Rocket Lab will try to catch the falling first stage of its Electron rocket with a helicopter today (May 2) shortly after the launch of 34 satellites in a key reusability test. Watch it live here. Read more.
'ISS Live!' Tune in to the space station
Find out what the astronauts and cosmonauts aboard the International Space Station (opens in new tab) are up to by tuning in to the "ISS Live" broadcast. Hear conversations between the crew and mission controllers on Earth and watch them work inside the U.S. segment of the orbiting laboratory. When the crew is off duty, you can enjoy live views of Earth from Space. You can watch and listen in the window below, courtesy of NASA.
From NASA: (opens in new tab)
"Live video from the International Space Station includes internal views when the crew is on-duty and Earth views at other times. The video is accompanied by audio of conversations between the crew and Mission Control. This video is only available when the space station is in contact with the ground. During 'loss of signal' periods, viewers will see a blue screen.
"Since the station orbits the Earth once every 90 minutes, it experiences a sunrise or a sunset about every 45 minutes. When the station is in darkness, external camera video may appear black, but can sometimes provide spectacular views of lightning or city lights below."

It could also be more issues for stargazing too :)
Each progress about space was and will be exciting! I wish to see days when base set up on the moon.
