Sprinklr : While NASAs Perseverance Mars Rover settles into its new home on Mars, our #ParkerSolarProbe is making a quick visit to Venus. On Feb. 20, Parker performs its fourth Venus gravity assist, a maneuver that makes use of Venus’ gravity to draw its orbit closer to the Sun.

Sprinklr : The solar chromosphere — the thin, reddish layer of the Sun just above its surface — has always been hard to study. For the first time, a triad of NASA missions have peered into the chromosphere to return multi-height measurements of its magnetic field.

TweetDeck : Today’s the day. Trip to Mars, 99.9% complete. The most dangerous part comes last: the final seven minutes.
