This blog gives an overview of the history of space exploration and how it has progressed in recent years.

 

The first step in the journey to the moon and beyond was taken on July 20, 1969, when Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the lunar surface. The next step was taken by President John F. Kennedy, who challenged America to put a man on the moon before the end of that decade.

 

The next big step was taken in 1972 when President Nixon announced his Space Exploration Initiative, which laid out a plan for NASA to develop a manned space program.

Exploring outer space and moving closer to the moon is not just a dream but a reality. Soon, humans will carry out humanitarian activities with humans in an effort to establish new habitats on the moon, Mars, and beyond.

 

In March, the launch abort system – also known as the LAS pathfinder – for NASA's Orion crew exploration vehicle began a week-long journey across the US to be delivered to White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, where it will help NASA prepare for the first abort system test, known as Pad Abort 1. The LAS pathfinder represents Orion's abort system's size, outer shape, and specific mass characteristics. This has created waves about Orion. 

 

Orion, as you know, will become NASA’s primary vehicle for human space exploration after the shuttle retired in 2010. It will carry astronauts to the International Space Station and eventually to the moon and beyond. The vehicle is scheduled to begin carrying humans to the International Space Station in 2015. For its return to Earth, Orion will be equipped with a system of parachutes and shock absorbers.

 

Orion is making a big splash. A mock-up of the spacecraft that will carry the next generation of astronauts to the moon and beyond is traveling down the East Coast and undergoing tests to help NASA understand its performance in the water.

 

‘One feature is its high mobility,' writes NASA on its website. ‘Each set of wheels can pivot individually in any direction, allowing the vehicle to drive sideways, forward, backward and any direction in between – a bit like a supermarket trolley.

NASA really led in the space technology section and here, once again, it makes the technology wall stronger by contributing LAS pathfinder. Innovation is the hobby of NASA and valuable move proves its researchers' hard work. Its preparation for the first abort system test, known as Pad Abort 1, can be declared here as an IT bomb on the technology tree.
