Our New Horizons spacecraft may be far from the Earth and all on its own, but we can still talk to it! So the real question, how long will the spacecraft have power to send back a signal? Watch this episode of 'Pluto in a Minute.' https://youtu.be/DmtH0cRLUsA #PlutoFlyby

+Justin Rens It has plutonium in it, how much boom potential do you need?

Did you know there are about two dozen abandoned nuclear reactors in orbit? Fortunately we have about 10,000 years before their orbits decay so much that they re-enter the atmosphere.

Final tests are being completed on the mirror segments for our new NASA Webb Telescope. This infrared telescope is the scientific successor to the Hubble Space Telescope, and will be the most powerful space telescope ever built. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1MwmSRp

The sky could become increasingly crowded as personal and commercial uses of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), commonly called drones, become more popular. We're hosting a UAS traffic management convention July 28-30 to understand and define the impact and challenges ahead. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1MsI5Lc #UTM2015.

As Tropical Depression Halola made landfall in southern Japan on July 26, our NPP Suomi satellite captured data from overhead. This visible-light image taken of the storm revealed that it appeared to be unraveling. Learn more: http://go.nasa.gov/1MszJ68 #EarthRightNow

Did our New Horizons spacecraft make it to Pluto right before the atmosphere collapsed? Watch this episode of Pluto in a Minute.' #PlutoFlyby https://youtu.be/g8DZLg-LxV0

+Brad Golden​ I'll come to grand rapids so you can curse me out, but you have to do it over beers while we brewery hop. :-P

Oh... And you're buying.

'Once in a Blue Moon' typically means rare or absurd. This year, it means the end of July. The second full moon of July is just around the corner. According to modern folklore, it's a "Blue Moon." https://youtu.be/XyBp-EYrwTA

Tomorrow, our Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter will make its biggest orbit maneuver since 2006 in preparation for the next Mars lander, InSight. This new lander is scheduled to arrive on the red planet in September 2016, and we need the orbiter in a position to receive radio transmissions as the lander touches down.

That won't work. Short-term-thinking Politicians and business-owners only want endless growth., and will ignore evidence that tells them that it is a mistake.

Medicine has a word for endless-growth. They call it "Cancer".

See dwarf planet Ceres like never before in new maps from our NASA Dawn Mission! A diverse topography can be seen on the surface, and official names have been determined for some of these craters and other features. Learn more: http://go.nasa.gov/1JONbfB #NASABeyond

Our New Horizons spacecraft still has 50 gigabits of data remaining on board from its #PlutoFlyby. To completely downlink all of this data, it will take 500 days! Learn why in today’s ‘Pluto in a Minute’: https://youtu.be/RjEesn2TFBA

+David Ball New Horizons'  'battery' is an RTG - a Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator - which produces power continuously whether or not it is used, and so the idea of 'conserving battery power' in the conventional (ie, chemical battery) sense, as one might conserve the battery, say, in a flashlight by not using it, does not apply. RTGs last for many years. New Horizons' RTG will last for at least another decade.

This expanded color photo captured by our Cassini spacecraft combines images taken using ultraviolet, green and infrared filters. This expanded range of colors allows us to see differences in material and textures on Saturn’s moon Tethys. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1I4XyeZ #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.
