+ 1 - 1 | § Weightloss Record


peggyI have huge respect for astronaut Mike Foale, so, for that reason, I'm a bit sorry to see his U.S. record for total cumulative time in space, at 374 days, fall.

But since we're going to have to start pushing our duration limits if we're ever going to go anyway, I'm happy to see Peggy Whitson beat Mike's record. (And Peggy also has a special place in my heart, being the only American in space the day I started working for NASA.)

earth photographPer collectSPACE:
The view of Earth from space has been captivating astronauts and cosmonauts since Yuri Gagarin exclaimed "I see Earth! It is so beautiful!" on his trailblazing flight in 1961. Since then millions of photographs have been sent back from orbit, capturing the magnificence of our home planet.

Now, for the first time in history, it can be your turn to focus the camera back at Earth.

In October 2008, Richard Garriott, son of U.S. astronaut Owen Garriott, will launch to the International Space Station on a week-long mission to conduct science experiments developed in partnership with his father and to test new Earth observation software that can help identify and take photos of targets as they enter and pass through the field of view of Earth-facing windows.

In collaboration with collectSPACE, the leading online resource for space history enthusiasts, and to benefit the Association of Space Explorers, a non-profit organization of over 300 flown astronauts and cosmonauts from 32 nations, Richard invites you to pick your place on Earth to photograph from space to present to you.

+ 0 - 1 | § ATV Docks With ISS


atv dockingPer NASA:
The Jules Verne, the first European Space Agency Automated Transfer Vehicle, docked to the aft port of the International Space Station's Zvezda Service Module at 10:45 a.m. EDT Thursday.

The unpiloted cargo spacecraft carries more than 7,500 pounds of equipment, supplies, water, fuel and gases for the station.

It also carries hopes and aspirations of the European Space Agency. The ATV and its advanced rendezvous system could play an important role in future space exploration.

The Jules Verne docked smoothly using its automated, laser guided rendezvous system. It was in many respects a repeat of the dry run on Monday. That practice approach brought the ATV to within 36 feet of the docking port.
