Top 10 Goalkeeper Assists

45th Anniversary of 'Earthrise' Image: Forty-five years ago, in December of 1968, the Apollo 8 crew flew from the Earth to the Moon and back again. Frank Borman, James Lovell, and William Anders were launched atop a Saturn V rocket on Dec. 21, circled the Moon ten times in their command module, and returned to Earth on Dec. 27. The Apollo 8 mission's impressive list of firsts includes: the first humans to journey to the Earth's Moon, the first to fly using the Saturn V rocket, and the first to photograph the Earth from deep space. As the Apollo 8 command module rounded the far side of the Moon on Dec. 24, the crew could look toward the lunar horizon and see the Earth appear to rise, due to their spacecraft's orbital motion. Their famous picture of a distant blue Earth above the Moon's limb was a marvelous gift to the world. Image Credit

On Dec. 24, 2013, NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins, Expedition 38 Flight Engineer, participates in the second of two U.S. spacewalks, spread over a four-day period, which were designed to allow the crew to change out a faulty water pump on the exterior of the Earth-orbiting International Space Station. He was joined on both spacewalks by NASA astronaut Rick Mastracchio, whose image shows up in Hopkins' helmet visor. Today, Dec. 27, 2013, Expedition 38 Commander Oleg Kotov and Flight Engineer Sergey Ryazanskiy of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) have ventured outside the orbiting outpost to install a pair of high fidelity cameras on a platform attached to the Zvezda Service Module as part of a commercial arrangement between Roscosmos and a Canadian company to downlink Earth observation imagery. This is the last of six Russian spacewalks planned for this year. Image Credit

Aboard the International Space Station, Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata ‏tweeted this image from @Astro_Wakata. His post read, "Flying over US east coast.” The six-member Expedition 38 crew wrapped up last week with more biomedical work. The international space residents also continued ongoing microgravity research, inventoried gear from a new space freighter and trained for the upcoming Cygnus release. Flight Engineers Mike Hopkins and Wakata are also getting ready for Tuesday’s farewell to Orbital Sciences’ Cygnus commercial cargo craft berthed to the Harmony node. The pair teamed up again to train for the robotics work necessary for Cygnus’ grapple then release with the Canadarm2. Cygnus is planned to be released Tuesday at 6:40 a.m. EST. Hopkins and Wakata will be in the cupola grappling then releasing the Cygnus with the Canadarm2. Watch the activities on NASA TV beginning at 6 a.m. EST Tuesday. CREDIT

Japanese Astronaut Koichi Wakata tweeted this image of the moon setting on the blue Earth atmosphere on Friday. The Expedition 38 crew of the International Space Station wrapped up a workweek packed with science research and the completion of a U.S. cargo spacecraft’s first commercial resupply mission to the orbiting outpost.

Tonight, #Gravity is up for awards at the #Oscars2014 & we're sharing #RealGravity images from living & working in space. First up is this stunning picture where the bright sun greets the International Space Station in this Nov. 22, 2009 scene from the Russian section of the orbital outpost. Image credit

More #RealGravity images tonight as #Gravity is up for awards at the #Oscars2014: This unique photographic angle, features the International Space Station's Cupola and crew activity inside it, other hardware belonging to the station, city lights on Earth and airglow. It was captured by one of the Expedition 28 crew members. The major urban area on the coast is Brisbane, Australia. The station was passing over an area southwest of Canberra. Image credit

Congrats on another win at #Oscars2014 #Gravity for cinematography. Here's the #RealGravity: Earths horizon against the blackness of space is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 7 crewmember onboard the International Space Station on October 4, 2003. Image Credit

More #RealGravity images tonight as #Gravity is up for awards at the #Oscars2014: One of the Expedition 36 crew members aboard the International Space Station used a 50mm lens to record this image of a large mass of storm clouds over the Atlantic Ocean near Brazil and the Equator on July 4, 2013. A Russian spacecraft, docked to the orbiting outpost, partially covers a small patch of sunglint on the ocean waters in a break in the clouds. Image Credit

More #RealGravity images tonight as #Gravity picks up awards at the #Oscars2014: The thin line of Earth's atmosphere and the setting sun are featured in this image photographed on Nov. 23, 2009 by a crew member on the International Space Station while space shuttle Atlantis was docked with the station.

Space Station Sensor to Capture 'Striking' Lightning Data - Our researchers developed the Lightning Imaging Sensor (LIS) aboard the TRMM satellite, which detects and locates lightning over the tropical region of the globe. The team that created this hardware in the mid-1990s built a spare, which is scheduled to launch to the International Space Station in February 2016 in order to take advantage of the orbiting laboratory’s high inclination. LIS measures the amount, rate and radiant energy of global lightning, providing storm-scale resolution, millisecond timing, and high, uniform-detection efficiency -- and it does this without land-ocean bias. One of the crew members aboard the International Space Station photographed this night view of storm clouds over Southern California. Early morning lightning can be seen as a white blotch just to the right of center. The yellow colored area, beneath the grey clouds, which almost shines because of night lights, is part of the highly populated area of Los Angeles and San Diego. Image Credit

Join us as we share our missions & images that appear on the #Cosmos premiere. To tease: the Ring Nebula This planetary nebula's simple, graceful appearance is thought to be due to perspective: our view from Earth looking straight into what is actually a barrel-shaped cloud of gas shrugged off by a dying central star. Hot blue gas near the energizing central star gives way to progressively cooler green and yellow gas at greater distances with the coolest red gas along the outer boundary.

As seen on #Cosmos tonight: A 'Blue Marble' image of the Earth taken from the VIIRS instrument aboard NASA's most recently launched Earth-observing satellite - Suomi NPP. This composite image uses a number of swaths of the Earth's surface taken on January 4, 2012. Suomi NPP is NASA's next Earth-observing research satellite. It is the first of a new generation of satellites that will observe many facets of our changing Earth.
