It is officially operational after four months of in-orbit testing, said the report.
Buying these seats for 2017 and 2018 missions will increase US crew size on the ISS from three to four and maximise ISS science utilisation.
Three rubidium and six hydrogen maser clocks are not working.
To study how zero-gravity conditions affect intracranial pressure, researchers from University of Texas Southwestern Medical Centre recruited volunteer patients who had had a port permanently placed in their head as part of treatment for cancer.
Members of NASA’s New Horizons team will discuss the achievements of the first encounter with Pluto and look ahead to the mission’s next exploration of the Kuiper Belt.
Scientists used Curiosity rover in recent weeks to examine slabs of rock cross-hatched with shallow ridges that likely originated as cracks in drying mud.
The engine burn sets up the spacecraft for an Earth gravity assist this fall as it continues its two-year journey to the asteroid Bennu.
As India is getting ready to set up the world's third advanced LIGO observatory, Fred Raab, an official of the international collaboration, said he expected Indian scientists and researchers to play a crucial role in the LIGO research that seeks to give us a deeper understanding of the universe by tracking the gravitational waves.
Mars and its life-harbouring possibilities have been on the top of many space agencies' list of priorities and there is plenty of evidence suggesting that rivers, lakes and seas covered the planet billions of years ago.
The study combined the world's largest galaxy survey -- the Sloan Digital Sky Survey -- with the largest ever set of radio observations for atomic gas -- the Arecibo Legacy Fast ALFA survey in order to solve the case.
The satellite will be China's first space-based platform for earthquake monitoring, providing a new approach for research.
Vishveswara made an important calculation that was used in the discovery of gravitational waves by LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory) detectors in 2015, from the merger of black holes.
This painstaking research enabled the team to establish how many galaxies we have missed - much like an intergalactic archaeological dig, researchers said.
The giant wave became one of the most prominent features in the planet’s atmosphere for four days in December 2015.
The game is called "Space Science Investigations: Plant Growth," wherein players have to first learn how to navigate in the ISS's micro-gravity environment, or "zero-g."
Cernan, who commanded Apollo 17 - the last Apollo mission - died Monday, January 16, 2017, following ongoing health issues, according to a statement from his family.
Cernan was the commander of Apollo 17, the last Apollo mission which took place in December 1972.

With the latest photograph Thomas Pesquet just shared, just goes to show the energy they put into their work to help the world develop.
The new year started with a beautiful view of the moon, Venus and Mars on January 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
NASA says magnetic arcs of plasma that spiraled above two active regions held their shape fairly well over 18 hours on January 11-12, 2017.
The rocket fell into the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Uchinoura.
Pesquet's career's debut spacewalk was performed alongside NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough and if the images he shared later are anything to go by, looks like he had the time of his life.
Lift-off finally came Saturday at 5:54 p.m. (local time) as planned.
The magnificent image released by NASA was captured by the JunoCam instrument - a visible light camera/telescope - onboard the Juno spacecraft.
The galaxy, which is known as RX J1140.1+0307 and is in the Virgo constellation, presents an interesting puzzle.
Born Michael King Jr (January 15, 1929), Martin Luther King Jr was an American Baptist minister and activist who was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement.
Since this was Thomas Pesquet's first ever spacewalk, both astronauts celebrated the success in a fun way – by cheering each other with a high-five!
The video goes on to explain that astronauts don't make use of their feet since they are in a zero gravity atmosphere.
