An epic vojaye of dicovery. Juno was launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on August 5, 2011. Juno is the second spacecraft to orbit Jupiter, following the Galileo probe, which orbited from 1995 to 2003.
So now we will finally find out if Jupiter has a sollid core or that it is a gas giant. Maybe we’ll find a alien base.
At around 1.20 min into the track one can hear Juno hitting the magnetic field of Jupiter, the bow shot.
So today there was an Epic splashdown of the Orion spacecraft. The one that NASA want’s to take to Mars. Today I witnessed the launch just like the shuttle in the ’80. This scene is epic. The space craft and parachutes just disappear into the clouds.
Fuckyeah Space. Epic splashdown of the Orion spacecraft.
The Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (Orion MPCV) is a spacecraft intended to carry a crew of up to four astronauts to destinations at or beyond low Earth orbit (LEO). Currently under development by NASA for launch on the Space Launch System, Orion is intended to facilitate human exploration of asteroids and of Mars, as well as to provide a means of delivering or retrieving crew or supplies from the ISS if needed.
The MPCV’s first test flight (uncrewed), known as Exploration Flight Test 1 (EFT-1), was launched atop a Delta IV Heavy rocket on December 5, 2014 on a flight lasting 4 hours and 24 minutes, landing at its target in the Pacific Ocean at 10:29 Central (delayed from the previous day due to technical and weather problems). The first mission to carry astronauts is not expected to take place until 2021 at the earliest.
