Twitter Web Client : Is there water 💧 on the Moon? 🤔

10 years ago, #OTD in 2009, our LCROSS spacecraft left Earth 🌎 on a mission to answer that question. In a crater at the Moon’s 🌘 south pole it discovered water ice, a vital resource for human space exploration:

iPhone : Know a dad who could use a little space this #FathersDay?

Get lost in NASA Spitzer’s view of a nebula located about 10,000 light-years away from our home planet that’s rearing clusters of young stars:

iPhone : Its oh so quiet 🤫

New science from @SOFIATelescope shows us that the Milky Ways black hole 🕳️ is quiet because gas and dust orbits the center instead of falling into it. Check it out:

TweetDeck : We’re asking U.S. companies to provide thoughts on innovative ways to supply #Artemis Moon missions, beginning with the first delivery of supplies to the lunar Gateway by 2024. Details here:

Twitter Web Client : 📍 Let’s put another one right here!

Apollo astronauts deployed a number of experiments on the Moon, including our Lunar Surface Magnetometers. The instruments, developed & built at NASA Ames, were used to study the Moon’s 🌘 composition + its magnetic fields. #FBF #Apollo50th

iPhone : Happy #FlagDay! 🇺🇸 One of our most iconic images is of Buzz Aldrin saluting the American flag on the surface of the Moon. Did you know that over the next 3 years, 5 more flags joined the one left by Apollo 11? Learn more about stars & stripes in space:

iPhone : 🕳️ First, we captured images of the ring of material orbiting our galaxy’s black hole.

🧲 Now, we’ve measured magnetic fields that may be keeping the black hole quiet!

Twitter Web Client : The average distance from Earth 🌎 to the Moon 🌘 is 238,855 miles. In the 1960s, our Apollo navigation simulator was used to test concepts for midcourse correction on the days-long journey to and from the Moon. #TBT #Apollo50th

TweetDeck : We recently launched a swarm of half-dollar-size satellites 🛰️ into space! The mini, low-cost spacecraft, called ChipSats, can pack a mix of tech into a tiny package & may one day be used to explore Earth 🌎, the Moon 🌘, Mars 🔴 and even nearby asteroids:
