Congrats, Peggy! Flight Director Brian Smith, Capcom astronaut Jessica Meir along with astronaut Jeff Williams monitor activities in Mission Control as President Donald Trump, First Daughter Ivanka Trump and NASA astronaut Kate Rubins make a special Earth-to-space call from the Oval Office to personally congratulate NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson for her record-breaking stay aboard the International Space Station (@ISS). Whitson officially set the U.S. record for most cumulative days in space. She is the first woman to command the space station twice, and holds the record for most spacewalks conducted by a female astronaut.

The CERES kit that was used to grow plants in Europe's space lab Columbus! It was very exciting to take part in CNES and ESA's education programme that saw me running the same experiment as hundreds of schoolchildren on Earth. CERES saw us grow radishes, mustard and lentil seeds in the same environment except up here the seeds were weightless. This experiment was aimed at kids but is very similar to many experiments ran on the International Space Station: running the same protocol on Earth and in space to compare the differences and learn about the underlying effects.

Le kit CERES qui m’a servi à faire pousser des plantes dans le laboratoire européen Colombus, pendant que des centaines de jeunes du primaire au lycée participaient à la même expérience sur Terre. Au programme de cette coopération entre le CNES et l’ESA : radis et graines de moutarde et de lentilles. L’activité a eu beau s’adresser à des jeunes, elle ressemble sur le principe à de nombreuses expériences menées quotidiennement sur la Station et dont le protocole demande un suivi simultané entre la Terre et l’espace, pour révéler les phénomènes masqués par la gravité.

See that dot between #Saturn's rings? “Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives." - Carl Sagan. 👐☄🌍 #perspective
This #new image from the international Cassini #mission shows planet Earth as a point of light between the icy #rings of #Saturn.
The #spacecraft captured its last view of Earth on 12 April 2017, 1.4 billion km away. Although far too small to be visible in the image, the part of Earth facing Cassini at the time was the southern Atlantic Ocean.

The low angle of the sun over moon Tethys' massive canyon, Ithaca Chasma, highlights the contours of the rift in this photo by @NASA’s #Cassini mission. Ithaca Chasma is up to 60 miles (100 kilometers) wide, and runs nearly three-fourths of the way around icy Tethys (660 miles or 1,062 kilometers across). The canyon has a maximum depth of nearly 2.4 miles (4 kilometers) deep. The giant crater Odysseus -- usually one of Tethys’ most recognizable features-- is barely seen in profile along the limb, at upper left. This view looks toward the Saturn-facing hemisphere of Tethys. North on Tethys is up and rotated 5 degrees to the left. The image was taken in green light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Jan. 30, 2017. The view was obtained at a distance of approximately 221,000 miles (356,000 kilometers) from Tethys. Image scale is 1 mile (2 kilometers) per pixel. #rift #space #moon #solarsystem #Saturn #NASA #JPL #NASAbeyond
