This is so interesting: the journal Radiology reports that astronauts who have spent more than one month in space suffer damage to their eyes and brain tissue. The Huffpost discusses the study, which derived its data from MRI scans on 27 NASA astronauts.
Watch a time lapse video of our planet from space: The Journey Home From the International Space Station. It is absolutely breath taking. I love this so much I’m sharing it all over the place.
Ron Garan, the space-tweeting NASA astronaut who returned in September from five-and-a-half-months aboard the International Space Station (ISS), released a video on Monday that he says “is about as close as we can come to show what astronauts see in space”…
To make the video, Garan and [astronaut Mike] Fossum set DSLR cameras to take one picture about every three seconds. Garan says that even though the ISS is traveling at a speed of 17,500 mph, time-lapse photography gives the impression that the space station is traveling even faster.
