International Space Station’s huge size shown in spacewalk image

It takes a lot to keep six astronauts alive, hurtling around in space for months at a time. But the exact scale might not ever have been truly revealed as it has by this picture — on which an astronaut is dwarfed by the International Space Station in which he temporarily lives.

Pressure is on to find the cause for vision changes in space

The human body is approximately 60 percent fluids. During spaceflight, these fluids shift to the upper body and move across blood vessel and cell membranes differently than they normally do on Earth. One of the goals of the Fluid Shifts investigation, launching to the International Space Station this spring, is to test the relationship between those fluid shifts and a ...

Freeze! Watching alloys change from liquid to solid could lead to better metals

If you put a camera in the ice machine and watched water turn into ice, the process would look simple. But the mechanism behind liquids turning to solids is actually quite complex, and understanding it better could improve design and production of metals. A recent investigation aboard the International Space Station contributed to that understanding.
