When you think back about some of the coolest things that we learned about space in 2019, I bet you recall that super grainy, kinda-looking-like-the-eye-of-sauron, black hole image. Or the announcement that by 2024 we’ll have a lunar gateway and a definite plan to get to Mars. There was even the announcement of a new branch of the military; the Space Force to keep us organized out there. But, you know what? That’s only a small fraction of the cool shit we learned this year.
NASA, as well as other space agencies, universities and private organizations have done some stellar work on understanding what’s up there, and it’s going to change how we move out into the cosmos in the next decades and centuries.
We’re seriously getting closer to boldly going where no one’s gone before and it’s insane.
