Read Time: 8 minutes Let’s take a look at our closest stellar neighbors. Here are some fantastic solar system facts that you might not have known.
Space. The final frontier is in our grasp now more than ever.
In the last fifty years, we’ve put a man into orbit, set foot on the moon, launched countless satellites into orbit and beyond. We’ve learned more about planets within our solar system and celestial bodies outside of its gravitational pull. NASA, JAXA, ESA and Roscosmos inspire new generations to explore space with every successful mission and newly completely equipment. With the help of private space companies Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic, SpaceX and others pave the way for the dawn of a new space race. Where will we boldly go next? What have we already accomplished? Where will the future of space travel take us?
