As @NASA_Orion prepares to bid the Moon adieu, the #Artemis I mission says, "Goodnight, Moon!"
Check out this video of @AstroMarshburn reading aloud from the children's book during a past “Read Along, Draw Along” event hosted by Crayola and HarperKids.
One day in the solar system: Here are a few views captured – today – by @NASA spacecraft. 🛰📸🧵
This is the Moon and the distant crescent Earth as seen today by the @NASA_Orion spacecraft during the #Artemis I mission. nasa.gov/artemis
An observatory that will capture light from Earth’s outer atmosphere is set to launch in 2025 with a new name – The Carruthers Geocorona Observatory – in honor of Dr. George R. Carruthers, who designed & built the first lunar telescope, flown on Apollo 16. go.nasa.gov/3XRVMNb
We’re planning one of our biggest feats ever – bringing Mars samples to Earth – and you can play a part.
We're looking for your feedback on Mars Sample Return in a series of in-person meetings. Find details and updated meeting locations here: go.nasa.gov/3gniufj
There’s nothing like a weekend road trip – and you can follow @NASA_Orion’s journey as it heads back to Earth! We’ve listed all the ways you can keep up-to-date with the #Artemis I mission, including the live tracker, in this @tumblr post: bit.ly/3VAlAeF
Can we fix it? Yes, we can 🔧
Astronauts Josh Cassada and Frank Rubio have successfully installed Roll-Out Solar Array on the starboard truss structure of the @Space_Station. They have also disconnected a cable allowing restoring a power channel to 75% of its operating capacity.
@mrsgeedeck@Space_Station The astronauts do not recharge or refill their suits during a spacewalk. Instead they are wearing spacesuits that are self-contained units providing everything a spacewalker needs for life support during a spacewalk.
Watch as the newly installed Roll-Out Solar Array deploys on the @Space_Station’s starboard truss structure for the first time. Astronauts Josh Cassada and Frank Rubio are more than five hours into their spacewalk.
@abibrownman A variety of tethers keep astronauts safely attached to the station as they move back and forth. Other tethers keep the spacewalkers stable and close to the worksite allowing them to use both their hands for different tasks.
@byjork Snoopy is currently orbiting about 43,600 mi (70,167 km) above the Moon's surface. You can track Snoopy aboard @NASA_Orion with our Artemis Tracker, which uses real-time telemetry data to show where Orion is at all times: nasa.gov/trackartemis
@RabergerRaphael Chemistry, that's great! But don't count yourself out. The road to your dreams is not a straight path and you never know where life takes you. Keep the dream alive and we'll hope to see you here some time. ✨
@RichardTKoenig We usually plan for a seven-hour spacewalk, though they can go longer or shorter. Astronauts Susan Helms and Jim Voss hold the record for longest spacewalk at 8 hours and 56 minutes (March 10, 2001).
