Did you know there is an instrument outside the International Space Station sifting through cosmic ray particles to help us learn more about the origins of our universe?

The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) has been looking for signs of dark matter from its spot on Station since 2011, but well after surpassing its three-year anticipated lifespan, it was in need of some repairs.

In this episode of Tech on Deck, join NExIS and NASA Astronaut Andrew Morgan to learn about how NASA Johnson Space Center and Goddard Space Flight Center leveraged their vast experience developing tools and techniques in support of the Space Shuttle, Station, and Hubble programs to make these extremely complex repair spacewalks possible.
