Pops of green & blue scintillate from this image of the (appropriately named) Fireworks galaxy. Observed by our NuSTAR space observatory, these x-ray flashes were generated by some of the most energetic processes in the universe — including supernovas. https://www.nasa.gov/feature/jpl/nasa-satellite-spots-a-mystery-thats-gone-in-a-flash?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=73353398

We're working hard. Know about it.
"We'll explore the universe because we're N-A-S-A!"
Inspired by our #Artemis missions to explore the Moon and Mars, @NASAInterns working at @NASAJohnson remixed @ArianaGrande’s song “NASA” to create a music video. Press play and turn this up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4obGG_LeCM&feature=youtu.be
We know Mars once had more atmosphere and flowing water, but how much more and for how long? Results from missions like @MarsCuriosity and @MAVEN2Mars are revealing the answers: https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2019/mars-lost-atmosphere?utm_source=TWITTER&utm_medium=NASA&utm_campaign=NASASocial&linkId=73353252

Space is hard. We commend @ISRO’s attempt to land their #Chandrayaan2 mission on the Moon’s South Pole. You have inspired us with your journey and look forward to future opportunities to explore our solar system together. https://twitter.com/isro/status/1170331318132957184
Where does Earth's atmosphere end and space begin? This and other questions soon will be answered by our Ionospheric Connection Explorer, or ICON, spacecraft that will launch Oct. 11.

I spent the last couple of weeks visiting members of Congress and the academic and commercial partners around the country that will make #Artemis possible. Read more about the progress we are making: /feature/nasa-administrator-connects-with-leaders-experts-making-artemis-possible/
Look! A cosmic block party @NASAHubble captured 50 spiral and dwarf galaxies hanging out in our cosmic neighborhood. What looks like a swarm or cloud of stars in the middle is actually a dwarf galaxy!

The Soyuz MS-14 spacecraft bearing Russian gear and supplies is safely back on Earth after parachuting to a landing in south-central Kazakhstan at 5:32 pm EDT. https://go.nasa.gov/2ZKsS6s
While flying about 260 miles above the border between northeastern China and southeastern Russia, an uncrewed Russian Soyuz spacecraft undocked and departed from the Space Station at 2:14 pm EDT. https://go.nasa.gov/2LuQIdg
This week, cameras in the hands of astronauts & mounted outside the @Space_Station captured clear views of #HurricaneDorian from 250 miles above the Earth. Here’s an update about what’s happening aboard our orbiting laboratory: https://youtu.be/K13uQoV3sb0?linkId=73269287 Ask ?s using #SpaceToGround
Oh what a feeling-Sciencing on the ceiling. Science is everywhere on @Space_Station, including a microscope on the ceiling next to an incubator where scientists are growing protein crystals. Why in space? MicroG could help us discover better cancer-fighting medications on Earth.
