🔹''Today, we are thrilled to announce that scientists have detected gravitational waves coming from the collision of two neutron stars—the smallest and densest stars. This event occurred 130 million light-years from Earth, in a galaxy far away.''
.
🔹''The discovery was made using the #NSFfundedU.S.-based Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (#LIGO); the Europe-based Virgo detector; and some 70 ground- and space-based observatories. Bravo!''

🔹Dream Chaser at Dawn
Dawn brings the sight of Dream Chaser, Sierra Nevada Corporation’s reusable spacecraft, as it sits on the runway at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center (AFRC). Dream Chaser is being prepared to deliver cargo to the International Space Station under NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services 2 (CRS2) contract beginning in 2019.
.
🔹It is currently undergoing testing at Armstrong in preparation for its approach and landing flight later this year. The space shuttle underwent similar testing at the center in the 1970s. Dream Chaser is different in that it is currently being designed to make automated pilotless flights to the station.

🔹XMM-Newton slew tracks
.
🔹This blue ‘ball of string’ actually records 2114 movements made by ESA’s XMM-Newton space telescope as it shifted its gaze from one X-ray object to another between August 2001 and December 2014.
. 🔹Orbiting in space since 1999, XMM-Newton is studying high-energy phenomena in the Universe, such as black holes, neutron stars, pulsars and stellar winds.
.
🔹Even when moving its focus between objects, the space telescope collects scientific data, revealing X-ray sources across the entire sky. After correcting for overlaps between slews, 84% of the sky has now been covered.
.
🔹The plot is in galactic coordinates such that the centre of the plot corresponds to the centre of the Milky Way. The slew paths pass predominantly through the ecliptic poles, indicated by the density of overlapping slew paths to the top left and bottom right.

🔹''When the entire sky is filled with the dancing northern lights, it’s difficult to decide where to look! The fisheye lens gets the best view. When aurora is in storm level, the form, speed, and colors of the lights are breath-taking. I photographed this a few years ago in northern Sweden, with my colleague @nightskyphotographer. It was strong enough to be recognized from even central Europe, as a red glow on the northern horizon.''

🔹Mae Jemison
.
🔹 When the space shuttle Endeavour blasted off on its second mission, it carried the first African American woman into space.
.
🔹But Mae Jemison was more than an astronaut – she's also a physician, a Peace Corps volunteer, a teacher, and founder and president of two technology companies.
.
🔹 On Sept. 12, 1992, Mae Jemison became the first African American woman in space when the space shuttle Endeavour carried her and six other astronauts on 126 orbits around the Earth.
.
🔹A mission specialist, Jemison was a co-investigator of two bone cell research experiments, one of 43 investigations that were done on mission STS-47.

🔹Soaring Over Jupiter
.
🔹This striking image of Jupiter was captured by NASA’s Juno spacecraft as it performed its eighth flyby of the gas giant planet.
.
🔹The image was taken on Sept. 1, 2017 at 2:58 p.m. PDT (5:58 p.m. EDT). At the time the image was taken, the spacecraft was 4,707 miles (7,576 kilometers) from the tops of the clouds of the planet at a latitude of about -17.4 degrees.
.
🔹Citizen scientist Gerald Eichstädt processed this image using data from the JunoCam imager. Points of interest are “Whale's Tail” and "Dan's Spot.”
.
🔹JunoCam's raw images are available for the public to peruse and process into image .

🔹The destruction of a planet may sound like the stuff of science fiction, but a team of astronomers found evidence that this may have happened in an ancient cluster of stars at the edge of the Milky Way galaxy.
.
🔹Using several telescopes, including NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, researchers found evidence that a white dwarf star — the dense core of a star like the Sun that has run out of nuclear fuel — may have ripped apart a planet as it came too close! .
