Our IMAP mission is a big step closer to launch! A modern-day celestial cartographer, IMAP will chart the heliosphere—the bubble surrounding the solar system—and study how it interacts with space. Next up, the mission’s final design and fabrication phase: https://t.co/GujC1qwuQd

Next up: A rocket with X-ray vision 🚀😎 The Marshall Grazing Incidence X-ray Spectrometer, or MaGIXS, mission will launch as soon as July 30 to view the Sun in X-ray light. Learn more: https://t.co/N9VtoibLgI

Our PUNCH mission is taking the next step towards launch! 🚀 PUNCH will study how the Sun’s outer atmosphere becomes the solar wind, which drives space weather and shapes our solar system. The mission is moving into its final design and fabrication phase: https://t.co/MAhBdwKhlj

Solar eclipses are pretty cool when seen from the ground — but the view from space is awesome too. NASA’s EPIC camera took photos of the June 10 eclipse from about a million miles away. https://t.co/V54LXQPa8m

It’s #SunDay! ☀️ Scientists have discovered a new type of wave on the Sun — huge, slowly oscillating swells caused by the Sun’s rotation. The waves are giving scientists a new window into the solar interior. https://t.co/R9107GNQfC 🎧 Listen to sonified data of the waves.

The @JAXA_en/@NASA Geotail mission launched 29 years ago today! 🚀 Geotail studies how Earth’s magnetic field responds to conditions in space, creating phenomena like the northern & southern lights. https://t.co/w7r8WICDHR

Studying the Sun takes a toll on our spacecraft. Over time, lenses and sensors degrade, and scientists must periodically calibrate instruments to keep data accurate. Now, artificial intelligence offers a new way to keep them constantly calibrated. 🤖 https://t.co/1AA3BIB8gq

Even astronauts living in space need to check the weather forecast! ☔️ Two instrument suites on @NASA_Gateway will monitor the radiation environment near the Moon and help provide space weather forecasts for Artemis astronauts. https://t.co/om5FJpyHUu https://t.co/JxyeYPlzeW

Ever wondered what a solar eclipse would look like from space? On June 10, 2021, NASA’s Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) captured an image of our Moon’s shadow projected onto Earth’s surface during a solar eclipse. ☀️🌑🌍 https://t.co/0cmNJYM1bN

Waves aren’t just for beaches. 🌊🏖 Scientists have discovered giant, slowly oscillating swells in the Sun’s surface — caused by the Sun’s rotation — with data from our Solar Dynamics Observatory. https://t.co/R9107GNQfC 🎧 Sound up to listen to sonified data of the waves.

Solar eruptions typically come in three distinct types — but for the first time, scientists have spotted an eruption that contains elements of all three. This provides scientists with something of a solar Rosetta Stone. https://t.co/xwSI6sAgb4

It's #SunDay! ☀️ Parker Solar Probe is traveling closer to our Sun than any other spacecraft. How exactly can it survive the journey through million degree temperatures? https://t.co/emI5B9xN09

Solar flares, plasma rain, and sunquakes — oh my! The Sun is constantly abuzz with activity and eruptions, some which stays on the surface and some which gets ejected across the solar system. Learn more about different phenomena on the Sun: https://t.co/hrORjfHlD9

As #ParkerSolarProbe gets closer and closer to the Sun, it makes measurements that haven’t been possible from farther away. Scientists are using this data to reveal the Sun’s electric field. ⚡ More from @uiowa. ⬇️ https://t.co/bI9jhHnpX1

Scientists have long predicted that human-driven climate change causes part of Earth’s upper atmosphere to cool and contract, but it has been difficult to observe. Data from three NASA satellites has produced a long-term record that confirms this effect. https://t.co/rdDO9VfSEN

@NASASolarSystem #ParkerSolarProbe goes for gold in spacecraft speed and distance from the Sun! 🥇 This mission has already set new records, reaching 330,000 miles per hour and coming within 6.5 million miles of the Sun. It will eventually top out at 430,000 mph during its final orbits!

The #Tokyo2020 Olympics showcase the fastest *people* on the planet. 🏊‍♂️🚴‍♀️🏃‍♀️But what are the fastest things built *by* people? The #NewHorizonsMission is currently sailing away from the Sun – it's now far past Pluto – at about 31,000 MPH (about 50,000 kilometers per hour)! 1/4

Space is filled with a flow of material called the solar wind, and the upcoming PUNCH mission will study the region where this solar wind escapes the Sun. 🛰☀️💨 Join Goddard @NASASun scientist Dr. Nicholeen Viall tonight (7/20) at 9pm ET to learn more: https://t.co/JtFC6LPaZz

By using #JunoMission data to "listen" to the rain of electrons flowing onto Jupiter from its intensely volcanic moon Io, researchers have found what triggers the powerful radio emissions within the monster planet’s magnetic field. 🔊 Have a listen: https://t.co/42HEZSJmFx

Second rocket ✅🚀 A Black Brant IX sounding rocket launched at 1:56 pm ET carrying the second Dynamo-2 experiment to study the electrical current in Earth’s ionosphere called the dynamo. Dr. Pfaff reported they received great data while flying through the strong dynamo currents.

SCIENCE UPDATE 🔭 Dr. Pfaff has updated us that he's seeing a strong enough dynamo current that we may consider launching around 2 p.m. even without solar activity. Stay tuned for another update closer to a possible launch time. https://t.co/Jj2B2WnKca

LAUNCH SCRUB❗ Today’s launch of the Black Brant IX sounding rocket carrying the second Dynamo-2 experiment has been scrubbed due to low solar activity. The next launch attempt will be tomorrow, July 11, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. EDT. https://t.co/19CoTjzJAC

SCIENCE UPDATE 🔭 Solar activity is still too quiet for a launch attempt for Dynamo-2. We continue to hold the count at T-15 minutes. Dr. Robert Pfaff is looking for high solar activity to create "disturbed" conditions for the atmospheric dynamo. Next science update at 1 pm ET.

Today's launch will be live on YouTube! 📺 We're currently holding the count at T-15 minutes while we wait for the right science conditions to appear. The stream will start ~20 mins before launch if we pick up the count. The window is until 2 pm ET. https://t.co/Jj2B2WnKca
