Discovery Alert!

A new exoplanet has a sky that one-ups Star Wars' Tatooine – three stars instead of two.

LTT 1445 A b swelters under three red suns. It's a hot, rocky world only 22 light-years⤳ away.

Welcome to the family, LTT 1445 A b!

It feels like just yesterday, but the most recent total solar eclipse to sweep North America took place 2 years ago today. The Expedition 52 crew was lucky enough to see the eclipse three times from inside the @Space_Station, where @AstroKomrade took this photo.

This morning, two astronauts venture outside the @Space_Station for a six-and-a-half-hour spacewalk. The duo will assist in the installation of International Docking Adapter-3 on the space-facing side of the station.
Coverage begins at 6:30am ET. Details: nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-tv 

Before calling it a night, set an alarm to watch tomorrow’s spacewalk! Starting at 6:30am ET, you can tune in to NASA TV to see @NASA_Astronauts install a port that will allow @BoeingSpace and @spacex spacecraft to dock to the @Space_Station. More: blogs.nasa.gov/spacestation/20

Tomorrow my crewmate @AstroDrewMorgan will be going out on his first spacewalk! The main task at hand? He and @AstroHague will install the IDA-3 in order to provide additional docking ports to station for future arrivals of @Commercial_Crew. Watch live: nasa.gov/live .

Ready, set, launch! Tomorrow, an uncrewed Soyuz spacecraft will lift off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to test a new booster rocket that will be used to transport crews to the @Space_Station. Here’s how you can tune in: nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-te 

Explore with us! We've worked to send @Snoopy on an educational mission to space. We're sending on missions to visit the @Space_Station, fly to the Moon & beyond in our @NASA_Orion capsule or take off with our @NASA_SLS rocket + more: nasa.gov/feature/peanuts-toys- 

We're going back to the Moon — to stay! During today's meeting, Administrator @JimBridenstine & @VP Pence discussed our plans to return the lunar surface during our missions.

The @Space_Station relies on quick & effective communications to relay critical mission data to control centers & scientists on Earth. Now flowing at 600Mbps, this increased data rate doubles the amount that can be transmitted & received at a time. More: nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2019/ 

For the first time, data from our @NASASpitzer Space Telescope shows the surface conditions of a planet orbiting another star. The hot, rocky planet is 1.3 times the size of Earth, but has no atmosphere. Discover more: nasa.gov/feature/jpl/nasa-gets
