Another one in the books. One hell of a team I got to work with to produce this end of year event. Here’s to 2018 ... “Go Boldly into the Beyond”

🌎🌑🌗🌔💫☄️ Al igual que la Tierra, este nuevo planeta se ubica en la tercera posición desde su sol, pero está mucho más cerca de él y, por lo tanto, tiene una temperatura de 427 grados Celsius en la superficie. De hecho, esos ocho planetas están apretujados alrededor de Kepler-90 y orbitan mucho más cerca de él que la Tierra de nuestro Sol. Al igual que la Tierra, este nuevo planeta se ubica en la tercera posición desde su sol, pero está mucho más cerca de él y, por lo tanto, tiene una temperatura de 427 grados Celsius (800 Fahrenheit) en la superficie. De hecho, esos ocho planetas están apretujados alrededor de Kepler-90 y orbitan mucho más cerca de él que la Tierra de nuestro Sol. Este es el único sistema solar de ocho planetas que se ha encontrado como el nuestro, hasta ahora. Nuestro sistema tenía nueve planetas hasta que Plutón fue catalogado como planeta enano en 2006 por la Unión Astronómica Internacional, una clasificación que todavía permanece. #solarsystem #stargazing #astronomy #stars #constellations #meteor #meteorshower #nightsky #december #whatsupthis #hubble #science #universe #telescope #cosmos #galaxies #earthfromspace #italia #italy #happyanniversary #astronautlife #spacetoday #katia #irma #jose #nature #satellites #hurricanes #hurricaneseason

NASA astronaut Jack Fischer ( @astro2fish) and cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin of the Russian space agency Roscosmos launched into orbit to begin their four and a half month mission on the International Space Station. After a six-hour flight, their Soyuz arrived at the International Space Station ( @ISS) at 9:18 a.m. EDT Thursday, where the two new crew members joined Commander Peggy Whitson of NASA and Flight Engineers Oleg Novitskiy of Roscosmos and Thomas Pesquet of ESA (European Space Agency). The crew members will conduct approximately 250 science investigations in fields such as biology, Earth science, human research, physical sciences and technology development.

#repost from @astro_paolo Con i miei (stretti) amici @sergeyiss e @astrokomrade nella nostra Soyuz MS-05 per i test prima del rientro. Riuscire a starci è sempre sorprendente, soprattutto adesso che i mesi in microgravità ci hanno resi più alti! . . . With my (very very) close friends @sergeyiss and @astrokomrade in our Soyuz MS-05, for today’s pressure check of our reentry suit. It’s always a surprise that we actually fit, even more so now that microgravity made us taller! #VITAmission #almostready #home #backhome #astronautlife #spacestation #space #crew #taller Reposted in @gridsapp

Mettendo alla prova un nuovo scudo contro le radiazioni cosmiche (uno dei 'nemici' degli astronauti nelle missioni di lunga durata): questa veste è riempita di acqua e protegge i nostri organi più delicati! . . . Testing a new shield against cosmic radiation (one of the 'enemies' of long-duration missions): filled with water (first picture) this vest protects our most delicate organs #VITAmission #science #space #SpaceScience #cosmicradiation #astronautlife

Oh — and then, years later, astronomers apparently decided to zoom in on one of the dark sections in the original photo and produced the “Extreme Deep Field” image. #space #telescope #hubble #hubblespacetelescope #solarsystem #stargazing #astronomy #stars #constellations #meteor #meteorshower #geminids #nightsky #december #whatsupthis #hubble #science #universe #telescope #cosmos #galaxies #earthfromspace #astronautlife #spacetoday #nature #satellites #hurricanes #hurricaneseason

“In 1995 a group of astronomers decided to point the Hubble Space Telescope at a very small, apparently empty patch in the sky close to the Big Dipper just out of curiosity. After ten full days of exposing the telescope’s CCD camera sensor to this seemingly empty patch of sky, this is the picture that was produced.” #solarsystem #stargazing #astronomy #stars #constellations #meteor #meteorshower #nightsky #whatsupthis #hubble #science #universe #telescope #cosmos #galaxies #earthfromspace #astronautlife #spacetoday #nature #satellites #hurricanes #hurricaneseason #space #telescope #hubblespacetelescope

〰 Elon Musk shares SpaceX's new spacesuit 👨🏽‍🚀〰 - "Astronaut spacesuit next to Crew Dragon," Musk wrote in the post on his Instagram account ( @elonmusk ) - The company is developing this spacecraft to fly people to and from the International Space Station (ISS), among other destinations. SpaceX holds a NASA contract to ferry astronauts to and from the ISS. And the first crewed test flights are scheduled to begin next summer. 🚀 - #space #spacesuit #spacelover #spacelovers #spaceaddict #astronomy #astronomylover #ISS #internationalspacestation #spacex #spacexsuit #astronaut #dragoncrew #nasa #elonmusk #astronautlife #astronautlover #newspacesuit #spacetime
