    The "BP-Reg" team of the Canadian Space Agency received a special mention and a “coup de cœur” award of the IAPQ (Institut d'administration publique du Québec)! Led by Dr. Hughson of the University of Waterloo, this study aimed to better understand the human cardiovascular system and the fainting experienced by some astronauts upon their return to Earth and by the aging population. Nine astronauts took part in this experiment aboard the International Space Station, including Col. Chris Hadfield. Congratulations!

    Training tomorrow's planetary space explorers In partnership with the Canadian Space Agency, Western University is taking part in a Mars rover simulation from November 16 to 27, 2015. Students must use a remote controlled rover and collect samples of Mars soil (really an analog terrain in Utah). http://www.asc-csa.gc.ca/eng/rovers/2015-analogue-mesr.asp

    Observing our planet from space Canadian satellites and missions are used to help monitor and protect our environment and natural resources. For example, the SCISAT satellite is providing the most accurate measurements to date of chemicals that affect ozone depletion. Moreover, it is providing excellent data about climate change, air quality and pollution. It is an important asset for international environmental policy: http://www.asc-csa.gc.ca/eng/satellites/scisat/default.asp More information on other CSA’s Earth observation activities: http://asc-csa.gc.ca/eng/satellites/default-eo.asp

    “I have not been to space yet. But astronauts who have seen our planet from space, share how beautiful and fragile it seems. To help us protect our environment and our natural resources, we use Canadian satellites orbiting the Earth. (…) From protecting our forests and improving agricultural practices, to ensuring the safe management of our waterways, every day we learn more about Earth from space. Satellites are providing us with the scientific information we need to better understand our planet and make the right decisions to protect it.” Jeremy Hansen, Canadian Space Agency astronaut at the Prime Minister’s #CdnScienceTalk briefing

    Two years ago, the Swarm Constellation was launched by the ESA - European Space Agency to precisely measure the Earth's magnetic fields. Positioned at the front of each of the three satellites is a Canadian Electric Field Instrument (EFI) that helps us better understand the processes that take place in the ionosphere, how space weather influences plasma around the Earth and how this can impact our daily lives.

    Throwback for Air Cadet Jeremy Hansen! Canadian Space Agency (CSA) astronaut Jeremy Hansen takes part tonight in a special event in Ottawa to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Air Cadet League of Canada. As he explains in his video profile, the Air Cadets had a significant impact on him and helped shape the person he has become. Former CSA astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield and former CSA President Walter Natynczyk will also share, by video messages, the key role the Cadets had on their career path. Jeremy’s video profile: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89EVrCiO0Os Photos: Jeremy Hansen and Chris Hadfield as young cadets (personal collections)

    On November 20, 1998, the first module of the International Space Station (ISS), named Zarya, was launched. The construction spanned 13 years and more than 115 space flights were required to assemble this exceptional orbital laboratory. The ISS has a mass of almost 420,000 kilos, the equivalent of about 330 cars. It measures 109 meters long by 73 meters wide, approximately the size of five National Hockey League (NHL) rinks side by side. More info: http://asc-csa.gc.ca/eng/iss/default.asp Animation: NASA
