How to free up space on your Pixel and Pixel XL automatically

  How to free up space on your Pixel and Pixel XL automatically One of the most common problems that Pixel phones encounter while updating to the latest version of the software is a notification that says "not enough space available". In such situations, you can always use Smart Storage to automatically free up space by removing old content. Alternatively, you could manually delete files that you no longer wish to keep.

A new space experiment is taking the baking tip "let your bread rise" to the extreme. Slated to launch to the International Space Station in 2018, " Bake In Space " will test a specially-devised dough with a microgravity oven to bake bread in orbit for the first time in history. &.

Chinese Experiment Reaches Space Station in Historic First

  Chinese Experiment Reaches Space Station in Historic First A Chinese experiment is now on the International Space Station (ISS), having reached the orbiting lab Monday (June 5) aboard a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft.NanoRacks, a Houston-based company that helps other companies and institutions make use of the ISS, worked with the Beijing Institute of Technology to fly Chinese DNA research to the orbiting outpost.No commercial Chinese payload had ever flown to the orbiting lab before.China's state-run Xinhua news agency reported Sunday (June 4) that the 8-lb.

Led by group of German scientists, engineers and science communicators, including former shuttle astronaut Gerhard Thiele, Bake In Space is not just about adding to the space station crew's menu, but meeting the needs and desires of future astronauts as spaceflight opens to more people.

"As space tourism takes off and people spend more time in space, we need to allow bread to be made from scratch," Sebastian Marcu, CEO and founder of Bake In Space, told New Scientist.

Breadcrumbs through space history

The Bake In Space experiment will try to produce "typical" weekend German bread rolls using a compact, low-energy convection (or possibly vacuum) oven and a special dough that produces a palatable, but crumb-free bread.

Worm grows second head after visit to space

  Worm grows second head after visit to space After spending more than a month aboard the International Space Station, one partially amputated flatworm came back to Earth with a bizarre new talent.Planarian flatworms are often used in biological studies because of their impressive ability to regenerate parts of their bodies after amputation. A set including both whole and amputated worms was sent to the ISS for a five-week stay and then evaluated back on Earth for an additional 20 months.

Breadcrumbs in space can be a reason for concern. Given the microgravity environment, the tiny particles can cause problems if they get into electrical systems and ventilation filters. They can also pose a health risk if inhaled.

NASA's early solution — after Mercury and Gemini crews smuggled deli sandwiches to space — was to pre-cut their bread into bite-size cubes and coat each in gelatin to keep any crumbs contained. Later, during the space shuttle era and continuing to today on the space station, tortillas took the place of loaves as the bread-product of choice.

"The first thing we need for a sandwich is a piece of bread. Well, up here, we don't have bread like you have on Earth, but we have tortillas," stated astronaut Shane Kimbrough, Expedition 50 commander, in a video recorded aboard the space station earlier this year. "So we use tortillas a lot for our sandwiches."

The difficulties with developing a fresh bread for space are not limited, though, to mitigating the production of crumbs. Bread that is tough and chewy will not produce crumbs but also won't be to most astronauts' tastes.

"This is the biggest challenge," Florian Stukenborg with the research firm TTZ Bremerhaven told New Scientist.

Food for the soul

Bake In Space is about more than the taste of the bread, but also how psychologically-filling the rolls can be.

Russia Launches Robotic Cargo Ship to Space Station

  Russia Launches Robotic Cargo Ship to Space Station The Progress spacecraft is carrying nearly 3 tons of fresh food, fuel and other vital supplies for the space station's Expedition 52 crew.The automated Progress 67 spacecraft launched into orbit atop a Russian Soyuz rocket at 5:20 a.m. EDT (0920 GMT). The mission lifted off from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, where the local time was 3:20 p.m., NASA officials said.

A German company called Bake In Space is testing both a new dough mixture for German bread rolls and an oven specially designed for the ISS and microgravity. While bread on the space station may not sound all that exciting, astronauts must worry about any food that creates crumbs or particles that

The company behind the crumb - free space bread , Bake in Space , aims to provide fresh bread to astronauts in a bid to improve astronauts' well being on Bake In Space , who presented their project at the UK Space Conference last week, will test their bread technology during the European Space

"Besides [being] a source for nutrition, the smell of fresh bread evokes memories of general happiness and is an important psychological factor," the project website states. "It is a symbol of recreational time and procedure down on Earth."

Similar dual-purpose goals were associated with Veggie, a plant chamber used to grow fresh produce on the station, and the Italian ISSPresso microgravity coffee maker tested on the orbiting laboratory in 2015.

Bake In Space, based in Bremen, Germany, is scheduled to launch to the space station during "Horizons," Alexander Gerst's second science mission on the complex as an ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut.

In addition to making bread on the space station, the Bake In Space team is also planning to experiment with creating the batter for sourdough in orbit, which could result in space-born bread going on sale on Earth.

A Florida woman discovered a treasure trove of rare space documents in the trash .
A Navy veteran accidentally stumbled upon a number of rare documents and images from the height of the space age — in the trash outside of a home in Florida. Former aviation electrician Yvette Quinn discovered the documents several weeks ago, and turned them over to WKMG News 6, concerned about the information left on the curb. The documents contained notes and images from a variety of projects, including early drones, early renders of lunar modules, the space shuttle, and a Martian spacecraft, in addition to items such as a rare Gemini –Titan II press manual.
