A @NASAEarth satellite captured images of widespread surface melt in Antarctica's George VI ice shelf. These jewel-toned ponds of meltwater spanned a vast area on the shelf—a huge slab of floating glacier ice on the western side of the Antarctic Peninsula: https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/images/146189/widespread-melt-on-the-george-vi-ice-shelf?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=81135865
We are changing the face of aircraft communications!
With more aircraft taking to the skies, it’s never been more important for safe, reliable laser communication.

“The countdown to this nation’s next great era of space exploration is moving ahead” at @NASAStennis! The @NASA_SLS core stage for #Artemis I is being installed for a Green Run test series, which will culminate in an 8-minute hot fire of the engines: https://www.nasa.gov/feature/nasa-artemis-program-and-stennis-space-center-set-the-stage-for-testing-in-2020?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=81128840
The @NASA_SLS core stage for #Artemis I has been successfully installed in the B-2 Test Stand @NASAStennis! We’re preparing for a Green Run test series that will culminate with an eight-minute, full-duration hot fire of the stage’s 4 RS-25 engines.

Hitchhiking fungi, bacteria and other microbes do not become superbugs aboard the @Space_Station, an @ESA study finds. Rest assured, the microbiome orbiting Earth is stable: https://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/station/research/news/space-station-microbes-no-more-harmful-than-those-on-earth-extremophiles?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=81119865
Burn scars left by wildfires in southeastern Australia range from 46-105 miles long in this Jan. 22 image by the @NOAA/@NASAEarth Suomi NPP satellite. Enhanced colors in the image help distinguish the burn scars from naturally low vegetation or bare soil: https://www.nasa.gov/image-feature/goddard/2020/nasa-satellite-measures-australias-burn-scars-in-miles?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=81074687
