Post navigation Residents in West Michigan reported seeing an odd light in the sky, as well as hearing a loud boom that shook their homes. It is believed the loud noise and light were associated with a meteor gathering data for NASA. The event occurred across a variety of counties and served as a mysterious reminder of the unknown. Cosmonaut Oleg Skripochka recently completed an engineering experiment on the International Space Station, in which he was strapped into a robotic arm and allowed to be slowly maneuvered around the exterior of the space station. This was the first time any cosmonaut had done such an experiment, and is a first in terms of exploring novel ways to work in space. Ultimately it was a success, and the experiment has opened up new potential uses of robotic arms in space.
