Since 1961, NASA astronauts have been training at the Johnson Space Center in Texas for the greatest adventure any human being can undertake: surviving in space. The Red Bulletin visits space boot camp to quiz NASA’s experts. Click the link in our bio to learn how you can become an astronaut, survive space and train for the mission to Mars.

Here is the beautiful elephants trunk nebula,
The Elephant's Trunk Nebula winds through the emission nebula and young star cluster complex IC 1396, in the high and far off constellation of Cepheus. Of course, the cosmic elephant's trunk is over 20 light-years long. This composite was recorded through narrow band filters that transmit the light from ionized hydrogen, sulfur, and oxygen atoms in the region. The resulting image highlights the bright swept-back ridges that outline pockets of cool interstellar dust and gas. Such embedded, dark, tendril-shaped clouds contain the raw material for star formation and hide protostars within the obscuring cosmic dust. Nearly 3,000 light-years distant, the relatively faint IC 1396 complex covers a large region on the sky, spanning over 5 degrees, breathtaking #space#solarsystem#spacex#nasa#deepspace#explore#nebula#cosmos
Himalayas These peaks and rivers in southwestern China were captured by @nasa's Terra satellite in 2002. The image is false-color, composed of wavelengths in infrared as well as visible. The instrument that acquired this image was ASTER, the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer.
All carefully collected data by an outstanding team of engineers and scientists. Thank you @nasajpl@nasagoddard@usgs EROS
NASA, gizemli iki buz devi olan Uranüs ve Neptün'ü araştırmak için planlar yapıyor.
SEXTA FINALMENTE! Se o Universo tá dando sinal verde pra curtir, então bora lá!
Nessa imagem curiosa, vemos um rostinho sorrindo pra gente! Mas na verdade, o que estamos vendo são 2 galáxias!
Os olhos são as galáxias SDSSCGB 8842.3 é SDSSCGB 8843.4, o sorrisão e o contorno do rosto são causados por um efeito chamado Lente Gravitacional.
Estruturas massivas no Universo possuem tanto poder gravitacional que podem dobrar o espaço-tempo ao seu redor e funcionar como lentes cósmicas, que podem aumentar, distorcer e dobrar a luz atrás delas. Esse fenômeno pode ser explicado pela teoria da relatividade geral de Einstein.
Here in Southwest Colorado there's a mountain range called the San Juans with an iconic Peak Mount Sneffels. This mountain range has been feature in many western movies and is the home to several small towns known for their tourism, off-road Jeeping and rich history in the Gold & Silver mining era of the 1800's. @canonusa 6d @rokinon 24mm

Mark your calendars! On August 21 the Sun with align with the Moon, casting a shadow on Earth that will travel from Oregon to South Carolina. This comic phenomenon is called a total solar eclipse and it will be crossing the nation for the first time in 99 years. Eclipse chasers are gearing up to catch a glimpse of this natural wonder.

Today's #EarthFromSpace image of the week is from Copernicus EU Sentinel-3, taken on 7 April and giving us a nearly cloud-free view of France and the surrounding countries. Just above the centre we can see Paris – the home of ESA’s headquarters as well as the venue for the 52nd Paris Air & Space Show, taking place this week at Salon International de l’Aéronautique et de l'Espace - Paris Le Bourget.
