Voyager 2 Re-established Contact After 7 Months!

Voyager 2 Re-established Contact After 7 Months! Follow me on this GRAND TOUR to get to know how we re-established contact with Voyager 2: you will find cute pictures of Neptune, Saturn, Jupiter and Uran and, maybe, Micheal Jordan. Also, do you have any idea how do we communicate with Voyager 2? You'll find out in this video. Enjoy! - - Subscribe for more videos ►https://www.youtube.com/c/InsaneCuriosity?sub_confirmation=1?

The Mercury 13 Women

The Mercury 13 Women The women of the Mercury 13 program aced the same tests as male astronauts, but decades would pass before spaceflight would be for both men and women. The Mercury 13 were thirteen American women who, as part of a privately funded program, successfully underwent the same physiological screening tests as had the astronauts selected by NASA on April 9, 1959, for Project Mercury. The term was coined by James Cross as a comparison to the Mercury Seven name given to the selected male astronauts. The Mercury 13 program was not part of NASA's astronaut program, they never flew in space as part of a NASA mission, and never met as a whole group.

OSIRIS-REx Sheds Light on Hazardous Asteroid Bennu

OSIRIS-REx Sheds Light on Hazardous Asteroid Bennu On September 25, 2135, an asteroid called Bennu will make a close flyby of Earth. Our planet’s gravity will tweak Bennu’s path, making it a challenge to calculate its future trajectory. During the flyby, there is an extremely small chance that Bennu will pass through a “gravitational keyhole” – a region of space that would set it on just the right path to impact Earth, late in the 22nd century. Although it is difficult to determine the odds of this actually happening, new data from NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft have allowed scientists to better model how Bennu’s orbit will evolve over time, and to better calculate the probability of an impact.

Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral Florida | NASA Launch Operations Center 4K UHD

Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral Florida | NASA Launch Operations Center 4K UHD The John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC, originally known as the NASA Launch Operations Center) is one of ten National Aeronautics and Space Administration field centers. Since December 1968, Kennedy Space Center has been NASA's primary launch center of human spaceflight. Launch operations for the Apollo, Skylab and Space Shuttle programs were carried out from Kennedy Space Center Launch Complex 39 and managed by KSC. Located on the east coast of Florida, KSC is adjacent to Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS). The management of the two entities work very closely together, share resources, and even own facilities on each other's property.
