New crew members aboard the @Space_Station increase the time available to dedicate to science! 🔬 Learn more about the experiments happening aboard our orbiting laboratory: https://t.co/jELf4Nzpv7 https://t.co/GGr4kA04ws

Those holes in these radish plant leaves on the @Space_station aren’t caused by any type of insect. Astronauts have to keep tabs on which plants they have taken leaf samples of. The most convenient way to do that? Punching holes in the leaves! https://t.co/5jTsWaJDOA https://t.co/WBh3zHbIFh

Crew-1 has gotten to work aboard the @Space_Station! @AstroVicGlover took part in the VECTION study yesterday which uses a VR headset to observe how microgravity affects the way astronauts interpret physical motion, orientation and distance from objects: https://t.co/CKrWPhRuAF https://t.co/JFpQNU5G75

The Crew-1 astronauts are on the @Space_Station. Now it's time to deliver more science for them to conduct! 🚀 From tissue chips to mining microbes, check out what’s launching aboard the next commercial resupply mission. https://t.co/wEgcin8x6x https://t.co/pZGN4OlOrN

Maui, the 2nd largest island within the Hawaiian Islands, hosts one of the largest wind farms in the state.

Why did @NASA decide to grow radishes on the @Space_Station? It's a model plant! 🌱✨

1⃣ Both nutritious and edible
2⃣ Has a short cultivation time
3⃣ Genetically similar to Arabidopsis, a plant frequently studied in microgravity

“The amount of scientific output that you’re going to see from this mission I think is absolutely incredible.” – Kate Rubins of @NASA_Astronauts shares how a larger crew means more @ISS_Research on the @Space_Station: https://t.co/7C6OPYmydH

As more scientists and companies wish to expand the size of the projects they send to low-Earth orbit, a larger doorway on the @Space_Station could help.
The Bishop Airlock plans to provide this new doorway for deploying CubeSats, housing science and more. https://t.co/50bGQQFMp7 https://t.co/58mUGi7jCK

✏️ Pencil us in! At 1pm ET Friday, Nov. 20, we will be discussing science investigations & a new privately funded airlock launching on @SpaceX’s 21st commercial cargo resupply mission to the @Space_Station. More details: https://t.co/hEnCBCkmfi #Dragon https://t.co/3HJuHZewl4

⛏️Mining microbes 🩸A device for counting white blood cells 🩺Tissue chips 🛰️A new airlock 🧠Brain organoids All of these are launching to the @Space_Station as a part of the science experiments aboard the next commercial resupply mission. Learn more: https://t.co/wEgcin8x6x https://t.co/YbF3cKLi1v

And the award goes to… @NASA’s Cold Atom Lab! The @NASAJPL-managed mission received @aiaa's Space Science Award for developing and delivering the uber-cool physics facility to the space station and for its "seminal scientific achievements.” Learn more: https://t.co/SYUBmc5KNI https://t.co/rsBlwWAZel

The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer has been perched on the @Space_Station truss for more than nine years now, searching for evidence of dark matter. Do you know, roughly, how many cosmic rays it has detected during this time? https://t.co/lPx78QOpGt
