World's 1st female spacewalking team inspires others

NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir exited the International Space Station on Friday, the first time in a half-century of spacewalking that a woman floated out without a male crewmate. Their job is to fix a broken part of the station's solar power network.news

Going inside NASA's Vehicle Assembly Building

We get a rare look inside NASA Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB). Inside is a critical component of the planned Space Launch System (SLS), the pathfinder rocket. Weighing in at 228,000 pounds, the pathfinder is a full-scale mock-up of the rocket’s core stage and will provide the power necessary to send NASA’s Orion spacecraft beyond Earth’s orbit and to the Moon.

Planet-hunting NASA satellite captures a star being ripped apart by a black hole

For the first time, NASA’s planet-hunting Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) was able to watch the “cataclysmic phenomenon” of a star being torn apart by a black hole from beginning to end. Using follow-up observations from telescopes, astronomers were able to capture unprecedented data about the star-destroying events known as tidal disruptions.
