Can you spot the NASAs Curiosity Rover in this image? The Ball-built HiRISE camera did so from #Mars orbit! Ball Aerospace designed and built the HiRISE camera, which flies aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). HiRISE obtains images of Curiosity a few times each year. The University of Arizona, Tucson, operates HiRISE. #GoBeyond #NASA Credit - Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech/Univ. of Arizona

In a touching ceremony at Ball Aerospace in Boulder, Alan Stern and the #NASA New Horizons mission team joined the family of Ball engineer, Lisa Hardaway to announce the re-naming of the spacecrafts LEISA infrared spectrometer instrument. The newly named Lisa Hardaway Infrared Spectrometer will fly aboard New Horizons as it journeys beyond the Kuiper Belt and into interstellar space. Over her more than 20 years at Ball, Lisa played key roles on several of our most famous programs, including serving as the Program Manager for the New Horizons Ralph instrument, which captured the first-ever images and data of Pluto and its moons. Lisa passed away earlier this year after a battle with cancer.

The Chandra X-ray Observatory studies some of the hottest and high-energy corners of the universe. Pictured here is the R Aquarii system, where a white dwarf and a variable red giant orbit around each other. X-ray data from @nasachandraxray is shown in blue. Optical data is shown in red. Over a period of nearly 30 years, NASA launched a series of large space telescopes, including Chandra, collectively known as the Great Observatories. Ball played a critical role in each.
