(European space Agency) astronaut Luca Parmitano Conducted a second space walk in as many weeks on Friday, Nov 22, part of a series to extend the life of the space station's Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02). The AMS captures data from cosmic particle impacts, and with more than 140 billion impacts documented to date, indicates sources of positrons at high energies that could be evidence of dark matter. This invisible form of matter makes up most of the mass content of the universe. 
this month marks the beginning of the twentieth year of continuous human presence abroad the Space Station, the only platform for long duration research in micro-gravity. learning to live and work in space is one of the biggest challenges of long duration spaceflight, and the experience gained on the Space Station supports Artemis, NASA program to go forward to the moon and to Mars.
