Space Probes

rosetta-comet-spacecraftHumans have sent out many space probes into the vast unknown. Some are very famous, like Curiosity, Kepler, and Rosetta, whilst others are less well known.

Over at spaceprob.es, they have collected together and catalogued all the active human-made machines that freckle the solar system and dot the galaxy. They’ve provided a short amount of information about each probe, and provided excellent links to discover more about each one. The probes range from those furthest out (Voyager 1 and 2), to those practically on our doorstep (LRO and Artemis).

It’s well worth exploring and learning more about these wondrous pieces of technology. Onwards!
