And liftoff! The Soyuz spacecraft launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan to the International Space Station at 4:25 p.m. EDT. NASA astronaut Butch Wilmore and Russian cosmonauts Alexander Samokutyaev and Elena Serova now are safely in orbit. Wilmore, Samokutyaev and Serova will dock with the station's Poisk module at 10:15 p.m. later today. More: http://go.nasa.gov/1pf9PEn

NASA'S STEREO (Behind) satellite captured this magnificent coronal mass ejection (associated with an M-class flare) that flung a long stream of plasma into space (Aug. 24, 2014). We have combined a view of the Sun in extreme UV light with a broader visible light view of the Sun's corona. It is interesting to note that a lot of the plasma, lacking sufficient kinetic energy to break free from the Sun's gravity, was pulled back into the Sun.

Kennedy Space Center's quiet rebirth slowly taking shape

Kennedy Space Center is relatively quiet these days, but there's a rebirth taking shape in the historic buildings and grounds. The new Orion and SLS programs, and renovations of buildings like the massive VAB, are transforming the space program and Central Florida.

A perigree full moon or supermoon is seen over the Old Post Office and Clock Tower, Sunday, August 10, 2014, in Washington. A supermoon occurs when the moon’s orbit is closest (perigee) to Earth at the same time it is full.

Beautiful video capture of our Sun.

A long arch of plasma (called a prominence) was pulled this way and that by magnetic forces for a week before it finally dissipated (July 10-16, 2014). This close up was captured in extreme ultraviolet light. The Earth scale in the lower left corner gives one a sense of the length of the prominence. This one held itself together for quite a long time, as these things go.

NASA History

The Mercury-Redstone 4 mission launched on July 21, 1961 at 7:20 a.m. The mission, which was the second suborbital spaceflight conducted by the United States, was piloted by NASA astronaut Gus Grissom in his Liberty Bell 7 capsule. Everything went according to plan until the splashdown in the Atlantic Ocean when the hatch cover accidentally blew. The capsule was successfully retrieved almost 38 years to the day on July 20, 1999.
