NASA releases 60-second video celebrating its 60th anniversary

  NASA releases 60-second video celebrating its 60th anniversary NASA's "60 Years in 60 Seconds" covers many of the highlights from its decades in existence . The images and video clips fly by fast and furiously, from astronaut John Glenn climbing into the Mercury Friendship 7 capsule in 1962 to a vivid view of Mars where NASA has sent several rovers over the years.In honor of our #NASA60th anniversary, we identified the 60 most important moments that laid the groundwork for our current programs and future endeavors. Take a look back through the decades with this timeline:https://t.co/MFIsZ6aSRVpic.twitter.

Teaming up with the European Space agency, NASA shot the first of its kind, 8 K ultra high definition video (UHD) from the International Space Station.

Those views beamed to Earth from outer space are starting to look a lot more spectacular.

NASA released the first 8K video from space, capturing astronauts aboard the International Space Station as they live, work, and perform research.

The 8K camera can shoot at resolutions ranging from a conventional high-definition TV to up to 8K, which is four times better video quality over 4K.

The RED brand camera used on the ISS is similar to ones used on Hollywood films including "The Hobbit" trilogy and "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2."

NASA says Voyager 2 may be nearing interstellar space

  NASA says Voyager 2 may be nearing interstellar space Voyager 1 could soon welcome its twin to the space outside our solar system.Voyager 2 has been traveling through the heliosheath, the outermost layer of the heliosphere, for over a decade. NASA describes the heliosphere as a "vast bubble around the Sun and the planets dominated by solar material and magnetic fields.

Science gets scaled up with the first 8 K ultra high definition (UHD) video from the International Space Station. Get closer to the in- space experience and

NASA and the European Space Agency have teamed up on a new video about astronauts in the International Space Station. But this one is a little different than the videos you've watched in the past because it's the first 8 K ultra high definition video delivered by the agencies, shot with a Helium.

"We’re excited to embrace new technology that improves our ability to engage our audiences in space station research,” said David Brady, assistant program scientist for the International Space Station Program Science Office, in a statement.

To get the full experience, users must watch the video on a computer monitor or screen that supports 8K videos. However, NASA says even if you don't have an 8K screen, the video will still support a higher-quality playback compared to videos in lower resolutions.

NASA is collecting space dirt from an asteroid that could kill us all.
The Bennu asteroid could show us the origins of the solar system, or it could be the death of us all. Either way, NASA's OSIRIS-REx is going to touch it to find out.
