Kate Rubins, a 1999 UC San Diego graduate, is headed to the International Space Station!
 
Launch Day: Kate, Anatoly and Takuya | Expedition 48-49 Crew
Watch NASA TV tonight starting at 8:30pm ET: nasa.gov/nasatv
Kate Rubins of NASA, Anatoly Ivanishin of Roscosmos, center, and Takuya Onishi of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) pose for a group photograph following the crew press conference, Wednesday, July 6, 2016 at the Cosmonaut Hotel in Baikonur, Kazakhstan. Rubins, Ivanishin, and Onishi will launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan the morning of July 7, Kazakh time (July 6 Eastern time.) All three will spend approximately four months on the orbital complex, returning to Earth in October.

The trio will travel in an upgraded Soyuz spacecraft, testing modified systems for two days—and 34 Earth orbits—before docking to the space station’s Rassvet module at 12:12 a.m. Saturday, July 9. NASA TV coverage of docking will begin at 11:30 p.m. Friday, July 8.

The modified Soyuz is equipped with upgraded thrusters that are fully redundant, additional micrometeoroid debris shielding, redundant electrical motors for the Soyuz’ docking probe and increased power with more photovoltaic cells on the spacecraft’s solar arrays.

Other enhancements for the Soyuz include a new digital video transmitter and encoder to send engineering video of the ship’s approach to the station for docking, a new relay telemetry capability along with an upgraded Kurs automated rendezvous antenna and an improved satellite navigation system to better calculate the Soyuz’ position in space.

Hatches between the Soyuz and station will be opened about 2:50 a.m. Saturday, when the newly arrived crew will be greeted by Expedition 48 Commander Jeff Williams of NASA and Flight Engineers Oleg Skripochka and Alexey Ovchinin of Roscosmos. NASA TV coverage of hatch opening and welcoming ceremonies will begin at 2:30 a.m.

Together, the Expedition 48 crew members will continue the several hundred experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science currently under way and scheduled to take place aboard humanity’s only orbiting laboratory.

Proud to share that our Department of Theatre and Dance is ranked No. 6 in the country by The Hollywood Reporter. #MFA #drama
Critics say it's an MFA mill — and a cash cow for Pace and The Actors Studio, which recently renewed their partnership for another 10 years. But if these fourth walls could talk! There's no denying the history of a place where Lee Strasberg and Elia Kazan taught the Stanislavski method to the likes of Marlon Brando, James Dean, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. Plus, students get to sit in the audience during Bravo's Inside the Actors Studio and list...

Check out this bio-inspired device for #space exploration.
Researchers tested the claw-like device on a Mars soil simulant. The sea urchin's intricate mouth and teeth are the model for a claw-like device developed by a team of engineers and marine biologists at the University of California, San Diego to sample sediments on other planets, such as Mars.

70 years after its discovery, #Zika remains relatively unknown--but that’s changing fast.
Building a Defense Against Zika. UC San Diego researchers leading efforts to find turning point to virus. On April 18, 1947, a monkey in Uganda's Zika Forest fell ill with a fever of 103 degrees Fahrenheit, 4 degrees higher than normal. “Rhesus No. 766” was part of a yellow fever virus study.

“Microbes pervade all kinds of processes — from our bodies to our planet to industrial fermentation and drug synthesis. Working closely with other researchers in the White House’s National Microbiome Initiative will help us unravel the fundamental science so we can understand how microbes do all these things.”

“The kind of planets we've found are very exciting from the perspective of searching for life in the universe beyond Earth.”
-- Adam Burgasser, professor of physics at UC San Diego

Artist's impression of the system as seen from the surface of the outer planet. Though nine times smaller than the Sun, the star looks significantly larger in the sky because the planet is 8 to 20 times closer to it than the Earth is to the Sun. An international team of astronomers, including UC ...
