(Space Fellowship) Cosmonauts Busy as U.S. Segment Crew Takes Day Off

A pair of cosmonauts suited up for a dry run of Wednesday’s spacewalk while Dragon will hang on to the International Space Station for a few more days. Commander Max Suraev and Flight Engineer Alexander Samokutyaev spent Monday readying the Russian Orlan spacesuits they will wear when they exit the Pirs docking compartment Wednesday for a six-hour spacewalk. The duo donned their spacesuits for a spacewalk dry run. They checked suit controls and communications gear and conducted prelim&nbsp;[...]<div class="feedflare"> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=yzL9_rjeJi8:9wBMHxAD5DA:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=yzL9_rjeJi8:9wBMHxAD5DA:-BTjWOF_DHI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=yzL9_rjeJi8:9wBMHxAD5DA:-BTjWOF_DHI" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=yzL9_rjeJi8:9wBMHxAD5DA:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=yzL9_rjeJi8:9wBMHxAD5DA:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=yzL9_rjeJi8:9wBMHxAD5DA:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=yzL9_rjeJi8:9wBMHxAD5DA:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=yzL9_rjeJi8:9wBMHxAD5DA:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/ISF/~4/yzL9_rjeJi8" height="1" width="1"/>

(Space Fellowship) NASA's SDO Observes an X-class Solar Flare

The sun emitted a significant solar flare, peaking at 1:01 a.m. EDT on Oct. 19, 2014. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, which is always observing the sun, captured an image of the event. Solar flares are powerful bursts of radiation. Harmful radiation from a flare cannot pass through Earth's atmosphere to physically affect humans on the ground, however -- when intense enough -- they can disturb the atmosphere in the layer where GPS and communications signals travel.

(Space Fellowship) NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Studies Comet Flyby

NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, which has sent home more data about Mars than all other missions combined, is also now providing data about a comet that buzzed The Red Planet today (Oct. 19). The orbiter continues operating in good health after sheltering behind Mars during the half hour when high-velocity dust particles from comet C/2013 A1 Siding Spring had the most chance of reaching the paths of Mars orbiters. It maintained radio communications with Earth throughout the comet's closes&nbsp;[...]<div class="feedflare"> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=9ZFCu7YzI7w:WLLiqm2Gzaw:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=9ZFCu7YzI7w:WLLiqm2Gzaw:-BTjWOF_DHI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=9ZFCu7YzI7w:WLLiqm2Gzaw:-BTjWOF_DHI" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=9ZFCu7YzI7w:WLLiqm2Gzaw:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=9ZFCu7YzI7w:WLLiqm2Gzaw:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=9ZFCu7YzI7w:WLLiqm2Gzaw:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=9ZFCu7YzI7w:WLLiqm2Gzaw:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=9ZFCu7YzI7w:WLLiqm2Gzaw:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/ISF/~4/9ZFCu7YzI7w" height="1" width="1"/>

(Space Fellowship) NASA's Mars Odyssey Orbiter Watches Comet Fly Near

The longest-lived robot ever sent to Mars came through its latest challenge in good health, reporting home on schedule after sheltering behind Mars from possible comet dust. NASA's Mars Odyssey was out of communications with Earth, as planned, while conducting observations of comet C/2013 A1 Siding Spring on Sunday, Oct. 19, as the comet flew near Mars. The comet sped within about 88,000 miles (139,500 kilometers) of Mars, equivalent to about one-third of the distance between Earth and Eart&nbsp;[...]<div class="feedflare"> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=lyhzZjJaEYo:95miv5MzovQ:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=lyhzZjJaEYo:95miv5MzovQ:-BTjWOF_DHI"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=lyhzZjJaEYo:95miv5MzovQ:-BTjWOF_DHI" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=lyhzZjJaEYo:95miv5MzovQ:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=lyhzZjJaEYo:95miv5MzovQ:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=lyhzZjJaEYo:95miv5MzovQ:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></a> <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?a=lyhzZjJaEYo:95miv5MzovQ:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/ISF?i=lyhzZjJaEYo:95miv5MzovQ:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/ISF/~4/lyhzZjJaEYo" height="1" width="1"/>
