Another post, another awesome gif from NASA!! This gif (made by CauseScience) shows the aurora borealis in the sky as the sun rises, ending with the two light sources ‘touching’!! The video this gif was made from was taken from the International Space Station – #sunrise touches #aurora.

Update: The gif CauseScience made from the youtube video is not nearly as good as the vine posted by @Space_Station![tweet https://twitter.com/Space_Station/status/563069569078927362]
If you missed the SpaceX/NASA rocket launch that included an attempted landing of the first stage rocket on a drone ship, here’s the spectacular video of the amazing, but not entirely successful landing.

Newsweek has great article about Reid Wiseman and his amazing presence on social media from the International Space Station. For CauseScience readers this shouldn’t be a surprise since a lot of CauseScience posts have featured @astro_reid! Reid Wiseman has now returned to earth after 6 months in orbit, but hopefully he’ll continue posting about space and life in space! Check out the great article.
