Images of Earth taken by distant NASA spacecraft

Captured from opposite ends of the solar system Friday, two NASA spacecraft turned their cameras on planet Earth, capturing our bright beacon in the black expanse of space.

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft captured the color images of Earth and the moon from its perch in the Saturn system nearly 900 million miles (1.5 billion kilometers) away. MESSENGER, the first probe to orbit Mercury, took a black-and-white image from a distance of 61 million miles (98 million kilometers) as part of a campaign to search for natural satellites of the planet.

In the Cassini images Earth and the moon appear as mere dots — Earth a pale blue and the moon a stark white, visible between Saturn’s rings. It was the first time Cassini’s highest-resolution camera captured Earth and its moon as two distinct objects.

It also marked the first time people on Earth had advance notice their planet’s portrait was being taken from interplanetary distances. NASA invited the public to celebrate by finding Saturn in their part of the sky, waving at the ringed planet and sharing pictures over the Internet. More than 20,000 people around the world participated. […]

Video: Grasshopper reaches new record height.

The reusable rocket from Space X reached a height of 1,066 feet during testing in June, after having a new navigation sensor fitted to assist in landing.

The company hopes to one day use the technology to send paying customers into orbit, and return them safely to the same launch pad.

Moons and some rings of Saturn, photographed by Cassini, 1 June 2004.  Enceladus is the largest moon seen here (the four diffraction spikes from the narrow-angle camera are unusually clear).  Prometheus sneaks into a couple of frames at the end, just inside the F Ring.  Outside the F Ring are the co-orbital moons Janus and Epimetheus, and I’ve chosen the end-point of the gif so that one loops almost seamlessly into the other.

{ooc} I think I kinda really sorta want to get back here unu
