We’re saddened by the loss of astronaut Edgar Mitchell. He served as a lunar module pilot on Apollo 14, and was one of twelve American astronauts to walk on the moon. We salute his life and work, pushing the boundaries of exploration: http://go.nasa.gov/1X9hXbP

Hommage de gratitude arborescente et réminiscente pour un homme qui a démontré son héroïsme jusqu'à la dimension infinitésimale et être un des douze astronautes à marcher sur le sol lunaire, mais nous sommes des humains et chacun d'entre nous est amené un jour à sa propre temporalité authentique.Bellissimo et Bravissimo.

It's a galactic merger! About 30 million light years away from Earth, two or more galaxies are spotted merging together by our Hubble Space Telescope. Discover more: http://go.nasa.gov/1X8paZG #NASABeyond

For more than a week, the U.S. has been punctuated by extreme weather events. Tornadoes hit southern Florida, a winter storm with heavy rain hit southern California and a blizzard dropped over 18 inches of snow in the Great Plains. While all this was happening on Earth, we’ve been watching from space. Take a look: http://go.nasa.gov/1P9COsn

Come fly with us! Take a 360 video ride with our battery powered, 10-propeller GL-10 Greased Lightning plane. This prototype can take off like a helicopter and fly efficiently like an aircraft. Start your ride: https://youtu.be/rTF1SL5uGeI

+Bill Lively you come out swinging and act like a dick to everyone on here and complain that people criticize or condemn you for it?
Just what the hell are you expecting?
Seriously, if you don't want to deal with vitriol, then don't throw the first stone.... Common sense, man.

Could GPS be used to provide more accurate and timely information about earthquakes? We’ve upgraded scientific GPS stations with sensors that monitor for earthquakes while also collecting GPS, pressure, temperature and seismic data in real-time across southern California to find out.

This galaxy, located nearly 500 million light years from Earth, contains a supermassive black hole at its center. Energy released from the black hole produces a spectacular jet of particles traveling at nearly the speed of light into intergalactic space: http://go.nasa.gov/1Qcy5nr

They refuse to allow a process of regulation. We should teach the reasons in middle schools.

We’re teaming up with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to take a closer look at storms brewed by this year’s strong El Niño. During this mission, we’re sending our remotely piloted Global Hawk aircraft out over the Pacific where it will transmit data on temperature, humidity and wind speed. This information will be used to help improve weather model forecasts. Find out more: http://go.nasa.gov/1X9aitW

Hills of water ice on Pluto “float” in a sea of frozen nitrogen and move over time like icebergs. The hills, which are located in the vast ice plain informally named Sputnik Planum within Pluto’s “heart,” are likely miniature versions of the larger, jumbled mountains on the plain’s western border.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, now each one has been installed. The 18th and final mirror segment has been successfully installed on what will be the biggest and most powerful space telescope ever launched: The James Webb Space Telescope. These mirrors will focus light from previously hidden realms of the very beginnings of the universe. Find out more: http://go.nasa.gov/1P9jlYT #NASABeyond

Fire the thrusters! After a successfully adjusting its flight path today, our solar-powered Juno spacecraft is continuing its journey to Jupiter. This is the first of two trajectory adjustments that fine tune Juno’s orbit around the sun, perfecting our rendezvous with Jupiter on July 4. Find out more: http://go.nasa.gov/23JwYFE #NASABeyond

Introduction

NASA's mission is to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research. To do that, thousands of people have been working around the world and in space for more than 50 years, trying to answer some basic questions. What's out there in space? How do we get there? What will we find? What can we learn there -- or learn just by trying to get there -- that will make life better here on Earth?


NASA's work is diverse: proving flight technologies; creating capabilities for sustainable human and robotic exploration; exploring Earth, the solar system and the universe beyond; developing critical enabling technologies such as the space shuttle; and conducting science in orbit aboard the International Space Station. With NASA you can explore the universe and discover Earth.
