Wow! Our Hubble Space Telescope (@NASAHubble) looked toward the constellation of the Swordfish (Dorado) and captured this stunning celestial image. Nestled within the Large Magellanic Cloud, this globular cluster – a tightly bound group of stars – features a ruby-red spot that is actually a carbon star. Carbon stars are almost always cool red giants, with atmospheres containing more carbon that oxygen, which is the opposite of our Sun. Carbon monoxide forms in the outer layer of the star through a combination of these elements, until there is no more oxygen available. Carbon atoms are then free to form a variety of other carbon compounds, which scatter blue light within the star, allowing red light to pass through undisturbed. Credit: ESA/Hubble & NASA

3-2-1… and we have liftoff of Parker Solar Probe atop United Launch Alliance’s Delta IV Heavy rocket 🚀. The probe is headed toward the Sun with a whopping 55 times more energy than is required to reach Mars. About the size of a small car, it weighs a mere 1,400 pounds. Zooming through space in a highly elliptical orbit, Parker Solar Probe will reach speeds up to 430,000 miles per hour — fast enough to get from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C., in a second — setting the record for the fastest spacecraft in history. During its nominal mission lifetime of just under 7 years, Parker Solar Probe will complete 24 orbits of the Sun — reaching within 3.8 million miles of the Sun’s surface at closest approach. We’ll be going where no spacecraft has dared go before — within the corona of a star. With each orbit, we’ll be seeing new regions of the Sun’s atmosphere and learning things about stellar mechanics that we’ve wanted to explore for decades. Credit: NASA/Bill Ingalls

‘Twas the night before launch... Before calling it a night, set an alarm so that you won’t miss the 3:33 a.m. EDT launch of our first-ever mission to “touch” the Sun. Our Parker spacecraft, about the size of a small car, will launch aboard a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket from Space Launch Complex 37 on Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The spacecraft will fly directly into the Sun’s atmosphere where, from a distance of – at the closest approach — approximately 4 million miles from its surface, the spacecraft will trace how energy and heat move through the Sun’s atmosphere and explore what accelerates the solar wind and solar energetic particles. NASA TV launch coverage will begin at 3 a.m. EDT on air and streaming at https://www.nasa.gov/live. Image credit: Bill Ingalls

Ready for liftoff! The Parker , our mission to touch the Sun, will have its first opportunity to lift off on Saturday, Aug. 11, at 3:33 a.m. EDT. Launching from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, Parker Solar Probe will make its journey all the way to the Sun’s atmosphere, or corona — closer to the Sun than any spacecraft in history. Nestled atop a United Launch Alliance (@ulalaunch) Delta IV Heavy — one of the world’s most powerful rockets — with a third stage added, Parker will blast off toward the Sun with a whopping 55 times more energy than is required to reach Mars. About the size of a small car, it weighs a mere 1,400 pounds. Zooming through space in a highly elliptical orbit, the probe will reach speeds up to 430,000 miles per hour — fast enough to get from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C., in a second — setting the record for the fastest spacecraft in history. During its nominal mission lifetime of just under 7 years, Parker Solar Probe will complete 24 orbits of the Sun — reaching within 3.8 million miles of the Sun’s surface at closest approach.

The Columbia Glacier in Alaska descends from an ice field 10,000 feet above sea level, down the flanks of the Chugach Mountains, and into a narrow inlet. It is one of the most rapidly changing glaciers in the world and our Earth observing satellites have been tracking its shifting form for over 30 years. False-color images show how the glacier and the surrounding landscape has changed since 1986. The Landsat images combine shortwave-infrared, near-infrared and green portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. With this combination of wavelengths, snow and ice appears bright cyan, vegetation is green, clouds are white or light orange, and open water is dark blue. Exposed bedrock is brown, while rocky debris on the glacier’s surface is gray. Credit: NASA/USGS/Landsat/Jesse Allen and Robert Simmon

Smoke from 250 miles above. These images of the Carr and Ferguson fires in California were captured from the vantage point of European Space Agency (@europeanspaceagency) astronaut Alexander Gerst (@Astro_Alex_ESA) and NASA astronaut Ricky Arnold (@Astro_Ricky) from the International Space Station (@ISS). Over 4,300 personnel are working to battle the fires in California. Satellite data and emergency response tools enabled by space technology are helping first responders in the field. From a satellite instrument that can provide better estimates of the amounts of particles fires release into the air to tracking fires all over the planet, data gathered in space can have a real impact to saving lives here on Earth.

