Watch live as NASA launches new crew to International Space Station

The NASA live stream comes days after the United States space agency broadcasted the return of Expedition 55 Commander Anton Shkaplerov, flight engineer Scott Tingle and Norishige Kanai of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency touching back on Earth.

Sending astronauts to Mars: 18% top priority, 45% important but lower priority, 37% not too important or should not be done.

In a national survey of 2,541 US adults conducted March 27-April 9, 2018, roughly seven-in-ten Americans (72%) say it is essential for the continue to be a world leader in space exploration.

Pew Research Center published the results of their newest survey today.

Russian astronaut Anton Shkaplerov, Norishige Kanai of Japan and American Scott Tingle will end their 168 day mission, handing over command to the Expedition 56 crew.

Across nine specific NASA missions, the majority of participants believe the priority should be monitoring key parts of the Earth's climate system or monitoring asteroids and other objects that could hit Earth. Epps remains in consideration for future missions, NASA said.

Although the media seems infatuated with private companies like Musk's SpaceX, Americans remain traditionally confident in NASA. A third (33 percent) do think that these private companies could advance the industry even without the agency. Bridenstine doesn't deny climate change anymore, but Tuesday he told The Washington Post he has talked to private companies about running the International Space Station.

According to Casey Dreier, director of space policy at the Planetary Society, this shows that the relationship between NASA and the commercial space industry is poorly communicated to the public. "NASA right now is playing a critical role in creating a marketplace for commercial space companies".
