You're nICE.Credit: NASA Goddard/Sara BlumbergAlt text: Cartoon glaciers, represented by bright blue and white abstract shapes against a navy background. Two black and white penguinsstand hear the center. White stars of various sizes twinkle in the background. A tiny cartoon ICESat-2 satellite, which has a silver body and one long purple solar panel, zooms across the image. Near the middle, it pauses ande emis six green beams toward the ice. Curly white fonts reads "You're nICE," with the ice capitalized.

You're one in a septillion.Alt text: One of Hubble’s deep field images, with countless stars and galaxies against a black background. The galaxies look more like smudges of blue, orange, and white light. The stars are similar in color, but have four distinct points. In curly white font in the bottom right corner, text reads “You’re one in a septillion.”

Original image credit: NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center/Jet Propulsion Laboratory/Southwest Research InstituteAlt text: A visualization of Jupiter and its magnetic field. Jupiter is centered in the image, with horizontal stripes of light brown, beige, white, and burnt orange. Jupiter's north and south poles each have a glowing blue halo. From these blue circles, beams of blue and purple emit out in a wide arc, creating a round cage encircling the planet, the magnetic field. Curly white font reads "You're absolutely magnetic."

Call me the Southern Ring Nebula the way I am nearly dead inside.Alt text: A black background speckled with tiny bright stars and distant galaxies. A planetary nebula is a misshapen oval that is slightly angled from top left to bottom right and takes up the majority of the image. A bright white star at the center has long diffraction spikes. Large, transparent teal and orange ovals, which are shells ejected by the unseen central star, surround it. White curly font reads "Call me the Southern Ring Nebula the way I am nearly dead inside."

Listen...I could use some space.Alt text: The background of space is black. Thousands of galaxies appear all across the view. Their shapes and colors vary. Some are various shades of orange, others are white. Most stars appear blue, and are sometimes as large as more distant galaxies that appear next to them. A very bright star is just above and left of center. It has eight bright blue, long diffraction spikes. Between 4 o’clock and 6 o’clock in its spikes are several very bright galaxies. A group of three are in the middle, and two are closer to 4 o’clock. These galaxies are part of the galaxy cluster SMACS 0723, and they are warping the appearances of galaxies seen around them. Long orange arcs appear at left and right toward the center. Curly white font reads "Listen...I could use some space."

Put a ring on it.Alt text: Saturn against a black backdrop. Saturn is shades of buttery yellow, gold, and muted oranges, striping the planet horizontally. It’s surrounded by yellow, brown, and beige rings. The inner rings are more yellow, with a black gap separating darker brown rings near the outside. Saturn is lit from the right side, so its shadow falls along the rings around the 10 o’clock region. In curly white font along the bottom, text reads “Put a ring on it.”

This love is looking like a scrub.Alt text: A small sounding rocket on its launcher, elevated up vertically. The sun is bright behind the launcher and rocket, creating a silhouette effect making the rocket and launcher darker. The launcher is slightly taller than the rocket, and has thick base with a metal brace that looks like a ladder along the right side of the rocket in the image. Curly white font reads "This love is looking like a scrub."
