13 Reasons to Have an Out-of-This-World Friday (the 13th)

1. Not all of humanity is bound to the ground

Since 2000, the International Space Station has been continuously occupied by humans. There, crew members live and work while conducting important research that benefits life on Earth and will even help us eventually travel to deep space destinations, like Mars.

2. We’re working to develop quieter supersonic aircraft that would allow you to travel from New York to Los Angeles in 2 hours

We are working hard to make flight greener, safer and quieter – all while developing aircraft that travel faster, and building an aviation system that operates more efficiently. Seventy years after Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier in the Bell X-1 aircraft, we’re continuing that supersonic X-plane legacy by working to create a quieter supersonic jet with an aim toward passenger flight.

3. The spacecraft, rockets and systems developed to send astronauts to low-Earth orbit as part of our Commercial Crew Program is also helping us get to Mars

Changes to the human body during long-duration spaceflight are significant challenges to solve ahead of a mission to Mars and back. The space station allows us to perform long duration missions without leaving Earth’s orbit.

Although they are orbiting Earth, space station astronauts spend months at a time in near-zero gravity, which allows scientists to study several physiological changes and test potential solutions. The more time they spend in space, the more helpful the station crew members can be to those on Earth assembling the plans to go to Mars.

4. We’re launching a spacecraft in 2018 that will go “touch the Sun”

In the summer of 2018, we’re launching Parker Solar Probe, a spacecraft that will get closer to the Sun than any other in human history. Parker Solar Probe will fly directly through the Sun’s atmosphere, called the corona. Getting better measurements of this region is key to understanding our Sun. 

For instance, the Sun releases a constant outflow of solar material, called the solar wind. We think the corona is where this solar wind is accelerated out into the solar system, and Parker Solar Probe’s measurements should help us pinpoint how that happens.  

5. You can digitally fly along with spacecraft…that are actually in space…in real-time!

NASA’s Eyes are immersive, 3D simulations of real events, spacecraft locations and trajectories. Through this interactive app, you can experience Earth and our solar system, the universe and the spacecraft exploring them. Want to watch as our Juno spacecraft makes its next orbit around Juno? You can! Or relive all of the Voyager mission highlights in real-time? You can do that too! Download the free app HERE to start exploring.

6. When you feel far away from home, you can think of the New Horizons spacecraft as it heads toward the Kuiper Belt, and the Voyager spacecraft are beyond the influence of our sun…billions of miles away

Our New Horizons spacecraft completed its Pluto flyby in July 2015 and has continued on its way toward the Kuiper Belt. The spacecraft continues to send back important data as it travels toward deeper space at more than 32,000 miles per hour, and is ~3.2 billion miles from Earth.

In addition to New Horizons, our twin Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft are exploring where nothing from Earth has flown before. Continuing on their more-than-37-year journey since their 1977 launches, they are each much farther away from Earth and the sun than Pluto. In August 2012, Voyager 1 made the historic entry into interstellar space, the region between the stars, filled with material ejected by the death of nearby stars millions of years ago.

7. There are humans brave enough to not only travel in space, but venture outside space station to perform important repairs and updates during spacewalks

Just this month (October 2017) we’ve already had two spacewalks on the International Space Station…with another scheduled on Oct. 20. 

Spacewalks are important events where crew members repair, maintain and upgrade parts of the International Space Station. These activities can also be referred to as EVAs – Extravehicular Activities. Not only do spacewalks require an enormous amount of work to prepare for, but they are physically demanding on the astronauts. They are working in the vacuum of space in only their spacewalking suit. 

8. Smart people are up all night working in control rooms all over NASA to ensure that data keeps flowing from our satellites and spacecraft

Our satellites and spacecraft help scientists study Earth and space. Missions looking toward Earth provide information about clouds, oceans, land and ice. They also measure gases in the atmosphere, such as ozone and carbon dioxide and the amount of energy that Earth absorbs and emits. And satellites monitor wildfires, volcanoes and their smoke.

9. A lot of NASA-developed tech has been transferred for use to the public

Our Technology Transfer Program highlights technologies that were originally designed for our mission needs, but have since been introduced to the public market. HERE are a few spinoff technologies that you might not know about.

10. We have a spacecraft currently traveling  to an asteroid to collect a sample and bring it back to Earth

OSIRIS-REx is our first-ever mission that will travel to an asteroid and bring a sample of it back to Earth. Currently, the spacecraft is on its way to asteroid Bennu where it will survey and map the object before it “high-fives” the asteroid with its robotic arm to collect a sample, which it will send to Earth.

If everything goes according to plan, on Sept. 24, 2023, the capsule containing the asteroid sample will make a soft landing in the Utah desert.

11. There are Earth-sized planets outside our solar system that may be habitable

To date, we have confirmed 3,000+ exoplanets, which are planets outside our solar system that orbit a Sun-like star. Of these 3,000, some are in the habitable zone – where the temperature is just right for liquid water to exist on the surface.  

