On August 8, 1991, Apollo 15 astronaut Jim Irwin suffered a heart attack after a bike ride. Attempts at resuscitation were unsuccessful, and Irwin died later that day in the hospital. He is buried at Arlington National Cemetery. He was survived by his widow, Mary Ellen, and their five children. Of the 12 men who have walked on the moon, Irwin was the first to die. The James Irwin Charter Schools were founded in Colorado in his honor. #apolloprogram #projectapollo #apollo15 #jimirwin #space #spaceexploration #flight #aviation #moon #luna #astronaut #astronauts #nasa #kennedyspacecenter #johnsonspacecenter #inmemoryof #instagood #instagram #explorer

Dan’s nearly 18 years of being a part of the NASA community is coming to a close! Yesterday we helped celebrate his time there being as a part of his going away party. It was so fun, especially the behind the scenes tour of Mission Control. What a day! #Fangirl #spaceexploration #johnsonspacecenter #mcnealsmovetomaryland

🇺🇸🇺🇸🚀🚀Goals... Have vision for them. Never give up for that ultimate goal. We are the ones that limit our capabilities. Write your own history and achieve your dreams. Sacrifice comes into play when reaching for your ultimate goals. Nothing in life comes easy.

While visiting Houston we had the opportunity to reconnect with friends from home and also go to NASA! It was absolutely an amazing time! 😁 #travel #roadtrek #spacethefinalfrontier #nasa #johnsonspacecenter #iwanttobeanastronaut #bubblesisawesome #canwesendbubblestospace
I love my internship! This month I helped coordinate the Crew Expedition 52/53 Welcome Home ceremony! In the green shirts are a few astronauts and some fellow interns that attended the event ❤️#nasa #johnsonspacecenter @nasainternships @nasajohnson
NASA astronaut and flight engineer Mark Vande Hei managed to capture this image of Houston, Texas by night from the ISS at 250 miles above the Earth. Vande Hei, who's part of Expedition 54, tweeted: "Hello, Houston! Looking forward to being home after AstroAcaba and I land next week. Lots of great people down there!". Houston is home to NASA's Johnson Space Center, where astronauts train for human spaceflight.

#Repost @apolloprogram (@get_repost ) ・・・ This work of art is titled The Dream and was painted by Apollo 12 LMP Alan Bean. As we all know lunar landing missions of Project Apollo allowed two men to walk on the moon while the third crew member (the CMP) stayed in lunar orbit as it was his job to make the connection between both the Lunar Module and Command Module. Alan Bean came to have such a profound respect for a man by the name of Richard Gordon who was Apollo 12’s CMP. When people would present Alan Bean as the man who would join commander Pete Conrad on the lunar surface Richard Gordon never said a smart remark or ever showed an ounce of jealousy. He proudly took on the roll of Command Module Pilot of Apollo 12 and stayed in lunar orbit and lost his chance to walk on the moon but Alan Bean always dreamed and wondered of what it would have been like if Richard had been able to join Pete and him on the Moon. I look forward when mankind returns to the moon and we have not one or two but multiple people in a photograph from the lunar surface - Jay #apolloprogram #projectapollo #apollo12 #peteconrad #alanbean #richardgordon #flight #aviation #nasa #space #spaceexploration #moon #luna #art #painting #kennedyspacecenter #johnsonspacecenter #universe #universetoday #science #technology #awesome #instagram #picoftheday #photooftheday #lunarmodule

