The Universe MUST have a sense of irony, else why are so many things at their most beautiful when they die?

Spent the evening at JPL as the last ever commands were sent to the Opportunity rover on . 💔 There was silence. There were tears. There were hugs. There were memories and laughs shared.

After the Earth formed, the core, mantle, and crust started to differentiate. All the heavy elements including precious metals like gold sunk down into the core. The precious metals we mine in the crust today are likely from meteor impacts, and not from Earth's initial formation.

This is *fantastic* news. For just one thing, Captain Kelly respects science. As an astronaut, his life depended on it perhaps more than most. But he knows that we *all* depend on it, and for that reason alone I’d support him.

👋 There it goes! A new image sequence shows the last views of Kuiper Belt object from our New Horizons spacecraft as it zoomed past: (Don't worry, we looped it, so you can watch this oddly-shaped space rock over and over and over.)

Beautiful ISS lunar transit today afternoon at 16:43. Got really lucky with clouds, it was a gamble though, kind of racing with clouds. Took enough videos for lunar mosaic picture as well.

Need a total perspective shakeup? That’s the far side of the Moon and the Earth seen *in a single shot* by a Chinese lunar satellite. Yeah.
