June 15, 2015

In the center of the Cosmonaut Gagarin presentation training program NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson. The CPC will be trained astronaut from space and Put crazy Oleg ESA Space Volumes in the main crew Sands-50/51, which starts in November 2016. Preflight preparation complete exam and comprehensive exam training.

Peggy Whitson committed two of the ISS. in April 2008 during the second, it became Commander Expedition-16. The two long space flights it has 377 days in space, a record duration for females. In addition, she has six exits space comprises 39 hours 46 minutes.

It takes a NASA Village to make a space mission successful.

Published on Sep 3, 2015
NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson introduces her NASA Village campaign, which will highlight the talented and diverse NASA work force preparing her for a six month mission to the International Space Station. By sharing the stories of the people making spaceflight possible, the public will gain insight on the variety of jobs and people that play critical roles in spaceflight, and hopefully inspire a younger generation to share their talents with the NASA team someday.

Proxima mission logo

ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet (FR) is assigned to fly on the Soyuz MS-03 spacecraft to the International Space Station, scheduled for launch in November 2016. His crew mates will be cosmonaut Oleg Novitsky of Roscosmos and Peggy Whitson of NASA.

His mission is called 'proxima'. Thomas will be the 10th astronaut from France to head into space and his mission name continues the French astronaut tradition of referring to stars and constellations. The name was chosen from over 1300 entries to ESA’s competition earlier this year.

The winning name was provided by 13-year-old Samuel Planas from Toulouse, France. “Proxima is the closest star to our Sun and is the most logical first destination for a voyage beyond our Solar System,” explains Samuel. “Proxima also refers to how human spaceflight is close to people on Earth.” The logo continues the exploration theme, with star trails evoking future space travel and exploration beyond low-Earth orbit. Two stylised planets can represent our Earth and Moon or the Moon and Mars.

The ‘x’ in Proxima is centred in the middle of the patch to signify the star Proxima Centauri. It also refers to the unknown, as well as Thomas being the tenth French space voyager. The three coloured vertical lines form an outline of the International Space Station and also represent Earth, the Moon and Mars, as well as hinting at the French national flag.

The patch was designed by Thomas Pesquet and Karen Oldenburg.

Training – All three crew members together.

It Takes a NASA Village… To Train an Astronaut

Oleg Novitskiy, myself, and Thomas Pesquet at NASA Johnson Space Center in the Space Vehicle Mockup Facility (SVMF).  This was the first time all three of us Expedition 50/51 crew members were in training together at the same time. Representing Russia, USA, and France!

The Joystick order. Why Blue? Good question...

The principle is simple: follow the curve, while annulling the difference of integral between our trajectory manual and the trajectory of reference, in the middle if necessary to the gap at the end of control, while not exceeding the values of g (acceleration) Calculated on the basis of the error of atmospheric entry in seconds. Questions? Fall in the right place, what.

Astronaut Peggy Whitson Trains For a Spacewalk

http://www.nasa.gov/image-feature/astronaut-peggy-whitson-trains-for-a-spacewalk

NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson trains underwater for a spacewalk at the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL) at Johnson Space Center in Houston. Whitson is scheduled to launch to the International Space Station in late 2016 as part of Expedition 50/51.

Dr. Whitson first traveled to the space station as a crew member of Expedition 5, launching aboard the space shuttle STS-111 mission and returning six months later on STS-113. She was named the first NASA Science Officer during her stay, and she conducted 21 investigations in human life sciences and microgravity sciences as well as commercial payloads. Whitson became the first woman to command the International Space Station in October 2007, leading Expedition 16 during a six-month stay on the orbiting laboratory.

MEDIA ADVISORY M16-100

Media Invited to Interview Future Space Station Crew, Attend Televised NASA Briefing
 
NASA is inviting media to attend a news conference and conduct one-on-one interviews Tuesday, Aug. 30, at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, with three crewmembers currently preparing for a November launch to the International Space Station. The 2 p.m. EDT news conference will air live on NASA Television and the agency’s website.

The Expedition 50/51 crewmembers are NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson, Thomas Pesquet of ESA (European Space Agency), and Oleg Novitsky, of the Russian space agency Roscosmos. This will be Whitson’s third long-duration stay on the space station, the second expedition for Novitsky, and Pesquet’s first trip to the space station.

NASA TV will air a 30-minute video of crew training immediately preceding the news conference, and all three crew members will be available for individual media interviews afterward, in person or by phone.

To request credentials to attend, or reserve an interview opportunity, U.S. media must contact the Johnson newsroom at 281-483-5111 by 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26. The deadline for international media accreditation has passed.

To participate in the news conference by telephone, media must contact the newsroom at least 10 minutes prior to its start. Those following the briefing on social media may ask questions using #askNASA.

During her stay in space, Whitson will become the first woman to have commanded the space station twice, and will break Expedition 48 Commander Jeff Williams’ approaching record for most time spent in space by a U.S. astronaut.

Whitson, Pesquet and Novitsky will launch to the space station from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The trio will join Expedition 50 Commander Shane Kimbrough of NASA, and cosmonauts Andrei Borisenko and Sergei Ryzhikov of Roscosmos, who are scheduled to arrive in September.

While aboard the world’s only orbiting laboratory, Whitson and her crewmates will facilitate some 250 research investigations and technology demonstrations not possible on Earth. Among the experiments is Lighting Effects, which will investigate the impact of a new solid-state, light-emitting diode (LED) system on the crew’s circadian rhythms, sleep and cognitive performance. The Neutron Star Interior Composition Explorer (NICER) experiment is scheduled to arrive at the station during the crew’s stay and will examine the physics, nature and dynamics of neutron stars.

Experiments such as these yield benefits for all of humanity, and will enable future long-duration human and robotic exploration into deep space, including the agency’s Journey to Mars.

Whitson was born in Mt. Ayr, Iowa, and considers Beaconsfield, Iowa, her hometown. She earned a bachelor’s degree in biology/chemistry from Iowa Wesleyan College and a doctorate in biochemistry from Rice University.

Whitson held a number of positions at NASA, ranging from research biochemist to co-chair of the U.S.-Russian Mission Science Working Group, before being selected as an astronaut in 1996. Since then, she served as a flight engineer for Expedition 5 in 2002, commander of Expedition 16 in 2007 and chief of NASA’s Astronaut Office from 2009 to 2012. Whitson has spent 377 days in space and performed six spacewalks.
