The Aug. 21 total solar eclipse across America is generating a lot of interest – and a lot of questions. You’ll find answers to many of your eclipse questions at NASA’s Eclipse 2017 website -- eclipse2017.nasa.gov. The site is full of information to help you prepare for this rare celestial event – including eclipse-related activities, events, viewing safety tips, and other resources. Then, on the day of the eclipse, you can see the event “Through the Eyes of NASA” – during a special NASA TV broadcast that includes coast-to-coast coverage from the ground, from the air and from space. Coverage begins with a special pre-show at noon eastern – followed by in-depth coverage at 1pm. You can also watch on Aug. 21 at www.nasa.gov/eclipselive. Also, TDRS-M Update, Webb’s Sunshield Layers Installed, RS-25 Engine Testing Rolls On, and Chief Technologist Visits Industry Partner!
