can spot the station without a telescope? It looks like a fast-moving star, but you have to know when to look up. Sign up for text messages or email alerts to let you know when (and where) to spot the station and wave to the crew:
