In the mid-20th century, the USSR (at the time Russia was united and its name was ‘United States of Soviet Russia – USSR)’ was discovered by the space research organization ‘TASS'(TACC) conducting large-scale research. That hurted USA like, pouring oil into their stomachs.
On October 4th, when Russia launched the first man-made satellite ‘Sputnik-1’ into space, it boiled oil. But then US President Eisenhower went into a trouble and under pressure. He commanded the immediate preparation of the space research agency and was born from it.
NASA was established on 7th July, under the National Aeronautics and Space Act. However, the organization officially debuted on October 1st, 1958. T Keith Glennon was the first administrator of NASA. At the time of foundation, NASA had a staff of four laboratories and 80 employees. After World War II, German scientist Werner von Brownenen, an American citizen-turned-rocket scientist.
On July 20th 1969, dream became even possible. American astronaut Neil Armstrong becomes the first human to set foot on the moon. That’s when NASA’s successed begin. We can say that, which still does not stop today. There is a general impression that NASA is conducting research into the space universe. The impression is quite high and true too. However, the scope of NASA has now expanded. NASA has been tasked with doing some conservation inventions, and on July 2018, it was like watching NASA grow into a 60-year-old.
NASA sent Skylab into space in 1973, for the purpose of spending more time in space. After the completion of term or durability, the International Space Station acts as a downpour or terminal for astronauts. With that, NASA has Started building a space shuttle to carry large luggage, I mean to say things related to, into a space. Moreover, they built six shuttles in that era. Five of them sent into a space: Columbia, Challenger, Discovery, Atlantis, and Endeavor. The sixth craft not for enterprise space travel. Sadly, Challenger and Columbia are destroyed in an accident. Can you imagine? Success rate has more than 95% of their journey.
Located in the California State, Airbase has a approx 12000 meter long runway. Where all the space shuttles can fly in space. This runway is the longest in the world.
In 1990, NASA mounted a ‘Hubble Space Telescope‘ named after a scientist Edwin Hubble. Today, this telescope is displaying to NASA, what is going on millions of light years away in the universe. So far, Hubble has sent more than 5 million photos of 60000+ celestial bodies. Now technologies are updated and we have great version of telescope too.
