(CNN) Self-proclaimed amateur astronomer Alan Strauss took this photo of the sun on New Year's Day from a park in Tucson, Arizona. But do you see that faint stitching that's bisecting the sun's middle? That's the international space station. Strauss, the director of the University of Arizona's Mt. Lemmon ...

Space may be big, really big, but Earth orbit is getting a bit crowded as space debris accumulates and threatens operational spacecraft. Riding aboard the last Dragon cargo mission to the international space station was part of the answer to this problem. NASA's Space Debris Sensor (SDS) will be ...
He set up telescopes with two friends shortly before noon in a Tucson park and waited to try to capture a photo of the international space station as it passed in front of the sun. He had less than a second to take photos of the space station screaming through the sky. Instead of taking a series of photos with ...
OU plant-gravity experiment now aboard international space station ... designed an experiment with small "Arabidopsis thaliana" seedlings (basically the "model" plant species for scientific experiments) placed in small growth capsules onto a "big centrifuge" that will run on the international space station.
As cities around the world hold out in anticipation to welcome in the New Year, astronauts in the international space station (ISS) have a different plan. We're still not exactly sure what this plan is, but in a recent video the team shared their past New Years celebrations and hinted at what this year may hold.

As millions of people on Earth celebrate Christmas with their families and friends today (Dec. 25), exchanging gifts and sharing elaborate meals, astronauts at the international space station (ISS) will do much of the same -- while floating weightlessly some 250 miles (400 kilometers) above the Earth.
December 25th is upon us and that the day will be packed with gift openings, good food, and family time for millions of people here on Earth. Believe it or not, things aren't all that different for astronauts floating some 250 miles above our planet on the international space station, and NASA has taken the ...
The international space station is one of the few nonstellar things up there that we can see from down here without instruments.
