This photo of the Amazon River taken by Astronaut Tim Kopra reveals the many meandering changes of the river’s course. Left untouched by human intervention, rivers tend to get more curvy, or sinuous, over time, simply due to fluid dynamics. Imagine a single bend in a river. Due to conservation of angular momentum, water flows faster around the inside curve of the bend than the outside - just like an ice skater spins faster with her arms pulled in. From Bernoulli’s principle, we know there is an accompanying pressure gradient caused by this velocity difference - with higher pressure near the outer bank and lower pressure on the inner one. This pressure gradient is what guides the water around the bend, keeping the bulk of the fluid moving downstream rather than bending toward either bank. 

At the bottom of the river, though, viscosity slows the water down due to the influence of the ground. This slower water, still subject to the same pressure gradient as the rest of the river, cannot maintain its course going downstream. Instead, it gets pushed from the outer bank toward the inner bank in what’s known as a secondary flow. This secondary flow carries sediment away from the outer bank and deposits it on the inner bank, which, over time, makes the river bend more and more pronounced. (Image credit: T.

Touchdown! Yes, Astronauts in Space Can Watch the Super Bowl

When the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos square off Sunday, astronauts on the International Space Station will be able to watch the kickoff in real time.

While NASA astronauts Scott Kelly and Tim Kopra on the orbiting laboratory haven’t announced their picks for the big game, they will be off duty and able to watch. (Kelly is a Houston Texans fan and watched football on Thanksgiving with former crewmember Kjell Lindgren.)

“Crew will be able to watch in real time; it will be sent up as usual for live events from Mission Control Houston,” NASA spokesman Dan Huot told Space.com in an email. “It’s a nominal off-duty Sunday for the entire crew, so no additional tasks for them aside from exercise.” [Audi Rockets to Super Bowl with Apollo Astronaut-Themed Ad]

In fact, the crewmembers have more in common with the football players they’re watching than one might realize. For one thing, the outstretched arms of the International Space Station where the astronauts reside are about the length and width of a football field. For another, NASA pioneered the shock-absorbing foam, shiny outside shell and wireless communications found in football helmets.

Plus, in 2010, the coin flipped to start the big game had flown in space on the space shuttle Atlantis for 11 days, racking up 4 million miles (6.4 million kilometers) around the Earth.

After their day off, the crewmembers will return to their experiments on the space station. Kelly and cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko are within four weeks of the end of their yearlong mission, and the two are currently joined by Kopra, British astronaut Tim Peake, and cosmonauts Yuri Malenchenko and Sergey Volkov (who just completed a spacewalk Wednesday, Feb. 3).

Space Station Crew Chat About Astronaut Life and International Cooperation

On January 28, International Space Station astronauts Scott Kelly and Tim Kopra conducted an interview with the Military Times, speaking on their NASA careers and how their former military experiences shaped their time in space.

“At the end of the day, what we do is very similar to the military in that it’s a team sport,” Kopra said. “And being able to work in a team is the most critical skill.”

In the twelve minute interview, the pair also spoke on the 30th anniversary of the Challenger disaster, the future of Mars exploration and international collaboration in outer space.

“One of the great parts about the [International] Space Station program is that we’re working on something that’s very important, difficult and challenging, and we’re doing it in an international way that shows that we can cooperate, even when, at times, we may have our differences,” Kelly said.

DOCUMENT FRANCE 2. Depuis l'espace, l'astronaute Tim Peake demande aux Terriens de "s'occuper de notre planète"

A 43 ans, Tim Peake réalise son premier vol dans l’

espace. Mardi 9 février, l'astronaute britannique a raconté à France 2 comment se déroulait la vie à quelques milliers de kilomètres de la Terre, à bord de la Station spatiale internationale (ISS). Depuis le 15 décembre, il y participe à l'expédition 46-47, avec les Américains Scott Kelly et Tim Kopra, ainsi que les Russes Mikhaïl Kornienko, Sergueï Volkov et Iouri Malentchenko.

