Dang it.
 
We are disappointed in the loss of the latest SpaceX cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station. However, the astronauts are safe aboard the station and have sufficient supplies for the next several months... This is a reminder that spaceflight is an incredible challenge, but we learn from each success and each setback." Full statement: http://go.nasa.gov/1fYPx44

Yeah, let's do.
NASA's New Horizons spacecraft is at Pluto's doorstep. Philip Metzger from the New Horizons mission told DW that they expect to find many surprises on Pluto - which he doesn't consider to be a dwarf planet.

Earth is experiencing an ongoing geomagnetic storm that started on June 22 due to the arrival of an Earth-directed coronal mass ejection, or CME, from a minor solar flare on June 20. As a result, aurora were sighted in several mid-latitude locations, including Virginia, in the United States and in the United Kingdom. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1LBSkKx

Yay.
 
The day will officially be a bit longer than usual on Tuesday. An extra second, or “leap” second, will be added. Learn why: http://go.nasa.gov/1Cz8fEa

Well, crap.
We are currently witnessing the start of a mass extinction event the likes of which have not been seen on Earth for at least 65 million years. This is the alarming finding of a new study published in the journal Science Advances.

In the late spring and summer, unusual clouds form high in the atmosphere above the polar regions of the world. As the lower atmosphere warms, the upper atmosphere gets cooler, and ice crystals form on meteor dust and other particles high in the sky. The result is noctilucent or “night-shining” clouds (NLCs)—electric blue wisps that grow on the edge of space. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1dOym43

Yay! Wake up, li'l Philae.
 
Breaking news! #wakeupPhilae  
Tweet Rosetta's lander Philae is out of hibernation! The signals were received at ESA's European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt at 22:28 CEST on 13 June. More than 300 data packets have been analysed by the teams at the Lander Control Center at the German Aerospace Center (DLR). "Philae is doing very well: It has an operating temperature of -35ºC and has 24 Watts available," explains DLR Philae Project Manager Dr. Stephan Ulamec. "The lande...

Maybe they should have used a thermo coupler to extract electricity from the cold?

Can you guess what's creating those unusual bright spots on Ceres? On March 6, our Dawn spacecraft began orbiting Ceres, the largest body in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Even before the spacecraft arrived at the dwarf planet, images revealed mysterious bright spots that captivated scientists and observers alike. Until Dawn gets a closer look over the next few months, it's anyone's guess what those spots could be. So, go ahead and cast your vote: http://go.nasa.gov/1ebj368
