CO2 on the International Space Station

Written by Michael Wilkinson, New York. Join us on ExoLab Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/353757648419746/ If you’ve been tracking the data from the ExoLab on orbit, you may have noticed something very interesting in the carbon dioxide levels. All winter they have been running extremely high, which is creating an unhealthy atmosphere on the station. You may have heard Scott Kelley comment on how his partner Amiko could tell when CO2 levels were up by his mood when…

CanSat and ExoLab were part of the NASA presentation at Clyde Arbuckle Elementary in San Jose

Big thanks to Andres Martinez for inviting us, Magnitude.io, to be part of the “An Evening with NASA” at Clyde Arbuckle Elementary in San Jose. We had a great time introducing our CanSat and ExoLab to some younger students. We got the students reading live data and doing some math, figuring out how high the balloon is by measuring the barometric pressure. They all got it and their parents were so proud. Superintendent Hilaria Bauer of Alum Rock…
