And I think it's gonna be a long long time
'Till touch down brings me round again to find
I'm not the man they think I am at home
Oh no no no I'm a rocket man 🚀

On the outskirts of the Rosette Nebula
This interesting region lies on the outskirts of the Rosette nebula. I couldn't find any catalog references specific to this structure if you know one let me know!
We’re always inspired by women in history! Born May 26, 1951, in Los Angeles. Sally Ride attended Stanford University, earning her bachelors degree in English and Physics. At Stanford, she also earned a master’s degree in 1975 and a PhD in Physics in 1978. Ride was the very first American Woman in space and third women in space overall, after USSR cosmonauts Valentina Tereshkova (1963) and Svetlana Savitskaya (1982). Ride remains the youngest American astronaut to have ever traveled to space, having done so at the age of 32 after flying twice on the Orbiter Challenger. 🚀

From growing up on Indian reservations in Texas to flying in space, we want to wish a happy birthday to history maker Dr. Bernard Harris, Jr. (June 26, 1956). Harris is a veteran of 2 shuttle missions, logging over 438 hours of spaceflight and a spacewalk lasting over 4 hours. In 1995 he became the FIRST African American to walk in space.
After leaving @nasa in 1996, Harris led various companies with scientific and educational missions. In 1998 he founded the Harris Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports math and science education as well as crime prevention for America’s youth. He has served on numerous boards and commissions, received honorary doctorates from multiple institutions, received the NASA Space Flight Medal, and a NASA Award of Merit.
Harris exemplifies what it means to be a community leader and the unlimited potential we all have, regardless of upbringing. Set a goal, stay focused, and keep grinding. #4thmvmt
