Our mirror segment deployments are complete! 🎉 Using motors, each segment was moved out about half the length of a paper clip to clear the mirrors from their launch restraints and give each segment enough space for mirror alignment. go.nasa.gov/32fkuz3 #UnfoldTheUniverse

Our @NASAInSight lander has exited "safe mode" after a recent Martian dust storm forced it to conserve energy. Teams aim to resume science operations next week for the marsquake-detecting probe.
Skies seem to be clearing overhead, so I’m out of safe mode and back to more normal operations. I’ll wait to start doing more science until I know how much power I can expect to generate once the storm settles.

After analyzing powdered rock samples collected by @MarsCuriosity, scientists found that some are rich in a type of carbon that on Earth is associated with biological processes. It's not proof of life on Mars, but it's "tantalizingly interesting." Details: go.nasa.gov/3tCuJc4