Did you know? . As a joke following Apollo 13's successful splashdown, Grumman Aerospace Corporation pilot Sam Greenberg (who had helped with the strategy for re-routing power from the LM to the crippled CM) issued a invoice for $400,540.05 to North American Rockwell (manufacturer of the service module) for "towing" the crippled ship most of the way to the Moon and back. The figure was based on an estimated 400,001 miles (643,739 km) at $1.00 per mile, plus $4.00 for the first mile. An extra $536.05 was included for battery charging, oxygen, and an "additional guest in room" (Swigert). A 20% "commercial discount," as well as a further 2% discount if North American were to pay in cash, reduced the total to $312,421.24.[44] North American declined payment, noting that it had ferried three previous Grumman LMs to the Moon (Apollo 10, Apollo 11 and Apollo 12) with no such reciprocal charges. #apolloprogram #projectapollo #apollo13 #moon #jimlovell #fredhaise #jackswigert #space #saturn5 #commandmodule #lunarmodule #lostmoon #flight #aviation #universe #universetoday #flight #houstonwehaveaproblem #luna #nasa #kennedyspacecenter #johnsonspacecenter #awesome #aviationdaily #aviationlovers
Day 2: SAW FREAKING NASA!! I can’t even begin to explain how cool this was. Expect a million pictures #nasa #johnsonspacecenter #houston #missioncontrol #robots #rockets #trainingfacility #thedeansinhouston
Here is the comparison of the two photos. The top is the one I took during the solar eclipse, and the bottom is courtesy of @nasa . I am in complete awe right now. I thought I took a bad photo at first! #nasa #johnsonspacecenter #houston #solareclipse #sun #moon #astrophotography #phenomena #inawe
I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use. // Galileo Galilei I was so inspired by our trip to NASA. Humans are amazing. There is nothing we can't do. Between this tour and obsessively watching the Olympics - my faith in us is restored. In the midst of all our fighting and all the anger, at our core we are truly incredible. Let's work to remember the things that keep us inspired, the amazing things we have done and how to keep pushing toward what's next. We are going to be ok. #nasa #johnsonspacecenter #whatsnext
The Johnson Space Center was incredible. You guys, we actually got to see the Mission Control Room, and sit in the viewing room (original seats, yo!) I had no idea that was even available, so it was a great treat! There were all kinds of original things on display (THE helmet & gloves, landing pods, etc), a rock from the moon we could touch, and a shuttle piggybacked in a 747, both of which we could tour. The entire campus felt like it was stuck in the 60’s, and my history-loving heart loved every minute of it. #dayinhouston #johnsonspacecenter #Apollo13 #and1112and17werecooltoo
Our day in Houston was successful. By the end, we had full tummies, learned new things, and had very tired feet! #dayinhouston #kolachefactory #whataburger #rudysbbq #johnsonspacecenter
We were so blessed to go on a tour of the Johnson Space Center with the best tour guide possible. 1. My great uncle Milton standing next to a picture of him from almost 50 years ago actually making history as a MASS flight director. 2. HISTORIC mission control. The room in which the first and last words from the moon were spoken. The room in which Uncle Milton went to work every day. The room in which they brought homthe boys from #apollo13 . 3. My cutie family. ❤️❤️ 4. An ACTUAL piece of #apollo13 . No big deal. It has just been in OUTER SPACE 5. Replica of the Lunar Module. Made of mylar and unusable in Earth's gravity. 6 & 7. Uncle Milton teaching us about the Apollo missions. Because he was #intheroomwhereithappened 8. Mock-up of the international space station for training and development. Parts of the ACTUAL space station (model in top right of photo) designed in part by Milton himself. Basically 🤯🤯🤯 #nasa #johnsonspacecenter #historicmissioncontrol #apolloprogram #internationalspacestation #rocketscience
I’m taking over @canadianspaceagency account today, go take a look to learn more about my training. /// Je prends le contrôle du compte de l’@agencespatialecanadienne aujourd’hui, allez jeter un coup d’œil pour en savoir plus sur ma formation. 👨‍🚀 #Repost @canadianspaceagency ・・・ First training of the day: the Internal Thermal Control System that will keep me cool and comfortable when I’ll be onboard the @iss. Without thermal controls, the temperature of the Space Station's Sun-facing side would soar to 121 degrees C, while thermometers on the dark side would plunge to minus -157 degrees C! #space #iss #spacestation #training #canadian #astronaut #nasa #johnsonspacecenter

'Cause it's next. 'Cause we came out of the cave, and we looked over the hill and we saw fire; and we crossed the ocean and we pioneered the west, and we took to the sky. The history of man is hung on a timeline of exploration and this is what's next. // Sam Seaborn . . #nasa #johnsonspacecenter #rocketpark #gallileo #apollo11 #saturnv #mercury #whatsnext #westwing
