May 11th, 2009 - OV-104 Atlantis departs from Kennedy Space Center’s LC-39A on a final servicing mission to the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). STS-125 would be the only mission Atlantis would visit the HST - prior servicing missions were done by Discovery twice, with Columbia and Endeavour each once.

Upgrades to HST included the Cosmic Origins Spectograph, the Wide Field Camera 3 which can record different wavelengths of light, and a device called the Soft-Capture Mechanism, which will be used by a future craft to safely de-orbit Hubble at the end of its life span. HST is expected to continue to operate well into the 2030s.

STS-125 was unique in that it is one of a few missions that had two full Shuttle stacks on the launch pad at the same time. Any damage sustained from the launch that prevented Atlantis from returning home meant that she would be stuck in orbit with only three weeks of supplies. A rescue mission was specifically developed for STS-125, as the low inclination orbit of the HST meant that the International Space Station would effectively be out of reach of Atlantis and her crew.

In the event of Atlantis suffering damage, STS-400 would launch up to the crippled shuttle and extract the crew for a safe return home. OV-105 Endeavour was placed on stand-by at LC-39B until May 21st, after Atlantis was deemed safe to return home, and was released to begin processing for STS-127.

Atlantis and crew would return home May 24th, landing at Edwards Air Force Base - the weather in Florida deemed unsatisfactory for landing the orbiter. STS-125 had five successful EVAs, orbited the Earth 197 times, and featured the first Tweet from space by Astronaut Michael Massimino which read, “From orbit: Launch was awesome!! I am feeling great, working hard, & enjoying the magnificent views, the adventure of a lifetime has begun!

STS-125 was another shuttle mission to feature an IMAX camera, used to document the life of HST and the views of the universe it has brought to us. IMAX: Hubble 3D was released in 2010 and features the launch of STS-125. 

[!!!] According to Pledis Ent, Mingyu have injured himself while at a shooting. This will affect his participation in Seventeen’s Japan promotions in terms of performances at concerts and fanmeet but Mingyu will still be able to attend fansigns.

THIS IS THE LAST PART FROM THIS EPISODE. ENJOY!~

Host: What’s the title of this painting?

DH: It’s here! Please write the name of this painting. Thinking time, start!

Nao: When the question is about a painting’s title, there’s always someone who comes up with a legendary answer (Remember when Ryota called The Last Supper “A Rich Meal?” Haha!).

Voiceover: The correct answer is “The Birth of Venus.” Will there be another legendary answer?

DH: Taka-san.

Taka: Me?

DH: Yes.

Taka: I actually don’t know the answer. But, if I were to give a title to this painting, it will be this: “Hippie’s Play.” 

Nao: I see.

DH: What’s this? Somehow, it fits.

Taka: It’s nice, right? It’s not so bad.

Nao: I think it’s great,

DH: How about Toru-chan?

Toru: For me, it’s “Elizabeth from the Shell.” (Hahaha! This one’s my favorite answer.)

DH: Ah, you mean this part? (points at the shell)

Taka: This is a good answer, too.

DH: So, Tomoya?

Tomoya: Yes. I don’t know the answer, too. But, here’s mine: “Everyone Loves This Lady Very Much.”

Nao & DH: Everyone likes her, huh? They’re all looking at her.

Tomoya: They’re all looking at her, so I thought, “They must really love her a lot.” So I went with something simple like this.

DH & Nao: “Everyone Loves This Lady Very Much.” I see. It’s easy to understand.

Voiceover.

Ryota: For that “The Last Supper” thing, when I heard the right answer, I realized, “Oh, it’s actually pretty simple.” So, when I saw this one, too, I thought, “This might also be simple.” So, my answer is a lot simpler than the others’.

Voiceover: And so Ryota’s answer is…

Ryota: “Shell and Nudity” (HAHAHAHAHA!)

Nao: As expected, right?

DH: You’re great.

For the second stage, Taka won. ^^ After all, it’s not about who gets the right answer, but whoever makes the audience’s hearts jump. Haha!

Next week’s episode looks a lot more fun based on the preview. I think they’re going to act out some romantic situations. That’s why the tweet from Space Shower TV said they’re going to have a skit. Plus, on the preview, Taka said something like, “Always stay by my side.” <3 Hahaha!

The Space Shuttle Atlantis: America’s Swansong

  • Atlantis flew 33 missions during its life.
  • It flew and docked at the International Space Station and the Russian space station Mir a total of 19 times.
  • It orbited the Earth 4848 times and traveled 126,000,000 or so miles (not bad) which is a distance that could get you to the Moon 525 times.
  • Mike Massamino, an astronaut aboard Atlantis conducted the first “Tweet” from space in Atlantis. This was in 2009.
  • The final mission by Atlantis was in 2011 and it marked both the retirement of Atlantis and the rest of the shuttle fleet. This in turn marked the end of America’s ability to travel space.

Watch the First Vine Video From Space

First, man walked on the moon. Then, there were tweets from space, YouTube videos from space, selfies from space and Instagrams from space.

Now, at long last, we can feast our eyes on a Vine video from space.

NASA astronaut Reid Wiseman posted the first Vine video from the International Space Station on Friday. The six second looping video shows a single Earth orbit, which usually takes 92 minutes on the ISS — but it’s just six seconds here.”
