Neither tilt nor dust nor gloom of Martian winter stays Opportunity from the patient completion of its appointed rounds. Rover braves yet another season, almost 14 years into a 90-day mission. Find out more at the link in our bio: go.nasa.gov/2jkX9lV Here, late-afternoon shadows include one cast by Opportunity itself in this look toward the floor of Endeavour Crater about a week before the rover’s eighth Martian winter solstice.
“Visions of the future.” Travel posters to distant worlds made by @icreature for Nasa.
1. NASA's Voyager mission took advantage of a once-every-175-year alignment of the outer planets for a grand tour of the solar system. The twin spacecraft revealed details about Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune – using each planet's gravity to send them on to the next destination. Voyager set the stage for such ambitious orbiter missions as Galileo to Jupiter and Cassini to Saturn. Today both Voyager spacecraft continue to return valuable science from the far reaches of our solar system.
2. NASA's Mars Exploration Program seeks to understand whether Mars was, is, or can be a habitable world. Mission like Mars Pathfinder, Mars Exploration Rovers, Mars Science Laboratory and Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, among many others, have provided important information in understanding of the habitability of Mars. This poster imagines a future day when we have achieved our vision of human exploration of Mars and takes a nostalgic look back at the great imagined milestones of Mars exploration that will someday be celebrated as “historic sites.”
3. There's no place like home. Warm, wet and with an atmosphere that's just right, Earth is the only place we know of with life – and lots of it. JPL's Earth science missions monitor our home planet and how it's changing so it can continue to provide a safe haven as we reach deeper into the cosmos.
4. The rare science opportunity of planetary transits has long inspired bold voyages to exotic vantage points – journeys such as James Cook's trek to the South Pacific to watch Venus and Mercury cross the face of the Sun in 1769. Spacecraft now allow us the luxury to study these cosmic crossings at times of our choosing from unique locales across our solar system.

ESO 510-G13 is a heavily warped edge-on spiral galaxy about 150 million light-years away in the southern constellation Hydra. The galaxy illustrates that a galaxy’s disk is very fragile and can be easily distorted by gravity caused by interacting galaxies.
The most prominent features in this image are the galaxy’s heavily warped thin disk of stars, gas, and dust, its glowing central bulge, composed mostly of old stars, and its bright clusters of blue stars. The dark clouds of gas and dust in the disk stand out in this picture because they block the light of background stars, and because they are silhouetted from behind by light from the galaxy’s bright, smooth central bulge.
In the outer regions of ESO 510-G13, especially visible on the right-hand side of the image, the bent disk contains not only dark dust but also bright clusters of blue stars. These clusters are evidence that hot, young stars are being formed in the disk.
The strong warping of the disk indicates that ESO 510-G13 has recently undergone a collision with a nearby galaxy and is in the process of swallowing it. The formation of new stars is most likely triggered by this collision.
When galaxies collide, clouds of dust and gas smash together and are compressed in a process that takes millions of years, creating a favorable environment for star birth. Eventually the disturbances will die out, and ESO 510-G13 will become a normal-appearing single galaxy.
Much of ESO 510-G13 appears whitish because it contains stars of many different colors, which combine to create a white appearance in the image. However, near the dark band of dusty gas slicing through the middle of this galaxy, the starlight appears redder because the dusty gas blocks blue light more effectively than red light.

Cassini science team members Nora Alonge (right), Scott Edgington (center), and Jo Pitesky (left) hug as the final loss of signal from the #Cassini spacecraft is confirmed, indicating Cassini's destruction in Saturn's atmosphere and the end of Cassini's 20-year mission to gain a better understanding of the ringed planet and its icy moons, at the #JPL in Pasadena, California, on September 15, 2017 . Within moments of loss of signal, the spacecraft plunged into Saturn's atmosphere where it burned up and disappeared in what #NASA called #GrandFinale .

Voyager 1 Fires Up Backup Thrusters After 37 Years!! This will extend the life of the Voyager 1 spacecraft by two to three years. Voyager 1 is NASA's farthest and fastest spacecraft & is the only human-made object in interstellar space, the environment between the stars.
The twin Voyager spacecraft celebrated 40 years of continual operation in August and September 2017.

Every time we check into a hotel Thieves is the first thing in my diffuser. Health Canada approved for cough and cold support.
Here are some of my other FAVORITE uses: -Rub 1 drop on the bottoms of feet before heading out for the day -Add 1-2 drops in mop water to add extra cleaning power -Make a deep cleaning scrub with Thieves oil + baking soda -Clean your dishwasher by running an empty cycle with white vinegar and 2 drops of Thieves oil in the detergent dispenser -Use to remove stains from whiteboards -Add 1 drop to the cardboard on the insides of your toilet paper rolls to keep your bathroom smelling fresh -Apply to bee stings to to neutralize and ease pain -Use while oil pulling for a more enjoyable flavour and extra cleaning benefits -Add a few drops to your furnace filters when you change them out. Makes your WHOLE house smell wonderful when you turn on the furnance 🍂Diffuser Recipe: "Refresh" 3 drops Thieves + 3 drops Peppermint .
