Editor's Note: This image is a false color infrared image made from a modified digital SLR camera.

 

The Orbital Sciences Corporation Antares rocket, with the Cygnus cargo spacecraft aboard, is seen in this false color infrared image, as it launches from Pad-0A of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport (MARS), Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2013, NASA Wallops Flight Facility, Virginia. Cygnus is on its way to rendezvous with the space station. The spacecraft will deliver about 1,300 pounds (589 kilograms) of cargo, including food and clothing, to the Expedition 37 crew.

This is an artist's concept of the young Earth being bombarded by asteroids. Scientists think these impacts could have delivered significant amounts of organic matter and water to Earth.

The Origins Spectral Interpretation Resource Identification Security -- Regolith Explorer spacecraft (OSIRIS-REx) will travel to a near-Earth asteroid, called Bennu, and bring a sample back to Earth for study. The mission will help scientists investigate how planets formed and how life began, as well as improve our understanding of asteroids that could impact Earth.

 

OSIRIS-REx is scheduled for launch in late 2016. As planned, the spacecraft will reach its asteroid target in 2018 and return a sample to Earth in 2023.

This illustration depicts NASA's Mars 2020 rover on the surface of Mars. The mission, targeted for launch in July/August 2020, takes the next step by not only seeking signs of habitable conditions on Mars in the ancient past, but also searching for signs of past microbial life itself. via NASA ift.tt/2q7Qktb

This image, made using the space telescope NASA / ESA «Hubble» (Hubble Space Telescope) shows an unusual galaxy UGC 12591. galaxy UGC 12591 classification takes an intermediate position between the lenticular and spiral galaxies. It lies at a distance of a little less than 400 million light-years away on the western edge of the galactic superclusters of Pisces-Perseus, a long chain of clusters of galaxies, which stretches for hundreds of millions of light-years away and is one of the largest known structures of the universe. This galaxy is fairly unusual in itself - it has an incredibly large mass. This galaxy and its halo together contain the order of several billion solar masses of matter - that is about four times greater than the mass of the Milky Way.

Editor's note: Happy Friday, everyone! Today is National Umbrella Day, I've just learned, so I posted this image from pre-storm skies last week. Stay dry and warm, Flickr friends! :)

 

Mixed clouds and sun in the skies over Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. This was a view looking south, taken mid-morning before a strong line of storms moved through the area.

Eric Litvin loves NASA! This image was acquired by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera aboard NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on April 18, 2017, at 14:04 local Mars time. It reminded the HiRISE team of the rugged and open terrain of a stark shore-line, perhaps of the British Isles. via NASA ift.tt/2rGyUke

Color mosaic of pancam images acquired by NASA's Opportunity rover on May 10, 2017 (mission sol 4726). Opportunity is at the head of "Perseverance Valley," located on the rim of Endeavour Crater. This view is made from raw uncalibrated images and has been color-adjusted to approximately the type of color you'd see on Mars.

 

The right-hand image was a bit overexposed in the raws so that's why it seems a bit lighter there.
