The last Friday Islands from space (unless I schedule one when in the Soyuz home next week...) and they had to be from France :) Two of these islands were photographed before in different light, feel free to compare / La tradition des îles postées le vendredi touche à sa fin… Trois clichés français pour finir cette série en beauté ! 🇫🇷 #ESA #astronaut #view #island #fridayisland #france #earth #earthpics #earthphotography #earthfromabove #earthfromspace #space #instaspace #ISS #expedition51 #mission #proxima

Happy Africa Day!⠀

Did you know Africa covers about 20% of the total land area in the world?⠀

Go to our @instagram Story to learn more about the continent, and follow the link in our bio to explore our Space for Earth African site.⠀

Today is the 55th anniversary of the launch of Aurora 7. Scott Carpenter spent almost five hours in space, orbiting the Earth three times.

A "short sprint over the clouds with Solar Panels" wrote astronaut Thomas Pesquet (@thom_astro) of the European Space Agency (@europeanspaceagency) from aboard the International Space Station (@ISS). This timelapse showcases the space station's solar panels and incredible views of the planet below.

The space station serves as the world's leading laboratory for conducting cutting-edge microgravity research, and is the primary platform for technology development and testing in space to enable human and robotic exploration of destinations beyond low-Earth orbit, including Mars.

(Cratera Tycho na Lua)

Tycho é uma cratera lunar com aproximadamente 86 km de diâmetro e uma profundidade de 4,8 km. É interessante pensar que esta gigantesca estrutura foi esculpida na superfície da Lua em apenas alguns minutos!
Imaginem o que seria apreciar tal fenómeno a partir da Terra. Depois de um intenso clarão de luz gerado pelo impacto inicial, um observador na superfície do nosso planeta assistiria, durante vários minutos, a uma sucessão de pequenos impactos secundários movendo-se radialmente, desde o local do impacto, em todas as direções, ao longo de mais de 1500 quilómetros.

Big, beautiful spiral galaxy NGC 6744 is nearly 175,000 light-years across, larger than our own Milky Way. It lies some 30 million light-years distant in the southern constellation Pavo appearing as a faint, extended object in small telescopes. We see the disk of the nearby island universe tilted towards our line of sight. This remarkably distinct and detailed galaxy portraitcovers an area about the angular size of the full moon. In it, the giant galaxy's yellowish core is dominated by the light from old, cool stars. Beyond the core, spiral arms filled with young blue star clusters and pinkish star forming regions sweep past a smaller satellite galaxy at the lower left, reminiscent of the Milky Way's satellite galaxy the Large Magellanic Cloud.

This image, taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, shows the colorful "last hurrah" of a star like our sun. The star is ending its life by casting off its outer layers of gas, which formed a cocoon around the star's remaining core. Ultraviolet light from the dying star makes the material glow. The burned-out star, called a white dwarf, is the white dot in the center. Our sun will eventually burn out and shroud itself with stellar debris, but not for another 5 billion years.

Our Milky Way Galaxy is littered with these stellar relics, called planetary nebulae. The objects have nothing to do with planets. Eighteenth- and nineteenth-century astronomers called them the name because through small telescopes they resembled the disks of the distant planets Uranus and Neptune. The planetary nebula in this image is called NGC 2440. The white dwarf at the center of NGC 2440 is one of the hottest known, with a surface temperature of more than 360,000 degrees Fahrenheit (200,000 degrees Celsius). The nebula's chaotic structure suggests that the star shed its mass episodically. During each outburst, the star expelled material in a different direction. This can be seen in the two bowtie-shaped lobes. The nebula also is rich in clouds of dust, some of which form long, dark streaks pointing away from the star. NGC 2440 lies about 4,000 light-years from Earth in the direction of the constellation Puppis.

The material expelled by the star glows with different colors depending on its composition, its density and how close it is to the hot central star. Blue samples helium; blue-green oxygen, and red nitrogen and hydrogen.

Heute hoher Besuch im Audioversum! Die Direktorin Fr. Dr. Beste bei einem Rundgang durch die Ausstellungsräume mit Hr. Dr. Aschbacher (Director of Earth Observation Programmes) und Gästen. #welcome #audioversum #esa #öwf #innsbruck #picoftheday

In November last year, the Cassini spacecraft, orbiting Saturn, passed the tiny moon Daphnis a mere 28 000 km away. This is the highest resolution image ever taken of this moon, which is only 8 x 8 x 6 km in size. The remarkable thing however about this picture is that we can clearly see waves in Saturn's rings, these waves are caused by the gravity of this tiny moon! Daphnis' orbit is slightly elliptical and slightly tilted so that means that it's sometimes closer to the inner edge of the gap in which it orbits (Keeler Gap). The change is ever so small, only about 9 km, but that's enough to create this beautiful ripple effect.

ISS parts and pieces from a couple of years ago. See today's post @metrolinaszabi for a vey nice high resolution image! 😊 any ISS ground based image where components are discernible is a success for the imager. It is an extremely challenging subject. #iss #nasa #esa #satellite #space #fast #orbit

We met @europeanspaceagency director Josef Aschbacher, who is by the way Austrian at #Audiversum in Innsbruck 😀. Lots of comon interests
