In a remote area of northwest Greenland, an international team of scientists made a stunning discovery, buried beneath more than a half-mile of ice. It’s a meteor impact crater that’s roughly 1,000 feet deep and bigger than Paris.

California skies are shrouded in smoke as the #CampFire continues to rage. The fire has been fueled by dry conditions & Santa Ana winds. Our @NASAEarth satellite captured this image on Nov. 14—actively burning fires are shown as red points. https://www.nasa.gov/image-feature/goddard/2018/california-shrouded-in-smoke-from-the-ongoing-camp-fire?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=59702453
LIVE NOW: In this episode of NASA in Silicon Valley Live, we talk about the science of heat shields and how our spacecraft survive the extreme temperatures experienced during atmospheric entry.
3, 2, 1, FIRE!
LIVE NOW: Join us as we fire up one of the engines that will power our @NASA_SLS rocket into space. Watch today's test of an RS-25 engine at @NASAStennis in Mississippi: http://www.nasa.gov/live?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=59701140
Trust us, this is worth the wait! Due to unfavorable weather conditions, the launch of @northropgrumman’s #Antares rocket with #Cygnus cargo spacecraft is targeted for 4:01am ET on Saturday, Nov. 17 from @NASA_Wallops. Get the latest updates: https://blogs.nasa.gov/northropgrumman/?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=59695180
Rain, rain go away, we'll have to launch the rocket another day The @northropgrumman CRS-10 mission has been rescheduled for Saturday, Nov. 17 at 4:01 a.m. due to inclement weather.
Soon, we'll fire up one of the four RS-25 engines that will power our @NASA_SLS rocket to places like the Moon & Mars. Fun Fact: Hot gases exit the nozzle at 13X the speed of sound!
