The Super Bowl football fans were not limited to the ones who headed to the stadium or watched it with friends on live stream television on Feb 2. NASA football fans all the way from space also got a view of the popular Super Bowl MetLife Stadium.

Several days before the actual Super Bowl XLVIII, a satellite of the U.S. space agency spotted the stadium where the heated competition between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos took place. It was captured by the Earth Observing-1 satellite, Yahoo reports.
The image spotted was described by chief editor Mike Carlowicz of the NASA Earth Observatory. He stated that the south part of the stadium from space sets a seemingly winter shadow over the fields. The parking lots that surround it have a grey appearance. The meadowland parts of the Super Bowl XLVIII stadium were seen in brown sections.
NASA also expressed their way of celebrating Super Bowl by tweeting images of cosmic explosions which include the oldest supernova ever recorded about 2,000 years ago. According to an article by the GuardianLV.com, the space agency's official Twitter account was posting pictures that come with hashtags #SupernovaSunday, #SuperBowl and #sb48.
The image may have been posted on their site about three years ago, but it was NASA's way to remind everyone of these amazing cosmic explosions that can only be shared to the people of the world through them. Each of their Supernova tweets got around 500 to 1,000 retweets along with numerous favourites too.
After all the Super Bowl XLVIII hype, RT.com wrote that NASA made a revelation of their plans to come up with the coldest spot in the universe by 2016. Researchers assigned for the project are starting to study the matters found within the absolute zero temperature. The coolest spot is what the U.S. space agency called as the "Cold Atom Laboratory" which is all set for installation right within the International Space Station in December 2015.
NASA believes it will reveal the essential world of Quantum Mechanics. The head scientist assigned to the project, Rob Thompson, stated that they "aim to push effective temperatures down to 100 pico-Kelvin."
