Liftoff! @SpaceX 's #CRS26 cargo mission launched at 2:20pm EST, bringing new unfurling solar arrays, fresh food, and a big helping of @ISS_Research to the @Space_Station . Learn more about the science we're sending to orbit:
It's here–the deepest, sharpest infrared view of the universe to date: Webb's First Deep Field. Previewed by @POTUS on July 11, it shows galaxies once invisible to us. The full set of @NASAWebb 's first full-color images & data will be revealed July 12:
IMPACT SUCCESS! Watch from #DARTMIssion ’s DRACO Camera, as the vending machine-sized spacecraft successfully collides with asteroid Dimorphos, which is the size of a football stadium and poses no threat to Earth.
Touchdown confirmed. The #CountdownToMars is complete, but the mission is just beginning.
This is the first time in human history @NASA_Astronauts have entered the @Space_Station from a commercially-made spacecraft. @AstroBehnken and @Astro_Doug have finally arrived to the orbiting laboratory in @SpaceX 's Dragon Endeavour spacecraft.
We celebrate the life of Nichelle Nichols, Star Trek actor, trailblazer, and role model, who symbolized to so many what was possible. She partnered with us to recruit some of the first women and minority astronauts, and inspired generations to reach for the stars.
Better together. International collaboration gave us the most powerful space telescope ever made, and the deepest infrared views of the universe ever seen. With our partners at @esa and @csa_asc , the science can begin. Together we #UnfoldTheUniverse :
Take Five: Captured in exquisite detail, @NASAWebb peered through the thick dust of Stephan’s Quintet, a galaxy cluster showing huge shockwaves and tidal tails. This is a front-row seat to galactic evolution: #UnfoldTheUniverse
