A little more than three years after the December 1993 repair mission that corrected its blurred vision, the Hubble Space Telescope was ready for another tune-up. In February 1997, the Shuttle Discovery was launched on STS-82, the second Hubble servicing mission. Over the course of five days, two pairs of astronauts completed five spacewalks and gave Hubble an extensive overhaul. Image credit: NASA

We are deeply saddened to hear that John Glenn passed away today. As one of the first NASA astronauts, Glenn completed the Friendship 7 mission on February 20, 1962 to become the first American to ever orbit our planet. More than three decades later in 1998, at 77 years of age, he became the oldest person in space when he flew on Discovery mission STS-95. /// "If there is one thing I've learned in my years on this planet, it's that the happiest and most fulfilled people are those who devote…

As a life-long, avid Sims player, I was pretty excited to hear about NASA Science Investigations: Plant Growth. Released last month, the educational app lets you zoom around the International Space Station (ISS), complete various astronaut tasks, and even interact with a fellow astronaut. Most importantly, it teaches you how to grow crops like the ones NASA astronauts tend to by using the Vegetable Production System (Veggie) aboard the ISS.
