Maintenance and departure procedures continue. Plus, testing NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly's fine motor skills as part of the research on the ‪#‎YearInSpace‬ mission to measure long-term microgravity exposure, different phases of microgravity adaptation, and sensorimotor recovery after returning to Earth's gravity. http://1.usa.gov/1zCuUU5
Maintenance and experiment work continued on Wednesday for the Expedition 43 crew. NASA astronauts Terry Virt spent the second consecutive day replacing components inside one of the station's Carbon Dioxide Removal Assemblies (CDRA.) The CDRA system works to remove carbon dioxide from the cabin ...

At the Limit of Diffraction

Did you ever want to just look through the eyepiece of a large telescope in space? If you could, you would see a sharp view that was diffraction limited. Unaffected by atmospheric blurring that ultimately plagues earthbound observers, the angular resolution of your diffraction limited view would be determined only by the wavelength of light and diameter of the telescope lens or mirror; the larger the diameter, the sharper the image. Still, in this working earth-based snapshot a new active adaptive optics system (MagAO) is being used to cancel out the atmospheric blurring in a visual observation of famous double star system Alpha Centauri. Testing the system at the eyepiece of the 6.5 meter diameter Magellan Clay Telescope at Las Campanas Observatory, astronomer Laird Close is enjoying a historic diffraction limited view (inset) and the wide apparent separation of the close binary star system ... without traveling to low earth orbit.

Plume in Moreton Bay, Australia

When the rainstorm ended in southeast Australia, a brown plume emerged from the Brisbane River. Read more at http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD/view.php?id=85828&src=googleplus

As ESA’s Proba-V works quietly on its main task of monitoring vegetation growth across Earth, the minisatellite is also picking up something from a little higher: signals from thousands of aircraft. Launched two years ago today, Proba-V has picked up upwards of 25 million positions from more than 15 000 separate aircraft.

Astronomers find first evidence of changing conditions on a super Earth

Astronomers have detected wildly changing temperatures on a super Earth – the first time any atmospheric variability has been observed on a rocky planet outside the solar system – and believe it could be due to huge amounts of volcanic activity, further adding to the mystery of what had been nicknamed the 'diamond planet'.

Landsat-8 caught the Calbuco Volcano in Chile is action on 27 April. Quite a contrast to the before image taken a month earlier on 26 March. The red colour shows the lava flow on a Sentinel-1A composite of images taken of the volcano during the eruption phase.
