Take a break and get to know the stars! 
This is NGC 281. It is a relatively nearby cloud of gas and dust that lies high above the plane of the Milky Way galaxy. Its location makes NGC 281 a good target for astronomers who want to study "high-mass" stars.

Information about the Chandra X-ray Observatory, which was launched on July 23, 1999, its mission and goals, and the people who built it.

Happy #EarthDay  

This composite image of southern Africa and the surrounding oceans was captured by six orbits of the NASA/NOAA Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership spacecraft on April 9, 2015, by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument. Tropical Cyclone Joalane can be seen over the Indian Ocean.

You can get a really high resolution version of this image here:

Neil deGrasse Tyson @neiltyson
Okay to not know. But when you don't know, yet think you know, and wield power in that ignorance, it's a recipe for disaster.

The world’s first space telescope celebrates a quarter century this week. NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope launched into orbit aboard the space shuttle Discovery 25 years ago Friday, on April 24, 1990.
