Enduring NASA Breakthroughs in February 2019(Image Source: IANS)

February 27 : From the first spaceship, to powerful telescope, we have always been enthralled by the developments accomplished by NASA. And still, they never seem to stop impressing the world.

The month of February 2019 has been a truly happening month for NASA. To start with, they informed the world that MarCO – a pair of briefcase sized spacecraft had settled into sleep in deep space. It was one of the successes that NASA can adore always, as the pair could update Earth on their detailed descent into the Martian grounds.

Next, in the NASA Twin study, they comforted the world that people could travel to Mars without being affected in their two and a half year trip to Mars. In February, NASA announced that the Opportunity mission on Mars would come to a close after a heart- breaking sandstorm struck the area.

One of the recent appreciable announcements was that Virgin Galactic was able to touch the edge of space just 90 km about Earth’s surface for the second time.

Also, we can applaud NASA’s space telescope for being able to identify over 1000 planets to live in and also its capacity to teach our scientists how the universe took shape.

On March 2nd 2019, we will have to await to see the glorifying launch of SpaceX’s Crew Dragon. It will be unmanned and the first of its kind.
