The deep ocean is similar to outer space – an alien realm filled with mysteries, darkness and hostile conditions. #ICYMI, in the fourth episode of our “On A Mission” #podcast, we’ll meet astronaut Kathy Sullivan who ventured into the depths of our planet.

#BlackHoleFriday Our retired Spitzer mission found 2 of the most distant black holes ever found. These supermassive black holes are quasars. Their light traveled 13B yrs to reach Earth, which means they formed less than 1B yrs after the birth of the universe.

#BlackHoleFriday Our WISE spacecraft surveys the sky in infrared light & has found tens of millions of massive black holes. These maps reveal changes in disks of gas & dust that gather around the black holes too, which scientists could potentially use to measure cosmic distances.

This #BlackHoleFriday⚫️ we’re highlighting our NuSTAR mission for being skilled at finding hidden supermassive black holes at the center of galaxies, many of which are obscured from view. NuSTAR data could help provide a better count of supermassive black holes in the universe.

This #Thanksgiving, we commemorate @NASAInSight for touching down on Mars #OTD two years ago. Since then, the lander has measured marsquakes, tracked the weather and was the first spacecraft to detect magnetic signals on the surface of the Red Planet.

📸s in order:
1. Orion Nebula by @NASAHubble
2. @NASA's EPOXI showed meaty comet Hartley 2
3. @NASAMars rover Opportunity found a "berry bowl." (Cranberries & hematite form in the presence of H2O.)
4. Gravy-like streaks on this seen by @HiRISE might be caused by seasonal water.

Everyone has unique talents, and our projects do too. Take Cold Atom Lab: it can create the fifth state of matter and was the first facility to do so in orbit.

What’s your unique talent? #UniqueTalentDay

MOXIE, an experimental device on @NASAPersevere, will try to extract oxygen from the CO2-rich Martian air. That could help pave the way for future astronauts to come back home since oxygen is needed to launch rockets. #CountdownToMars

Up, up & away ✈️ (virtually!)
Fly with a NASA pilot and explore Earth’s airspace with JPL and a @uarizona scientist in this new "On A Mission" podcast episode, from wispy clouds high above down to tiny particles that make up air pollution.
