🥬 Did you know there's a garden on the @Space_Station? During his mission, @Astro_illini has harvested radishes, planted lettuce, & begun growing mustard greens and pak choi. The plants are a source of food, and a connection reminding the crew of Earth:

😎 New shades, new me!

@NASARoman will now be able to explore more cosmic questions, thanks to a fresh new near-infrared filter that will allow the observatory to see longer wavelengths of light & collaborate with @NASAHubble & @NASAWebb. Here's how:

Look for Mars near the Pleiades cluster high in the west after sunset, and then spot Jupiter and Saturn re-emerging as a bright pair in the pre-dawn sky.

Here's what to spot in the sky this March:
