Spaceflight roundup

As the International Space Station returns to the evening UK skies (times can be seen here), an image of the ISS has been taken from the ground showing the windows of the Cupola. The image was taken on May 4th by R. Vandebergh.

Meanwhile, Universe Today has supplemented the recent 13 things that saved Apollo 13 feature with questions and answers on Apollo 13. Questions were submitted by the public, answers by NASA engineer Jerry Woodfill. Part 1 is here and part 2 is here. Part three is on its way.

Finally, ArianeSpace is a good website linked to a spaceport to watch for news of spacecraft preparations, especially those involving Ariane 5, Soyuz and Vega rockets.
