Earth Day is coming up this month! On April 22, NASA is asking you to share pictures and video of your favorite places on Earth using social media – and tag them ‪#‎NoPlaceLikeHome‬. In the next two weeks and on Earth Day, NASA will share views of Earth – from satellites, from research aircraft, and even from scientists themselves at work in the field.

Flashback 25 years ago, on April 8, 1990, a technician carefully monitors progress as Discovery's payload bay doors close around the Hubble Space Telescope. The payload bay was closed for flight at 6:24 a.m. Sunday, April 8, 1990. The STS-31 launch was originally scheduled for 8:47 a.m. Tuesday, April 10, 1990. The April 10th launch was scrubbed at T-4 minutes due to a faulty valve in auxiliary power unit number one. The mission launched successfully April 24, 1990 at 8:33 a.m.
