NEW! 2023 NASA Science Calendar

December 23, 2022

Want to take a trip to outer space? The National Aeronautics Space Administration (NASA) much anticipated 2023 NASA Science Calendar is now available from the U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) Online Bookstore. The photography in this year’s calendar is even more fascinating and visually arresting than ever! Experience the beauty of a world beyond Earth’s atmosphere through the photography and words of NASA space experts in the 2023 NASA Science Calendar.

Here are a few photo excerpts from the 2023 NASA Science Calendar:

January: Mysterious “Superbubble” Hollows Out Nebula in Hubble Image (below). N44 is a complex nebula filled with glowing hydrogen gas, dark lanes of dust, massive stars, and many populations of stars of different ages. One of its most distinctive features, however, is the dark, starry gap called a “superbubble,” visible in this Hubble Space Telescope image in the central region.

February: NASA Rocket Endures Flight from Norway (not pictured–see calendar). On May 10, 2022, a NASA suborbital rocket called Endurance lifted off from the Svalbard Rocket Range in Norway—the northernmost launch range in the world. The rocket carried scientific instruments 475 miles (~764 kilometers) above the ground and through Earth’s magnetic north pole on a brief mission to study Earth’s global electric potential.

March: Young Volcano at Mount Bagana, Bougainville Island, Papua New Guinea (right). Since it was first observed by scientists in the 1840s, Mount Bagana has been erupting nearly nonstop. Of the three large volcanoes on Bougainville Island in Papua New Guinea, Mount Bagana is the only one currently active.

The NASA Science Calendar remains one of our best sellers. Grab your copy while supplies last!
