NASA's Kepler space telescope has picked up some 'light' images from the exoplanet filled TRAPPIST-1 System... not as glamorous as others have portrayed, but still pretty cool!

A traffic jam on Mars? Perhaps....with this global line-up of rovers and orbiters potentially launching in mid-2020. Spacecrafts include NASA's Mars 2020 rover, the ExoMars 2020 rover from the European Space Agency, a Chinese rover/orbiter, and the United Arab Emirates' Hope spacecraft. Did I miss any?

Found this letter in our research library yesterday. It's from NASA's flight director Christopher C. Kraft Jr. to the employees of NASA in 1974. My favorite part is... "This was only a beginning of a great new era of man's exploration of space".
