Earth has a new lightning capital, according to a recent study. Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela earned the top spot receiving an average rate of about 233 flashes per square kilometer per year. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/24k3wc0

+Michael Gayer We're not talking about creation here -- matter may (or, most probably, may not) be being created today, but that stars are forming in existing hydrogen clouds is well established.

Today, four people will go through all the motions of a real deep space mission without ever actually leaving Earth. Our Human Exploration Research Analog at Johnson Space Center in Houston simulates physical and mental affects on the body similar to those experienced in space. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1OaYt0Z

Valeri Polyakov and Scott Kelly would be excellent choices for an on-paper control group, it seems, eh +Jesse Casey​? Of course, I don't think much would be left of the astronauts in a deep-space mission upon their return judging by the conditions of the aforementioned after approximately a year-plus.

A new elevation map created from New Horizons spacecraft data shows Pluto’s “sunken heart”. The vast expanse of the icy surface is on average 2 miles lower than the surrounding terrain. Take a look: http://go.nasa.gov/1VGlOPU

A starshade, a giant structure that blocks the glare of stars, could help future space telescopes take pictures of planets. This technology would enable astronomers to take pictures of Earth-like worlds, and then use other instruments to search the planet’s atmospheres for chemical clues about whether life might exist there.

A map that keeps getting better! This global map of Pluto uses images from the New Horizons spacecraft's #PlutoFlyby in July 2015. The latest images woven into the map were sent back to Earth as recently as April 25, and the team will continue to add photos as the spacecraft transmits the rest of its stored Pluto encounter data.

Like a drop of dew upon a leaf, the water-world Enceladus appears to sit atop Saturn’s rings. This view looks toward the unilluminated side of the rings from a distance of approximately 930,000 miles. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1Oc8RWa

Several people (including me) have challenged you repeated to go look with your own eyes, yet you never do.

Could that be because you know that what you're spewing is only fit for fertilizing this round Earth of ours?

Seriously, dude.  It's time to put up or shut up.

Our latest #EarthExpedition is using a flying laboratory to study air pollution in South Korea. Take a tour of the aircraft tonight at 10 p.m. EDT during a Facebook Live event on our NASA Earth page: https://www.facebook.com/nasaearth/

Patterns known as “lunar swirls,” appear almost painted on the surface of the moon. A powerful combination of observations and computer simulations is giving us new clues of their origins. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1W0CTnt

The golden standard of mirrors! Our James Webb Space Telescope’s mirrors are covered in a microscopically thin layer of gold, which optimizes them for reflecting infrared light. This very fine film of vaporized gold coats each of the 18 mirror segments. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1W0yukn

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.
