These experiments will look into a range of scientific disciplines from human health to atmospheric conditions on Earth. This was the first commercial launch from historic Launch Pad 39A since it was used for Shuttle missions. Find out more: http://go.nasa.gov/2mc1UNl

Space is bursting with activity and this field of bright celestial bodies offers a glimpse at entire galaxies. The spiral galaxies have arms curving out from a bright center. The fuzzier, less clearly shaped galaxies might be ellipticals. Some of these galaxies contain millions or even billions of stars, but are so distant that all of their starry residents are contained within just a small pinprick of light that appears to be the same size as a single star!
