SpaceX Falcon 9 CRS-14 ISS Resupply Images credit & copyright: @spacex. LAUNCH ALERT! Monday, April 2, 2018 at 16:30 EDT (13:30 PDT & 20:30 UTC) a SpaceX Falcon 9 (core 1039.2) previously flown on CRS-12 will be launching from Cape Canaveral’s Space Launch Complex 40 (SLC-40) as part of Commercial Resupply Service 14 (CRS-14 or SPX-14) to resupply the International Space Station (ISS). Dragon (C-110.2 & D1-16) which previously flew on CRS-8 will be captured and berthed to the nadir (Earth facing) side of Station’s Harmony module (Node-2) where it will remain for approximately one month before returning to Earth. Stats: This will be SpaceX’s 7th launch of 2018 and the 58th SpaceX flight overall (5 Falcon 1, 52 Falcon 9, 1 Falcon Heavy). SpaceX will not attempt a Falcon 9 landing on this flight as older “blocks” are discarded to make way for the “Block 5” Falcon 9. To date there have been 23 landings overall; 12 on drone ships and 11 on land. . .

He was selected to become an astronaut by NASA in 1963 as part of Astronaut Group 3. He made his first flight into space aboard Apollo 12, the second manned mission to land on the Moon, at the age of thirty-seven years in November 1969. He made his second and final flight into space on the Skylab 3 mission in 1973, the second manned mission to the Skylab space station. #apolloprogram #projectapollo #nasa #space #spaceexploration #moon #apollo12 #alanbean #astronaut #astronomy #universe #universetoday #flight #aviation #kennedyspacecenter #johnsonspacecenter #discovery #intheshadowofthemoon #science #technology video credit In the shadow of the moon/ discovery channel “ #Artist 🌷✨
How do space geeks celebrate the anniversary of first human in space and the first space shuttle launch (both took place on April 12, twenty years apart)? You throw a collection of worldwide parties called ! I’ll be at one taking place at “The Music Hall,” Portsmouth, NH on Thursday, April 12 from 18:00 to 21:00. Is anyone going to one...who’s ever been to one in the past? . .

"Studying whether there's life on Mars or studying how the universe began, there's something magical about pushing back the frontiers of knowledge. That's something that is almost part of being human, and I'm certain that will continue." Happy birthday to the first American woman to go to space, #SallyRide 💖 Thanks for the inspiration 😍 Photo from my last trip to @spacecenterhou 🚀 . . . #sciencesaturday #astronaut #womeninstem #inspiration #space #nasa #NASASocial #jsc #johnsonspacecenter #womanastronaut

Bright Light, Bright Light! Image credit: @nasahubble. To an astronomer (even us amateurs), nothing is more annoying than light pollution or that neighbor that just won’t turn off their floodlights on the side of the house. Well here we have a different iteration of that same problem. This dwarf galaxy, PGC 39058 is roughly 14 million light years away and contains oh, a few million stars. Now that’s pretty awesome and any amateur astronomer would love to have a look at or an image attempt at this object. I mean how cool is that, there’s even an almost edge on spiral galaxy even further behind still. That is of course, if there wasn’t a Milky Way star directly in the way blocking much of our view. That’s right. That floodlight of a star is actually a star in our own Milky Way galaxy that just happens to be directly in our way. Obviously you don’t need me to tell you how powerful Hubble is but check this out. When you look up, depending on where you are you see a handful to a few thousand stars and the dimmest stars that you can see with the unaided eye, even in the darkest skies are an apparent magnitude of 6 or even down to 6.5 though you will need very dark skies. This particular star, at an apparent magnitude of 6.7 is just beyond that threshold. If you were in the darkest skies and knew where to look you would still need binoculars to view it. Hubble makes it look like the most ferocious supernova ever witnessed. Annoying as it is, we just have to deal with it because this light isn’t moving out of the way for a while and it isn’t going lights out for billions more. Name: PGC 39058 What is it?: Dwarf galaxy obscured by a foreground star in the Milky Way How big is it?: Roughly a few million stars How far away is it?: 14 million light years-ish Apparent magnitude: Foreground star is actually only a magnitude of 6.7 Where is it (general)?: In the constellation of Draco the Dragon Where is it (Exact RA/Dec J2000)?: RA 12h 14m 08.4s / Dec +66° 05′ 41″ . .

Today Ellen Ochoa, former astronaut, retired as program director at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, TX. I remember learning about Ellen Ochoa when I was a little girl. The first Latina in space. Wow! I had only ever imagined that men went to space. No one ever told me that but I always saw photos of men in space so I assumed only boys went on space adventures. And here was Ellen, a Latina like me, out there having adventures. There are many reasons I love NASA and she's a major factor. She's a hard worker, intelligent, a dreamer, a pioneer. And as much as I love NASA, I never had the math grades to pursue a career at NASA and my fear of heights kept me grounded. But I have a little girl who dreams of working there. Whether it's on the ground or in space, my daughter has Ellen and many other women to look up to and plenty of pictures to prove that she can do it because other girls before her did it. Thank you. 🚀🙋 #sisepuede #nasa #johnsonspacecenter #Houston #texas #astronaut #space #girlpower #latina #hispanic
We rocked our final presentations, and went to go get ice cream and see the Saturn V rocket to celebrate! We’re exhausted but excited! We’ve had such an unforgettable experience! We’re excited to see Boise and all of you guys again, but I sure hope I can come back to JSC soon!! It’s been amazing, @nasajohnson ! Thanks especially to @paromita_mitra , @pakepi , and Kevin!! #nasacodes #nasasuits #bronconation #johnsonspacecenter #boisestateuniversity #boisestatecid @nasajohnson @boisestateuniversity

We took an impromptu trip to #JohnsonSpaceCenter yesterday to see Grandpa working (special treat since he’s visiting from WA). The kids were super excited. The moral of this story, though, is don’t take 5 kids to the Space Center by yourself! #wipedmeout #werushedbackforschoolawardsceremonies #crazyday #familyfirst #houston #johnsonspacecenter

We got a chance to visit the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory Lab, or NBL, where astronauts and astronaut candidates train for microgravity. With my recent endeavor in diving, it was neat to find out how they trim the astronaut diver and their suits to be neutrally buoyant in the water. #NASAcodes . . . . . #space #spacesuit #nbl #neutralbouyancy #neutralboyancylaboratory #astronauttraining #spaceexploration #astronaut #johnsonspacecenter #gradschool #universityofnorthdakota #und #tech #diving #scubadiving #iss #internationalspacestation #microgravity
