As we look towards the future of space exploration, our NASA Technology Program is constantly innovating, developing and testing new concepts. Just today, seven technology proposals were selected for continued study and could eventually be utilized for future NASA missions. The selected proposals include innovative topics like satellites that map gravity fields and submarines that explore the oceans of icy moons of the outer planets.

Only 8 days until our New Horizons spacecraft flies by Pluto, and the dwarft planet is beginning to come into focus. We have new images of Pluto from 7.8 million miles away. And one images shows the four mysterious dark spots on Pluto that have captured the imagination of the world. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1M8oP3f #PlutoFlyby #NASABeyond

We're hosting a media teleconference at 3 p.m. EDT today to discuss the New Horizons spacecraft returning to normal science operations after a July 4 anomaly. The mission remains on track to conduct the entire close flyby sequence as planned, including the July 14 #PlutoFlyby. Audio of the teleconference will be streamed live at:

The New Horizons spacecraft experienced an anomaly the afternoon of July 4 that led to a loss of communication with Earth. Communication has since been reestablished and the spacecraft is healthy. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1dFcebU #PlutoFlyby

Happy 4th of July … from space! NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly took a moment from his duties onboard the International Space Station, to send greetings and wishes for a safe and happy 4th of July! Kelly is in the fourth month of his year-long mission on the complex.

Happy 4th of July! While fireworks only last a short time here on Earth, a bundle of cosmic sparklers in a nearby cluster of stars will be going off for a very long time. This star cluster populated with many young stars that are less than 2 million years old, a blink of an eye in astronomical terms for stars like the sun expected to burn for billions of years.

Did you know that some of the “biggest and baddest” black holes are actually buried under thick blankets of gas and dust? Their hidden nature makes observing them a challenge, but our NuSTAR Satellite recently caught a glimpse of five of these supermassive black holes. More: http://go.nasa.gov/1M8AYFv #NASABeyond

Your flowers aren’t the only thing blooming this summer. Our Aqua satellite captured this stunning image of phytoplankton blooms in the North Sea. These plantlike organisms tend to be most abundant in late spring and early summer due to high levels of nutrients in the water and increasing sunlight. http://go.nasa.gov/1M80vyp #EarthRightNow

Want to say that you’ve actually witnessed rocket science? Apply to attend the Aug. 13 #NASASocial event in south Mississippi, where participants will get to watch us test a RS-25 engine that will eventually help carry humans deeper into space.

Beginning at 2:30 a.m. EDT/6:30 UTC, NASA Television will provide live coverage of the docking of a Russian Progress spacecraft carrying more than three tons of food, fuel and supplies for the Expedition 44 crew aboard the International Space Station​. Watch the docking live on NASA TV or at http://www.nasa.gov/nasatv
 
The ISS Progress 60 is scheduled to arrive at the Pirs docking compartment of the space station at 3:13 a.m. ET/7:13 UTC. The Expedition 44 crew will monitor key events during Progress 60's automated rendezvous and docking.

The spacecraft will remain docked to the station for four months. Launch of ISS Progress 60 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan occurred at 12:55 a.m. ET/4:55 UTC Friday, July 3 (10:55 a.m. local time in Baikonur).

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.
