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: 

Sound on! When listening for marsquakes, our @NASAInSight spacecraft recorded audio with three distinct sounds:
Noise from the Martian wind
Vibrations on the Red Planet
Its robotic arm moving to take pictures

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: 

RT @JimBridenstine
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!

Our magnificent planet is ready for its close-up on . We’re calling on YOU! Help us celebrate by uploading a photo of your favorite natural features using . Learn how your pictures could be featured in future projects: 

As we celebrate , enjoy these views of our home that can only be seen from the distance of deep space. In conjunction with our anniversary, we’re sharing thoughts from our @NASA_Astronauts who’ve beheld the beauty of Earth from afar:

NASA tech has been improving lives for 60 years. We recently launched a website called Space for U.S. that highlights how @NASAEarth data is helping to make informed decisions about public health, disaster response, the environment & more. Check it out: 

"We came all this way to explore the Moon, and the most important thing is that we discovered the Earth." - Bill Anders, Apollo 8

Anders' iconic Earthrise photo taken in 1968 helped spark the first . Can you see why?

Crashing waves. Falling snow. Blooming flowers. Our @NASAEarth satellites capture Earth to increase our knowledge of our home — now it’s your turn! On , post a photo of your favorite natural features on social media w/ the hashtag :

We know you love Earth, but how much do you know about it? When the solar system settled into its current layout about 4.5 billion years ago, gravity pulled in swirling gas & dust to form Earth. Learn more about our home planet for :

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 :
