Viewed from Merritt Island, Fla., at 11:25 p.m. EST, the full moon, traveling west to east, is nearly completely in the Earth's shadow, producing a lunar eclipse. Eclipses occur when the Sun, Earth and Moon line up. They are rare because the Moon usually passes above or below the imaginary line connecting Earth and the Sun. The Earth casts a shadow that the Moon can pass through -when it does, it is called a lunar eclipse. They can only occur when the moon is "full." During a total...

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. - An osprey stares intently at prey as it extends its talons. Known as a fish hawk, ospreys often can be seen flying overhead with a fish in their talons. Fish are their sole source of food. Ospreys select nesting sites of opportunity, from trees and telephone poles to rocks or even flat ground, often near water. Osprey nests are found throughout the Kennedy Space Center and nearby Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.

The STS-90 Neurolab payload is honored with a ceremony after being lowered into its payload canister in KSC's Operations and Checkout Building for the last time. This phase of the Shuttle program is winding down as the second phase of the International Space Station (ISS) program gets under way. Microgravity and life science research that formerly was conducted in Spacelab modules, such as Neurolab, will eventually be conducted inside the completed ISS. Investigations during the Neurolab...

Space shuttle Columbia launched April 12, 1981, for the first time on a test flight that would kick off a 30-year career for the nation's orbiter fleet. The flight was commanded by astronaut John Young, a veteran who walked on the moon as commander of Apollo 16. Astronaut Robert Crippen served as the Pilot on STS-1, the first of four space shuttle missions he would fly.
