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. 

Earlier today, Northrup Grumman's cargo craft was successfully released from the . Among the cargo onboard during the November launch was a student-designed investigation seeking to understand Earth’s origin and early history.

Where does a spacecraft to go after it departs the @Space_Station?

For @NorthropGrumman’s cargo spacecraft, it will travel 62 miles HIGHER than the station’s orbit to deploy satellites. Find out why: 

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: 

It’s so hard to say goodbye! @NorthropGrumman’s cargo spacecraft successfully departed the @Space_Station today. Next, it will:

Alter its orbit
Deploy mini satellites
Harmlessly burn up over the Pacific Ocean

Correction: There was an error in a previous Tweet that has since been deleted. We identified melting sea ice as causing sea level rise when we meant melting land ice causes sea level rise.

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. Stay safe and informed:

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/
