Last week, the spacecraft commander performed a manual flight test to test the Starliner's performance, and it performed well without part of the thrusters. At the same time, Boeing is conducting experiments on identical propellers, to try to locate the
NASA and Boeing engineers continue to examine the helium leak from the spacecraft's engines and now the planned landing date of the Starliner is June 26. The extended crew has enough food, water and other supplies and there are no emergencies
The results showed that both human and animal kidneys undergo "remodeling" by the conditions in space, with specific renal tubules responsible for calibrating calcium and salt balance showing signs of shrinkage after less than a month
As the Starliner began its approach to the space station, five engines of the reaction control system failed during the flight. The mission teams performed a series of warm-up tests that restarted four of the engines while the crew navigated the
It is expected to arrive at the space station tomorrow, 6/6. On board the Starliner are veteran NASA astronauts Barry "Butch" Wilmore and Sonny Williams. Both astronauts are former US Navy test pilots and together have
On 19/1/2024, a movie titled ISS was released in the US, which describes an international incident that takes place on the space station following an inter- bloc war. In reality, the astronauts and cosmonauts work together despite the conflict between Russia and the West, but a storm
Airbus offers a "multi-purpose route module" known as the Airbus LOOP. The station includes three decks - and for the first time in the journeys of the human race outside the atmosphere and gravity of the Earth - also a centrifuge that will create gravity for
Yuri Borisov, the new head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, said in a meeting with Vladimir Putin on July 26, 2022 that future efforts will focus on a new Russian space station.

Today, Tuesday 19/4/2022 at four o'clock in the afternoon Israel time, Eitan Stiva and his three companions will enter the private space mission AX-1. They are supposed to land tomorrow, Wednesday at 15:17 Israel time
With a short break for Seder Pesach, Eitan Stiva was busy all weekend with the Israeli experiments
Throughout the day, Eitan Stiva performs a variety of scientific experiments from the International Space Station, in the field of remote medicine.
The Russian space agency Roscosmos then dropped the launch from a launcher carrying satellites for the ONEWEB project as a continuation of punitive measures against the West in the field of space
Director of Roscosmos Dimitri Rogozin referred to the DMS-R facility used to navigate the station, although it was designed by the European Space Agency and integrated into the Russian component of the Zavezda space station * as well as the Progress cargo spacecraft
The drug, which was developed in Israel by the Aina Pharma company together with a remotely controlled laboratory of the Israeli Space Pharma, was integrated into a regular supply spaceship of SpaceX. Will be tested in zero gravity conditions in space
The bone in question was a piece of debris created during the breakdown of bone 23106 (Pegasus R/B). This is the upper stage of a Pegasus type launcher, which was launched on May 19, 1994 and broke up on June 3, 1996
Russia conducted an anti-satellite weapon experiment in which an old Russian satellite exploded without prior warning to those responsible for the space sector in the Western armies, the Cosmos 1408 satellite was launched back in 1982 during the Soviet Union
The satellite was received strongly and clearly by 4 ground stations in Israel connected by a network between them: at Tel Aviv University, at the Science Center in Herzliya, at the Negev Gate and in Biruchem. In the coming days, it will be rerouted to its fixed orbit
The satellite will be launched packed inside a Northrop Grumman Cygnus model supply spacecraft. Northrop Grumman's Cygnus will be launched on Saturday, 19:36 Israel time, then the launch will be at the Atlantic Regional Space Center
Eitan Stiva, a former fighter pilot, is expected to take off at the end of 2021 in the Crew Dragon spacecraft as a space tourist for about five days.
A Japanese experiment on the space station looked at how bacteria can survive in space conditions and transfer life from one planet to another.
