“Some views you don’t just see with your eyes, but rather you feel them in your soul.” — NASA Astronaut Anne McClain Orbiting the Earth every 90 minutes, astronauts aboard the space station see 16 sunrises and sunsets daily. To keep crew members’ circadian rhythms in check, the space station uses special lights with full intensity and color temperature control, designed to mimic the true diurnal cycle of sunlight.

You’ve trained to be an astronaut. You prepared for a spacewalk. You’ve researched advanced space science. Now you are a barber on a high-flying hair salon. Just another day on orbit for astronauts Anne McClain, Nick Hague and David Saint-Jacques. Those hair clippers also contain a suction tube that vacuums the loose hair to keep the cabin atmosphere clean. #nasa#csa#astronaut#hair#haircut#international#space#station#style

Expedition 59 Flight Engineer David Saint-Jacques of the Canadian Space Agency takes a quick self portrait while working outside the International Space Station. In a six and a half hour spacewalk, Saint-Jacques and NASA astronaut Anne McClain successfully established a redundant path of power to the Canadian-built robotic arm, known as Canadarm2, and installed cables to provide for more expansive wireless communications coverage outside the orbital complex, as well as for enhanced hardwired computer network capability. The duo also relocated an adapter plate from the first spacewalk in preparation for future battery upgrade operations. #nasa#csa#unitedstates#canada#astronaut#international#space#station#walk#spacewalk#suit#spacesuit#earth#power
