Once astronauts travel deeper into space than ever before in the Orion spacecraft, we’ll need to make sure they get home safe! Watch to see how we test exit procedures after splashdown: http://go.nasa.gov/2gO96lc

Spotted! Mars’ tiny moon Phobos is seen during its orbital trek by the Hubble Space Telescope. Over the course of 22 minutes, Hubble captured 13 separate exposures, resulting in this time-lapse video. Watch: http://go.nasa.gov/2gNUHW7

Sleep deprivation with a purpose. This four-person crew went through many of the motions of a real deep space mission without ever actually leaving the Johnson Space Center. This study allowed researchers to test the use of habitat lighting as a method of combating crew fatigue during a 45-day simulated deep space mission.

Diagnosing the complex causes of air pollution over the Korean peninsula was no easy task, and we partnered with the South Korean government in 2016 to do so and lay the groundwork for next-generation pollution monitoring from space. Get the details: http://go.nasa.gov/2vkHesc

Our sun is dynamic and ever-changing. On Friday, a solar flare and a coronal mass ejection erupted from the same, large active region. The coils arcing over this active region are particles spiraling along magnetic field lines. Solar flares are explosions on the sun that send energy, light and high speed particles into space. Such flares are often associated with solar magnetic storms known as coronal mass ejections. Learn more: http://go.nasa.gov/2uJy3Ej

Stationed in a remote part of Argentina, we were in precisely the right place at the right time to catch a fleeting shadow of 2014 MU69 — an event that’s known as an occultation. This Kuiper Belt Object is the next target for our New Horizons mission. Get the details: http://go.nasa.gov/2uJ0Ysc
