We’re all in this together! @Astro_Jessica and @AstroDrewMorgan sent a special message from their home on the space station for kids everywhere during difficult times. https://twitter.com/nickelodeon/status/1246512953655951367
From manufacturing to assembly to the launch of #Artemis I, the @NASA_SLS move team is there to safely transport the 212-foot-tall core stage of the world’s largest rocket: https://www.nasa.gov/exploration/systems/sls/ground-marine-teams-integral-to-moving-sls-rocket-to-pad.html?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=85778335
Up for some virtual cloud watching?
What do you see in Jupiter’s hazy atmosphere?
Our @NASAJuno mission captured this look at Jupiter’s tumultuous northern regions on Feb. 17, 2020. Image processed by citizen scientist Gerald Eichstädt: https://www.nasa.gov/image-feature/jpl/high-altitude-hazes-on-jupiter?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=85830538

NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy lifts off April 9, 2020 for his third spaceflight, but before he heads to the International @Space_Station, we learn more about this captain and commander on this week’s episode of “Houston, We Have a Podcast.” https://www.nasa.gov/johnson/HWHAP/captain-and-commander
It must be pretty awesome to go to space, but seeing a view like this of the Earth and Moon at the same time? Out of this world
Thanks @NASA_Astronauts on the @Space_Station for sharing your photos.

A universe of possibilities with #NASAatHome activities
SpaceX selected to deliver supplies to our lunar Gateway
Shannon Walker of @NASA_Astronauts added to an upcoming #CrewDragon flight to the @Space_Station
When I land on Mars, it will be thanks to the perseverance of my team, which is doing its best to deliver me to the launch pad in July. I have my parachute and final wheels. After a safe touchdown, I’ll be ready to roll. https://go.nasa.gov/347ttic
If you look out your window this evening, you might be rewarded with a brilliant view of Venus, which will pass near a star cluster known as the Pleiades. Don’t miss your chance — Venus won’t make another appearance this close to the Pleiades until 2028: https://blogs.nasa.gov/Watch_the_Skies/2020/04/03/rare-sights-for-spring/?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=85778172
Sometimes astrophysics can seem like a whole new language! Join us daily as we go through the alphabet and break down some of the terms that our scientists use everyday to explore and describe our universe. Catch up here: “ABCs of Astrophysics” https://twitter.com/i/moments/1246128042042327041
How do you bring a 2,260 lb rover on a road trip?
Tune in now to our #NASAatHome Spaceport Series to find out! @NASAJPL engineers will share what it's like to transport our Mars rover @NASAPersevere across the country and answer your questions LIVE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8dWN_A5JJk&feature=youtu.be
This week on #SpaceToGround, the Bartolomeo science platform which arrived aboard @spacex's Dragon was installed on @Space_Station. Astronauts packed up Dragon with @ISS_Research for return to Earth, while the next crew prepared for an April 9 launch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Sf3Z60QPGk&feature=youtu.be
As a child, @NASAJPL's Bob Balaram was inspired by the Apollo Moon landings to take an interest in space exploration. Today, he's the chief engineer of a Mars helicopter launching this summer with @NASAPersevere. How he made a "crazy idea" into reality: https://www.nasa.gov/feature/jpl/the-man-who-wanted-to-fly-on-mars?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=85708359
Something HUGE is unfolding for @NASAWebb.
In a recent test, the space telescope fully deployed its iconic primary mirror into the same configuration it will have in space. Why this test is key to a successful mission: https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2020/nasa-s-james-webb-space-telescope-full-mirror-deployment-a-success?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=85708667
“When you look out into the depths of space you realize just the vast ocean of darkness, and we’re on this little island. And we’re on it together.”
@AstroHague shares how his time living and working in space changed his perception of life back on Earth: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DR2_VnyinM&feature=youtu.be
What do slime mold and the universe have in common?
A lot, actually. Slime mold builds complex networks in search of food, not unlike how gravity builds a cobweb structure of galaxies. https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2020/slime-mold-simulations-used-to-map-dark-matter-holding-universe-together?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=84052073
#DidYouKnow there's a cosmic ray detector on the @Space_Station, studying fundamental particles from sources up to billions of light years away? How the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer searches for evidence of dark matter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJDiZ_zJ4rA&feature=youtu.be
