People are able to discover, share and create content that expresses their personality, hobbies, and interests. The NASA Tumblr profile will share information, images, and video about the agency’s missions of exploration and discovery.
Along with the new official NASA Tumblr account, astronaut Peggy Whitson will offer a behind-the-scenes look at an astronaut’s journey as she trains for a six-month mission to the International Space Station.
It takes a NASA Village to train an astronaut, and Whitson’s Tumblr will highlight the many people who make human spaceflight possible.
These two official NASA Tumblr profiles will be joined by two mission accounts. The JunoCam Tumblr will showcase Jupiter images from amateur astronomers and public-processed images from JunoCam on board NASA’s Juno mission. The Curiosity rover will share engineering, science and selfies from the surface of Mars.
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, manages the Juno and Curiosity missions for the agency’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington.
NASA engages and inspires the public by sharing unique content through social media. The agency continues to add new platforms like Tumblr to offer the public a comprehensive view of NASA’s missions, facilities and people.
