Because it would be dumb.
It’s the earliest date this is possible but this could leave American astronauts stranded on the ground.
We really do contaminate everything we touch — and space is no exception.
Microbes seem at home in the space lab.
NASA just wins, can everyone stop with the fidget spinner videos now?
No reason to worry, just an 8-ton space station crashing down on Earth.
It’s the best place to get lost — and trust me, you will.
One small step for bread, one giant leap for mankind.

British astronaut Tim Peake ran the London Marathon on a treadmill aboard the International Space Station.
Beam is basically a huge inflatable structure which is easy to carry and provides ample living space for astronauts once it expands. Props to SpaceX for yet another successful Dragon mission, but also to Bigelow Aerospace — a company which might become a household name in the coming decade if their plan works: build the first space hotel!
SpaceX will launch as early as April 8 an inflatable habitat module destined for the International Space Station.
When researchers started raising 48 bacteria species aboard the International Space Station, they weren’t really sure what to expect. They wanted to see how the microorganisms would adapt to living in microgravity, but one species hasn’t only adapted – it’s doing better than on Earth. According to a recent study, Bacillus safensis JPL-MERTA-8-2 – a strain first discovered on one of
Astronaut Scott Kelly returned to planet Earth on Thursday, after a landing in which everything went smoothly, as expected.
There’s a now a third private space entity that’s been screened and granted permission to ferry cargo to and fro the International Space Station. Joining SpaceX and Orbital will be the Sierra Nevada Corp. which plans to use a reusable winged craft that looks like a mini-shuttle. The design allows for a soft landing on a runway, instead of dropping the ocean, that might prove more effective for retrieving sensitive scientific instruments.
NASA just released their famous pictures taken from the International Space Station in 2015. The images were shot by astronauts aboard the ISS and the list was selected by NASA Johnson Space Center’s Earth Observations team. It wasn’t an easy job with many bedazzling photos fighting for the top positions. 1. Lake Chad and a Bodele Dust Plume, Sahara The arid landscapes
