This post is actually a test to see if my followers like astronomy focused pictures. The nebula is the Helix Nebula. The closest major nebula to Earth (700 light years)

I believe this is Gemini 10 docked to an Agena target vehicle. Did you know this mission docked with two Agena spacecraft? Using just their eyes and mathematics, the crew found the dead Gemini 8 Agena spacecraft and docked with it briefly. It was the first time two rendezvous were completed on one mission.

Now days, NASA employs computer artists to design animations and concepts for NASA projects. Before we had the technical ability to do this, NASA hired painters for its concept work. ——————————————————

NASA’s experimental X-38 spacecraft rests under a B-52 wing. The small spacecraft was primarily meant to be an emergency spacecraft aboard the ISS. Today, the <a href="/profile/sierranevcorp" title="@sierranevcorp - @sierranevcorp Instagram Profile - hungram.com">@sierranevcorp</a>  Dream Chaser carries the legacy of this unfortunately cut project.

Two months ago, NASA completed the last test of Orion’s parachute system. The series of test drops over the course of this year demonstrated the system’s ability to operate consistently in normal landing scenarios.

Not sure which mission this Soyuz carried. The photo was taken January of this year. I believe the rocket is in a building at the Vostochny Cosmodrome. Does anyone familiar with Roscosmos know?
