iPhone : I can’t wait for the journey that started with one small step on the Moon to lead to boot prints on Mars.

Follow NASA and tune in to NASA.gov/live for special #Apollo50th programming July 19-20, including rebroadcasts of the landing and first moonwalk in real time.

Twitter Web Client : For those about to rock, I salute you.🤘

For those who could use a little extra #MondayMotivation, check out these rocks I found over the weekend. Here are some pictures from the surface of Mars, just for you.

Sprout Social : Got any plans for the holiday weekend?

Im going for a drive and will check out some layered bedrock with my laser, then Ill take a timeout to inspect my wheels and just observe this gorgeous crater.

Wherever the #4thofJuly takes you, I hope its an adventure.

Twitter Web Client : PewPew Part II: Rock-zapping laser instrument SuperCam was recently installed on #Mars2020 in a clean room at NASA JPL.

Just like I use ChemCam to examine rocks from a distance, it will ID chemical and mineral composition from more than 20 ft (6 m) away: go.nasa.gov/2XnBShc

Twitter Web Client : Hip-bot-hooray! Three cheers for NASAs newest robot: #Dragonfly.

On the search for the building blocks of life, it will fly to various locations on Titan, Saturns largest moon, a place where methane rains from hazy skies. go.nasa.gov/2ZW0c6D

Sprout Social : 🔎 The game is afoot.

Im continuing to investigate the Martian methane mystery. A follow-on investigation shows that this past weeks methane levels have sharply decreased. go.nasa.gov/2ZC0xvc

Twitter Web Client : Something in the air tonight

I detected the largest amount of methane ever during my mission: ~21 parts per billion by volume. While microbial life can be a source of methane on Earth, methane can also be made by interaction between rocks and water. go.nasa.gov/2ZC0xvc

iPhone : While increased methane levels measured by Curiosity Rover are exciting, as possible indicators for life, it’s important to remember this is an early science result. To maintain scientific integrity, the #science team will continue to analyze the data before confirming results.
