Introduction

NASA's mission is to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research. To do that, thousands of people have been working around the world and in space for more than 50 years, trying to answer some basic questions. What's out there in space? How do we get there? What will we find? What can we learn there -- or learn just by trying to get there -- that will make life better here on Earth?


NASA's work is diverse: proving flight technologies; creating capabilities for sustainable human and robotic exploration; exploring Earth, the solar system and the universe beyond; developing critical enabling technologies such as the space shuttle; and conducting science in orbit aboard the International Space Station. With NASA you can explore the universe and discover Earth.

It's 'Full Spin Ahead! 'The 20-foot (6-meter) "golden lasso" reflector antenna atop our new Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) observatory is now ready to wrangle up high-resolution global soil moisture data, following the successful completion of a two-part procedure to spin it up to full speed.

The mission will help scientists understand the links in Earth's water, energy and carbon cycles; help reduce uncertainties in predicting weather and climate; and enhance our ability to monitor and predict natural hazards such as floods and droughts. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1NoPg5Z

Hmmm now I know why Scott Kelly is more famous than the other astronauts that went up 😋

Did you miss NASA astronaut Scott Kelly's launch on a one-year mission to the International Space Station? Want to watch it again?

Scott and his Russian crew members Gennady Padalka and Mikhail Kornienko began a six-hour journey to the space station. For Kelly and Kornienko, the launch began a #YearInSpace to conduct extensive research on the effect of long duration space travel on the human body

NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and Mikhail Kornienko and Gennady Padalka of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) joined their Expedition 43 crewmates when the hatches between the Soyuz TMA-16M spacecraft and the International Space Station officially opened at 11:15 p.m. EDT. Expedition 43 Commander Terry Virts, Anton Shkaplerov of the Roscosmos and Samantha Cristoforetti of ESA (European Space Agency) welcomed the new crew members aboard their orbital home.

Kelly and Kornienko will spend about a year on the space station to better understand how the human body reacts and adapts to the harsh environment of space. Data from the one-year mission will be used to determine whether there are ways to further reduce the risks on future long-duration missions to an asteroid and eventually Mars. The crew will support several hundred experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science -- research that impacts life on Earth. Learn more at http://www.nasa.gov/oneyear 

Virts, Shkaplerov and Cristoforetti will return home in May 2015. At that time Padalka will become commander for Expedition 44. Padalka will spend six months aboard the outpost, during which he will become the first four-time station commander and record holder for most cumulative time spent in space. Kelly and Kornienko will return to Earth in March 2016 with Expedition 46 after 342 days in space.

Aboard their Soyuz TMA-16M spacecraft, Scott Kelly, Mikhail Kornienko and Soyuz Commander Gennady Padalka are scheduled to dock at 9:36 p.m. EDT/1:36 UTC to the International Space Station's Poisk module. NASA Television coverage of the docking will begin at 8:45 p.m./23:45 UTC and can also be seen online at: http://www.nasa.gov/nasatv.

NASA TV will then resume at 10:45 p.m./2:45 UTC to cover hatch opening between the two spacecraft as well as the welcome ceremony.

The Soyuz crew will join Expedition 43 Commander Terry Virts of NASA, Anton Shkaplerov of Roscosmos and Samantha Cristoforetti of ESA - European Space Agency. Virts, Shkaplerov and Cristoforetti have lived aboard the space station since November.

We have spectacular images from today's launch with NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and Russian cosmonauts Mikhail Kornienko and Gennady Padalka to the International Space Station. Kelly and Kornienko will begin a one-year mission in space, testing the limits of human research, space exploration and the human spirit.
