When our Interstellar Mapping and Acceleration Probe launches in 2024, it won't be going alone — the launch will carry additional satellites, including a bonus @NASA science mission! We've narrowed the search to two possibilities:
In 2024, our Interstellar Mapping and Acceleration Probe will launch with two other science missions and a technology demonstration! We've selected two possibilities for the small satellite tech demo, one of which will hitch a ride on the launch:
I propose that this @nytimes article be added to the next interstellar space probe for the insights into the human species it might provide potential alien civilizations...
Extraterrestrial life: An interesting space rock, or an interstellar probe? by @TonyaHallRadio
NASA's Voyager 2 probe, launched in 1977, is now more than 11 billion miles from Earth and has reached interstellar space, the agency said -- the second time a human-made object has reached this part of space, after Voyager 1
NASA's intrepid Voyager 2 probe crosses into interstellar space
The 2 probe no longer feels the solar wind & is flying through the interstellar space between the stars. It carries a working instrument providing 1st-of-its-kind observations of the nature of this gateway. Here's a look by the numbers: #AGU18
NASA opened 60 years ago today. Since then, it has: 🚀 Launched 135 space shuttle missions 👩🚀 Sent 350+ people into space 🌕 Made 6 successful moon landings 🛰️ Sent the Voyager-1 probe into interstellar space #NASA60th
NASA commanded Voyager 1 to fire its thrusters for the first time in 37 years. 13 billion miles away, off in interstellar space, the probe responded perfectly.
