Since they are remotely controlled, they must be using live view and a remote tethering software like Canon Utilities. 

The shutter only opens once and closes once while in live view, so I wonder how many hours they get before a camera fails or needs service.

I doubt that. Really. My presumption is that they use a cheap web camera to review the sight of which they took photos and to keep visuals. It much more cost effective. And usually NASA ARE moderate in their spendings. ;-)

Except they describe remotely setting the camera adjustments while flying, which means some sort of thethering.
