NASA Social with NASA Astronaut Karen Nyberg


NASA Astronaut Karen Nyberg spoke with social media followers and their guests at NASA Headquarters after recently returning from a 5.5-month stay aboard the International Space Station. Participants learned how Karen lived and worked from space, and as an artist, quilting and drawing during her off time; how she managed the unique aspects and challenges of parenting off the planet ; how as an astronaut and fitness lover, she exercised while on orbit ; current scientific experiments underway aboard the space station; how researchers study the effects of a weightless environment on the human body to help protect astronauts for long-duration spaceflight missions in the future; and how the space station is being used to test groundbreaking, new technologies that will help astronauts safely reach new deep space destinations, including an asteroid and eventually Mars.

  1. Lol @ 21:30 feedback troubles. I'm an audio technician myself. I know what that's like 😉

    Karen's Lav mic is pointing at her shoulder. It needs to be pointing at her throat, so the gain doesn't need to be as high.
