For the first time, a young comet-like object has been spotted near Jupiter’s ancient Trojan asteroids. @NASAHubble captured visible-light snapshots of the object showing signs of comet activity, such as a tail and an enveloping coma of dust and gas.

Rarely do you get do-overs in space exploration. @NASA_Wallops built & extensively tested a 72-ft parachute that could survive inflating in a Mach 2 wind in half a second to land @NASAPersevere safely on Mars. See how they did it:

Quoted @POTUS

On Thursday, I joined the world and watched in awe as the Perseverance Rover touched down on the surface of Mars. It was a remarkable feat — one made possible by the hard work and ingenuity of the team at @NASA.

I called to congratulate them on their historic landing.

Looking forward to welcoming you to our corner of the universe, Mr. President. Until then, we'll keep answering the call to innovate and explore.
