50 years ago, #Apollo12 was struck by lightning twice, seconds after launch. A flight controller's quick action restored systems to normal, and the mission was successfully guided to land on the Moon's Ocean of Storms. Watch: https://go.nasa.gov/2QjEO9T
“The next man and the first woman on the Moon will be American astronauts,” says @VP Mike Pence during a visit to @NASAAmes. Learn more about our #Artemis missions to return to the lunar surface: https://www.nasa.gov/artemis/
As a part of our #Artemis program, we will return @NASA_ Astronauts to the Moon for long-term exploration. “Not only to plant our flag and leave our footprint, but to establish a foundation for an eventual mission to Mars,” says @VP Mike Pence. Watch: https://twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1ypJdBlWeYpKW
LIVE from @NASAAmes: Watch @VP Pence & Administrator @JimBridenstine talk about our #Artemis program and plans to return @NASA_astronauts to the Moon in 2024: https://twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1ypJdBlWeYpKW
Our #Artemis program will return astronauts to the Moon by 2024. 👩🚀👨🚀
Tune in to NASA TV starting at 3:15pm ET to hear @VP Mike Pence and Administrator @JimBridenstine talk about the future of space exploration during a visit to @NASAAmes: http://www.nasa.gov/live
#Apollo12 launched on Nov. 14, 1969, beginning the second mission to land humans on the Moon. 50 years later, @AstroDrewMorgan & @Astro_Luca dressed as Apollo-era flight controllers while preparing for spacewalks to repair the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, starting Nov. 15, 2019.
It was a dark and rainy morning... 50 years ago today, #Apollo12 launched on a mission to land on the Moon & set up instruments to return science data. Cameras capturing the launch show raindrops — and lightning striking the pad after liftoff! More: https://go.nasa.gov/32L0crh
What’s happening with our plans to land humans on the Moon by 2024?🌑
Hear directly from the top as @VP Mike Pence and Administrator @JimBridenstine discuss the role of @NASAAmes in our #Artemis program. Tune in starting at 2:45pm ET: http://www.nasa.gov/live
.@astro_luca & I are preparing for a series of 4 spacewalks to repair the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, a particle physics experiment searching for antimatter to help us understand the origins of the universe. These will be very complex...it was never intended for repair in space!
We’re excited to host @VP Pence & Administrator @JimBridenstine tomorrow for a tour of our world-class research center! Tune in to NASA TV at 11:45am PT for live remarks about our #Artemis program & plans to return astronauts to the Moon in 2024. Details: https://go.nasa.gov/2Qfn9jO
This afternoon, @SpaceX completed a series of static fire engine tests for #CrewDragon's launch escape system.
Now, SpaceX and @NASA will
1⃣ Review data from the test
2⃣ Perform hardware inspections
3⃣ Establish launch date for In-Flight Abort Test
It's harvest time on @Space_Station! 🍃 Astronauts have been cultivating fresh mustard greens in the station's Veggie facility. Today, they cut some of the leaves — half go in freezers for later analysis on Earth, and half are for the crew to taste. More: https://go.nasa.gov/2XgyrFR
In California, Utah & New Jersey, mosquito control agencies use @NASAEarth data to keep new infestations at bay. It's used in a website that helps public health officials monitor and respond to potential outbreaks of mosquito-borne diseases. Details: https://go.nasa.gov/2QhGD7A
.@NASA_Technology in your life: We developed new pressure vessels because we needed stronger, lighter tanks to carry liquids & gas to space. Today, this tech is used widely, including in firefighting equipment, in scuba gear, and even in paintball. More: https://go.nasa.gov/2Odn7GF
Suspended in time, for a cure. On @Space_Station, we're studying Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s in a way we cannot in gravity. Here, we can see the protein clusters of these diseases as they form in floating liquid drops.

Congratulations to @JAXA_en for a very successful investigation and sample collection at asteroid Ryugu! @NASA wishes the @Haya2e_jaxa mission - and the asteroid sample the spacecraft collected - a safe journey home to Earth! https://go.nasa.gov/33JkiDv #SAYONARA_Ryugu
Progress toward the launch of #Artemis I — our @NASA_Orion 🛰️ has completed final assembly and systems testing. The @NASA_SLS 🚀 core stage is nearing completion, as technicians attach the RS-25 engines to propulsion and avionics systems. About Artemis: https://go.nasa.gov/3702N3W
Tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of the launch of #Apollo12! For the long journey, the astronauts needed some sustenance, so here’s a suit tech putting a sandwich in Pete Conrad’s pocket during suit-up for launch.
As our Parker Solar Probe orbits the Sun, its instruments capture data to help solve mysteries of the solar atmosphere.
Data from the mission's first close solar encounters has now been released to the public — for everyone to analyze and use. ☀️📈 More: https://go.nasa.gov/2CCz2bs
Unknown no longer! In a fitting tribute to the farthest flyby ever conducted by spacecraft, Kuiper Belt object #MU69 has officially been named #Arrokoth, a Native American term meaning “sky” in the Powhatan/Algonquian language. https://go.nasa.gov/33HnAqN
