1957 – 2007
So next year 2008, Nasa EDGE will be covering some of the greatest achievements of the past 50 years.
I’ve just looked in Nasa EDGE’s blog and they would like to hear from us! Their question is
- What do you think are some of the most memorable NASA achievements over the past 50 years?
you can comment about any funny stories on Nasa’s missions and projects. Nasa EDGE would like to hear comments from early Nasa’s history.
“Maybe one of your comments or stories will make a NASA EDGE show”
You can comment here but make sure you comment in NASA EDGE blog.
Some of my greatest memorable NASA achievements are:
- the birth of (NASA)-National Aeronautics and Space Administration on October 1, 1958 🙂
- The lunch of its first earth satellite (Explorer-I) on January 31st, 1958.
- The successful Apollo 7 mission in October 1968.
- The successful Apollo 8 mission, which orbited the Moon on December 24-25, 1968.
- The successful landing of Apollo 11 mission on July 20th, 1969.
- The successful of other crazy missions like Apollo 12,13,14,15,16,17 and all the other crazy missions.
- The successful of building space rockets, lunching things and failing 🙂
- Sending live animals into space with the launch of Challenger flight STS-51B on April 28, 1985 🙂
- the successful launch of the Hubble Space Telescope astronomical observatory into orbit.
- And at last, the successful of celebrating 50 years of NASA 🙂 haha
Thus are some of 10 achievements, please add yours so the total can be 50 😉 hahaha
I Just remember of all this, my first and last time I visited Kennedy Space Center (NASA) Florida in 2000, 7 years ago. I hope that I will visit NASA again and I hope the other next 50 years of NASA will be successful in Space age of exploration and searching for life beyond our planet earth and beyond our Galaxy-the Milky Way.
