First water, now oxygen.

Chemicals found in Martian rocks by NASA's Curiosity Mars rover suggest the Red Planet once had more oxygen in its atmosphere than it does now.

Up for a Sunday longread? Check out the interactive press kit for NASA's Juno mission to Jupiter and its July 4th arrival in orbit.
Introduction. NASA's Juno spacecraft will arrive at Jupiter in 2016 to study our solar system's largest planet. From a unique polar orbit, Juno will repeatedly dive between the planet and its intense belts of charged particle radiation, coming only about 3000 miles (5000 kilometers) from the ...

+Ulrich Meintjes If anything or anyone can find it I would think it would be the rover. That thing is equipped with the coolest accessories! I'd love to have one here to find me some platinum and rhodium!

It's a bit larger than Neptune and whips around its star every five days.
Astronomers have discovered the youngest fully formed exoplanet ever detected.

+Justin Torres There's not an actual pic. Exoplanets are found by two main means: periodical dimming of the brightness of the star they orbit, or a "bobbing" in the stars movement. Both imply large amounts of observation, and are often used side by side to gather extra data (which leads to the extra details mentioned). Most of the news of today astronomy come from teams watching a handful of objects for several years to gather data, which the is corroborated by other teams elsewhere before the findings are published. Science takes time.

Deep dive: +NASA’s #Juno mission will peer deep beneath #Jupiter’s clouds and map its magnetic field.
NASA's Juno spacecraft, arriving at Jupiter on July 4, will begin to unravel some of the planet's greatest mysteries, including the origin of its massive magnetosphere.

Brightest area on #Ceres suggests past hydrothermal activity on the dwarf planet.
The brightest area on Ceres, located in the mysterious Occator Crater, has the highest concentration of carbonate minerals ever seen outside Earth, according to a new study from scientists on NASA's Dawn mission.

See the rings and moon Enceladus? Look again. Saturn's night side is visible, too, illuminated by light reflecting off the rings.

Photo by NASA's Cassini mission.
At first glance, the most obvious features in this image from NASA's Cassini spacecraft are Saturn's rings and the icy moon Enceladus. Upon closer inspection, Saturn's night side is also visible (near top center), faintly illuminated by sunlight reflected off the rings.

Established NASA technology aids new cancer research.
Getting spacecraft ready for launch may have more to do with medical research than you think.

One thing that I really love about following NASA is how we humans are able to overcome the challenges that face us as we strive to learn more about the wonders of Space. The beauty of being on the internet is that I can feel connected to this amazing adventure and I can be involved - and share - this marvellous achievement...well done, fellow humans.

As Northern hemisphere summer approaches, shadows of #Saturn's rings creep ever southward across the planet.

Time for a freemasonic Luciferian sacrifice I suppose, Jack Parsons would if he was still alive. NASA ,Goddard Space Center and JPL are Freemasonry, Luciferian, Nazis .
