This colorful view of Mercury was produced by using images from the color base map imaging campaign during Messanger’s primary mission.
These colors are not what Mercury would look like to the human eye, but rather the colors enhance the chemical, mineralogical, and physical differences between the rocks that make up Mercury's surface.

No one ever expected this to continue burning since 1971. 😰
The Darvaza gas crater, also known as the Door to Hell or Gates of Hell, is a natural gas field collapsed into a cavern located in Derweze, Turkmenistan. Geologists intentionally set it on fire to prevent the spread of methane gas and it is thought to have been burning continuously since 1971.

The Star Wars film trilogies are known for the iconic "Death Star," an alien battle station that shoots out beams of directed energy powerful enough to blow up planets. The real universe makes much more extraordinary beams that can unleash in a few seconds as much energy as our sun will generate over its 10-billion-year lifetime. These beams blast out of imploding stars at over 99% the speed of light. They carry most of their energy in the form of gamma-rays—a lethal form of radiation that can penetrate bone and tear apart living cells. If our planet got caught in a nearby gamma-ray burst (GRB) the atmosphere would be largely stripped away.
The current record for a super-powerful GRB goes to a January 2019 outburst. The eruption came from a galaxy located so far away that the explosion actually happened 5 billion years ago. When the diluted radiation finally arrived at Earth, it was seen by our satellite sentries that monitor the sky for such fireworks: NASA’s Swift and Fermi telescopes, in addition to the Major Atmospheric Gamma Imaging Cherenkov (MAGIC) telescopes on the Canary islands.
Hubble can't detect gamma-rays, but its sharp vision was used to see where the burst came from. The host galaxy of the GRB is actually one of a pair of colliding galaxies. The galaxy interactions may have contributed to the blast.

Meezy has dysgraphia— for those of you who aren’t familiar, its a [email protected] neuro diversity that can affect one’s ability to write, organize thoughts and motor and informational processing skills. He’s been working with an AMAZING writing tutor since September and has been making great strides in freeing up his ability to get his thoughts down on paper. This is a video his tutor took of him talking through an idea he had about how to minimize space junk with a redesign of satellites. She was inspired to share with her brother in law who consults for satellite making companies. He happened to be here consulting at a firm in Redmond, WA— and he was so impressed with Mizan’s idea— he shared with the team he was working with. He also gifted Mizan this coin to acknowledge and to encourage his efforts! I am in awe, gratitude and in disbelief. This young man has so much to say and I’m so excited he’s finding ways to share what’s going on in his head! #dysgraphiaawareness#writingtutor#nasa#satellites#unschoolinglife#proudmama#meezyrules

Les reflets du ciel nocturne du plus grand miroir du monde
Le plus grand reflet du monde est celui de notre Voie Lactée. Des étoiles, des Galaxies et une planète. Beaucoup de ces étoiles sont confinées dans cette grande arche qui traverse l'image. Une arche qui constitue le plan central de notre maison, la Voie Lactée. Une autre Galaxie se trouve à l'intérieur de la voute : le Grand nuage de Magellan (LMC). Les étoiles visibles individuellemment incluent Antarès à l'extrême gauche et Sirius à l'extrême droite. La planète Jupiter brille de milles feux juste sous Antarès. Cette photo présentée est composée de 15 images verticales prises consécutivement pendant dix minutes à partir du salar d'Uyuni en Bolivie. Le salar d'Uyuni (Salar de Uyuni) est le plus grand du le monde. Il est si grand et si extraordinairement plat qu'il peut, après une pluie devenir le plus grand miroir au monde - s'étendant sur 130 kilomètres. Ce vaste miroir a été capturé début avril et reflète chacune des galaxies, étoiles et planètes mentionnées ci-dessus.

Night Sky Reflections from the World's Largest Mirror
What's being reflected in the world's largest mirror? Stars, galaxies, and a planet. Many of these stars are confined to the grand arch that runs across the image, an arch that is the central plane of our home Milky Way Galaxy. Inside the arch is another galaxy -- the neighboring Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Stars that are individually visible include Antares on the far left and Sirius on the far right. The planet Jupiter shines brightly just below Antares. The featured picture is composed of 15 vertical frames taken consecutively over ten minutes from the Uyuni Salt Flat in Bolivia. Uyuni Salt Flat (Salar de Uyuni) is the largest salt flat on Earth and is so large and so extraordinarily flat that, after a rain, it can become the world's largest mirror -- spanning 130 kilometers. This expansive mirror was captured in early April reflecting each of the galaxies, stars, and planet mentioned above.

I have a strange fascination with nasa? I don’t care for space but I like the company? Maybe it’s the science of it all? Either way it’s a comfort
