  • This beautiful image of the Jupiter’s chaotic jets and vortices was captured by our Juno spacecraft (@NASAJuno) as it performed its 13th close flyby. At the time, the spacecraft was about 4,900 miles (7,900 kilometers) from the tops of the clouds of the gas giant planet. The view is oriented with south on Jupiter toward upper left and north toward lower right. 
Since 2016 Juno has been penetrating Jupiter’s deep, colorful zones and belts in a quest to answer fundamental questions about the gas giant planet's origin and evolution.

  • How would you go about finding the brightest, distant galaxies possible? For our Hubble Space Telescope (@NASAHubble) team, they are looking at 41 massive galaxy clusters to find the celestial objects for the upcoming Webb Space Telescope (@NASAWebb) to study. This new sparkling view shows one of the clusters of galaxies along with a few homeless stars. 
The enormous gravitational influence of such clusters distorts the space around them in such a way that they can be used as giant cosmic lenses that magnify distant background galaxies. Studying some of the earliest galaxies in the universe will tell us more about our cosmic origins.

  • Bang and whoosh! When a meteoroid hit the surface of Mars and exploded to make this crater, it also destabilized the slope and initiated the avalanche seen here by our Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. While the crater itself is only five meters across, the slope streak it started is one kilometer long!

  • Just another day at the office – in space! 🌏Today, @Astro_Ricky & @Astro_Feustel completed a spacewalk that lasted 6 hours, 49 minutes to install new high-definition cameras that will provide enhanced views of spacecraft docking with the International Space Station (@ISS). To enable the enhanced views, the two spacewalkers installed brackets and the cameras near an international docking adapter connected to the front end of the space station’s Harmony module. They also routed the ethernet and power cables to connect the cameras to the station. The booms holding the cameras also expand the wireless network at the orbiting laboratory.

This marks the 211th spacewalk in support of assembly and maintenance of the unique orbiting laboratory where humans have been living and working continuously for nearly 18 years. Spacewalkers have now spent a total of 54 days, 23 hours and 29 minutes working outside the station.

  • Mars is infamous for intense dust storms. Right now, a massive Martian dust storm is affecting operations of our Opportunity rover. This storm is already one of the most intense ever observed on the Red Planet. The storm, which was first detected by our Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on May 30, has grown to cover more than 15.8 million square miles (41 million square kilometers) as of June 10 – an area about the size of North America and Russia combined. It has blocked out so much sunlight, it has effectively turned day into night for Opportunity, which is located near the center of the storm, inside Mars' Perseverance Valley.

These two views from our Mars Curiosity rover, acquired specifically to measure the amount of dust inside Gale Crater, show that dust has increased over three days from a major Martian dust storm. In the first image, we see a view of the east-northeast rim of Gale Crater on June 10, 2018 (Sol 2077). Swipe to see a view of the same feature on June 7, 2018 (Sol 2074), three days earlier. The images were taken by the rover's Mastcam.

  • As air traffic continues to surge in the U.S., neighbors who live near airports are complaining about the escalating noise.  All the while, the demand for faster aircraft that travel at supersonic speeds is accelerating.

To address the expected noise levels of future aircraft, our Commercial Supersonic Technology project is already developing technologies focused on reducing the noise produced by an aircraft’s engine exhaust.

Acoustics experts at our Glenn Research Center (@nasaglenn) in Cleveland recently used the center’s Aero-Acoustic Propulsion Laboratory to complete an evaluation on a small-scale model of a Learjet engine exhaust, or nozzle, system.

The blue, curved array at the top of the dome held microphones for making the noise measurements and simulating a flyover. The large door to the right was opened to exhaust the air from the jet during tests.

  • There’s no mistaking the beauty of majestic icescapes like this!❄️ Operation IceBridge, the largest airborne survey to map Earth’s polar ice, captures unprecedented three-dimensional views of Arctic and Antarctic ice sheets, ice shelves and sea ice. Many of the photographs from our lengthy missions feature the icy landscapes of Greenland and Antarctica, but the view during our shorter missions reveal some equally majestic landscapes, like this image of the Wrangell Mountains in eastern Alaska. Clouds like those pictured here were persistent throughout the IceBridge mission, but the researchers still managed to collect data during 10 of 11 possible flight days. Data collected during Operation IceBridge will help scientists better understand processes that connect the polar regions with the global climate system.

  • Dynamic loops extend off the Sun a distance ten times the diameter of Earth in this extreme ultraviolet light view from our Solar Dynamics Observatory seen May 30-June 1, 2018. When the magnetic field lines get themselves tangled up enough, they can erupt with a solar storm. 
We use the observatory to understand the Sun's influence on Earth and near-Earth space by studying the solar atmosphere in many wavelengths simultaneously. This allows us to better understand the solar variations that influence life on Earth and humanity's technological systems by looking for solar wind, energetic particles, and variations in the solar irradiance that lead to better predictions of space weather events.
