Die Astronauten Terry Virts und Kommandant Barry Wilmore  (USA/NASA) bereiten ein Paar US-Raumanzüge vor für eine Reihe von Außenbordeinsätzen, die im Februar beginnen. Im Laufe des Dienstags luden sie in der „Quest“Luftschleuse die Batterien eines Weltraumanzugs wieder auf und prüften Lüfter und andere Anzug-Komponenten. Virts half auch Samantha Cristoforetti bei Frachttransfers zum und vom kommerziellen SpaceXDragonRaumtransporter. Der Dragon-Frachter vollendete seine Lieferung, als er am 12. Januar eingefangen und am “Harmony”-Modul der Internationalen Raumstation (ISS) befestigt wurde. Er wird am 10. Februar zur Erde  zurückkehren, mit Wissenschaft und anderer Ausrüstung gefüllt für Bergung im Pazifischen Ozean. Ein weiteres mit der ISS gekoppeltes Raumschiff, das ESA Automated Transfer Vehicle 5 (ATV-5: Georges Lemaître) wird am Mittwoch seine Triebwerke zünden, um die Umlaufbahn der ISS leicht zu senken. Die niedrigere Höhe  platziert die Station auf der korrekten Höhe, um den Progress-Frachter zu empfangen, wenn dieser am 17. Februar startet. Die ATV-5-Mission wird am 14. Februar enden, wenn das Raumschiff vom “Swesda”-Modul abkoppelt für eine feurige Zerstörung über dem Pazifik.

Bild via Astronaut Chris Hadfield (Kanada/CSA) auf Twitter (@Cmdr_Hadfield). Venedig (ist eine Stadt im Nordosten Italiens) ist zu sehen. Sie ist die Hauptstadt der Region Venetien und der Provinz Venedig. Ihr historisches Zentrum (centro storico) liegt auf einigen größeren Inseln in der Lagune von Venedig. Die Gesamtfläche Venedigs beträgt 414,6 km², davon entfallen 257,7 km² auf Wasserflächen. Am 31. Dezember 2012 zählte die Stadt 259.263 Einwohner, davon 181.883 in den Stadtteilen auf dem Festland, 58.901 im historischen Zentrum und 29.674 innerhalb der Lagune. In der Lagune befinden sich 118 Inseln. Sie erstreckt sich über etwa 50 km zwischen den Mündungen der Flüsse Adige (Etsch) im Süden und Piave im Norden in die Adria.
