Look at our beautiful Atlantis in flight! She served us well in space and still does. Thanks +Ron Garan for sharing.
 
This is one of my favorite Space Shuttle pictures. I took it over Long Island (The other Long Island) as the last Space Shuttle to fly (Atlantis) approached the International Space Station

With commander Chris Ferguson, pilot Doug Hurley and mission specialists Sandy Magnus and Rex Walheim aboard STS-135 Atlantis soared toward space on July 8, 2011, closing out a 30-year Space Shuttle Program. Just as the Apollo program learnings led to the success of the shuttle program, knowledge gained from 135 shuttle flights are now guiding both commercial companies and NASA in developing future manned spacecraft.

ESA's Rosetta mission is an exciting one we are following. Follow +European Space Agency, ESA to keep up to date on Rosetta's progress to rendezvous with Comet 67P/C-G in early August.
 
Comet 67P/C-G is slowly taking shape, one pixel at a time! Here's the latest view from Rosetta as she zeros in on her target.

MAVEN Status Update: Thursday July 10, 2014

At 8 pm EDT today, #MAVEN will be at a distance of 138,738,076 km (86,207,844 miles) from Earth with an Earth-centered velocity of 20.6 km/s (12.8 mi/s or 46,084 mph) and a Sun-centered velocity of 22.5 km/s (14.0 mi/s or 50,267 mph).

Having traveled a total of 570,432,546 km (354,449,671 mi) in its heliocentric transfer orbit, the MAVEN spacecraft has now covered ~80% of its journey from Earth to Mars. The spacecraft is currently at a distance of 19,070,155 km (11,849,645 mi) from Mars, and 214,055,852 km (133,008,140 mi or 1.431 A.U.) from the Sun.

Our next trajectory correction maneuver (TCM-3) is scheduled for Wednesday, July 23rd, and the spacecraft remains on schedule for #Mars orbit insertion on September 21, 2014 at 10 p.m. EDT, 73 days from today.

What does space smell like? Science experiments are critical components to the mission of the #ISS. When they involve students' science projects it is an inspiring way to connect #STEM with younger learners. Sometimes they also can make astronauts hungry! http://youtu.be/op4IPI6Uly8

+Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) does a lot for #STEM education and space science!
 
Students are sending research to the International Space Station! CASIS is proud to support the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program as we expand the walls of the classroom and facilitate student research on the #ISS ! Learn more about this exciting program and the current suite of student research heading to station this month: http://1.usa.gov/1r3coMq
Astronauts on future missions may nibble on lettuce or grow their own antibiotics depending on research student scientists plan to conduct.

Planetary scientist and four-time shuttle astronaut, Dr. Tom Jones visits are always educational and entertaining for our guests and staff. Jones was onsite July 2, to attend the grand opening of our new exhibit "Great Balls of Fire" featuring interactive activities about comets, #asteroids and meteors.

This is a must see if you are visiting Florida! The entrance fee is a bit steep but, does include a day of activities! The bus tour is very interesting and it was exciting to see the launch pads. The museums are full of information and activities for the kids. Make sure to give yourself plenty of time. My family was busy from opening to closing and we still didnt see everything!

Great way to spend a day. Get some history and see the genuine article. Make sure to take the bus tour over to the launch facility and to the Apollo/Saturn V exhibit.

I've always wanted to go since I was 12 years old yet never occurred to me to go on a trip. Being that theres also Disney and Universal/Islands of Adventure about a hour away, naturally one tends to forget that right by cape canaveral history has been made countless times, things you read in history books. I finally went on my first trip to KSC now 26 yrs old. I regret not having begged my parents to take me as a kid, and for not having planned my trip any sooner. I saw everything except for the IMax films in just one day. I have to go back to see the astronaut hall of fame and a film or 2. Its a must go. People take your kids to see this place, pictures do not even compare to the size of everything you'll see.

If you have ever looked up at the stars you need to come to this place. I am 30 years old but was fortunate enough to go as a chaperon on my daughters field trip.

Really impressive attraction. My son and I went here to watch a launch. Unfortunately, they had oversold the launch so it was incredibly crowded. I would not view a launch there again. With that said, the rest of the facility is amazing! The new Atlantis exhibit is very impressive. We also did the mega tour for about 3 hours and was not disappointed!
