This is just the beginning.

No ordinary battery swap & work day routine. Pics from suiting up Anne & Nick for their first spacewalk! 7 hours later, success upgrading the batteries that allow us to have power even when we’re shadowed by the Earth from the sun! Great day of teamwork both on and off the Earth.

Good morning! It’s a new week, filled with new possibilities. If you are able, please reach out to the people around you that are having a hard time. If that person is you, please remember that it is okay to reach out and ask for help. The world can be harsh and cold, that doesn’t mean that we have to be.

What’s it like inside the world’s largest flying observatory? Go behind the scenes of @SOFIAtelescope and meet researchers exploring the cosmos from 40,000 feet! Apply now to attend a #NASASocial event at @NASAArmstrong on April 24. Details: 

We've been feeding a small family of four crows (mated pair and their two year old kids) for several years. Last week two days in a row they left these gifts, pull tabs threaded onto pine twigs. This isn't only generous, it's creative, it's art.
My mind is blown.

It is well worth visiting Castle (Caisteal) Tioram, even though you can't enter the building for safety reasons. You can still look around the castle, & there are some great views.

The castle sits on Eilean Tioram, which is a tidal island in Loch Moidart (a sea loch). Ten minutes before I took my Profile photo there was only exposed sand. Ten minutes after my Profile photo and the tide had come in fully (see photo below). You'd either have to wait it out or swim for it!

A very cool documentary about the Apollo Lunar Module with a lot of footage I'd never seen before:

"This striking view of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot and turbulent southern hemisphere was captured by NASA’s Juno spacecraft as it performed a close pass of the gas giant planet.“

Reader, we literally did type in listings like this

This was our equivalent of Steam.

we thought we could make a better planet by just throwing more... computation at it

and instead we need to throw more love at it

but I don't know where to buy embeddable 8-bit love processors

I don't want 1980s 8-bit microcomputing back. I don't even want the 1980s 8-bit microcomputing subculture back.

I want the future that I thought that subculture would lead to.

A world where we used technology to improve ourselves, improve our world, and share the results fairly with everyone.

And not as a battering ram to smash down other people's doors and take all their stuff.

M81 (right) and M82 (left) are two interacting galaxies in the constellation Ursa Major. Tidal forces from M81 are deforming M82 causing massive star formation in M82. This much higher than normal star formation classifies M82 as a starburst galaxy. #astrophoto