“Je souhaiterais pouvoir faire venir tout le monde ici”

“Au quotidien, on travaille de 7 heures du matin à 7 heures du soir”, explique-t-il, citant les activités scientifiques en cours dans l'ISS. Mais “bien sûr”, ajoute-t-il, “on passe chaque moment de liberté à regarder par la fenêtre et à prendre des photos (…) La vue de la planète terre est spectaculaire pendant les aurores, c'est incroyable.”

Lui qui poste régulièrement des vidéos et des photos sur les réseaux sociaux confie[essayer] de partager cette mission le plus possible avec tous ceux sur terre.”“Je souhaiterais pouvoir faire venir tout le monde ici pour admirer la Terre” afin de “comprendre combien il est important de s'occuper les uns les autres et de s'occuper de notre planète”, rappelle-t-il. La Terre est ce qu'il y a “de plus remarquable” et de “plus beau”, assure le Britannique.

Russian Spacewalkers Maintain Experiments, Launch Ceremonial Flash Drive Into Space

Two cosmonauts completed a spacewalk today to retrieve, install and adjust experiments clinging to the outside of the International Space Station and to jettison a ceremonial flash drive into space.

Sergey Volkov and Yuri Malenchenko of the Russian federal space agency, known as Roscosmos, ventured outside the station today (Feb. 3) for a quicker-than-planned spacewalk of 4 hours and 45 minutes. The cosmonauts were assisted from inside the station by NASA astronaut Tim Kopra and British astronaut Tim Peake, who went on their own spacewalk in mid-January (which was cut short when Kopra noticed water in his helmet).

The mission was Volkov’s fourth spacewalk and mission commander Malenchenko’s sixth — his first was almost 22 years ago, when Malenchenko was aboard Russia’s Mir space station. Both of the spacewalkers are Soyuz pilots — they piloted the spacecraft that initially brought them to the station, three months apart. Their primary tasks on the spacewalk focused on maintaining many of the experiments arrayed outside the space station and checking for wear and tear.

When the spacewalk began, Volkov exited the space station first to complete an unusual task added to the to-do list just a few days ago: throwing into space a small flash drive that was used in a celebration of the 70th anniversary of Russian Victory Day on May 9, 2015. (Victory Day marks Nazi Germany’s capitulation to the Soviet Union at the end of World War II.) The flash drive carries messages and video from last year’s celebration.

To give the flash drive enough mass to be successfully thrown from the station, the cosmonauts attached it to an empty film canister filled with disposable towels. Volkov propelled the whole bundle into a retrograde orbit — the opposite direction to that of the space station — where it will not get in the station’s way before spiraling down to burn up in Earth’s atmosphere within a few weeks. Malenchenko filmed the flash drive’s flight with a GoPro camera.

After that, the duo worked on several experiments on the outside of the space station, including bringing in the European Space Agency’s EXPOSE-R Experiment, which was at the end of its 7-year run. EXPOSE-R housed biological and biochemical samples that were switched out over time to evaluate how they responded to space exposure. Along the same lines, they replaced a cassette container on another experiment that tests how materials are degraded in space over time.

The spacewalkers also took samples from the outside of the International Space Station to check for thruster residue and captured detailed images of the Russian segment’s exterior.

The two cosmonauts’ final tasks included installing two devices called gap spanners, which will help crewmembers move around the space station’s Russian segment on future spacewalks. They also waited until daylight to test a device that can apply a protective thermal control film to the outside of the space station. The film jammed as they tried to apply it to the sample board, so they spent some time trying to un-jam the applicator, racing to finish before night fell over the space station.

As the two came in, Kopra and Peake assisted while U.S. astronaut Scott Kelly and Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko isolated themselves in a module of the Russian segment in case of any re-pressurization issues — a standard safety measure. Kelly and Kornienko are on Day 313 of their 340-day stay in space. In less than four weeks, the two will return to Earth along with Volkov.

ISS Daily Summary Report – 02/1/16

Burning and Suppression of Solids – Milliken (BASS-M):  Today Kopra completed the second set of BASS-M operations, preparing and testing five different samples with ground assistance from the Principal Investigator.  The BASS-M investigation tests flame-retardant cotton fabrics to determine how well they resist burning in microgravity. Results benefit research on flame-retardant textiles that can be used on Earth and in space.   Skin-B:  Peake completed a session today for the European Space Agency (ESA) Skin-B investigation.  He obtained Corneometer measurements of the hydration level of the stratus coreum (outer layer of the skin), Tewameter measurements of the skin barrier function, and Visioscan measurements of skin surface topography. The Skin-B investigation aims to improve the understanding of skin aging, which is greatly accelerated in space.  The data will also be used to verify the results from previous testing for the SkinCare investigation on the ISS.   Japanese Experiment Module (JEM) Remote Manipulator System (JEMRMS) Operations:  Peake opened the outer hatch of the JEM Airlock and extended the Airlock Slide Table external to the ISS.  Ground controllers then transferred Cyclops from the Small Fine Arm (SFA) on the JEMRMS to the Slide Table.  Once the transfer was complete, Peake brought the Slide Table back into the Airlock.  Later this week ISS crewmembers will remove Cyclops and stow it on-board the ISS.   Biolab Door Removal:  Peake removed the Biolab Door Assembly and replaced it with a dummy cover.  The assembly will be returned to the ground for repair.   Fine Motor Skills:  Kelly, Kornienko and Peake each completed sessions of the Fine Motor Skills experiment today.  During the experiment they performed a series of interactive tasks on a touchscreen tablet. This investigation is the first fine motor skills study to measure long-term microgravity exposure, different phases of microgravity adaptation, and sensorimotor recovery after returning to Earth gravity.   Internal Thermal Control System (ITCS) Sample Collection:  Kelly, Kopra, and Peake worked to obtain ITCS coolant samples from the Lab, Node 2, Node 3, and Columbus modules today. The samples will be prepared for return onboard SpaceX-8.   Orbital ATK (OA)-4 Cargo Operations:  The crew completed transferring Cygnus cargo to ISS on Friday.   Today, Kelly started loading trash into Cygnus.  An estimated 6.5 hours remain to complete the trash loading.  Cygnus is scheduled to unberth from ISS on February 19th.   Oxygen Generation Assembly (OGA) Fault:  This afternoon the OGA faulted to shutdown due to a failed H2 sensor.  The OGA will be taken to standby until the H2 sensor can be replaced. There is one spare sensor on-orbit.   Today’s Planned Activities All activities were completed unless otherwise noted.

