"Solid spacecraft Curiosity, brought to us useful information on the radiation level on the surface of the Red Planet in deep space.
On Friday, August 16 and Thursday August 22, NASA TV will broadcast live spacewalk outside the International Space Station, two Russian cosmonauts. Two Russian cosmonaut flight engineers - Fedor and Alexander Jurchihin Misurkin, leave the airlock, "Pierce" at about 10:40 in the morning and come out into open space,
In the next few weeks will have to the perfect opportunity to chance the three brightest asteroids in the sky in the middle of stargazing. These cosmic objects are small in size, but quite bright.

Recently open a new optical laser ground station in Spain on the island of Tenerife. Enhanced laser system requires a significantly higher speed and quality of the data in the interaction with spacecraft located outside our solar system. This system is ready for operation after a series of crucial tests on the ground.
Laser system, which transmits data in the infrared, can open the door to the future in the field of reception of large amounts of information received from the spacecraft from Earth orbit, and the orbit of Mars and other more distant planets.
