Space Probes

Space Probes

Opportunity launched into space on July 7, 2003 and is now unknown km from Earth. Its primary destination is Mars, which it arrived at on January 25, 2004. Wherever Opportunity goes, it carries its trusty drill, gamma ray spectrometer, hazcams, magnets, microscope, navigational camera, panoramic camera, thermal spectrometer, and x-ray spectrometer. Opportunity often chats with humans from NASA / JPL.

If like us you’re interested in all things space related, the site spaceprob.es is probably for you. The site curates “current information on the scientific probes sent into deep space by human beings of planet Earth.” Not a bad thing.

This was put together by a couple of space nerds who previously contributed to both Space Hack and NASA’s now defunct CoLab.
