We’re launching from American soil once again with a brand new spacecraft through NASA’s @Commercial_Crew program. Tony Castilleja and Celena Dopart take a deep dive into the @Boeing Starliner this week on “Houston, We Have a Podcast.”

Space is hard. We commend @ISRO’s attempt to land their 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.

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. Learn more about this @NASASun mission: 

This week:

Keeping an eye on from space
Preparing to launch crew members to the @Space_Station
