A very beautiful photo of Earth and Moon as seen through Saturn’s rings – an image taken by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft on April 13, 2017.
On December 27, 2019, Buzz Aldrin, one of the first two humans to land on the Moon, published the famous photo of himself standing on the lunar soil, saying:
Do you remember when did you see a sky full of stars last? It’s been many years for me, I even can’t remember when I saw last. A lot of young people didn’t see even once, because of the light pollution in cities, since they were born in cities and probably never went to the […]

Animals are amazing. NASA Astronaut Christina Koch published a short video on her Twiter account (@Astro_Christina) showing her dog’s reaction to her returning home from space after a record-breaking duration.
NASA has digitally reprocessed probably the most iconic photo of Earth from space – the “Pale Blue Dot” to celebrate the photograph’s 30th anniversary.
Once (almost) every four years, we have a “leap year” which has 366 days instead of 365. Why it is like that? Why we have leap years? JAXA (Former NASA Goddard) Planetary scientist Dr. James O’Donoghue (@physicsJ) explains why we have leap years in his latest video.
The Japanese Space Agency (JAXA) and former NASA Goddard Planetary scientist Dr. James O’Donoghue (@physicsJ) created another amazing video. He showed that what if we slowly drain the Earth’s oceans and see the two-thirds of Earth’s surface (that is currently under the oceans) we don’t get to see. In other words, how our planet would […]
NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) for February 1, 2020: a crescent Earth rising over the Moon, seen from Apollo 14 on February 6, 1971. This photo is not as famous as the Apollo 8 Earthrise, or the Blue Marble, but it has such an eerie beauty.
