NASA’s Curiosity rover just snapped another adorable selfie

  NASA’s Curiosity rover just snapped another adorable selfie NASA scientists working with the Curiosity rover have had plenty to be excited about over the years, with discoveries coming regularly, revealing tantalizing details about the Red Planet and its history. The photo, which NASA posted on its website, was snapped on October 11th, and while we see it as a single image, it’s actually the result of 57 individual photos that weres stitched together after the fact.

The space agency takes another step toward embracing businesses on the International Space Station. Astronauts will film the action as it happens inside the clear mold. Adidas hopes the experiment will take place sometime in 2020. It also plans to send along footwear for the astronauts

Thanks to a new collaboration between Adidas and the International Space Station, sneaker technology is now out-of-this-world. Anna McNaught and James Bonanno share things on TikTok, like how they use the bathroom, do laundry and shower on the road.

Astronauts conduct all sorts of experiments on the International Space Station. They grow lettuce, 3D-print meat and watch mice race around. Soon they will be creating shoe parts for Adidas. 

Adidas announced a multi-year partnership with the ISS US National Laboratory on Tuesday. Adidas already sent balls into space earlier in 2019 to "examine the behavior of free-flying soccer balls in microgravity." Its next goal is to have astronauts make shoe mid-soles in space.

The footwear and apparel company will send a device to the ISS that will inject pellets into a mold for a shoe mid-sole, the layer that goes just above the tread. 

This timelapse photo from the space station is breathtaking

  This timelapse photo from the space station is breathtaking The orbiting laboratory completes a full lap of Earth in a mere 92 minutes, so its residents are constantly seeing sunrises, sunsets, and all the stars they could possibly want. It also makes the space station the perfect place to snap a timelapse photo, and NASA’s Christina Koch did just that. Normally, a timelapse image showing this much star activity would take an entire night to capture, but because of the speed at which the ISS orbits Earth, it took just 11 minutes. It’s the result of some 400 separate photos that were captured as the space station passed over a large swath of Africa.

In space , NASA astronauts will perform an experiment using the Boost midsole creation process, without the distraction of Earth’s gravity. It’s the big bang that marks the start of our modern-day space race to create a running shoe ahead of its time, one that will allow athletes to perform in their

Adidas' Boost mid-soles look a lot like Styrofoam and the company is wonder how the pellets will behave and mush together in microgravity. 

Astronauts will film the action as it happens inside the clear mold. Adidas hopes the experiment will take place sometime in 2020. It also plans to send along footwear for the astronauts to try out.

The Adidas partnership is one more example of how NASA has opened the ISS up to commercial businesses. Kids' network Nickelodeon sent a supply of "slime" to the ISS on the same July SpaceX flight that delivered the Adidas soccer balls to the station.

We can expect more of these NASA partnerships as curious companies ask astronauts to age wine, bake cookies and explore new business frontiers in space. At least the crew will be sporting some sweet kicks while they're floating around.  

Tiny, mysterious asteroid is likely the solar system's smallest dwarf planet

  Tiny, mysterious asteroid is likely the solar system's smallest dwarf planet (10) Hygiea is classified as an asteroid but maybe not for much longer.The study, published in the journal Nature on Oct. 28, observed (10) Hygiea with the SPHERE (Spectro-Polarimetric High-contrast Exoplanet REsearch) instrument attached to the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope (VLT) in 2017 and 2018. Combining the observations with advanced numerical computations and modelling, the team was able to see the shape of Hygiea better than ever before.

NASA wants to send humans to Mars. Much of the technology to make such a mission a reality is already in place, and other vital systems could be developed in time for a crewed trip to the Red Planet in the 2030s. It’s exciting, but the journey will be long, and one serious question remains unanswered: How will human bodies react?Scientists have been studying the effects of space travel on our bodies for some time. We know the short-term impacts of weightlessness are minor, but the long-term changes aren’t nearly as well understood.
