 From MIT:  NASA gives MIT a humanoid robot to develop software for future space missions
NASA announced today that MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) is one of two university research groups nationwide that will receive a 6-foot, 290-pound humanoid robot to test and develop for future space missions to Mars and beyond.
A group led by CSAIL principal investigator Russ Tedrake will develop algorithms for the robot, known as “Valkyrie” or “R5,” as part of NASA’s upcoming Space Robotics Challenge, which aims to create more dexterous autonomous robots that can help or even take the place of humans “extreme space” missions. (NASA’s challenge is divided into a virtual competition using robotic simulations, and a physical competition using the robot.)
Tedrake’s team, which was selected from groups that were entered in this year’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Robotics Challenge, will receive as much as $250,000 a year for two years from NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directive.

Southern India from Space at Night

In this image you can see the night lights of southern India, taken by NASA astronaut Scott Kelly (https://goo.gl/Ub9jKX) from aboard the International Space Station (ISS). 

Year in Space

Scott Kelly is currently on a one-year mission in space, joined by Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko (https://goo.gl/rGe08R). By extending the mission time from the usual six months to one year the researchers hope to better understand how the human body reacts and adapts to long-duration spaceflight. More on that here:

Scott Kelly frequently posts pictures from space on his Twitter, follow him here: https://twitter.com/StationCDRKelly
