nasa Already feeling the Halloween spirit? 💀 This galaxy looks like it’s rising from the dead. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Messier 110 is an elliptical galaxy — a type of galaxy that’s often considered “dead” because it contains mostly old stars. But astronomers have spotted signs of a population of young, blue stars at the center of Messier 110, hinting that it may not be so “dead” after all. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Click the link in the bio for more info ⬆️⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Image credit: ESA/@NASAHubble & NASA, L.

nasa Eons of erosion on Mars have formed the sweeping layers seen in this sedimentary rock located in Danielson crater, an impact crater located in the Arabia Terra region of the Red Planet.⁣ ⁣ This stereo image taken by our Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter allows scientists to measure the thicknesses of these sedimentary layers. The layer thicknesses and how they vary through time can provide some insight into the processes, possibly linked to ancient climate, that deposited the layers so long ago.⁣ ⁣ Image Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/University of Arizona⁣ ⁣ #Mars #rocks #nasa #space #solarsystem

nasa “Humanity glides by beneath us as we go screaming through the sky.” Astronaut Nick Hague captured this image from one of the windows of the International Space Station (@ISS) as the orbiting laboratory moved around the Earth at ~5 miles (~8 kilometers) a second. He is now reaching the tail-end of his 200-day mission, with less than a month left until he returns to Earth. Image Credit: Nick Hague / NASA #NASA #Space #Earth

nasa "The living history of the Earth jumps out at you through buckles, folds, giant fans," wrote astronaut Nick Hague (@astrohague) about his photo of the "Eye of the Sahara" from the International Space Station (@ISS). Scroll through for more images of this striking geologic feature, the Richat Structure of Mauritania, captured by astronauts on the station and @NASAEarth satellites. ⁣ ⁣ Located in the Sahara Desert, it measures 28 miles (45 kilometers) across and is made up of igneous and sedimentary rocks. It's thought to be caused by an uplifted dome that has been eroded to expose the originally flat rock layers.⁣ ⁣ #mauritania #sahara #desert #richatstructure #geology #earthart #spaceart⁣ ⁣ 1) Photograph taken from the International Space Station, Sept. 2019.

nasa Cloud formations over the Pacific! ⁣⁣☁️☁️☁️ ⁣⁣ An astronaut on the @ISS took this photo on April 4, 2019, while the station was traveling near the southernmost reaches of its orbit over the South Pacific Ocean. The striking colors within the cloud formation are a result of the local sunrise. When the Sun is at a low angle (relative to the atmosphere and the space station), sunlight passes through a thicker slice of the atmosphere. This can enhance the red end of the visible color spectrum, leading to the pink hues visible at the center of the image. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ The astronaut who took this photograph sent a message to ask if this specific cloud formation had been a named tropical cyclone. However, because the weather system was short-lived, the storm dissipated before making landfall, and thus was not named. ⁣⁣ ⁣ Image Credit: NASA⁣ ⁣⁣ #clouds #spacestation #weather #nasa #astronautphotographs #cloudformations

nasa Saturn is so beautiful that astronomers cannot resist using the @NASAHubble Space Telescope to take yearly snapshots of the ringed world when it is at its closest distance to Earth. 😍⁣ ⁣ This image, however, is more than just a beauty shot. It reveals exquisite details of the planet as a part of the Outer Planets Atmospheres Legacy project to help scientists understand the atmospheric dynamics of our solar system's gas giants.⁣ ⁣ Click the link in the bio for more info ⬆️⁣ ⁣ Image Credit: NASA, ESA, A.

nasa A galaxy so faint you can barely see it ✨ @NASAHubble Space Telescope recently caught a glimpse of a galaxy 30 million light-years away. UGC 695 has so few stars that its brightness is less than the background brightness of Earth’s atmosphere — making it difficult to observe. Thankfully, Hubble managed to take a peek for us.

nasa No, this isn’t a firework. 🎆 You are looking at a flame and the glowing soot clusters it produced aboard the International Space Station (@ISS). These yellow soot clusters grow larger than those on Earth, because they stay inside the flame longer in microgravity. This flame was one of many ignited inside a combustion research facility to investigate the amount of soot that is produced in different conditions. Soot is the carbon residue left behind when organic matter (or other carbon-containing material) doesn’t fully burn. It causes environmental and health issues, but can be helpful in multiple ways, including by enhancing radiant heat. This experiment could allow the design of flames that are more sooty or soot-free. These results may help create burner designs which are more efficient and less polluting. Credit: NASA #flame #space #microgravity #heat

nasa At the North Pole of Mars, springtime is avalanche season! ⁣ ⁣ The @UAHiRISE camera on our Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft captured this cloud of dust on May 29, 2019, as melting ice blocks broke loose and tumbled down a cliff face over 1600 feet (500 meters) tall. ⁣ ⁣ Image Credit: NASA/JPL/University of Arizona⁣ ⁣ #mars #avalanche #dust #solarsystem #nasa

nasa Greenland is where it’s at. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ And by “it,” we mean three of our different ice measuring missions — Operation #IceBridge, Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) and the Airborne Visible/Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (AVIRIS). ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ IceBridge is in Greenland beginning a series of flights to measure sea ice and land ice during the summer melt season. OMG is studying the ocean’s effect on the island’s melt and AVIRIS is verifying how the satellite #ICESat2’s lasers are working to see melty ice. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ In the last image, you can see all three planes meeting on the runway. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Image 1 & 2: Linette Boisvert/NASA⁣⁣ Image 3 & 4: John Sonntag/NASA⁣⁣ Image 5: Eugenia de Marco/NASA⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #NASA #Earth #Ice
