Look to the Stars with these 11 Great Space Social Media Feeds

Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 12.03.59 PM Don’t worry Pluto, we didn’t forget about you! This week, NASA’s New Horizons Spacecraft sent pictures of the dwarf planet with never before seen detail. For those of you who love staring up at the night sky, our Cosmos collection is perfect for you.

With breathtaking pictures of our solar system (like the one above by mikkolagerstedt), videos from inside NASA, and astronauts just fooling around, these feeds will surely invigorate your inner space cadet!


What better place to start this list off than the government agency that handles all of our space exploration? NASA obviously gets the best images of space and their feed reflects that.

Scott Kelly

Scott Kelly is currently the commander of the International Space Station and the commander of #selfiesunday in space. His feed also includes some of the most incredible pictures of our planet from the ISS with the #earthart.

International Space Station

From the commander to the station itself. The International Space Station’s feed shows a bit more of the technical side of the Expedition, but also represents the cooperation of 15 nations on one of the greatest feats in human history.

Mikko Lagerstedt

If you’re looking for stunning pictures of space from here on Earth, then you should check out Mikko Lagerstedt’s feed. The Finnish photographer captures the sky in all its colorful beauty and epicness all from his backyard.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

He has been credited with making space cool again (and also making astrophysics fun to learn), but he’s also damn funny on Twitter. From quips about science to genuinely interesting facts, his feed is not only for the science geeks, but for anyone.
