This week’s selection of videos about space stations and living in space including NASA’s latest Space to Ground report for the International Space Station:
** Expedition 70 Astronaut Jasmin Moghbeli Answers Pensacola, FL Student Questions – Nov. 15, 2023 – NASA Video
Aboard the International Space Station, NASA Expedition 70 Flight Engineer Jasmin Moghbeli discussed living and working in space during an in-flight event Nov. 12 with students attending the Creative Learning Academy in Pensacola, Florida. Moghbeli is in the midst of a science mission living and working aboard the microgravity laboratory to advance scientific knowledge and demonstrate new technologies. 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.

** Expedition 70 SpaceX Dragon CRS-29 Cargo Ship Space Station Docking – Nov. 9, 2023 – NASA Video
Loaded with scientific experiments and supplies, an unpiloted SpaceX Dragon cargo ship automatically docked to the International Space Station’s Earth-facing port of the Harmony module Nov 11. The SpaceX resupply craft launched from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida Nov. 9 as part of the company’s 29th commercial resupply mission for the agency and will remain at the station for one month.

Under NASA’s commercial resupply services contract, SpaceX delivers critical science, hardware, and supplies to crew aboard the International Space Station. SpaceX’s Dragon cargo spacecraft lifts off atop the company’s Falcon 9 rocket from Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Complex 39A in Florida. Commercial resupply by U.S. companies significantly increases NASA’s ability to conduct more investigations aboard the orbiting laboratory. These investigations lead to new technologies, medical treatments, and products that improve life on Earth. Other U.S. government agencies, private industry, and academic and research institutions can also conduct microgravity research through the agency’s partnership with the International Space Station National Laboratory.

** What’s So Cool About NASA’s Cold Atom Lab? – NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
NASA’s Cold Atom Laboratory on the International Space Station is regularly the coldest known spot in the universe. But why are scientists producing clouds of atoms a fraction of a degree above absolute zero? And why do they need to do it in space? Quantum physics, of course.
Here’s how CAL is helping scientists learn more about the physics behind things like miniaturized technology and the fundamental nature of the particles that make up everything we see.

Captured from NASA’s EHDC6 Live views of the Earth from the International Space Station
** 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: https://go.nasa.gov/3CkVtC8
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: https://spotthestation.nasa.gov
