Extra, Extra, read all about her! Meet Michelle Gonzalez, Program Manager of Booster Avionics for @NASA_SLS rocket. The avionics system provides 80% of control for the rocket after launch & will send our @NASA_Orion into the stars.

A little bit closer now. @LRO_NASA captured this shot of the Chang’e lander and rover in Von Kármán Crater on January 30th. The left arrow points to the lander and the right arrow points to the even smaller rover, just 2 pixels across. https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2019/chang-e-4-rover-comes-into-view
Earlier today, Northrup Grumman's #Cygnus cargo craft was successfully released from the #ISS. Among the cargo onboard during the November launch was a student-designed investigation seeking to understand Earth’s origin and early history. https://www.issnationallab.org/blog/shedding-light-on-our-early-solar-system/
Where does a spacecraft to go after it departs the @Space_Station?
For @NorthropGrumman’s #Cygnus cargo spacecraft, it will travel 62 miles HIGHER than the station’s orbit to deploy satellites.

Happy birthday Jules Verne! A writer of science fiction, he took readers on a journey 'Around the World in 80 Days.' In his honor, we take our own journey around the world, exploring 7 far-flung ground stations and the communications networks they support: https://nasa.tumblr.com/post/182658361574/around-the-world-in-seven-ground-stations?linkId=63391585

Hey @ArianaGrande, we saw 'NASA' trending this morning and thought it was about one of our new discoveries. But we realized that you might need some space.
It’s like you’re the universe and we’re N-A-S-A
Three months after delivering several tons of supplies and science, @NorthropGrumman’s #Cygnus cargo spacecraft will depart the @Space_Station.

The last five years have been the hottest in the modern record. So what? This means that fire seasons are burning hotter and longer and melting ice is raising sea levels around the world.

45 years ago, the Skylab 4 crew splashed down after their 84-day mission -- the longest at the time. They completed far more science experiments than planned and conducted 4 spacewalks. Their return ended the crewed phase of the Skylab Program. /feature/45-years-ago-splashdown-of-third-and-final-skylab-crew/
