Beautiful photograph of a Russian volcano taken from the ISS by ESA astronaut Tim Peake.
“Spotted a volcano smoking away on Russia’s far east coast this morning – heat has melted snow around top.”
Happy birthday Hubble!
The Hubble Space Telescope turns 26 today and to celebrate the anniversary, NASA released this beautiful video of the Bubble Nebula. Learn more: http://ow.ly/4mZPQb.

Tomorrow, ESA - European Space Agency astronaut Tim Peake will run the 2016 London Marathon on the International Space Station using the on-board treadmill.
At the same time, on Earth, Team Astronaut (a group from ESA and the UK Space Agency) will also be running the London Marathon. One of them will try to establish a new world record for “fastest marathon by a man wearing a replica spacesuit”!
Good luck to Tim Peake and Team Astronaut!
