Dust can be a nuisance — on Earth and the Moon. When astronauts go to explore the Moon’s South Pole, they'll need a way to help keep pesky lunar dust out of hard to reach places. A @NASAKennedy team may have a @NASA_technology solution: 

Starting the job on April 23, 2018, it’s been one year since @JimBridenstine was sworn in as our 13th administrator. From @Commercial_Crew flight assignments to mission moments across the solar system, here is a look at what happened in the last year:

I was sworn in one year ago today & what a year it’s been! We landed @NASAInSight on Mars, flew by the most distant object ever visited by a spacecraft and accepted the challenge to land humans on the Moon by 2024. Can’t wait to see what we will accomplish in year two!

How do astronauts living and working aboard the @Space_Station like to spend their free time? Gazing back at our majestic planet! Orbiting about 250 miles over the Earth, our astronauts have the best view of our home planet. Happy

When viewed across the solar system, Earth is just a speck in the cosmos. Images taken of Earth from missions such as @OSIRISRex & @CassiniSaturn remind us of how precious our home planet is. View more images of Earth from afar & celebrate : 

Currents swirl like watercolors. Sediment layers like oil paint. Landforms sculpt from erosion like clay. Our @NASAEarth satellites capture awe-inspiring images of Earth on a daily basis to help us learn about our home planet. Get inspired for :

The next @spacex cargo resupply mission to the @Space_Station will carry to study atmospheric carbon's relationship to climate, how spaceflight affects musculoskeletal disease biology and more. Listen to scientists share what we hope to learn:
