Our Cassini spacecraft watched as Saturn’s moon Dione crossed the face of the giant planet. Transits like this play an important role in astronomy and can be used to study the orbits of planets and their atmospheres. Learn more: http://go.nasa.gov/1KzopVJ #NASABeyond

Keep digging!
 
Turns out Early Mars is kind of Early Earth-ish.
Early Mars may have been a bit more like early Earth.

That's one small bite for a man, one giant leaf for mankind: Astronauts sampled the fruits of their labor after harvesting a crop of "Outredgeous" red romaine lettuce from the Veggie plant growth system on the International Space Station. Learn how space farming yields a crop of benefits for us on Earth and helps on our #JourneyToMars: http://go.nasa.gov/1Ek8svQ

Our Kepler mission has confirmed the first near-Earth-size planet in the “habitable zone” around a sun-like star. The newly discovered Kepler-452b is the smallest planet to date discovered orbiting in the habitable zone -- the area around a star where liquid water could pool on the surface of an orbiting planet -- of a G2-type star, like our sun.

The two brightest spots on dwarf planet Ceres, which have fascinated scientists for months, are back in view in the newest images from our Dawn spacecraft. Dawn took these images on April 14 and 15 from a vantage point 14,000 miles (22,000 kilometers) above Ceres’ north pole. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1G0x1hk
