NASA and Bigelow Aerospace engineering teams monitored the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) overnight for structural changes, saw some additional expansion and lower pressure as module settled. Listen in as we discuss the latest at 2 p.m. ET: http://www.nasa.gov/news/media/newsaudio/index.html

Thermal changes maybe?

Clear evidence of a Martian ice age that occurred around 400,000 years ago was found by our Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). By analyzing radar images, scientists discovered evidence for this past ice age in the northern polar ice cap of Mars. Find out more: http://go.nasa.gov/1WPWXtb

How do we ensure that our Orion spacecraft can withstand the thunderous force and pressure of a rocket launch? Test it! Engineers mimicked the launch environment the spacecraft will experience on a 2018 mission beyond the moon. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/25kHTWd

Giant, dark area on the sun’s upper half, known as a coronal hole was seen by our Solar Dynamics Observatory from May 17 – 19. Coronal holes are low-density regions of the sun’s atmosphere. These holes are important to understanding the space environment around Earth through which our technology and astronauts travel. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/25kdoQa

You’re looking at the most detailed view of Pluto’s terrain you’ll see for a very long time. This mosaic strip, extending across the hemisphere that faced the New Horizons spacecraft, now includes all of the highest-resolution images taken by the probe. Take a closer look: http://go.nasa.gov/1XCp8uH

This is Pluto.
Pluto regularly gets crap said about its size by Earth.
Pluto doesn't care what you think.

Be like Pluto.

We’re working closely with Bigelow Aerospace to understand why its module did not fully expand today as planned. For updates, visit: http://blogs.nasa.gov/spacestation/

Good Question. Pressure is holding, but no expansion, some other force is holding it.

+Emmanuel S. You say....do you trust your EYES or do you trust NASA? ......and you are entirely right. There are tons of small observatories which you can go to which have telescopes which allow DIRECT observation. You can check when the ISS is going to be overhead......you go to one of those observatories....you look through the eyepiece... (of course you check the top of the telescope to make sure no nefarious agents of NASA haven't taped a cardboard picture onto it)..... you also confirm that the object is not the Energizer Bunny (you can tell by it's pink color)....and if it is not pink..ta da..... you have the ISS floating around the planet. You might want to give it a try. Even people with little understanding of science can do it.

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.
