Astronaut Alexander Gerst is seated in the Columbus laboratory module participating in the Grip study. Grip is researching how the nervous system adapts to microgravity. Observations may improve the design of safer space habitats and help patients on Earth with neurological diseases. #esa#germany#astronaut#science#nasa#international#space#station

This fish-eye lens view from a window on the International Space Station shows the Northrop Grumman (formerly Orbital ATK) Cygnus commercial space freighter with its cymbal-like Ultra-Flex solar arrays attached to the Unity module. To its right is the Soyuz MS-09 spacecraft docked to the Rassvet module. Cygnus is due to end its mission July 15. The Soyuz MS-09 is planned to return to Earth Dec. 13, carrying Sergey Prokopyev, Alexander Gerst and Serena Auñón-Chancellor home after 192 days in space. #nasa#roscosmos#soyuz#northropgrumman#cygnus#international#space#station#earth

Astronaut Serena Auñón-Chancellor is pictured in the Destiny laboratory module with gear from the Marrow investigation. She was collecting breath samples to analyze and measure red blood cell function to help doctors understand how blood cell production is altered in microgravity. Results may improve the health of astronauts on long-term missions and help patients on Earth with mobility and aging issues. #nasa#astronaut#science#breath#bone#marrow#blood#destiny#earth

NASA astronaut Drew Feustel (@astro_feustel) is pictured tethered to the International Space Station just outside of the Quest airlock during a spacewalk he conducted with fellow NASA astronaut Ricky Arnold (out of frame) on June 14, 2018. During the six-hour, 49-minute spacewalk the duo installed high-definition cameras to provide enhanced views of commercial crew spacecraft, including the SpaceX Crew Dragon and the Boeing Starliner, as they approach and dock with the orbital laboratory. #astronaut#spacewalk#international#space#station#nasa#quest#earth#outerspace

Astronaut Drew Feustel (@astro_feustel) captured this moving image of Kilauea’s current activity in Hawaii, saying, “We can still see the Earth’s fury from ISS as the lava continues to flow from #Kilauea. Expedition 56 is thinking of Hawaii as the dynamic Earth continues to evolve.” Located on the Big Island, Kilauea is one of the state’s most active volcanoes. It’s estimated to be between 300,000 and 600,000 years old and has been erupting since 1983. The recent eruptions started in May after multiple earthquakes hit the island, including a strong earthquake on May 3 that led to the collapse of the Pu'u 'O'o crater on Kilauea and a 6.9-magnitude tremor on May 4. The volcano has spewed lava more than 300ft into the air, and on the morning of May 6, the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) instrument on NASA’s Terra satellite captured images of the top of the eruption plume near the fissure at 6,500ft. #NASA#InternationalSpaceStation#ISS#astronaut#Hawaii#space#planet#geology#volcano Image credit: NASA/@astro_feustel Credit: @NOAA National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS)
