At this point this is sort of a recap, but here is a playlist of the NASA New Horizons “Pluto in a Minute” series hosted by Amy Shira Teitel. Her energy is infectious and I would love to see NASA continue to employ her as the public envoy of ALL future endeavors. Enjoy!

ISS HD Earth Viewing Experiment
A breathtaking LIVE view of Earth from the ISS in HD!
It’s been up and down. I think they’re still working the bugs out. Read about the project at NASA – High Definition Earth Viewing (HDEV).
What does it feel like to fly over planet Earth?

This is crazy. I recommend you watch it full-screen in 1080p!
Decommissioning Discovery 360VR
I stumbled upon this fantastic 360VR image taken on the flight deck of the space shuttle Discovery during its decommissioning in the Orbiter Processing Facility (now the new “Employee Lounge” for those still with jobs).
The official decommission date of Discovery was listed as March 9, 2011. By its last mission, Discovery had flown 148 million miles (238 million km) in 39 missions, completed 5,830 orbits, and spent 365 days in orbit in over 27 years. Discovery flew more flights than any other orbiter in the fleet. Discovery’s final flight was February 24, 2011.
Discovery will replace Enterprise in the Smithsonian’s display at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Virginia.
