Tour of the International Space Station

An HD Video Tour of the International Space Station is simple walkthrough of this incredible project and all its corners. This video tour of the International Space Station is an interesting video, but is has also some annoying things on it. It sometimes overuses picture in picture and superimposed images effects in the video. Just because something can be done with a video, doesn’t mean it should be done.

    Five key findings from 15 years of the International Space Station
    Primus interplanetary
    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/12/31/five_key_findings_from_15_years_of_the_international_space_station/

    The International Space Station is the longest-running continuously inhabited human outpost in space, and this year it celebrated its 15th anniversary. As the ISS orbits the Earth it is essentially in a state of free fall, counteracting the Earth’s gravity and providing an ideal platform for science in space.

    Science aboard the ISS is decidedly cross-disciplinary, including fields as diverse as microbiology, space science, fundamental physics, human biology, astronomy, meteorology and Earth observation to name a few. But let’s take a look at some of the biggest findings.

    A cracked window on the International Space Station? That’s not good
    Wait til you see what caused it
    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/05/12/tiny_space_trash_impact_cracks_window_on_international_space_station/

    British astronaut Tim Peake has sparked an orbital kerfuffle after he tweeted a picture showing a crack in the International Space Station’s window. It was caused by space debris.

    Before everyone jumps into their emergency escape pods however, it’s worth noting that the windows on the ISS are quadruple-glazed with layers of transparent aluminum ceramic composite glass. There’s an inner layer to protect against astronauts scuffing up the windows, two 25mm-thick pressure glass panels, and a thinner outer debris panel. It’s the last one that got dinged.

    As to what caused the crack, the European Space Agency said it was probably a fleck of paint that had been shed from an old satellite or booster, or possibly a small metal fragment around a few thousandths of a millimetre across. How is that possible? Because they are travelling very, very fast, and impart that kinetic energy to whatever they hit.

    What’s more worrying is that a larger piece of space junk, around one centimeter across could do more serious damage – possibly disabling a satellite or outside instrument on the ISS. Anything larger than 10 centimeters could “shatter a satellite or spacecraft into pieces,” said the ESA.

    ISS Completes 100,000th Orbit of Earth
    https://news.slashdot.org/story/16/05/16/2248235/iss-completes-100000th-orbit-of-earth

    The International Space Station, the space laboratory that showcases cooperation between Russia and the United States, on Monday orbited Earth for the 100,000th time, Russian mission control said. Traveling at an altitude of about 250 miles (400 kilometers) and a speed of about 17,500 miles (28,000 kilometers) per hour, the space station circles the Earth once every 90 minutes.

    Ok Google. Navigate to the International Space Station
    http://hackaday.com/2017/07/23/ok-google-navigate-to-the-international-space-station/

    If you’d have asked most people a few decades ago if they wanted a picture of every street address in the world, they would have probably looked at you like you were crazy. But turns out that Google Street View is handy for several reasons. Sure, it is easy to check out the neighborhood around that cheap hotel before you book. But it is also a great way to visit places virtually. Now one of those places is the International Space Station (ISS).

    [Thomas Pesquet] in a true hack used bungee cords and existing cameras to take panoramas of all 15 ISS modules. Google did their magic, and you can enjoy the results.

    International Space Station is Racing the Clock After Soyuz Failure
    https://hackaday.com/2018/10/11/international-space-station-is-racing-the-clock-after-soyuz-failure/

    Until a full investigation can be completed by Roscosmos, Russia’s space agency, the Soyuz rocket is grounded. This is standard procedure, as they obviously don’t want to launch another rocket and risk encountering the same issue. But as the Soyuz is currently the only way we have to get humans into space, this means new crew can’t be sent to the ISS until Roscosmos is confident the issue has been identified and resolved.

    Soyuz MS-11, which would have brought up three new crew members to relieve those already on the Station, was scheduled for liftoff on December 20th. While not yet officially confirmed, that mission is almost certainly not going to be launching as scheduled. Two months is simply not long enough to conduct an investigation into such a major event when human lives are on the line.

    The failure of Soyuz MS-10 has started a domino effect which will deprive the ISS of the five crew members which were scheduled to be aboard by the end of 2018. To make matters worse, the three current crew members must return to Earth before the end of the year as well. NASA and Roscosmos will now need to make an unprecedented decision which could lead to abandoning the International Space Station; the first time it would be left unmanned since the Expedition 1 mission arrived in November 2000.

    An Expiring Ticket
    Soyuz spacecraft docked with ISS

    ISS crews are rotated out on a six month schedule because that’s about how long a Soyuz capsule can remain viable in orbit. It has a design life of only 215 days, any longer than that and the vehicle’s corrosive propellants will degrade their tanks. Current ISS crew members Sergey Prokopyev, Alexander Gerst, and Serena M. Auñón-Chancellor arrived at the station in June on Soyuz MS-09, so the clock has nearly run out for their spacecraft.

    If Soyuz MS-09 is left attached to the Station past its design life, it will become unusable. In the worst case, it could even start leaking propellant and endanger the Station. The crew would be forced to cut the spacecraft loose, leaving themselves stranded. This is an option that simply will not be considered by either NASA or Roscosmos. Under no circumstances will either agency intentionally leave three humans in space with no way to bring them home.

    If nothing changes, the current crew will therefore be forced to depart before their only ride home literally eats itself. This would leave the Station unmanned until Soyuz can be flown again and bring a new crew. As there’s no telling when that might be, this would be a crushing blow to ISS operations.

    Sending an Unmanned Lifeboat

    There are a few potential alternatives to leaving the ISS without a crew for the first time in nearly 20 years, but given the risk-adverse nature of human spaceflight, it seems unlikely NASA or Roscosmos will want to tempt fate on any of them

    Uncertain Future

    It’s exceptionally difficult to believe Roscosmos could rush through an incident investigation before the scheduled December 20th launch of Soyuz MS-11, even if the fault is found to be operational and not with the rocket itself. When the unmanned Proton-M rocket was lost in 2013 due to an improperly installed angular velocity sensor, it still look three months for the investigation to clear the rocket for its next flight. Even if the Russian government was content with a truncated investigation, Soyuz MS-11 will have an American and Canadian aboard, so NASA and CSA would surely want time to review the findings themselves.
