NEWS: @NASA_Marshall will be the lead @nasa center for human lunar landing systems - a critical component of infrastructure to return to the Moon, along with @NASA_SLS, @NASA_Orion and the Gateway. Learn more about this announcement:  nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-ma

Administrator @JimBridenstine announced @NASA_Marshall will lead our Human Landing System Program that will put the first woman and next man on the Moon in five years as a part of our program. Watch: twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1nAKE

It's been a busy week on @Space_Station prepping for our upcoming ! @AstroDrewMorgan & I will assist in the installation of International Docking Adapter-3, which will provide a 2nd docking port to station for the future arrivals of @Commercial_Crew spacecraft.

This rounded object isn't something seen through a microscope. Instead, it's a vast orb of gas in space, cast off by an aging star and seen by the @NASAHubble telescope. The star is visible in the orb's center, shining through the gases it formerly held: nasa.gov/image-feature/goddard

After spending more than 50 years supporting @nasa's human spaceflight programs, the Vehicle Assembly Building is getting its first commercial tenant.

@northropgrumman will assemble and test its new OmegA rocket inside the massive facility : blogs.nasa.gov/kennedy/2019/08 

What’s happening 250 miles above our home planet? @NASA_Astronauts prepare for a spacewalk, a test of a new rocket part for future launches to the @Space_Station and crew members worked on a robotic refueling experiment. Watch for more: youtu.be/_LPDZ6gDzRw?linkId=72 

Set a reminder to watch our live events on NASA TV today!

2pm ET — Experts provide a preview of work that will be done during an upcoming spacewalk
3:10pm ET — @JimBridenstine makes an announcement about our plans to return to the Moon

From Apollo to , NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility — “America’s Rocket Factory” — has been manufacturing rockets for missions to the Moon. So proud of the incredible @nasa team here in Louisiana!

Images from our @NASAFermi space telescope are a reminder that astronauts on the Moon will need to withstand gamma radiation on the lunar surface. See how these observations are helping us prepare for a sustainable lunar presence w/ our missions: nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2019/ 

RT @NASA_Johnson
I think we’re going to need a taller spacesuit! Thanks for visiting, @blakegriffin23. From astronaut training to discussing our plans to go forward to the Moon, we’re glad we could share our space with you!

: There have been more than 200 spacewalks to assemble, maintain & make upgrades to the @Space_Station. Tune in starting at 2pm ET tomorrow for a preview of the tasks that will be completed during a six-and-a-half-hour spacewalk. Details: nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-tv 

We are going! And there's an opportunity for to design devices that @NASA_Astronauts may use on future missions. Learn more about the 2020 challenge → microgravityuniversity.jsc.nas

The world’s largest rocket welding tool is right here in New Orleans. Crews at are already using the Vertical Assembly Facility to produce the liquid hydrogen tank for 2.

By focusing on SmallSats and capitalizing on the cost savings of sharing a launch, we can test and advance cutting-edge technologies at a reasonable price. Learn more about this @NASASun science news: nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-se twitter.com/NASASun/status/116

Small satellites to study space weather: We've selected two proposals to demo cutting-edge technologies to improve observations in deep space. One will share a ride on the launch of a @NASASun mission studying the boundary of the heliosphere. Details: nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-se 

Thanks to a joint effort with @NOAA, our scientists are studying the composition & chemistry of atmospheric smoke to better understand its impact on air quality and climate. Find out what we’ve learned from flying through ‘fire clouds’ such as these: earthobservatory.nasa.gov/imag

He’s got game even when it comes to getting in and out of our spacecraft trainer at @NASA_Johnson. At 6 feet 10 inches, @BlakeGriffin23 has boldly gone where few basketball players have gone before.
