A story in Science magazine this week (posted March 35) about studies of bird migrations in which birds carried little transmitters, with data to be collected by the ISS and transmitted down (apparently to Russia, then Germany). Data was cut off as the Ukraine war started.

NASA is just days away from launching its first space tourism mission to the International Space Station (ISS).

Currently targeting Sunday, April 4, for launch from Florida's Kennedy Space Center, the four-person "private astronaut mission," as NASA describes it, will travel aboard a SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft powered to orbit by the company's workhorse Falcon 9 rocket.

The groundbreaking Ax-1 mission, organized by Texas-based Axiom Space, will be crewed by Canadian investor and philanthropist Mark Pathy, American entrepreneur Larry Connor, former Israeli Air Force pilot Eytan Stibbe, and mission commander Michael López-Alegría, a former NASA astronaut. Pathy, Connor, and Stibbe are reported to have each paid around $55 million to visit the station some 250 miles above Earth.

The amateur astronauts, along with experienced space traveler López-Alegría, are set to spend around 10 days aboard the orbiting outpost, living and working alongside the current crew comprising professional astronauts.

I guess the thing to do is watch what happens, not listen to Russian warnings that cooperation depends on immediately ending sanctions.
