From landing on Mars to launching the powerful @NASAWebb, it’s hard to beat the monumental achievements we’ve had this past year. But in #NASAScience our momentum doesn’t just stop, it keeps going! Here are 10 things I look forward to in science this year: ImageImageImageImage
#1: First Images of @NASAWebb
Soon we will #UnfoldTheUniverse, looking to the first stars and galaxies formed over 13.5 billion years ago. I am so excited to see what this powerful telescope will uncover about our universe this year.
#2: Celebrating 50 years of Landsat and the start of Landsat Next
Last year we launched @USGS/@NASA_Landsat 9, adding to the legacy of satellites tracking changes on Earth from space. Now, we celebrate the progress we've made as we continue to better understand our home planet. Image

This. Is. Amazing.

NASA's #ParkerSolarProbe was able to image the surface of #Venus from space in a way we didn't think possible before!

Here, we can see the Aphrodite Terra highland *glowing* through the clouds (left), exactly where radar data tell us it should be (right)! ImageImage
Venus' thick cloud layer obscures the surface from space at visible wavelengths—but there are some "windows" at near-infrared wavelengths where cameras can see through to the surface.

PSP took these images at a wavelength not thought to be able to penetrate the clouds before.
This matters because, unlike Mars, Mercury, the Moon, etc, we can't easily see the Venus surface—we have to use radar.

But if we can "see" the surface in the near infrared, we can start to learn things about what it's made of. And thus we can learn new things about Venus.

Now, a little more about me...

In early 2018 I wrote to a large range of companies within the space industry asking to see whether they would be able to provide a weeks work experience - after checking with school whether it was possible to do this outside of the UK...
I heard back from @ulalaunch, with a letter from @torybruno inviting me out to Cape Canaveral for the launch of the Delta IV Heavy - an offer you couldn’t really say no to!

So that Summer I travelled out to spend three weeks out in Florida with my family to see the launch! Image
I was also able to chase @SpaceX Boosters with @julia_bergeron down a @PortCanaveral for many afternoons in the hot sun... as well see the launch of Falcon 9 with Merah Putih! ImageImageImageImage

Début de la seconde présentation de ce matin pour cette deuxième journée à Tromsø pour #AuroraHunters ! On va parler de l’observation du soleil, depuis l’espace ! Dr Jackie Davies de @RAL_Space_STFC présente cette seconde présentation !
C’est parti, et la première question est quand même assez simple mais essentielle : pourquoi? Pourquoi cherche-t-on a observer le soleil depuis l’espace..? Et bien tout simplement pour s’affranchir de l’atmosphère ! #AuroraHunters
L’atmosphère, on l’a vu ce matin, est extrêmement utile et bénéfique, et joue un rôle protecteur, essentiel pour le développement de la vie sur Terre... mais cela bloque énormément de choses qu’il est pourtant intéressant d’étudier ! #AuroraHunters

yarin, insanlik tarihinin onemli bazi “ilk”lerini iceren bir gorev baslayacak #ParkerSolarProbe gunesi incelemeye gidiyor, hem de sadece 6 milyon km yakindan.
eldeki mumkun olan en guclu roketlerle firlatilacak (4Delta IV Heavy) ve Venus’ten 7 kez gravity assist alacak
neden peki? gunesin kutlecekimi 300 milyar km otede dahi etkiliyken, parker bey’i birakiversek te gunes onu kendine cekse sonra frenlesek (hidrazin) ya?
tek akilli biz olsak belki. ama @NASA muhendisleri de epeyce akilli. o is oyle kolay olmuyor.
hattasi, misal vesta’ya gitmek (gunes’in kutlecekimine karsi olmasina ragmen) bu gorevden 60 kat daha bile kolay. cunku; parker’i oylece birakamiyoruz. niye; cunku dunya gunes’e goreli olarak 110.000 km/saat cizgisel hizla hareket ediyor. (gifteki mavi vektor)
