GIFs in space! NASA makes an official channel on Giphy

In addition to exploring the solar system and performing critical and fascinating research on the Earth itself, NASA produces a lot of cool imagery.

And the zany and fun:

Many have links to the science or news item they’re associated with, so you can learn while you mindlessly loop.

I counted about 500 total, and more are surely on the way. If you want to invoke one at random through a bot or search for the collection from other apps and locations, #nasagif is the tag you should use.

It also uploaded a bunch to Pinterest, whatever that is.
