For decades, @nasa has used data from Earth-observing satellites to better understand our planet. Satellite imagery in our new book, Earth, shows the story of a 4.5-billion-year-old planet where there is always something new to see.

Congratulations to @TeamSpaceIL and @ILSpaceAgency on launching the first commercial lunar lander! This is a historic step for all nations and commercial space as we extend our collaborations beyond low-Earth orbit and on to the Moon. nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-ad 

After much anticipation, Israel’s first Moon lander is ready to launch! We’ve provided @TeamSpaceIL w/ images of the Moon’s surface, use of our Deep Space Network & a small laser retroreflector. Learn more: nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2019/

As early as the end of this year, we could be sending experiments to fly on commercial landers to the surface of the Moon. From an instrument that'll measure the radiation environment to one that'll gather info about landing on the surface, get the details nasa.gov/press-release/nasa-se

Congratulations to @JAXA_en on a successful touchdown and retrieval! @nasa is looking forward to comparing data and sharing samples with Japan from our own asteroid sample return mission, @OSIRISREx, when it returns from asteroid Bennu in 2023. theverge.com/2019/2/21/1823478

Our @Commercial_Crew industry partners @Boeing and @spacex are on the verge of making history. First up: the March 2 liftoff of @spacex's on a demo flight. What's next: blogs.nasa.gov/commercialcrew/

Here’s the next episode of Watch this Space! In this episode, I highlight @nasa’s plans to partner with the best of American industry to develop human lunar landers and the incredible accomplishments of our Opportunity rover on Mars. Full episode: youtube.com/watch?v=JN0OWlfGWh 

As we celebrate , we aim to encourage the future female workforce to consider a career path in engineering and be part of the next generation of explorers. Follow our Instagram story today to hear more instagram.com/nasa

I’ll be on Fox Business with @Varneyco at 11:10am ET to discuss @TeamSpaceIL’s historic launch tonight with the first private mission to the Moon. Be sure and tune in!

Good morning to our beautiful world, and to all the beautiful people who call it home!

Just because you’re small, doesn’t mean you don’t shine bright The supermassive black holes at the centers of these merging galaxies should be outshining all of their stars, but they are being outdone by a single neutron star. Read more & shine bright: nasa.gov/feature/jpl/in-collid

.@nasa is targeting June 12 as the launch date for Orion’s Ascent Abort-2 test, a critical milestone for human missions to the Moon! The test will show Orion’s Launch Abort System can carry a crew to safety in case of an emergency during launch.

If you were asked to name the Moon, what would you call it? We chose Hippocamp as the name for a mysterious tiny moon around Neptune discovered by our @NASAHubble Space Telescope. Discover more about “the moon that shouldn’t be there”: nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2019/

Our flying @SOFIAtelescope has a new toy, and the results are extraordinary. With a new instrument on board, the airborne observatory is now able to study celestial magnetic fields with ground-breaking precision. Discover the latest results: nasa.gov/feature/sofia-uncover 

How's the weather? Did you have a today?

Astronauts on board the @Space_Station captured this view of the Great Lakes region in mid-February, with clouds and frozen terrain as far as the eye could see: nasa.gov/image-feature/lake-su 

Could the Moon be a potential source of water production? Solar wind streams protons to the Moon, which interacts w/ electrons to make hydrogen atoms. These atoms latch onto oxygen in the lunar soil — making hydroxl, a component of water. Take a dip: nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2019/

Welcome to a mock spacecraft where crewmembers live for 45 days & emulate a real space mission, w/ 16-hour work days & a flight-like timeline of activities. The 5th Human Exploration Research Analog Campaign has just “lifted off.” Learn more: nasa.gov/feature/hera-mission-
