November 2019 Highlights

Here’s a list of SkyFeed’s fav space events from the month of November:

Nov. 2 Rocket Launch – Northrop Grumman’s Cygnus Cargo Spacecraft was sent to the ISS to deliver important supplies including a Zero-g Oven!

Nov. 11 Mercury Transit – In a rare occurrence, Mercury passed directly in front of the sun for a few hours. Unlike a solar eclipse including the Sun and Moon, seeing the Mercury Transit was much more difficult as Mercury is much further away from Earth and appeared as a small dot against the Sun.

Nov. 13 NASA Astronauts Meir and Koch harvest space crops – NASA astronauts picked and sampled space grown Mizuna Mustart Greens aboard the ISS where the Veg-04 project works to create a viable space garden to sustain astronauts with space-grown food.

Nov. 15 & Nov. 22 SPACEWALKS! – Last month we saw the historic first ever all-female spacewalk, but this time around it was time to give astronauts Andrew Morgan and Luca Parmitano a turn. During their spacewalk they worked to repair the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer which is a particle physics instrument that is used to search for antimatter and dark matter.

Nov. 27 Astronaut Snoopy! – New to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Peanuts’ Snoopy donned Apollo-era astronaut gear to celebrate this year’s 50th anniversary since the Apollo Moon Landing.
