"Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us." – Carl Sagan
A newly processed version of the iconic ‘Pale Blue Dot’ image shows Earth 4 billion miles away from our Voyager 1 spacecraft, taken on #ValentinesDay 1990.
The updated image uses modern image-processing software and techniques while respecting the intent of those who planned the image. Like the original, the new color view shows Planet Earth as a single, bright blue pixel in the vastness of space. Rays of sunlight scattered within the camera optics stretch across the scene, one of which happens to have intersected dramatically with Earth.

So fresh, so clean 😎
This sleek piece of hardware you’re looking at is the Laser Communications Relay Demonstration (LCRD). On Jan. 22, the mission shipped from @NASAGoddard to @NorthropGrumman for integration into the @USAirforce Space Test Program Satellite 6.
#LCRD is our first optical relay and will demonstrate the extraordinary capabilities of optical, or laser, communications! For #Artemis missions to the Moon, missions to Mars and beyond, optical communications will play a key role in bringing more science and data back to Earth – as well as enable astronauts to phone home! 📸: NASA/Chris Gunn

“We saw to the edge of all there is—
So brutal and alive it seemed to comprehend us back.” -Tracy K. Smith, US Poet Laureate
Some pictures are worth a thousand words and some a thousand thoughts. On Jan. 31, @astro_christina shared this emotional view and quote from the @ISS.
Now, we share it for you. What do you think of when staring at the cusp of our world? ⬇️ Drop your feelings in the comments!

This striking swirl of outstretched stars is considered a grand design spiral galaxy — a title earned by only one-tenth of its kind.
While all spirals have a similar structure, there is quite a bit of variation among individual galaxies; some have patchy, oddly shaped arms, some have bars of stars cutting through their core, some are colossal and radiant, and others are dim and diminutive. Grand designs like this one are in many ways the archetype of a spiral galaxy. They are characterized by their prominent, well-defined arms, which circle outward from a clear core.

A HERO is home. 🌎
#CongratsChristina! After the longest single spaceflight of any woman, a monumental #AllWomanSpacewalk (3 times!) and hundreds of experiments aboard the @ISS – @Astro_Christina has secured her place in the record books. You are an inspiration to all! ✨
Koch, along with Soyuz Commander Alexander Skvortsov of @roscosmosofficial and Luca Parmitano of @europeanspaceagency, landed safely in Kazakhstan at 4:12 a.m. EST. Congratulations to the Expedition 61 crewmates on a successful mission, and thank you for your countless contributions to science, research and exploration!

Put an ice ring on it 💍
For several decades, scientists and astronauts observing Lake Baikal have noticed giant rings in the spring ice on one of the world’s oldest and deepest lakes.
While the rings have attracted speculation and a few conspiracy theories, decades of satellite data and field-based studies have shed light on why they form. Warm eddies of water circulate in a clockwise direction under the ice cover. The ice melts near the eddy boundary, but not at the eddy center where the currents are weak. The research team is still investigating what causes the eddies, but data suggests that they typically get going in autumn, before ice has covered the lake.

The perfect place to raise some baby stars 👶 🌟
The galaxy depicted in this @NASAHubble image is a barred spiral in the constellation of Pisces.
A barred spiral is a galaxy with pinwheeling arms and a bright center that is intersected by a bar of gas and stars. This bar cuts directly through the galaxy’s central region and is thought to fuel star formation. As a result, spiral bars are theorized to be excellent stellar nurseries for new baby stars.
We think bars exist in up to two-thirds of all spiral galaxies, including our own home, the Milky Way.

We fly high, no lie. You know this.
254 miles high, to be exact. 😉 Working with a view of our beautiful blue marble below, astronauts @AstroDrewMorgan and Luca Parmitano completed their third and final spacewalk to upgrade the International Space Station’s dark matter and antimatter detector on January 25.
During the 6 hours and 16 minute spacewalk, the two astronauts worked tethered to the orbital lab while traveling roughly 17,000mph around Earth. @AstroDrewMorgan’s spacesuit has red stripes while Luca Parmitano’s spacesuit has white stripes.

Time to revisit Tarantula Nebula 🕷️
The Tarantula Nebula was one of the first targets studied by Spitzer Space Telescope after its launch in 2003. Now that the infrared observatory is set to be retired on Jan. 30, scientists have generated a new view of the nebula from Spitzer data.
Even though infrared light is invisible to the human eye, some wavelengths of infrared can pass through clouds of gas and dust where visible light cannot. This is how scientists use infrared observations to view newborn stars swaddled in the clouds of gas and dust from which they formed.

You probably dreamed of this… ✨ 👩🚀
The next frontier isn’t just for the next generation – it’s for this generation. With our Artemis program, we will land the first woman and next man on the Moon by 2024.
📚 We’ve been learning.
🚀 We’ve been building.
💪 We’ve been training.
And now it’s time.
