Closing time: +NASA's #Spitzer Space Telescope wraps work for the #FrontierFields project. This project combined the power of Spitzer, the #Hubble Telescope and the #Chandra X-ray Observatory — to look as far back in time and space as current technology can allow. 
NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has wrapped up its observations for the Frontier Fields project.

Science on Demand: Watch our public talk about +NASA’s #Cassini mission and its upcoming Grand Finale.
Original air date: September 22, 2016 at 7 p.m. PT (10 p.m. ET, 0200 UTC) After more than 12 years studying Saturn, its rings and moons, NASA's Cassini spacecraft has entered the final year of its epic voyage. The conclusion of the historic scientific odyssey is planned for September 2017, but not before the spacecraft completes a daring two-part endgame. This public talk will present highlights of Cassini’s ambitious inquiry at Saturn and an o...

“Impossible” ice cloud suggests a different process of cloud formation on #Saturn's moon #Titan.

The appearance of a mysterious ice cloud suggests that a different process than previously thought could be forming clouds on Saturn's moon Titan.

Images of #Europa by the #Hubble space #telescope show possible high altitude water vapor plumes erupting from the icy moon's surface. The observation increases the possibility that missions to Europa may be able to sample Europa's ocean without having to drill through miles of ice.

Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have imaged what may be water vapor plumes erupting off the surface of Jupiter's moon Europa.

with low gravity on europa , I would presume surface material from fault fracture collapse is ejected up from stress lines, looks to be pretty common from the images.. I would think anything not gas from surface friction would also produce particle sublimation as it rises .

Tiny but mighty: Spot the small moon #Pan in a gap in #Saturn’s rings. 
Pan may be small as satellites go, but like many of Saturn's ring moons, it has a has a very visible effect on the rings. This images was captured by NASA's Cassini spacecraft on July 2, 2016.

I do believe that Pan is that miniscule dot that separates some of Saturn's rings - it's so dinky yet it looks like it has quite a dramatic effect on Saturn's rings!`

Orbiters find #Mars had lakes roughly 1 billion years more recently than thought.
Lakes and snowmelt-fed streams on Mars formed much later than previously thought possible, according to new findings using data primarily from a NASA orbiter.
