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.

Just over 35 million light-years away is a glowing spiral galaxy of gas and swirls of dust. Our Hubble Space Telescope peered into the heart of this galactic maelstrom. Learn more: http://go.nasa.gov/1JUoaj5 #NASABeyond

I love the Hubble images.  Looking at M96 through my telescope, even though it's made for 'galaxy hunting', is just not anywhere near the same!

+Danica Macanga I think for a trip to the station is $30 million.  If you are going, buy me a ticket too! Thanks

Crew members Sergey Volkov of Roscosmos, Andreas Mogensen of ESA (European Space Agency) and Aidyn Aimbetov of the Kazakh Space Agency joined their Expedition 44 crewmates when the hatches between the Soyuz TMA-18M spacecraft and the International Space Station officially opened at 6:15 a.m. EDT. Expedition 44 Commander Gennady Padalka of Roscosmos, as well as Flight Engineers Scott Kelly and Kjell Lindgren of NASA, Flight Engineers Oleg Kononenko and Mikhail Kornienko of Roscosmos, and Kimiya Yui of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) welcomed the new crew members aboard their orbital home, marking the first time since 2013 that nine people have been aboard the orbiting laboratory.

The crew will support several hundred experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science -- research that impacts life on Earth.

The trip enables Roscosmos to rotate a crew member and a Soyuz spacecraft. Volkov will remain aboard the station for the next six months, returning in March 2016 with one-year mission crew members Kelly and Kornienko in the Soyuz TMA-18M. Padalka, who launched in March with Kelly and Kornienko in the Soyuz TMA-16M, will return to Earth in that spacecraft on Sept. 11 with Mogensen and Aimbetov, leaving Kelly in command of Expedition 45. Lindgren, Kononenko and Yui will remain aboard the station until late December. Each Soyuz remains in orbit for about six months.

Traveling this Labor Day weekend? Check out NASA astronaut Scott Kelly and his Russian crewmates window view when they took a 'road trip' from the International Space Station. They left their orbital home for a 20-minute get away to relocate their spacecraft from one module to another. https://youtu.be/ETHCQ1QNhlE #YearInSpace

Hey, what works works. Space suits came from the deep ocean suits of the 1800s and still work.

I am so happy we have SpaceX!  Has Blue Origins even gotten a launch to work yet?  I wish them all good luck, don't get me wrong.  If they are American companies; I want them to be successful.  However, I haven't heard of Blue Origins launching yet, so I don't count them right now.

Just a question +Richard Byrd​, when we will have James Webb out there taking infrared images, will you also scream fake when the images are not shown in the color they were taken? Because it will seem so ugly looking at the originals, you realize that!
