In April 837, Halley's comet made its closest known approach to Earth at 3.07 million miles away! Halley has been documented in art & science for thousands of years; the comet was even featured in the Bayeux Tapestry, which chronicles the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

April 2019: Scientists released first-ever image of black hole! Captured by an international network of radio telescopes called the Event Horizon Telescope, the black hole in the image lies in the center of Messier 87, about 55 million light-years away from Earth. #BlackHoleWeek https://t.co/HRWplWA5iK

It's engine-ious... #OTD in 1965, @NASA_Marshall tested all 5 of the F-1 engines that made up the S-IC stage of the Saturn V! Each F-1 engine weighed over 9 tons, generated 1.5 million pounds of thrust, and had a potential energy output equal to the power of 85 Hoover dams. https://t.co/gV8KCfZYSQ

I like that space station. That is a nice space station. #OTD in 2002, Mission Control woke up the STS-110 crew with “All Star,” performed by Smash Mouth (@smashmouth) from the Shrek movie soundtrack. The song was chosen for astronaut Rex Walheim by his two children. https://t.co/ZcADpCpNAB

Never too mach of a good thing! April 1960: Legendary test pilot Major General Robert White flew NASA's X-15 for the first time. White would be the first pilot to fly to Mach 4, 5, and 6 (four, five, and six times the speed of sound), all in the X-15! https://t.co/JxrUNVr9t4

"Houston, we've had a problem." This famous phrase was spoken #OTD after the rupture of a service module oxygen tank. From there, the question became, how do we get Apollo 13 astronauts back to Earth? Experience our "successful failure" in real time: https://t.co/lHa3A8JqcB https://t.co/OhADKBehT0

In honor of the upcoming 60th anniversary of Americans in space, we'll be telling the story of spaceflight through the lens of our mission patches! The NASA tradition to let crews design their own patch began with the crew of Gemini V (patch below). Happy #MissionPatchMonth! https://t.co/fy1ZcFmnYj

“Poyekhali!” (Let's go!) #OTD in 1961, USSR cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human in space after being launched aboard his Vostok 1 spacecraft! His flight began a new era of human spaceflight and escalated the space race. https://t.co/rXy7gGvg6w

#OTD in 1981, the Space Shuttle Columbia launched on the inaugural flight of the Space Shuttle Program! Aboard the spacecraft were John Young and Robert Crippen.

Today we remember Mary Jackson, NASA's first Black female engineer on what would be her 100th birthday! After spending decades as an aeronautical engineer at @NASA_Langley, Mary became the Federal Women’s Program Manager and shaped the next generation of NASA’s female employees. https://t.co/lK7RdrxiS1

April 12 is the International Day of Human Space Flight. 60 years ago, Yuri Gagarin had his first historic flight into the cosmos. As we reflect on his accomplishment today, we look ahead to the future of human space flight as we prepare to send humans back to the Moon. https://t.co/RR0O5wrr9W
