In today's photo of the day, we see astronaut Steve Bowen in training as NASA says it's working on plans to send astronauts into space to land on an asteroid.
Though the mission isn't planned to take place until the 2020s, that isn't stopping astronauts from simulating an asteroid landing in a 40-foot-deep swimming pool at a Space Center in Houston.
If you have photos you'd like us to select as our picture of the day, send them our way for consideration.
