Vice President Kamala Harris Honors Demo-2 Astronauts with Congressional Space Medal of Honor



On Tuesday, Jan. 31 Vice President Kamala Harris awarded former NASA astronauts Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken the Congressional Space Medal of Honor. Hurley and Behnken received the award for bravery in NASA’s SpaceX Demonstration Mission-2 (Demo-2) to the International Space Station in 2020. NASA's Commercial Crew Program began a new era of human spaceflight as American astronauts launched from American soil on an American rocket to the International Space Station. Behnken and Hurley flew on SpaceX's Crew Dragon spacecraft, which lifted off on a Falcon 9 rocket on May 30, 2020, from Launch Complex 39A in Florida. This mission was the final flight test for SpaceX, validating the company's crew transportation system, including the launch pad, rocket, spacecraft, and operational capabilities. Once in orbit, Behnken and Hurley were welcomed aboard the ISS, and became members of the Expedition 63 crew. They performed tests on Crew Dragon in addition to conducting research and other tasks with the space station crew. Upon conclusion of the mission, the Crew Dragon autonomously undocked, re-entered the Earth's atmosphere and splashed down just off Florida's Atlantic Coast. Demo-2 was the final step before NASA's Commercial Crew Program certified Crew Dragon for operational, long-duration missions to the space station, enabling NASA to continue important research and technology investigations onboard the station.

The Moon can be a toxic place 🌑 #shorts



The “lunar hay fever”, as @NASA astronaut Harrison Schmitt described it during the Apollo 17 mission created symptoms in all 12 people who have stepped on the Moon. From sneezing to nasal congestion, in some cases it took days for the reactions to fade. Inside the spacecraft, the dust smelt like burnt gunpowder. The Moon missions left an unanswered question of lunar exploration – one that could affect humanity’s next steps in the Solar System: can lunar dust jeopardise human health? ★ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/ESAsubscribe and click twice on the bell button to receive our notifications.

Exploring the Edge of the Universe with Janna Levin | Podcast Highlights



What is beyond the edge of the universe? Is there even an edge at all? We revisit an episode where Neil deGrasse Tyson and comedian Chuck Nice explore the shape of the universe and all its dimensions with cosmologist, Janna Levin, PhD. Watch the full podcast with Janna Levin: https://youtu.be/Ek3VqAED2wo We start with the basics: is the universe infinite? Janna tells us why it’s still uncertain. Could those distant galaxies we see be images of our own galaxies in the past? We discuss why it’s so difficult to detect other dimensions, if they are even there in the first place, while Janna and Neil help us visualize a 4th dimension. Are higher dimensions too complex to sustain life? Find out more on how to think about dark matter and dark energy. Plus, Janna shares why she thinks the study of dark matter and dark energy are the most important fields of study in science today.

Ethical dilemma: Should we get rid of mosquitoes? - Talya Hackett



Explore how the technology of gene drives could lead to the eradication of mosquitoes and what that could mean for our ecosystems. -- Mosquitoes are responsible for more human deaths every year than any other animal, but very few of the 3,500 mosquito species actually transmit deadly diseases to humans. Scientists have been conducting experiments using engineered technologies called gene drives that could theoretically get rid of the most lethal mosquitoes. So, should we eradicate these pesky insects? Talya Hackett investigates. Lesson by Talya Hackett, directed by Luísa M H Copetti, Hype CG.
