One of the favorite Science Academy sessions for Cadets is the one which introduces Commander Williams Shepherd, and Sergei Krikalev and Yuri Gidzenko. They are the three men who first occupied the International Space Station to run various experiments. It could be argued, though, that from 31 October 2000 to 19 March 2001 the men were the most important experiment. How would they fare physiologically and psychologically?

Today is the fifteenth anniversary of that experiment, and even though other Earth orbit occupiers came before them, this Station and the people that make it their temporary home caught the public's attention in new ways.

This morning there was a news conference concerning this fifteenth anniversary. That news conference will be replayed on all three NASA-TVs at 2:30pm, 6:30pm, 10:30pm, and at 6:30am tomorrow morning.

The ISS's fifteenth anniversary is mentioned in NASA's review of the agency's top stories of 2015. This review will be shown on NASA-TV1 and NASA-TV2 at least twenty times between now and the end of the year.

The STEM in 30 program "Living and Working in Space" will be rebroadcast tomorrow at 12:30am and Monday at 12:30am on NASA-TV1 and NASA-TV2. The STEM in 30 program "ISS: Fifteen Years of Continuous Human Presence" will be rebroadcast Sunday at 1:30am on NASA-TV1 and NASA-TV2.

Due to the Wind Chill Advisory which does not end until 10am, and the Hard Freeze Warning which lasts until 11am (both alerts come from NOAA), Science Academy is cancelled for this morning.