On its 14th flyby of Jupiter, our Juno spacecraft (@NASAJuno) caught this striking view of the gas giant planet. Like our home planet, Jupiter has cyclones and anticyclones, along with fast-moving jet streams that circle its globe. This image taken on July 16 captures a jet stream located on the far right of the image. It is next to an anticyclonic white oval that is the brighter circular feature in the top right corner. The North Little Red Spot is also visible in this view. Since 2016, Juno has been penetrating Jupiter’s deep, colorful zones and belts in a quest to learn more about the planet's origins, structure, atmosphere and magnetosphere.

Gravitational lenses — such as this galaxy cluster captured by our Hubble Space Telescope (@nasahubble) — possess immense masses that warp their surroundings and bend the light from faraway objects into rings, arcs, streaks, blurs and other odd shapes. This lens is bending the light from a more distant galaxy into a grand arc, which is blue because of the energetic star formation activity in the galaxy. The lens, however, is not only warping the appearance of the distant galaxy — it is also amplifying its light, making it appear much brighter than it would be without the lens. Star formation is a key process in astronomy. Everything that emits light is somehow connected to stars, so understanding how stars form is key to understanding countless objects lying across the cosmos. Astronomers can probe these early star-forming regions to learn about the sizes, luminosities, formation rates and generations of different types of stars. Credit: ESA/Hubble & NASA/Judy Schmidt

The excitement level was 💯 today as we announced the nine astronauts that will fly on some of the first Commercial Crew flights to the International Space Station (@ISS). American companies Boeing (@Boeing) and SpaceX (@SpaceX) have been building brand new, high-tech spaceships to transport astronauts from American soil into space for the first time since the space shuttle retirement in 2011. This new spaceflight capability will allow us to maintain a crew of seven astronauts on the space station. That means more science! This scientific research leads to breakthroughs and also aids in understanding and mitigating the challenges of long-duration spaceflight, which is important in our journey to send humans to the Moon and Mars.

This could be the biggest ghost in the universe.👻 A new image from our Spitzer Space Telescope shows leftover signs of an exploded star, or supernova. Spotted in the Milky Way galaxy, this is the largest known supernova remnant at 150 light-years in diameter and it’s possibly one of the oldest: Astronomers estimate the original explosion may have happened anywhere from 80,000 to one million years ago. Our Spitzer Space Telescope that spotted this fading ghost of a long-dead star is one of our four Great Observatories -- along with the Hubble Space Telescope (@NASAHubble), the Chandra X-ray Observatory (@NASAChandraXray) and the Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory. On Aug. 25, Spitzer celebrates its 15th birthday in space although it was originally designed to “stay alive” for 5 years in the harsh environment of space. Spitzer sees the universe in infrared light, which is slightly less energetic than the optical light we can see with our eyes, and helps us advance our knowledge about the Universe, Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/IPAC

This view never gets old! 🌅Our astronauts take in 16 sunrises and sunsets each day as the International Space Station (@ISS) orbits our home planet every 90 minutes at a speed of 17,500 miles per hour. This image, taken aboard our orbiting laboratory on July 20, shows one of four basketball court-sized main solar arrays that power the space station, in contrast to the bright blue glow of Earth's limb in the background as the orbital complex flew over eastern China. An international crew of six people are currently living and working aboard on the space station. While living aboard humanity’s only permanently occupied microgravity laboratory, they will work on hundreds of experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science, being sure to capture stunning imagery like this along the way.
