So tomorrow #NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter circling Moon since 2009 is scheduled to fly over #Chandrayaan2 #Vikram lander's site. Interestingly #LRO was close enough during Vikram's landing to gather data about maneuver using its Lyman-Alpha Mapping Project instrument.
"As a matter of fact during descent of #Chandrayaan2, the
Lyman-Alpha Mapping Project #LAMP instrument was observing the changes in the exosphere of #Moon as a result of the rocket effluence coming down"

- Jay Jenkins, Office of Exploration at NASA's Science Mission Directorate
#ISRO lost contact with #Chandrayaan2's #Vikram during final stages of its descent. An unexplained wobble may have caused Vikram to go off course, data suggests. Descent was to last around 15 minutes. But around 11 minutes after Vikram began its decent, things went haywire.

@DrDenaGrayson @VP @jaketapper In the U.S. at least, air pollution is down since 1992 for every single pollutant the EPA measures. And our CO2 emissions are down since the mid-1990s, yet #ClimateCatastrophists claim NONE of that improvement has slowed global, or U.S. #ClimateChange.

@DrDenaGrayson @VP @jaketapper For more than forty-five years the Clean Air Act has cut pollution as the U.S. economy has grown.
Carbon dioxide is not pollution. It’s colorless, odorless, and tasteless.

@DrDenaGrayson @VP @jaketapper Watch the animated version & see how average global temperatures continually vary and move around erratically with no relationship or response to any nation’s #GlobalWarming prevention policies or actions.

@mattyglesias Also: we need to understand the ideological roots of the frightening science denialism of this administration. Media is failing to cover, but the American people need to understand /1
@mattyglesias Remember Scott Pruitt our EPA director? Evangelical science denier. /2 religionnews.com/2016/12/08/eva…

We have never set foot on the moon. We were lied to by the very people we trusted the most. This happened to us. We are in an abusive relationship with a space agency. Accepting the truth is one small step. jtrue.com/blog/litany-of… #NASA #NASAlies #QAnon #flatearth #disclosure
An eagle can see a rabbit from 2 miles away. An eagle can see five times farther than you or I. The ISS is 100 rabbits wide and 220 miles away. The best eagle cannot see the ISS but we can. Something doesn't jive. #ISS #NASALies
In 1958 - Operation Hardtack - U.S. Hydrogen Bomb testing on Johnson Island in the South Pacific. We claimed the rocket lost control and detonated "accidentally" six miles above the island. Why?

“Earthrise: A Video Reconstruction” is #NASA #astronomy picture of the day by @apod/@USRAedu apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap181223.… Apollo 8’s iconic photo “Earthrise” was taken 50 years ago; 4K HD animation shows astronauts’ view using NASA LRO data of lunar surface
“Earthrise in 4K” is a 50th anniversary commemoration of the 1968 #Earthrise image during Apollo 8, and description how the rendering was made with NASA LRO imagery/data taken since 2009, by @NASA/@NASAGoddard/@USRAedu #astronomy #Apollo50 #Apollo8 #Moon
#Apollo8 was historic for 1st time humans left Earth and orbited the Moon. Apollo was intended as Cold War competition with Soviets. Starting with #Earthrise photo and many other observations, we found we had much to learn about Earth there. #astronomy #space #history

READY TO BRAVE THE SMOKE! I'm on my way to a bone check today. This DEXA scan will determine if I lost bone mass over time, following #NASA spaceflight simulations. #PillownautTale

*** THREAD *** In NASA facility, Galveston Island - Isokinetics LabFARU - Flight Analogs Research Unit
For my newer followers, my "pillownaut" handle is a reference to the medical programs at Johnson Space Center 2008-2014. In #NASA quarantine, one of the few comforts flight analogs could have during simulations was a comfy pillow, LOL...! #PillownautTale NASA Quarantine FARU (Flight Analog Research Unit)
I did a 70+ day Micro-gravity study (where I spent 54 days at a head-down tilt) and a 21-day Lunar Gravity study -- both intended to give #NASA data on how to keep astronauts more healthy by developing countermeasures to weightlessess. #PillownautTale NASA Centrifuge testing

Happy Birthday #NASA. 60 has never looked better!🎉🎂

From the beginning, Goddard has worked to support our agency’s work of uncovering the universe 🌃.

Here are a few ways Goddard has helped along the way. #NASA60th
It started with Dr. Robert Goddard! In 1926, he successfully tested the first rocket using liquid fuel 🚀🚀. Today he’s known as the “Father of Modern Rocketry.” #NASA60th
go.nasa.gov/2y5sAam
To honor his discovery, the Goddard Space Flight Center was named after him. Our campus became #NASA’s first space flight center in 1959. #NASA60th

Answered #NASA career questions for an intern this morning, note none of my advice was to take more math classes <THREAD>
1/ If you aren't learning and your job has become routine, it is time to do something new (could be new task, new position, or new company entirely).
2/ Leadership includes two things: initiative and communication. Get things done that need doing, make sure everyone knows what needs to get done and what got done

Pour info vous avez peut-être vu passer des informations sur le budget de la #NASA aujourd'hui. Alors un petit #Thread:
1: C'est la proposition de la Maison Blanche pour l'année Fiscale 2019, qui démarre en novembre 2018. Elle ne fait pas autorité.
2: Cette proposition "FY2019" est ensuite envoyée au Congrès US dont chacune des deux chambres peut modifier le texte avant de le voter, qui fait ensuite des allers-retours si la Maison Blanche pose son véto.
Inutile de vous dire qu'à la fin, c'est pas mal modifié.
3: Ce qui est rigolo c'est qu'il y a une date fixe pour la proposition "FY2019" aujourd'hui, mais que le budget de l'année fiscale 2018 n'a toujours pas réussi à faire consensus. Ca fait 4 mois que la NASA vit sur un budget de transition appelé un CR (Continuing Resolution)...