ISS Daily Summary Report – 02/11/16

Ocular Health Testing:  Today Kelly and Kornienko, with Kopra as the operator, completed their Return minus 30 day (R-30) Ocular Health testing by performing ocular and cardiac ultrasound scans.  The Ocular Health protocol calls for a systematic gathering of physiological data to characterize the risk of microgravity-induced visual impairment/intracranial pressure in ISS crewmembers. Researchers believe that the measurement of visual, vascular and central nervous system changes over the course of this experiment and during the subsequent post-flight recovery will assist in the development of countermeasures, clinical monitoring strategies, and clinical practice guidelines.   Integrated Resistance and Aerobic Training Study (Sprint) Volume of Oxygen Utilized (VO2) Max:  For his Flight Day 60 Sprint VO2 Max session, Kopra attached Electrocardiogram (ECG) electrodes to himself, set up and don Heart Rate Monitor hardware, performed Portable Pulmonary Function System calibrations, and then performed the VO2 protocol.  The Sprint VO2 investigation evaluates the use of high intensity, low volume exercise to minimize loss of muscle, bone, and cardiovascular function in ISS crewmembers while reducing total exercise time during long-duration space missions   Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) 3003 Fan Pump Separator Remove and Replace (R&R) Part 2:  Following yesterday’s EMU 3003 FPS R&R, Kelly and Peake primed the new pump and prepared the EMU for a return to service checkout scheduled on Monday.  Tomorrow, the faulty pump will be packed for return onboard Soyuz 44 next month for ground examination.   The FPS which was removed had failed to start up during an activity to fill the Liquid Cooling and Ventilation Garment (LCVG) in December.   Orbital ATK (OA)-4 Cargo Operations:  Kopra transferred trash into the Cygnus vehicle today in preparation for its unberth and release on February 19th.   Portable Emergency Provisions (PEPs) Inspection:  Peake conducted an audit of the PEPs hardware and verified the emergency response equipment was in the expected location and is free of damage.  Among the items inspected were Water Mist Portable Fire Extinguishers (PFEs), Portable Breathing Apparatus (PBA) including Quick Don mask Assemblies (QDMAs) and Pre-Breathe Masks.   Condensate Water Separator Assembly (CWSA) Desiccant Module R&R:   Kopra utilized the 3D Visual Trainer (3D ViT) in order to familiarize himself with the CWSA Desiccant Module inspection and R&R task within Columbus.  Once the training was complete, he proceeded with the inspection and Desiccant Module R&R.  The Desiccant Module is placed inside the CWSA in order to provide a dry atmosphere and prevent condensation on the cold outer surfaces of the water separator housing/parts. The module is inspected and replaced as part of preventative maintenance.   Mobile Servicing System (MSS) Operations:  This evening, Robotics Flight Controllers will be stowing the Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator (SPDM) on the Mobile Base System (MBS), and walking off the Space Station Remote Manipulator System (SSRMS) from the MBS power and data grapple fixture (PDGF)-1 to the Node2 PDGF.

Researchers believe that the measurement of visual, vascular and central nervous system changes over the course of this experiment and during the subsequent post-flight recovery will assist in the development of countermeasures, clinical monitoring strategies, and clinical practice guidelines.   Integrated Resistance and Aerobic Training Study (Sprint) Volume of Oxygen Utilized (VO2) Max:  For his Flight Day 60 Sprint VO2 Max session, Kopra attached Electrocardiogram (ECG) electrodes to himself, set up and don Heart Rate Monitor hardware, performed Portable Pulmonary Function System calibrations, and then performed the VO2 protocol.  The Sprint VO2 investigation evaluates the use of high intensity, low volume exercise to minimize loss of muscle, bone, and cardiovascular function in ISS crewmembers while reducing total exercise time during long-duration space missions   Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) 3003 Fan Pump Separator Remove and Replace (R&R) Part 2:  Following yesterday’s EMU 3003 FPS R&R, Kelly and Peake primed the new pump and prepared the EMU for a return to service checkout scheduled on Monday.  Tomorrow, the faulty pump will be packed for return onboard Soyuz 44 next month for ground examination.   The FPS which was removed had failed to start up during an activity to fill the Liquid Cooling and Ventilation Garment (LCVG) in December.   Orbital ATK (OA)-4 Cargo Operations:  Kopra transferred trash into the Cygnus vehicle today in preparation for its unberth and release on February 19th.   Portable Emergency Provisions (PEPs) Inspection:  Peake conducted an audit of the PEPs hardware and verified the emergency response equipment was in the expected location and is free of damage.  Among the items inspected were Water Mist Portable Fire Extinguishers (PFEs), Portable Breathing Apparatus (PBA) including Quick Don mask Assemblies (QDMAs) and Pre-Breathe Masks.   Condensate Water Separator Assembly (CWSA) Desiccant Module R&R:   Kopra utilized the 3D Visual Trainer (3D ViT) in order to familiarize himself with the CWSA Desiccant Module inspection and R&R task within Columbus.  Once the training was complete, he proceeded with the inspection and Desiccant Module R&R.  The Desiccant Module is placed inside the CWSA in order to provide a dry atmosphere and prevent condensation on the cold outer surfaces of the water separator housing/parts. The module is inspected and replaced as part of preventative maintenance.   Mobile Servicing System (MSS) Operations:  This evening, Robotics Flight Controllers will be stowing the Special Purpose Dexterous Manipulator (SPDM) on the Mobile Base System (MBS), and walking off the Space Station Remote Manipulator System (SSRMS) from the MBS power and data grapple fixture (PDGF)-1 to the Node2 PDGF. Once the walk off is complete, they will grapple Cygnus in preparation for its unberth and release on February 19th.     Today’s Planned Activities All activities were completed unless otherwise noted.

