At Work in the Destiny Laboratory of the International Space Station
NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins, Expedition 38 flight engineer, performs in-flight maintenance on combustion research hardware in the Destiny laboratory of the International Space Station in this image taken on Dec. 30, 2013. Hopkins replaced a multi-user droplet combustion apparatus (MDCA) fuel reservoir inside the combustion integrated rack (CIR). The CIR includes an optics bench, combustion chamber, fuel and oxidizer control, and five different cameras for performing combustion experiments in microgravity. Click here for a larger image.

Fascinating pictures especially of the Saturn rings and the Vog on the top of the Volcano.

Some are indeed breath-taking. The grand machinery always fascinated me, but "cubesat" is also interesting. It just looks like a sugar cube against the magnificent space background!

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
