Near, far, wherever you are... @NASAHubble will get the shot! 📸
NGC 4907 glows from 270 million light-years away & shining brightly below the galaxy is a star within the Milky Way. This star seems much brighter as it is 100,000 times closer. Read more: https://t.co/rM6wtQOYB4 https://t.co/TSi8zjdpxE
A @NASAJPL team, in collaboration with @EOS_SG, used satellite-derived data to map the likely extent of damage from the Aug. 4 explosion in Beirut. Maps like this one can help identify badly damaged areas where people may need assistance: https://t.co/osF7y1tOQ3 https://t.co/mamSfRGK4Q
