It's #MCM Moon Crush Monday time! Today we celebrate Jupiter's very own Europa. Thanks in large part to measurements made by the visiting spacecraft, Galileo, scientists think it is probable that Europa has a saltwater ocean beneath a relatively thin and geologically active icy shell. Although evidence exists for oceans within several other large icy satellites in the outer solar system, Europa is unique because its ocean is believed to be in direct contact with its rocky interior, where conditions could be similar to those on Earth's biologically rich sea floor. http://solarsystem.nasa.gov/europa/overview.cfm
We are NASA's Planetary Science Division. Our hardworking robots explore the planets and more on the wild frontiers of our solar system.

Hi I'm here as well.  Same as Jared, though.  Looking more for chatting about stuff than specific questions.

Our Educator Resource Center employees had a great set up at the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Day at the capitol.

Today's #mcm, Moon Crush Monday, is Jupiter's 3rd largest moon Io. It's very volcanically active & looks like #pizza. http://1.usa.gov/1DArEcm 
A bit larger than Earth's Moon, Io is the third largest of Jupiter's moons, and the fifth one in distance from the planet.

#TBT This time last year, we had a beautiful blanket of snow covering our buildings.

Today's ‪#‎MCM‬ Moon Crush Monday is our planet's very own moon! Our moon makes Earth a more livable planet by moderating our home planet's wobble on its axis. More than 100 spacecraft have been launched to explore the moon and 12 human beings have walked on it's surface. To learn more, visit https://solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/profile.cfm?Object=Moon

This is @Kristen Basham. The 23-year-old master’s student has ambitions that are out of this world. 🚀 #GoFirst
http://youtu.be/hLU080cdn4g This girl supports @NASAIVV and @NASAGoddard any chance she gets. Keep reaching for the #stars, Kristen!

Today's #MCM Moon Crush Monday is Jupiter's moon Ganymede. Ganymede is the largest satellite in our solar system. This moon has three main layers. A sphere of metallic iron at the center, a spherical shell of rock surrounding the core and a spherical shell of mostly ice surrounding the rock shell and the core. Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope found evidence of a thin oxygen atmosphere on Ganymede in 1996; however it is far too thin to support life as we know it. To find out more, visit https://solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets/profile.cfm?Object=Jup_Ganymede
Ganymede is a moon of Jupiter.

#SMAP may not have launched yesterday, but that didn't stop the kids of Eastwood Elementary School from having some fun!

Yesterday, before going into the chambers where Senator Palumbo would recognize them, the Zero Robotics Competition winners (South Charleston High School students) stopped for a quick photo opp. The Zero Robotics Competition was designed to help students build critical engineering skills, such as problem solving, design through process, operations training and team work. The robots, about the size of a basketball, use compressed air to spin, revolve, hover and navigate through the air to perform autonomous rendezvous and docking maneuvers under the supervision of astronauts. Congratulations to the students!

Story
Introduction
Located in the heart of West Virginia's emerging technology sector, NASA's IV&V Program was established in 1993 as part of an Agency-wide strategy to provide the highest achievable levels of safety and cost-effectiveness for mission critical software. NASA's IV&V Program was founded under the NASA Office of Safety and Mission Assurance (OSMA) as a direct result of recommendations made by the National Research Council (NRC) and the Report of the Presidential Commission on the Space Shuttle Challenger Accident.

MISSION: To provide our customers with assurance that their safety and mission critical software will operate reliably and safely. We will accomplish this by advancing the systems and software engineering disciplines, continually enhancing assurance tools and technologies, broadening our experience base and providing a professional workforce that exemplifies our core values: safety, integrity, teamwork, respect, excellence, balance, and innovation.

The main purpose of NASA's IV&V Program is offering needed software services, including IV&V of critical software under development, systems engineering support, and software assurance research.
