Two US astronauts embarked Tuesday on what NASA described as a "critical" spacewalk to repair a failed piece of equipment that helps power the International Space Station. The spacewalk by NASA's Peggy Whitson and Jack Fischer beganShow More Summary
Mouse sperm preserved on the International Space Station for nine months gave rise to healthy pups, a new study finds, suggesting that people could one day reproduce safely in space.
The International Space Station had a multiplexer-demultiplexer data relay go on the fritz.
Spacewalking astronauts are making urgent repairs at the International Space Station.
Mouse sperm was freeze-dried and sent to the International Space Station for 288 days before being used to produce healthy pups on Earth.
After nine months in space, mouse sperm has yielded healthy mice, Japanese scientists say. The freeze-dried sperm samples were launched in 2013 to the International Space Station and returned to Earth in 2014. The intense radiation of space caused slight DNA damage to the sperm. Yet, following in vitro fertilization...
By Irene Klotz CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.

The International Space Station is one seriously advanced piece of technology, packed with gadgets and various hardware that allow the on-board astronauts to carry out their various research projects. But, like any aging vehicle, it's been beat up, repaired, and upgraded almost constantly during its nearly 19 years in orbit. Show More Summary
Before they were born, these mice were astronauts. Or, rather, the sperm that would go on to deliver half of their genetic material were. For nine months, mouse sperm was kept aboard the International Space Station, freeze-dried to preserve it. Show More Summary
Astronauts have conducted exactly 200 spacewalks in their ongoing upkeep of the International Space Station, but when Peggy Whitson and Jack Fischer step out on Tuesday, the maneuver will be with an added sense of urgency. NASA has planned...Show More Summary
