Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 51 Commander Peggy Whitson and Flight Engineer Jack Fischer of NASA downlinked 4K Ultra-High Definition television from the Destiny Laboratory April 26 in the first-ever live demonstration of the new video capability from space. Speaking to a gathering of the National Association of Broadcasters in Las Vegas, Whitson and Fischer answered questions about the 4K UHD capability as well as questions about life and research in orbit. On April 24, Whitson set a new record for most days in space by a U.S. astronaut --- 534 days --- as she remains in orbit until early September. Fischer arrived on the complex April 20 for a four and a half month mission.
