Most Innovative Advances in Space Technology

Science and space is truly a magnificent combination which can take you into realms of discoveries and endless wonders. Included in both of these are experiments, transformations, evolution, and other natural occurrences that take place in our world, the universe instead. Given that, below are the five most innovative advances in space technology that deserves your attention.

Hubble Space Telescope

With its first launch in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope was regarded as one of the most innovative and successful space exploration advances. It helped resolve lots of space mysteries and provided jaw-dropping images of the space and back on Earth by avoiding distortion. This technology also helped scientists identify the exact age of the universe, which resulted in more expeditions and discoveries concerning space and science.

Spacesuit Technology

Next, we have the spacesuit technology, which takes a lot of money and effort to do just one piece. It is said and proven that each spacesuit can weigh 300 lbs or more and cost over $22 million. It may be exaggerating, yet this is the truth. Besides, spacesuits are used for space expeditions, so it only needs extreme effort and dedication to protect the astronauts from space harms.

Kepler Space Telescope

This telescope is a low-cost one and was expected to last for four years only yet to last for ten years. It is used to find planets outside the solar system that has the same characteristics as Earth. Throughout the time, it was able to reveal almost 4,500 planets, including the candidate ones.

International Space Station

This is the most expensive and most extensive technology ever built, costing $160 billion and weighs a million pounds. It is the most significant and grandest investment in space technology to provide passengers five miles per second travel. Simply, it can take up only 90 minutes to travel around the Earth using this.

Spirit and Opportunity

Lastly, we have the spirit and opportunity that refers to the two successful rovers of Mars that brought discoveries to an effective controlling of the said planet. Many discoveries on Mars were made thanks to these two Mars rovers. They were advanced enough to be controlled from the Earth. This is the mission that provided the Earth people with details and photos about Mars’ atmosphere, materials, and condition.
