This week, NASA continued its spread into the social media sphere by announcing two new accounts — one on Giphy and one on Pinterest. Seeing as how I had forgotten of Pinterest’s existence, half of this announcement matters very little to me. But the other half is very critical to my interests!
It’s a brilliant move on NASA’s part, because sometimes astronauts, rockets, and artistic renderings of space are the only ways to truly express your feels. And as someone who writes about space and who communicates primarily with moving images that last just a few seconds in length, a NASA Giphy account is basically an entire dictionary for me. Plus, I haven’t yet mastered making my own GIFs with GIF Brewery, so this makes life a whole lot easier.
Here are a few examples of ways to express your feels with NASA GIFs, submitted to you by The Verge staff.
