Fly-through movie of Hebes Chasma, the northernmost part of Valles Marineris. The movie was created from images taken by the High Resolution Stereo Camera on Mars Express.

Space Station Live: July 15, 2013

The Space Station Live recap video for July 15, 2013.

Two NASA spacecraft have provided the most comprehensive movie ever of a mysterious process at the heart of all explosions on the sun: magnetic reconnection. Magnetic reconnection happens when magnetic field lines come together, break apart, and then exchange partners, snapping into new positions and releasing a jolt of magnetic energy. This process lies at the heart of giant explosions on the sun such as solar flares and coronal mass ejections, which can fling radiation and particles across the solar system.

TEDx Talk: An Elevator to Space

Is a Space Elevator pure fantasy or just a technological leap from reality? Markus Landgraf, a mission analyst at the European Space Agency (ESA), explains how to get to space via elevator.

Drinking coffee in space is surprisingly tricky. Physicists researching the strange behavior of fluids onboard the International Space Station have invented a zero-g coffee cup to make the morning "cuppa Joe" a little easier to swallow.

Watch the changing dust density and the growth of structure in this simulated debris disk. Dust quickly collects into clumps and then forms arcs and rings, structures similar to what astronomers observe in actual debris disks.

Outside the International Space Station, Expedition 36 Flight Engineers Chris Cassidy of NASA and Luca Parmitano of the European Space Agency conducted a 6-hour, 7-minute spacewalk July 9 to replace a communications receiver, relocate grapple bars for future spacewalks and install cables for a future Russian laboratory module.

Imagine and Build Hangout on NASA TV

During a Google+ Hangout on NASA Television, Astronaut Leland Melvin, NASA experts, and representatives from LEGO discussed the "NASA's Missions: Imagine and Build" competition.

Like a comet, the solar system has a tail. NASA's Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) has for the first time mapped out the structure of this tail, which is shaped like a four-leaf clover.

SpaceX Grasshopper Software First

On June 14, SpaceX's Grasshopper flew 325 m (1066 feet)--higher than Manhattan's Chrysler Building--before smoothly landing back on the pad. For the first time in this test, Grasshopper made use of its full navigation sensor suite with the F9-R closed loop control flight algorithms to accomplish a precision landing.

Expedition 36 Flight Engineers Chris Cassidy of NASA and Luca Parmitano of the European Space Agency will venture outside the International Space Station twice in July on spacewalks to prepare for a new Russian module and perform additional installations on the station's backbone.

NASA successfully completed two pre-vibration solar array deployment tests of the Global Precipitation Measurement satellite on June 6 and June 15, 2013.

Space Station Flight Director David Korth and Spacewalk Leads Ernie Bell and Karina Eversley discuss upcoming Expedition 36 EVA's or Extra Vehicular Activities to occur on July 9 and July 16 and perform a number of different servicing tasks on the US Segment and route cables for the future Nauka MLM Module.

Last night a Russian Proton-M rocket carrying three GLONASS-M navigation satellites lost control just seconds after launch and went off course and exploded shortly before hitting the ground a couple kilometers from its launch and near another launch pad.

A massive 184 foot replica orange fuel tank with twin solid boosters stands over a newly unvieled Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit just miles from where it was launched thirty-three times into orbit.
