MIR Space Station

Soviet/Russian space station Mir, after completion in The date shown for each module is its year of launch. Docked to the station are a Soyuz TM manned spacecraft and an unmanned Progress resupply ferry.

Who’s visiting who? This chart of solar system exploration shows every robotic space probe currently exploring (or about to explore) a major solar system object… except for the Earth and Sun of course, because there are way to many of those to show on one chart.

NASA's Voyager 1 and 2 probes launched in 1977 to visit the outer planets of the solar system. After 35 years in space, the twin probes are approaching the edge of our solar system.

The unmanned Voyager 1 and 2 probes were launched in 1977 on a mission to visit all the outer planets of the solar system. After 35 years in space, the twin probes are approaching the edge of our solar system.

It blows my mind that Voyager 2 managed to fly by all four outer planets! The fortunate alignment of Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Uranus only occurs once every 175 years.

The Voyager Golden Record was compiled by two people in love: the astronomer Carl Sagan, and Ann Druyan, the creative director of the project, who he would later marry. recorded the electrical impulses of her brain and nervous system, her heartb

The Asteroid Belt Explained: Space Rocks by the Millions (Infographic) Great online poster! In the coming years, commercial space ventures hope to send robot space probes to mine valuable material from the asteroids.

The Rosetta spacecraft is due to wake up on the morning of January 20 after an 30-month hibernation in deep space. For the past ten years, the three-ton spacecraft has been on a one-way trip to a 4 km-wide comet. When it arrives, it will set about performing a maneuver that has never been done before: landing on a comet’s surface.
