Sprinklr : Our scientist Leila Mays will talk about why our Sun’s dynamic activity affects human space travel & how scientists protect astronauts from space weather with American Museum of Natural History on Friday afternoon, Oct. 2. More information:…

Twitter Web App : #SolarOrbiter has released its first trove of data on conditions in the inner solar system. The measurements come from the mission’s in-situ instruments, which sample the environment around the spacecraft itself. More from @ESA:…

Twitter Media Studio : The Sun is stirring from its latest slumber. To predict what the new cycle will look like, scientists use a fleet of Sun-studying satellites & dozens of complex models — all part of the effort to understand the mystifying behavior of the star we live with.

TweetDeck : Over the course of a 20-year career at NASA, Eddie Gonzales has worked to promote STEM engagement for underrepresented and underserved communities.… #HispanicHeritageMonth

Sprinklr : Data from NASA instruments aboard ESA Rosetta Mission have helped revealed that comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko has its own far-ultraviolet aurora, created when electrons from the solar wind interact with the gas in the comet’s coma.

TweetDeck : Its International #ObserveTheMoon Night!!!! What are your observing plans?

Check out for activities, Moon maps, photography tips, ways to observe and more. Plus, you can register your participation to officially join the global celebration.

Sprinklr : #ParkerSolarProbe is speeding toward another solar flyby on Sept. 27. The spacecraft will once again break its own records for speed and distance from the Sun during this sixth perihelion pass. More:…

TweetDeck : .NASA has selected SpaceX to provide the launch for our upcoming Interstellar Mapping and Acceleration Probe and four secondary payloads. IMAP will study the boundaries of the heliosphere, the magnetic bubble surrounding our solar system.…

TweetDeck : As we travel beyond Earth, growing plants in space could be an important source of food for NASA Astronauts. Understanding space radiation conditions is one aspect of optimizing crop growth in space.

Scientists behind the project are live now on Reddit — ask them anything! ⬇️…

TweetDeck : NEWS: For more than 60 years, NASA has been in the business of space exploration & aeronautics. Today, we released our first-ever Economic Impact Report.
