January 1978: NASA announced 35 new astronaut candidates! This class, otherwise known as the "Thirty-Five New Guys," included a number of milestones; it was the first to include women, African Americans, and Asian Americans in the program. https://t.co/PKSMjyrQKm

Is it a bird? No! A plane? Yes! It’s the first non-stop, around-the-world jet flight! The first jets to circle the earth were three B-52Bs that landed in California #OTD in 1957. The jets were refueled mid-flight and flew for 45 hours and 19 minutes. Image: @usairforce https://t.co/70O7pfhKgk

#HappyBirthday to astronaut Jeff Williams (@Astro_Jeff), who is 63 today! Williams has logged more than 534 days in space including 32 hours in spacewalks, and 3,100 hours in more than 50 different aircraft. Wishing this astronaut many more rotations around the sun. ☀️ 🚀 https://t.co/w7kA0GcblC

#OTD in 2006, NASA's probe Stardust returned comet and intersteller dust samples to Earth, completing the first deep-space sample-return mission. Stardust returned particles from the Comet Wild-2 and is likely to have collected particles originating beyond our solar system. https://t.co/tTZhS6JULc

#OTD in 2005, the @ESA's Huygens probe landed on Saturn's moon, Titan, after its release from @CassiniSaturn. Huygens is the only spacecraft to have soft-landed in the outer solar system and holds the record for the most distant landing from Earth. https://t.co/HPGd7Qh6Eg

Happy #birthday to Astronaut Shannon Lucid, born #OTD in 1943. In 1996, she spent 188 days in space mostly aboard the space station Mir, at the time breaking the record for longest spaceflight by an American. She's pictured here exercising on Mir's treadmill. https://t.co/68IQ4PoYgL

#OTD in 2016, NASA's Juno spacecraft, en route to Jupiter, became humanity's most distant solar-powered spacecraft, about 493 million miles (793 million kilometers) from the sun. The record was previously held by the @esa's Rosetta spacecraft, which had visited a comet in 2012. https://t.co/DFGlEIwbFN

On this day in 2000, the SOHO spacecraft captured this large, twirling solar prominence. Prominences are huge clouds of relatively cool, dense plasma suspended in the Sun’s hot, thin corona. They can sometimes erupt and escape the Sun’s atmosphere. https://t.co/a1QQeCxXOp

A new blog analyzes image composites of two flyby views of Mercury from the MESSENGER spacecraft and other data. Could it be that the planet has not cooled and shrunken as much as previously thought? Read now: https://t.co/imrcJDX6Ol https://t.co/Smz2v60DR3

Whoa... much better. A flaw in Hubble's mirror meant that the telescope first looked to the universe with blurry vision. But #OTD in 1994, @NASA announced that new optics installed during the first servicing mission to Hubble had solved the problem: https://t.co/T5dJnKu7aK https://t.co/GZOUVxGPks
