The conquest of space did not always go according to plan, and it involved a great deal of learning from mistakes.. Over the six decades of the space age, many spacecraft have crashed on their way to the moon. In this material, we will consider the most resonant of these failures.
As they observed the forces of the universe around them, the ancients tried to learn how to harness them. The result of their zeal was the emergence of amazing machines and mechanisms. Here is our first article in a series dedicated to the development of science and technology.
Despite starting its space journey a little before Voyager 1, Voyager 2 was nevertheless made the number-two craft to bear its name. No. 2 has gone its own unique way, which we will talk about in the final part of our series on the Voyager space program.
This year we are expecting a lot of remarkable rocket launches, most of which have already been announced. Along with the programs of space agencies (NASA, ESA, CNSA), it is worth to note the increase in space launches by private companies.
Many businesses faced the question of whether to convert enterprises to wartime needs or to continue to do what they were created for. Let’s examine the risks involved in changing the direction of Ukrainian business in wartime and how the desire to help in the country’s defense can harm it.
The main plans of 2022: the lunar mission of the unmanned Orion spacecraft as part of the Artemis 1 program; the development and testing of new models of launch vehicles; cargo spacecraft, and research satellites; and the participation of the space sector in environmental conservation.
2022 marks the 45th anniversary of the two NASA spacecraft, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2. Voyager 1 recently began experiencing problems with its spatial orientation. We tried to figure out what happened to the spacecraft’s navigation, as well as looked at how exactly communication works in Deep Space.
ESA already stayed without a number of Russian rockets and components for their space missions. Perhaps, it is the Ukrainian space sector that has the necessary resources to meet these needs. Ukrainian space will have every chance to take place in the ESA it deserves.
