7 most spectacular NASA space photos of all time
Since ancient times, people were dreaming about space exploration. Today, some of the most legendary photographs in the history of humanity were taken hundreds of millions miles away from Earth. Let's take a look at them.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration was established in 1958. The same year, the Agency launched its first satellite, Pioneer 1. It began the exploration of the Solar System by NASA by collecting useful data about the near-Earth environment. Since then, NASA has successfully launched more than 200 missions, both robotic and crewed. In 1977, Voyager 1 left our planet to become the most distant man-made object from Earth. It reached the outer edge of the Solar System in 2010. It still transmits data to Earth.
Can you imagine how much incredible visual content there is in NASA's library? These pictures are awe-inspiring, and today you're going to see the most spectacular of them.
