They picked a good location, near the coast and with a relatively far south latitude. It will be hell having to travel to it though, it's about as far away from the rest of the world as you can get wink But it could be very good for the development of Far Eastern Russia in the future.

They also didn't mention about any rockets other than Soyuz, like Angara and Rus, which will become important in the future. There is a longer video here which talks at greater length and also mentions the Rus-M launch vehicle.

To aid in keeping astronauts on a natural sleeping cycle, the U.S. Orbital Segment of the International Space Station will be outfitted with insomnia-fighting LED lighting by 2016. The lighting will change color depending on the time of day in order to promote the production of the correct hormones and chemicals at the right times of day so that astronauts will be able to sleep more easily during their sleep cycles. These lighting changes will essentially be an artificial version of Earth's natural day/night cycle.

44 years ago today the crew of Apollo 8 became the first humans to visit and orbit another world. Almost exactly 44 years to the minute ago, at 16:40 UTC, the famous first color image of "Earthrise" was photographed:



In honor of this anniversary (and because I don't like the NASA version), I have done my own version of this image:

NASA has released a new animation showing its Orion crew capsule with ESA-built (for this flight only) service module on Exploration Flight 1 (EF-1) in 2017. This will be the first flight of the Space Launch System, second flight of Orion, first flight of Orion with a service module, and the final planned unmanned test flight of Orion/SLS, with a crewed lunar orbital flight planned for 2021 (possibly as early as 2019).

The Progress 50 (Progress M-18M) spacecraft on approach to the International Space Station yesterday. It docked less than 6 hours after its launch from Baikonur Cosmodrome.



Another view of the Progress

There are indications of possible future cooperation between ESA and China on manned spaceflight in the future. This could lead to experiment exchanges where ESA experiments are conducted on a Chinese space station, and possibly even Chinese experiments on ISS, and could even lead to ESA astronauts flying with the Chinese on joint space station crews. China is reportedly also interested in ESA's International Berthing and Docking System for use on their spacecraft due to problems that they've had with their current docking system which is based on the Russian Androgynous Peripheral Attach System (APAS) used on ISS.
