All woman commentators during the #AllWomanSpacewalk from @Space_Station Mission Control in Houston, TX!
What's going on inside Mission Control during the #AllWomanSpacewalk? Flight controllers are monitoring various systems built into @Astro_Christina & @Astro_Jessica's spacesuits, like oxygen & water, while relaying tasks to the spacewalkers & controlling systems on the station.
Who's talking to the astronauts from Mission Control during today's #AllWomanSpacewalk? That's astronaut Stephanie Wilson, who has spent 42 days in space over 3 spaceflights! https://www.nasa.gov/astronauts/biographies/stephanie-d-wilson?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=75532910
So proud of my astrosisters @Astro_Christina and @Astro_Jessica! We’ve been training together since our selection in 2013, and now they’re out on a history-making spacewalk! #AllWomanSpacewalk
Even though they were designed for a two-year mission, our Van Allen Probes lasted for about seven years in one of the harshest environments in space. As we prepare to bid farewell to the mission, join our experts on @Reddit to ask questions: https://www.reddit.com/r/space/comments/dj9iur/were_sending_off_a_nasa_mission_thats_spent_seven/
LIVE NOW : Hear experts talk about the @ISS_Research and tech demonstrations that will fly on Nov. 2 to the @Space_Station aboard the Cygnus spacecraft: https://www.nasa.gov/live
Astronaut Kate Rubins, the 1st person to sequence DNA in space, will be answering questions during today’s @Tumblr Answer Time. Kate has spent her career studying dangerous pathogens on Earth & advancing science on the @Space_Station! Tune in at 1pm ET : https://nasa.tumblr.com/tagged/answertime?linkId=75478596
“Never be limited by other people’s limited imaginations.”
Happy birthday, Mae Jemison! Dr. Jemison was the first African American woman to travel to space when she served as a mission specialist aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour. Celebrate:
To chase wildfire smoke, #NASAExplorers stayed up all day…and night, collecting samples with planes and vans, to better understand how smoke affects communities near and far.

This week's episode of @NASAJPL's podcast, On a Mission, goes where geology and astronomy meet: asteroid impact craters. Our Moon is covered in craters, but where are the craters on Earth — and what can we learn from them?
We're working with @NatlParkService on a project using @NASAEarth data to better understand how sound & outdoor light affect animal species. A goal is to help protect the habitats of wildlife and to preserve the park experience for human visitors.
