🤓😍❤🚀 IT’S HERE: NASA’s newest mission insignia! Designed for human missions to deep space, the official @NASA identifier for Exploration Mission-1 (EM-1) represents the first uncrewed, integrated flight test of the Deep Space Exploration Systems. The artwork showcases NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, Orion spacecraft, and Exploration Ground Systems (EGS) at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The triangular shape signifies the three main programs and is a classic shape for NASA mission emblems dating back to the shuttle era. The silver highlight surrounding this patch gives nod to the silver Orion spacecraft, including the European Service Module that will be voyaging 40,000 miles past our Earth’s Moon into deep space. The orange rocket and flames represent the firepower of SLS. The setting is the historic Launch Pad 39B. The red and blue mission trajectories encompassing the white full Moon proudly emphasizes the hard work, tradition, and dedication of this American led-mission while also embracing NASA’s international partnership with the European Space Agency as both agencies forge a new future in space.

It’s only a factory that builds rockets, that launch Teslas, turn back around to land, and deliver cargo to the International Space Station. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

F-16 going in for a nose dive. This is honestly the best picture I’ve seen of an F-16 which was taken by @vador_pictures. Double tap & like if you agree👍👆👆

Was gonna post this yesterday, but kinda glad I didn’t. This would be the ULA Atlas V rocket that is supposed to deliver a SBIRS satellite into orbit. The launch was scrubbed yesterday due to technical issues, but should liftoff tonight at 7:52 PM ET.

This is probably the weirdest looking missile I’ve seen. Although, the Boeing X-51’s design is for aerodynamic purposes, which can travel up to mach 5.1 (~3,300 mph). It’s also about 25ft long which launches from underneath a B-52 at 50,000 ft. Wouldn’t ever wanna be the target for this thing 😳💥🇺🇸🇺🇸

Outside the ISS, temperatures can go from 250 degrees Fahrenheit on the sunny side to -250 on the dark side. Right now with 25 degree weather, I think I’d like to be on that sunny side. 👍😄💯🛰

This man ain’t American, but he’s a pretty cool guy. Seen in the pic is @colchrishadfield aboard the ISS. He is now retired, but is one of the most well known astronauts as well as one of my favorite. His popularity grew with his music video, “Space Oddity” which can be found on Youtube.
