Mission controllers have called off today's @SpaceX  #CargoDragon  undocking due to weather conditions at the splashdown site off the coast of Florida.

Happy New Year! The station orbits the Earth at 17,500 miles per hour (28,000 kilometers per hour) enabling the crew to see 16 sunrises and sunsets each day.

At 10:10am ET, @northropgrumman 's #Cygnus  cargo craft was released from the @csa_asc  #Canadarm2  robotic arm completing a 93-day mission attached to the station. More...

There may be no better view of Earth than from the International Space Station. In honor of #EarthDay , enjoy these photos taken by from 250 miles above our home planet. You can search astronaut photography here: . #PictureEarth 

@Astro2fish  orbited over Hurricane#Harvey2017  and photographed the storm bearing down on the Texas coast.

Millions of people saw #Eclipse2017  but only six people saw the umbra, or the moon's shadow, over the United States from space today.

Head on view of the space station from the @SpaceX  #CrewDragon  less than 150 meters away.
