NASA received a debris notification for the space station. Due to the lack of opportunity to properly assess the risk it could pose to the astronauts, teams have decided to delay the Nov. 30 spacewalk until more information is available. go.nasa.gov/2ZEOpPW

Unpack your EVA suit 👩‍🚀👨‍🚀 Tomorrow Kayla Barron and @AstroMarshburn will exit the @Space_Station to replace a faulty antenna system. For this spacewalk I’ll manipulate the @csa_asc Canadarm2 as onboard operator M1, supported by @Astro_Raja as M2 🦾 #CosmicKiss

Zeit für die Raumanzüge!👩‍🚀👨‍🚀 Morgen werden Kayla und @AstroMarshburn ein defektes Antennensystem außerhalb der #ISS ersetzen. Bei diesem Weltraumspaziergang werde ich den @asc_csa Canadarm2 steuern & von @Astro_Raja als "M2"-Bordtechniker unterstützt. Ich bin "M1", der Fahrer😉🦾

Australien fasziniert mich einfach & ich habe versucht, diese Schönheit in Bildern einzufangen📸 Neben Lake Mackay, Great Barrier Reef & Northern Territory, sieht man aber auch unsere dünne & kostbare Atmosphäre, ohne die wir hier auf der Erde nicht leben könnten 🌏#RoundTheWorld

Australia fascinates me with its bright colours & I tried to capture this beauty in some pictures📸 But besides Lake Mackay, the Great Barrier Reef & the Northern Territory, you can also see our thin & precious atmosphere we couldn’t live without & need to protect🌏#RoundTheWorld

Welcome to @Space_Station #Prichal! 👋
Replying to @Anton_Astrey
The International @Space_Station has received its second module this year! Now, the #Prichal Node Module has become part of the ISS Russian segment. Its creation and launch is a big step towards the concept of a renewable national space station with an unlimited lifespan.

Alles in einem: Das @ESA_de Columbus-Labor ist nicht nur Wissenschafts- & Technologiehub, es beherbergt auch das CASA-Quartier (Crew Alternate Sleep Accommodation), in dem ich während meiner #CosmicKiss-Mission schlafen, entspannen & mit meiner Familie in Kontakt bleiben kann 😊

In orbit, we make the most of space 💪 @esa's science lab Columbus is a hub of science & technology, but also the location of my crew quarters, CASA. Short for Crew Alternate Sleep Accommodation, it's a place for me to sleep, relax & keep in touch with family during #CosmicKiss

Bitte berühren 👇 Beim @DLR_de-Experiment „Touching Surfaces“ hinterlasse ich meinen Fingerabdruck auf diesen unterschiedlichen Tastflächen & übertrage dabei auch eigene Mikroorganismen🦠 ForscherInnen am Boden können so neuartige anitimikrobielle Oberflächen testen & entwickeln.

Please touch👇 The @DLR_en experiment "Touching Surfaces" is a touch array made of different metals & structures. When I leave my fingerprint, I also transfer microorganisms. This helps scientists to develop novel antimicrobial surfaces🦠How will steel, copper & brass perform? 🤔

Meine ersten Fotos von der Erde! Diese Bilder von Patagonien in Chile & Argentinien erinnern mich an die Zeit, in der ich im Torres del Paine gewandert bin, im Zelt am Berghang geschlafen habe & riesige Gletscher bestaunen konnte. #EarthObservation #RoundTheWorld

My first #EarthObservation pics! Patagonia in Chile and Argentina. These images remind me of time spent hiking in Torres del Paine, sleeping in a tent on the mountainside and visiting huge glaciers that cracked and rumbled as if they were alive. #RoundTheWorld

Masse ≠ Gewicht ⚖️ Ich bin im Weltraum zwar derzeit schwerelos, aber meine Körpermasse ist definitiv nicht 0. Um hier die Masse messen zu können, brauchen wir Techniken wie diese russische Hardware, die die Änderung der Resonanzfrequenz nutzt, um meine Masse zu berechnen.

Mass and weight are not the same, as can be seen in space. I’m currently weightless but my body mass is definitely not 0. Measuring mass in zero-g requires different techniques to on the ground. This Russian hardware uses the resonant frequency change to make the calculation ⚖️

The vertical service columns have been retracted at the Site 31 launchpad of the #Baikonur Cosmodrome. #Prichal is ready for launch to the International Space Station!
