July, Thursday January 8, 2021 – Before Leaving the International Space Station today, you can see more than 4,400 pounds (2,000 kg) of science in the cargo compartment of the Dragon Samples and other materials.
European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Thomas Pesquet posted this image on Twitter as the crew prepared to send the spacecraft for a 37-hour return journey from Earth.
In another tweet, the French astronaut shared some details of the experiment: “Just before closing the hatch, we filled it with frozen body fluids: blood, urine, saliva … and what I gained. Not to mention,” he wrote .
Due to severe weather in Florida caused by Tropical Storm Elsa, the return of the CRS22 Cargo Dragon mission to Earth has been delayed since Tuesday (July 6). Is Tereza Pultarova
An innovative instrument for monitoring sea level and freshwater resources arrives at Thales Alenia Space before being integrated into the SWOT satellite.

This instrument, the so-called fringe interferometer, was designed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California and will fly into space in November 2022 as part of the SWOT surface water and ocean terrain mission. Instead of measuring the water level directly below the satellite one point at a time like existing altimeters, SWOT measures two 60-meter-wide water surface zones below. This will enable the mission to accurately measure the surface of relatively small bodies of water such as lakes and rivers for the first time.
According to Thales Alenia Space, when monitoring ocean circulation, SWOT will provide ten times higher resolution than existing technologies. This mission will help scientists better understand the impact of the water cycle in coastal areas on marine life, ecosystems, water quality and energy transfer, and will produce better ocean and atmospheric behavior models.

Tuesday, July 6, 2021: Astronauts who will fly to the International Space Station later this year during exercises at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas Practice dealing with space fires. Five members of
‘s upcoming Expedition 66/67 participated in the training, and smoke masks were installed in the space station model.
“Fire, decompression or toxic atmosphere: at @Space_Station, we must be prepared for anything,” European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Matthias Maurer tweeted a series of training images. “In this extreme situation, teamwork and coordination are crucial, so we practice emergency procedures together.”
Maurer will fly to the space station in late October this year and ride on the new SpaceX Crew Dragon currently under construction as part of Crew3 Space capsule. NASA astronauts Raja Chari, Thomas Marshburn and Kayla Barron will perform the same mission. Russian astronaut No.
Anton Shkaplerov will arrive at the space station on the Russian Soyuz MS19 mission in early October, and No.
will also participate in the exercise. Shkaplerov will arrive at the space station with two space tourists, Russian film director Klim Shipenko and actress Yulia Peresild. The two will shoot a movie at the station and leave with Russian astronaut Oleg Nowitzki. Teresa Pultarova
