The International Space Station comes into view

Catch a glimpse of the International Space Station tonight, in the Northwestern portion of the sky. The best part is that you don’t need a telescope to see this. You can easily recognize it and can’t be mistaken for a plane passing by. Find out what new addition they are adding aboard the ISS which will really improve the astronauts ability to view space around them and earth below them. Also find out if sun spots are dangerous to humans and if the Mars rover will ever get un-stuck from the soil of Mars.
