9am ET Wednesday, May 5: Watch SpaceX​'s Pad Abort Test, an important step in NASA Commercial Crew Program​ to launch astronauts to the International Space Station​ from American soil. Watch live on NASA TV at www.nasa.gov/ntv.

The test will see a Crew Dragon and trunk – together about 20 feet tall – fly on the power of eight SuperDraco engines. There will be no crew members aboard, which will simulate an emergency escape from the launch pad in the unlikely case of booster failing at liftoff or other scenario that would threaten astronauts inside.

SpaceX reported this evening that it has moved the start of its Pad Abort Test window two hours to 9 a.m. EDT on Wednesday, May 6, from Space Launch Complex 40 on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. spacex_pad_abort_vehicle_split. The test will see a Crew Dragon and trunk – together ...

More than half of astronauts experience vision loss during spaceflight. Scientists must learn more about what is causing these issues before astronauts can live in space for longer periods of time - like on a journey to Mars.  What they find may else help patients with eye problems on Earth.

What will it take to get humans to Mars? We have robots and rovers on the planet's surface and are planning on sending humans there as soon as technically possible, but there are steppingstones to getting there, conducting valuable scientific research, and returning home safely. Our experts discuss. Watch: https://youtu.be/TSiGW70kusI

Measuring the space station as it flexes...

LynxCAT software measures the flexure of elements of the International Space Station​ as it orbits the Earth. Those measurements supply important data for designers and users of experiments on the station, to be able to take into account those small movements so their science experiments are not adversely effected.

Today on the International Space Station...the crew continues human health research and conducted a Soyuz descent training exercise to prepare to return to Earth on May 13. http://1.usa.gov/1bw2cZH
NASA astronauts Terry Virts and Scott Kelly spent the 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 air, allowing for an environmentally safe crew cabin.

Never stop reaching for the stars! A good education helped take these astronauts out of this world. They are joining Michelle Obama for College Signing Day today by sporting their college gear to encourage all students to take their education beyond high school. ‪#‎ReachHigher‬

Attempts by Russian ground controllers to regain control of the Progress cargo vehicle have been unsuccessful, and they have said they will not be able to regain propulsive control of it. As a result, the Progress currently is expected to reenter Earth’s atmosphere within the next two weeks. Russian ballistics specialists, working in conjunction with flight controllers in Mission Control Houston and ESA, are continuing to track the vehicle’s path and will provide updates on its anticipated reentry date.

The International Space Station​ crew continue work today with a variety of research and technology demonstration activities. NASA astronauts Scott Kelly and Terry Virts studied the effects of microgravity on rodents to discover how their body systems change in space. The results may promote the development of new drugs tackling the effects of aging and disease on Earth.

The crew was also notified that the planned docking of Progress 59 has been called off. Both the Russian and USOS segments of the station continue to operate normally and are adequately supplied well beyond the next planned resupply flight.
