— Meghan Bartels, Thursday, April 9, 2020: A Russian Soyuz rocket soars toward the International Space Station with three Expedition 63 crewmembers after lifting off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan today (April 9) at 4:05 a.m. EDT (0805 GMT or 1:05 p.m. local Kazakh time). The telescope pictured here is one of four small auxiliary telescopes for ESO's Very Large Telescope array. While galaxies like this don't contain as many stars as their brighter counterparts, they are rich with dark matter. — Hanneke Weitering, Monday, January 27, 2020: The barred spiral galaxy NGC 1022 flaunts its tendrils of dark, red dust in this new view from the Hubble Space Telescope. For comparison, the International Space Station orbits at an average altitude of 250 miles (400 km). — Meghan Bartels, Monday, April 13, 2020: On April 10, the European-Japanese spacecraft BepiColombo conducted a flyby of Earth, which slowed the probe's speed enough to turn its trajectory toward the inner solar system. June 30, 2020: NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy snapped this photo of SpaceX's Crew Dragon vehicle docked with the International Space Station and with Earth's curvature in the background during a spacewalk with Bob Behnken on Friday, June 26, 2020. But while the Milky Way has four distinct spiral arms that wrap around its galactic core, NGC 3583 has two long arms that twist out into the universe. To spot the faint feature, look for the swirling arms emerging from both ends. Three weeks from now, three new space station crewmembers are scheduled to launch from Kazakhstan to the orbiting laboratory. Friday, February 28, 2020: The European Space Agency's Qarman cubesat deploys from the International Space Station on a mission to burn up in Earth's atmosphere to study the physics of its own fiery reentry. — Hanneke Weitering, Tuesday, February 19, 2019: The full "Snow Moon" looms above Earth's fluffy cloud tops in this photo taken from the International Space Station on Feb. 12, 2016. 80 102 7. Located on a rocky mountaintop in the Atacama Desert, VISTA is the world's largest telescope built to survey the sky in near-infrared light. Read our full coverage here. Hague and Ovchinin initially tried to launch to the station in October 2018, but their rocket failed and they experienced a harrowing emergency abort. — Hanneke Weitering, Wednesday, April 10, 2019: Earth's reflection looks like a beautiful "blue marble" on the visor of Canadian Space Agency astronaut David Saint-Jacques, who took this selfie during a spacewalk outside the International Space Station on April 8. Cassidy and Behnken stepped out for a spacewalk in which they replaced aging nickel-hydrogen batteries on the space station with brand new lithium-ion batteries. — Hanneke Weitering, Friday, July 5, 2019: Details of the sun's brilliant corona come to light during the total solar eclipse of July 2 in this composite of polarized images captured from the European Southern Observatory's La Silla Observatory in Chile. It's known as the Great Barred Spiral Galaxy. The small satellite, named TechEdSat-8, deployed on Thursday (Jan. 31) on a mission to test a new technology called "exo-braking," which would allow science payloads to return to Earth inside a cubesat. — Hanneke Weitering, Tuesday, October 15, 2019: A mysterious bird and its seemingly huge talons photobomb an all-sky camera's view of the cosmos in this lucky shot from the La Silla Observatory in Chile. The antenna is located in Western Australia, and provides routine support to missions orbiting Mars, the Gaia Observatory and Europe's first mission to Mercury, BepiColombo. She wore a red-striped spacesuit and actually took this picture! A portion of the space station's solar array is visible in the top left corner of the image. He captured the photo during the peaks of two dueling meteor showers, the Southern Delta Aquariids and the Alpha Capricornids on July 29. The typhoon has led to seven million people being ordered to evacuate and, after hitting Japan it reached the Korean peninsula. However, this strange vortex doesn't behave in the same way as our Earthly hurricanes, with its cloudy rings rising 20 to 45 miles (30-75 km) above the storm's center. You can explore the full-resolution image up close here. Koch shared the image on May 24, 2019, about a week after it was taken. Sept. 29, 2020: NASA astronaut Kate Rubins and Roscosmos cosmonauts Sergey Kud-Sverchkov and Sergey Ryzhikov are the three astronauts set to launch Oct. 14 to the International Space Station as part of Expedition 64. — Hanneke Weitering, Thursday, February 27, 2020: The night sky above the Paranal Observatory in Chile is ablaze with vibrant airglow in this gorgeous view by astrophotographer Yuri Beletsky. Although the temperature in Chile was more bearable than it was for many eclipse photographers facing a cold front in the U.S., Beletsky said he struggled with thick cloud coverage throughout his shoot. — Hanneke Weitering, Friday, April 12, 2019: The two side boosters on SpaceX's Falcon Heavy rocket stick a simultaneous upright landing at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida following the launch of the Saudi Arabian communications satellite Arabsat-6A on Thursday (April 11). Monday, January 7, 2019: A look at SpaceX's first Crew Dragon spacecraft attached to its Falcon 9 rocket as both sit inside their hangar at Launch Pad 39A of NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida in January 2019.
