What does #Apollo45 (the landing of Apollo 11, 45 years ago today) mean to folks like us?


For thousands of generations, people were out exploring. But since Apollo...we've kind of stopped.

It's time to get out there again. Like Armstrong & Aldrin on the Moon, like Lewis & Clark at the Pacific, like Edmund Hillary on Everest or Charles Darwin in the Galapagos or even Christopher Columbus sailing west...let's go boldly where no men, women, or robots have been before, and discover.

New places---from moon caves, to the far side of the Moon, to mountains unclimbed; to the vast expanses of Mars and to the great waters of Europa.

New knowledge. New ideas. New discoveries.

And ourselves.

(Let's go!)

The crew welcomed more than a ton and a half of science, supplies and spacewalking equipment to the International Space Station Wednesday with the arrival of Orbital Sciences’ Cygnus cargo spacecraft. Orbital Sciences' Cygnus cargo spacecraft was installed to the Harmony module of the International Space Station at 8:53 a.m. EDT. The crew will begin unloading science investigations, food and supplies when the hatch between the newly arrived spacecraft and the Harmony module of the space station is opened Thursday. The spacecraft is scheduled to spend about a month attached to the station.

Pictured here is the Cygnus being remotely guided by Mission Control in Houston to Node 2 using the #Canadarm2 This image was shared on Twitter by Astronaut Reid Wiseman earlier this morning.
