NASA joins Tumblr to deliver 'a regular dose of space'

Share this story


Along with exploring the known universe, NASA is also continuing its expansion into the social media universe. The space agency will now be posting its exploits to Tumblr across four new accounts. The main account will share images and video of NASA's work, while two of the other new pages will focus on specific missions. One page will be dedicated for the Mars Curiosity rover's updates, and another will follow astronaut Peggy Wilson as she trains for a six-month mission on the International Space Station.

NASA says it wants to give people a "regular dose of space," and its inaugural post showcases the incredible GIF of the Moon photobombing Earth. The agency has embraced social media for releasing news and updates about its space endeavors; it often encourages the public to participate on Twitter, and recently released one of the first high-resolution images of Pluto on Instagram.
