La NASA está en Instagram y estas son sus más espectaculares imágenes

Las posibilidades que nos ha brindado Instagram desde su aparición han sido muchas y de lo más variadas. Sin embargo creo que ninguna persona habría apostado por que la NASA terminara creándose allí también una cuenta en donde pudiéramos comenzar a ver muchas de sus asombrosas fotografías.

Las imágenes que han subido van desde cohetes despegando a fotos de otros planetas y la Tierra desde lejos.

Recuerda que siempre puedes seguirlos para estar al tanto de las imágenes nuevas que van subiendo (y que también puedes seguirnos a nosotros).

[Artist Concept] With two suns in its sky, Luke Skywalker's home planet Tatooine in "Star Wars" looks like a parched, sandy desert world. In real life, thanks to observatories such as NASA's Kepler space telescope, we know that two-star systems can indeed support planets, although planets discovered so far around double-star systems are large and gaseous. Scientists wondered: If an Earth-size planet were orbiting two suns, could it support life? It turns out, such a planet could be quite hospitable if located at the right distance from its two stars, and wouldn't necessarily even have deserts. In a particular range of distances from two sun-like host stars, a planet covered in water would remain habitable and retain its water for a long time, according to a new study in the journal Nature Communications. This artist's concept shows a hypothetical planet covered in water around the binary star system of Kepler-35A and B.

We once thought oceans made our planet unique, but we’re now coming to realize that #OceanWorlds are all around us. Today we announced discoveries about two moons inside our solar system. Saturn's moon Enceladus & Jupiter's moon Europa have been identified as #OceanWorlds with "some of the ingredients needed for a habitable environment," based upon new findings from our Cassini spacecraft and the Hubble Space Telescope. This illustration shows Cassini diving through the Enceladus plume in 2015. New ocean world discoveries from Cassini and Hubble will help inform future exploration and the broader search for life beyond Earth.

Returning to Earth: The Soyuz spacecraft is seen as it lands with International Space Station crew members NASA astronaut Kate Rubins, Russian cosmonaut Anatoly Ivanishin of Roscosmos, and astronaut Takuya Onishi of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) near the town of Zhezkazgan, Kazakhstan, at 11:58 p.m. EDT Saturday. Rubins, Ivanishin, and Onishi are returning after 115 days in space where they served as members of the Expedition 48 and 49 crews onboard the atation. During her time on the orbiting complex, Rubins ventured outside the confines of the station for two spacewalks. During the first one on Aug. 19, she and NASA astronaut Jeff Williams installed the first international docking adapter. Outfitted with a host of sensors and systems, the adapter's main purpose is to provide a port for spacecraft bringing astronauts to the station in the future. Its first users are expected to be the Boeing Starliner and SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft now in development in partnership with NASA's Commercial Crew Program. During her second spacewalk Sept. 1, Rubins and Williams retracted a spare thermal control radiator and installed two new high-definition cameras.

Lift off! NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough and two Russians launched to the International Space Station (@ISS) from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan at 4:05 a.m. EDT Wednesday (2:05 p.m. Baikonur time). The crew members will spend a little over four months conducting more than 250 science investigations in fields such as biology, Earth science, human research, physical sciences and technology development. For more than 15 years, humans have been living continuously aboard the space station to advance scientific knowledge and demonstrate new technologies, making research breakthroughs not possible on Earth that also will enable long-duration human and robotic exploration into deep space. A truly global endeavor, more than 200 people from 18 countries have visited the unique microgravity laboratory that has hosted more than 1,900 research investigations from researchers in more than 95 countries.

Today is #FlagDay, commemorating the adoption of the United States flag, which took place on June 14, 1777. Seen here is the American flag in one of the windows of the International Space Station's (@iss) cupola, a dome-shaped module through which operations on the outside of the station can be observed and guided. Astronaut Jack Fischer took this photograph and shared it on social media. Throughout NASA's history, spacecraft and launch vehicles have always been decorated with flags. When Ed White became the first American astronaut to perform a spacewalk on June 3, 1965, his spacesuit was one of the first to be adorned with a flag patch. White's crewmate Jim McDivitt also wore a flag on his suit. The astronauts purchased the flags themselves, but following their flight, NASA made the flag patch a regular feature on the spacesuits. NASA astronauts still wear them today. Image Credit: NASA #nasa #flag #usflag #flagday #space #spacestation #starsandstripes #iss #earth #cupola

¿Qué opinión tienes acerca de las fotografías? ¿Te asombran tanto como a nosotros?

En lo personal me alegra mucho que la NASA publique sus fotografías en Instagram acercándose tanto a las personas.
