Despite looking like a single image, this photograph combines three different images of the Sun.🌞 The blue regions on this image were captured by @NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) mission and highlights highly energetic regions on the Sun. Similarly, the yellow and red regions were captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) mission in extreme ultraviolet light, highlighting different parts of the Sun’s atmosphere. The JAXA/NASA Hinode spacecraft captured the low-energy X-rays that appear green in this image. Together, the images highlight flaring, active regions of our Sun that are heated to several millions of degrees. During the observations taken by these missions, microflares went off. These are smaller versions of large flares that erupt from the Sun’s surface. These microflares rapidly release energy and heat the material in the active regions.

Introducing a new Olympic category: the cosmic tug-of-war!☄️ This image taken by @NASAHubble captures a three-way gravitational tug-of-war between interacting galaxies. This system is featured in the Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies, a list which showcases some of the weirder and more wonderful galaxies in the universe. Observing time with Hubble is extremely valuable, so astronomers don't want to waste a second. The schedule for Hubble observations is calculated using a computer algorithm which allows the spacecraft to occasionally gather bonus snapshots of data between longer observations. This image of the clashing triplet of galaxies is one such snapshot. Extra observations such as these do more than provide spectacular images – they also help to identify promising targets to follow up with using telescopes such as the upcoming James Webb Space Telescope.

Intense rainfall swept across communities in Germany, Belgium, and The Netherlands. Swipe to see the aftermath of the extreme rainfalls in parts of Western Europe. Precipitation records were broken in some of the most heavily impacted areas, whereas two months worth of rain fell in 24 hours, swamping the land. Nearly 5,000 people were forced to evacuate from their homes in Roermond, The Netherlands as water levels rose. Studies have shown that the warming climate has led to more intense and frequent downpours in many parts of the world. 📷: NASA Earth Observatory images by Lauren Dauphin, using Landsat data from the U.S. Geological Survey

What kinds of things do you see in this image?👇 The center of this image captured by @NASAHubble is framed by the tell-tale arcs that result from strong gravitational lensing, a striking astronomical phenomenon which can warp, magnify, or even duplicate the appearance of distant galaxies. Gravitational lensing occurs when light from a distant galaxy is subtly distorted by the gravitational pull of an intervening astronomical object. In this case, the relatively nearby galaxy cluster has lensed a significantly more distant inactive galaxy which has run out of the gas required to form new stars and is located 10 billion light-years away. Astronomers can use gravitational lensing as a natural magnifying glass, allowing them to inspect objects like distant dormant galaxies which would usually be too difficult for even Hubble to resolve.

Citius - Altius - Fortius. Faster - Higher - Stronger. The words to describe the ISS (where these pictures were taken) or an Olympic motto? Great question! Good luck to all of the athletes participating in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan! 📷: 1: Astronaut photograph from November 6, 2017. It was taken with a Nikon D4 digital camera using a 24 millimeter lens and is provided by the ISS Crew Earth Observations Facility and the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit, Johnson Space Center. The image was taken by a member of the Expedition 53 crew. 2: Earth observation taken during a night pass by an Expedition 36 crew member on board the International Space Station (ISS). Photographer: Karen Nyberg. 3: Tokyo, Japan, is pictured from the International Space Station as it orbited 262 miles above the island nation during a night pass. #TokyoOlympics #Olympics #Tokyo #2020Olympics #Tokyo2020 #nasa

The blurry spot above the Arctic is not a smudge on your screen, but rather a shadow cast by our Moon. 🌕 On June 10, 2021, NASA captured this image of the Moon casting a shadow on Earth during an annular solar eclipse. During these events, the Moon is near its farthest point from Earth and appears smaller than the Sun in the sky. As the two align, the Sun appears as a ring of fire surrounding the dark disk of the Moon. #NASA #spacepic #space #solareclipse #eclipse #moon #earth #sun #fire #arctic #shadow

🔭It’s time for a fun fact about the James Webb Space Telescope! 🔭 Did you know that JWST’s iconic honeycomb mirror is made up of 18 gold-plated mirror segments that help astronomers see back more than 13 billion years? These mirrors are made out of beryllium, a relatively rare metal that is lighter than aluminum, but much stronger than steel. Beryllium comes from the Spor Mountain in Utah. It is found within minerals like bertrandite and beryl that formed 25 million years ago as lava cooled after volcanic eruptions. NASA has a long history of using beryllium in other missions including: the Project Mercury return capsule, the Gemini parachute enclosure, onboard International Space Station, the Spirit and Opportunity rovers, the Spitzer Space Telescope, and more! #NASA #space #jameswebb #telescope #beryllium #mirror #utah #lava #missions #mercury #jameswebbspacetelescope #spirit #rover #opportunity #spitzer #astronomy #astronomers

On June 13, 2021, the Hubble Space Telescope’s payload computer unexpectedly came to a halt. However, the Hubble team methodically identified the possible cause and how to compensate for it.

This globular cluster is giving us a serious case of déjà vu😵 This image shows the globular cluster NGC 6380, which lies around 35,000 light-years from Earth, in the constellation Scorpio (the Scorpion). Globular clusters are spherical groups of stars held together by gravity; they often contain some of the oldest stars in their galaxies. The very bright star at the top of the image lies only around 4,000 light-years from Earth, making it a much nearer neighbor than NGC 6380. NGC 6380 was originally discovered by James Dunlop in 1826, and he rather immodestly named it Dun 538. Eight years later, in 1834, it was independently rediscovered by John Herschel and he (similarly immodestly) went on to name it H 3688. The cluster was re-rediscovered in 1959 by Paris Pişmiş, who catalogued it as Tonantzintla 1. In addition to its colorful history of rediscovery, up until the 1950s NGC 6380 was thought to be an open cluster. It was A. D. Thackeray who realized that it was in fact a globular cluster.

As glaciers melt, sea levels don’t rise uniformly around the globe. By studying data and creating models, scientists hope to better understand the processes that drive regional and local changes in sea level. Their goal is to project when, where, and how much seas are likely to rise in the coming decades and centuries. To help with this, NASA and the Indian Space Research Organisation will be launching the NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar (NISAR) mission in 2022. The goal of this mission is to make daily, global measurements of land motion which will lead to major improvements in regional sea level projections. #NASA #space #spacepic #climatechange #earth #science #sealevel #sealevelrise #mission

Can you guess where this picture was taken? 📷 This view of Washington, D.C., was taken by an astronaut on the International Space Station! From above, you can see how all of the roads seem to point to the Capitol, which was the “center” of the original architects’ designs. The diagonal streets radiating from the Capitol are named after the first states, and they act as the city’s main thoroughfares. Can you spot your favorite monument?

#OTD 10 years ago… 🛰️ Astronaut Mike Fossum removed the Robotic Refueling Mission (RRM) payload from the Atlantis Shuttle cargo bay. RRM was the last payload to be removed from the last Space Shuttle mission (STS-135) and attached to @iss by a spacewalking astronaut. During its time on the ISS, the RRM payload stored robotic tools that Station’s Dextre robot used to test technologies and techniques for robotically refueling and repairing satellites in orbit. In March 2017, the RRM module departed Station, but not before completing critical demonstrations that are helping usher in a more sustainable era of spaceflight via in-space servicing. The RRM demonstrations also established tools and techniques that will be applied to the upcoming On-orbit Servicing, Assembly, and Manufacturing 1 (OSAM-1) mission which will refuel a satellite.
