STS-130 / ISS the 2nd EVA.
At night on February 14, 2010 American astronauts Robert Behnken and Nicholas Patrick completed the second of three spacewalks planned for the STS-130 mission.

They left the station at 02:20 UTC and completed a 5 hour, 54 minute spacewalk at 08:14 UTC.
They spent the first part of the spacewalk connecting two ammonia loops, with two lines in each loop, from the Destiny module to Tranquility, hooking the new module to the station’s cooling system, and opened one of those loops to initiate cooling of the module. Then they installed thermal covers on Tranquility’s keel pin and trunnions, to prevent condensation inside the module, outfitted the ... Read more »

55 Anniversary of making decision of Baykonur Cosmodrome building.
On February 12, 1955 the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and the Council of Ministers of the USSR passed the joint Resolution about the building of the number 5 scientific-research and testing area in the structure of the USSR Ministry of Defence (NIP-5), currently known as Baykonur Cosmodrome.
The testing area was to test both military rockets as well as to make researches in the field of space technology. The need for a new test range became evident after the Soviet Union began to develop its own intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). The Kapustin Yar test range near Astrakhan, southern Russia, was located in a more densely populated area and could not therefore be used for ICBM tests.
The new missile test range was located further ... Read more »

STS-130 the 1st EVA.
On February 12, 2010 American astronauts Nicholas Patrick and Robert Behnken performed a 6 hours and 32 minutes EVA.
The new Tranquility module became a part of the International Space Station, giving the orbiting outpost a new utility room and gym with a grand window on the world. The spacewalkers prepped the module for removal from the shuttle payload bay and then worked to install umbilicals after it was attached to the station.

SDO satellite launch.
On February 11, 2010 at 15:23 UTC, SDO (Solar Dynamics Observatory) satellite was launched from SLC-41 launch site of Cape Canaveral, USA.
The launch was performed by United Launch Alliance. The $848 million satellite was orbited by the Atlas-5 / 401 (AV-021) rocket-carrier.
SDO is to probe the sun and unravel its fundamental affects on Earth and society. The satellite's three instruments will take rapid-fire images of the sun, peer into the solar interior and measure its extreme ultraviolet radiation output. It will observe the sun faster, deeper and in greater detail than any previous observatories. The sensors will send up to 150 million bits of data per second, almost 50 times more science data than any other mission in NASA history. SDO will study the sun for at least five years, a ...