El astronauta e ingeniero aéreo de la Agencia Espacial de Europa, Tim Peake, compartió a través de su cuenta de Twitter un video en el que muestra cómo se ven los rayos desde la estación Espacial Internacional (EEI).

“Es increíble la cantidad de rayos que pueden golpear a nuestro planeta en un corto tiempo. Volando desde el norte de África a lo largo de Turquía hacia Rusia en este lapso”, escribió el astronauta junto al video.

El ingeniero aéreo de la Agencia Espacial de Europa arribó el pasado 15 de diciembre a la EEI, junto con Tim Kopra, de la Administración Nacional de Aeronáutica y del Espacio (NASA), como parte de una misión que tendrá una duración de seis meses.Fuente: http://www.sinembargo.mx/

ISS Daily Summary Report – 02/10/16

Burning and Suppression of Solids – Milliken (BASS-M):  Today Kopra completed the fifth set of BASS-M operations, preparing and testing five different samples with ground assistance from the Principal Investigator.  The BASS-M investigation tests flame-retardant cotton fabrics to determine how well they resist burning in microgravity. Results benefit research on flame-retardant textiles that can be used on Earth and in space.   Circadian Rhythms:  Peake configured and donned the Armband Monitor and Thermolab sensors and belt for his Flight Day 30 Circadian Rhythm session.  He will wear the monitors for 36 hours and then doff and download the data on Friday.  Circadian Rhythms investigates the role of synchronized circadian rhythms, or the “biological clock,” and how it changes during long-duration spaceflight. Researchers hypothesize that a non-24-hour cycle of light and dark affects crewmembers’ circadian clocks. The investigation also addresses the effects of reduced physical activity, microgravity and an artificially controlled environment. Changes in body composition and body temperature, which also occur in microgravity, can affect crewmembers’ circadian rhythms as well. Understanding how these phenomena affect the biological clock will improve performance and health for future crewmembers.   Sprint Ultrasound:  Kelly assisted Kopra in performing his Flight Day 60 thigh and calf ultrasound scans today.  Ultrasound scans are used to evaluate spaceflight-induced changes in the muscle volume. The Sprint investigation evaluates the use of high intensity, low volume exercise training to minimize loss of muscle, bone, and cardiovascular function in ISS crewmembers during long-duration missions. Upon completion of this study, investigators expect to provide an integrated resistance and aerobic exercise training protocol capable of maintaining muscle, bone and cardiovascular health while reducing total exercise time over the course of a long-duration space flight. This will provide valuable information in support of the long term goal of protecting human fitness for even longer space exploration missions.   Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) 3003 Fan Pump Separator Remove and Replace (R&R):  As part of a two day activity, Kelly and Peake removed the failed FPS from EMU 3003 today and replaced it with a new pump.  Tomorrow, the crew will finalize the installation by performing pump priming and preparing the EMU for a return to service checkout.  The FPS being removed had failed to start up on December 19th during a Liquid Cooling and Ventilation Garment (LCVG) fill activity.   Today’s Planned Activities All activities were completed unless otherwise noted.
