A visitor tries the flight simulator ‘Birdly’ at the exhibition "Animated Wonderworlds" at Zurich’s Museum for Design, 11/17/15. Birdly simulates the flight of a red kite over New York City, controlled by the entire body of the user. The flight simulator was developed by scientists at Zurich University of the Arts. (Reuters)

Technicians inside a clean room at NASA's Langley Research Center, in Virginia, prepare the Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment III (SAGE III) instrument for shipment to NASA's Kennedy Space Center on 11/24/15. The ozone and aerosol-measuring instrument is set for a March 2016 launch to the International Space Station.  (NASA)

Inna Nosikova exits a mock-up spaceship after an eight-day simulated flight to the moon, in Moscow, Russia, on 11/6/15. Nosikova and her five female colleagues climbed into a grounded space capsule to imitate a lunar flight and test the effects of confinement and stress that come with space travel. (AP)

David Wolff, a research scientist with NASA, opens the door to a mobile workspace on a hilltop near Moclips, Washington on 11/6/15. Wolff and other scientists measured raindrops and snowdrops in one of the wettest spots in the US.  Scientists are attempting to validate, on the ground, how well global satellites measure precipitation from space. (AP)

After sitting behind the sun for nearly a year NASA’s Solar and Terrestrial Relations Observatory Ahead, or STEREO-A, resumed its normal science operations on 11/17/15.  This is an image of the sun taken with the Extreme Ultraviolet Imager aboard STEREO-A. This image shows the sun in wavelengths of 195 angstroms, which are typically colorized in green. (NASA/STEREO)

In a photo released 11/24/15, NASA tests a new spacesuit developed for the Orion spacecraft. The space agency’s engineers used a mockup of Orion’s cabin in the aircraft to evaluate how astronauts can get into their seats during various operational scenarios, perform tasks at different suit pressures, and to test seat hardware.
