The ISS is about to get a bit more colorful for their next experiment. From romaine lettuce to space zinnias check out details on the veggie plant-growth system. May we suggest some barley and hop crops for the next experiment? 
The International Space Station is about to get a little homier, thanks to a flower garden that should bloom in early 2016.

I do not know the criteria used to select plants for experiments on-board the ISS.
But I would like to present you a very interesting plant that does not need soil to grow.
Here is called " Clavel del aire" ( Carnation of the air). It is blue green with tendence to gray. It has a nice blue flower.You can grow it with just water sprayed, and hanging from a wire, and in half shadow places for example.It is small and its weight is low. 
I have always loved it because its freedom.

Orion's "heart" is about to undergo one hell of a NASA stress test. See details on the ESA's service module and what type of trials this crucial piece of equipment will be subjected to while at NASA's Glenn Research Center’s Space Power Facility.
A critical piece of NASA's Orion spacecraft — which may carry astronauts to Mars — is about to begin a series of crucial tests to determine whether or not it can withstand the rigors of spaceflight.

3 little words to kick off your morning: Canyon of Fire. Check out some of the sun's fireworks captured by NASA's orbiting Solar Dynamics Observatory. Enjoy. 
The sun is supposed to be entering a quiet period, but it's still showing signs of its 11-year peak of activity it reached in early 2014.

What do you think of supersonic travel? Nasa is conducting focus groups now to see if they can make it less of a public annoyance over land masses. More video details below.
Supersonic aircraft are loud. Engine noise and transonic ‘booms’ made high speed airliners unwelcome visitors. Langley Research Center engineers are hosting focus groups to determine public annoyance and the space agency is looking into way to make sonic booms less of a nuisance over land.

Feb. 3, 1966 was when the Luna 9 finally made it to the moon. Now Nasa is using the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter to find it's final resting place. Details on the search begin after the jump.
Researchers are using NASA's sharp-eyed Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) in an attempt to locate the final resting place of the Soviet Union's Luna 9 probe, which made the first-ever soft landing on the moon, in 1966.

This blackhole simply took on more than it could chew ;). Still very complex but our understanding of these events is growing. See more details below from Curtin University.
A supermassive black hole anchoring the center of a nearby galaxy has been caught in a rarely seen double act: ripping apart a nearby sun-size star and shooting out jets of debris from its center at close to light speed.

+Alfonso Ramirez Sorry Alfonso, my knowledge of superluminal ejecta/motion is limited and I still struggle to explain what little I have read about it. The quantum vacuum inertia hypothesis mentions an asymmetric event horizon but that is also where my understanding ends on the subject. Perhaps someone who works in the field will be able to better assist you.

Don't we all want to test drive the Red World Car and live part of our lives in a Shared Space House? A new book a by Randall Munroe breaks down the complicated engineering and science topics behind the Mars Rover and more. Check out the details below.
A new image pairs intricate illustrations with delightfully simple language to explain the "Red World Space Car" (Curiosity Mars rover) and its mission.

Is the alien megastructure idea still valid? A team of astronomers at Iowa State University is following up on the work done by Kepler. More details below. 
A faraway star's mysterous and dramatic dimming was most likely caused by comet fragments, a new study suggests — though it doesn't rule out the much-ballyhooed possibility of an "alien megastructure" in the system.

Autumn was made for Andromeda, the galaxy that is. See where in the night sky you should be looking for this galaxy and why it's so awe-inspiring. Enjoy!
Here's how to see the huge Andromeda galaxy, which is visible with the naked eye in the night sky despite being 2.5 million light-years away.

We'd like you to meet Nasa's new toy: the chemical laptop. Ripped from the pages of Star Trek, how well do you think it will be at detecting new alien life forms?
New NASA technology straight out of "Star Trek" could help scientists detect life on other worlds.
