This Is Messed Up. So They're Telling Me I Could've Passed This Particular Requirement To Become An #astronaut ?!? I Grew Up.. In A Single Parent Mexican Family, 7 Siblings in One Tiny House Washing This Meal Down With #tang Which Is Also What They Drink In Space! Man, I'm Pissed😠 So The Only Difference Between Me & Them Is I Lived In An Area Code In The Barrio... These White Boys Eating Like Us, Can Claim #space ! Yeah, I'm Jealous SO WHAT Ey 😛
Humans are fascinated by the possibility of life elsewhere in the Universe. If life is found humans might be able to inhabit the planet. As we all know we will be unable to live if Earth forever, we will need to find another planet to ensure survival. Unfortunately, the vast distance of space prevents a physical search far beyond the solar system- the Pioneer Probe launched in 1972, for example will take about 2 million years to reach the star Aldebaran. Many probes are not expected to last for more than 20 years therefore this would be impossible with today's technology. Instead astronomers use powerful telescopes to find exoplanets (planets outside of our solar system). Recently astronomers have found exoplanets that could potentially inhabit humans.

I absolutely loved working on this #customillustration for my beautiful friend Sherose! She and her son Mikey love exploring space with their glorious hair flowing free. 😍😍😍 What creative games do you play with your kids? Or when you were a kid? Nora is into playing Wizard of Oz lately. ❤️

Freaky fast and really awesome! NASA astronaut Jack Fischer posted this GIF to his social media Tuesday saying, “I was checking the view out the back window & decided to take a pic so you can see proof of our ludicrous speed! #SpaceIsAwesome ”. In case you didn’t know, the International Space Station travels 17,500 miles per hour as it orbits 250 miles above the Earth.
Currently, three humans are living and working there, conducting important science and research. The orbiting laboratory is home to more than 250 experiments, including some that are helping us determine the effects of microgravity on the human body. Research on the station will not only help us send humans deeper into space than ever before, including to destinations like Mars, but also benefits life here on Earth.
