The International Space Station (ISS) circles our planet every 92 minutes. How astronauts look at earth is revealed by never before seen footage from NASA.
Think astronauts are always on duty on the International Space Station? Well you'd be wrong. Even astronauts get time off in space, and holiday, says the German Aerospace Center's Volker Schmid.
Today Astro-Alex and his colleagues arrive at the ISS. After two days of travel, they need to be patient a little while longer: The docking maneuver will take around two hours. You can follow it live.
Alexander Gerst has said in a live-call event from the International Space Station that returning there proved surprisingly easy. Responding to a DW question, he said some of the processes were "like riding a bicycle."
Germany's first Space Station Commander Alexander Gerst told Deutsche Welle that to him, reaching out to young students and kids is the most important part of his "Horizons" mission.
