How do you prepare a spacecraft for a journey to touch the Sun? Our Parker #solarprobe is being lowered into a 40-foot-tall thermal vacuum chamber that simulates the harsh conditions it will experience on its quest through space. Details: https://t.co/IQ4XvA9hbv https://t.co/AqnrmBMggh

Where do those X-rays come from? This morning at 7:17am ET, a rocket was launched into the Alaskan sky to measure sources of X-rays that hurtle towards Earth from elsewhere in our galaxy. Discover more about the mission: https://t.co/NsER37MtqZ https://t.co/Jqg3rrW8ZS

Our solar system’s largest inhabitant – Jupiter – is so colossal that 11 Earths could fit across it’s clouded disk. Here's the planet’s striking south polar region, viewed by our @NASAJuno spacecraft as it performed its 10th close flyby on Dec. 16, 2017: https://t.co/Ss6380oci9 https://t.co/tB0TmaRMGe

@anuragshinde08 To keep astronauts safe, scientists use radar to keep track of all the debris in orbit. When an object is expected to come within a few miles of @Space_Station , we can slightly change the station's path to avoid it. More: https://t.co/5PuP1HoEGK

An asteroid we’ve had our eye on for over 14 years will make a close approach to Earth on Feb. 4. No need to worry, during its closest approach, the asteroid will be no closer than 10x’s the distance between Earth & the Moon, which is ~2.6 million miles: https://t.co/o89W24dGws https://t.co/p5lVmdVW61

Like humans, our Sun loses mass as it ages, weakening its gravitational pull. To study the dynamics of our aging star, @NASASun researchers have enlisted Mercury, the smallest, innermost planet in the solar system. See how: https://t.co/IaUqVgW9Zx https://t.co/a8U55nPdsJ

We’re testing a power source that could provide safe, efficient energy for future crewed missions to the Moon, Mars & beyond. The system may be essential for day-to-day mission needs, like lighting, water & oxygen, as well as fuel for the journey home: https://t.co/vRYuKr4iqn https://t.co/kLzwrvhl5Z