Recently, our Spitzer Space Telescope revealed the first known system of SEVEN Earth-size planets around a single star. Three of these plants are firmly in the habitable zone, and could have liquid water on the surface, which is key to life as we know it.

12. Earth looks like art from space

In 1960, the United States put its first Earth-observing environmental satellite into orbit around the planet. Over the decades, these satellites have provided invaluable information, and the vantage point of space has provided new perspectives on Earth.

The beauty of Earth is clear, and the artistry ranges from the surreal to the sublime.

13. We’re building a telescope that will be able to see the first stars ever formed in the universe

Wouldn’t it be neat to see a period of the universe’s history that we’ve never seen before? That’s exactly what the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will be able to do…plus more!

Specifically, Webb will see the first objects that formed as the universe cooled down after the Big Bang. We don’t know exactly when the universe made the first stars and galaxies – or how for that matter. That is what we are building Webb to help answer.

Happy Friday the 13th! We hope it’s out-of-this-world!

Imagine the Slashers watching porn, and they deciding that they want to do it to you… (Jason… Michael Myers)

Jason: He was watching the video he had found in one of the backpacks of the people he had killed. He watched the man who was behind the woman as he thrust into her over and over again. He cocked his head when he felt his own dick begin to harden. He wondered what it would feel when he did the same thing to Y/N…

He looked over as you sat alongside him on the couch, reading a book as the moans and gasps of the people on the tv filled the air. He noticed how your nipples were hard against your tanktop. And he wondered how they would feel in his mouth.

He got up, running a hand over your shoulder, where you smiled at him, running a hand over his as he walked away. You gasped as the entire cabin went dark.

“Jason? Whats doing on?” You ask as you glanced around the living room of the cabin. You put down your book before you felt Jasons weight sat next to you, and when you felt to touch him, you gasped when he caught your wrist.

“J-jason…?” You whispered as he pulled you onto his lap. You felt him touch your lips with his finger, telling you to shush. And you trembled as he lifted your arms above your head. You shivered as you felt him take off your tank top and cup your breasts in his hands.

You closed your eyes as you felt his thumbs massaged them. And you gasped when you felt his lips touch your skin of your collarbone before he kissed and licked his way down to your nibbles.

You clutched at his unmasked head as his mouth took your nipple into his mouth. “Oh god!”

Jason moaned at the taste of you in his mouth, his tongue taking a mind of its own as he flicked it. He bit. Sucked. Licked and kissed until you were squirming in his lap.

He pushed you back against the couch, quickly undressed and pulled off your sweatpants before forcing you to your knees, facing the back of the couch, bending you forward.

“Jason please…”

And with that plea, he began to thrust into you hard. Your flesh meeting his in hard slaps. You came as he hit that spot inside you, causing you to scream his name. And when he moaned in response, you knew he was close.

You began to thrust back, gasping with every thrust, and felt your head being tugged back by your hair as his other hand gripped your hip hard.

You both groaned deeply as you came together. His cum filling you deeply as he thrusted into you one final time.

Michael Myers: He didnt have a plan as he saw you painting the wall. He just wanted to be inside you. He had watched a small porn video of a man taking his lover against the wall, and knew when he saw you painting, it was what he wanted to do to you.

You were humming a small tune as you painted the wall a soft blue. You didn’t hear Michael walk down the hall, nor did you seem him loom over you before you felt your body be pushed against the still wet wall.

You gasped but felt a hand cover your mouth as another quickly removed your pants. You glanced behind you, and watched Michael pull your pants down your legs before he buried his face betwen your legs. You moaned when he began to lick and suck on you. You felt him begin to finger you, making you wetter and wetter until when he stood up and thrust into you, he slid in.

You gasped and moaned with each thrust, your hands smearing the wet paint as your cheek became blue from the paint. You felt Michael grab your neck, and thrust into you harder.

He groaned before pulling out of you, spun you around and picked you up. His eyes locked with yours as he lifted you up. He wrapped your arms around his shoulders before wrapping your legs around his waist.

“Hold on…” He whispered to you before he thrust until you. Hard.

You held onto him, burying your face against his neck as he thrust harder and harder into you. His moans began to get harsher and more frequent as he got closer to coming.

“I am going to come so deep inside you… It wont come out.” You heard him whisper in your ear before he gripped your hips hard.

His hips were nearly a blur as he fucked you. You gasped, moaned and finally screamed as you came. And when you gripped himself inside you, you made him come.

He shouted your name as he came, his come spilling into you as you both shivered in each others arms.

Imagine getting married to your favorite Slasher, and when the officiant says ‘if any who have issue with this marriage, may they speak now or forever hold their peace..“ And the other Slashers stand up with their weapons out.

Day 4: Freddy.
