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.


Which picture did you like the most? Have you ever dreamed about traveling to space?

Space is simply fascinating for everyone. It is thrilling to rise above the world of humans, at least in imagination, and to dive deep into the space beyond solar system, looking at infinitely vast space, inhabited by trillions of giant stars, galaxies, dust clouds and mysterious objects like black holes and quasars. It pays to feel and experience the humble position that we occupy on this listless planet earth, far flung around a modest yellow star, at the edge of an ordinary galaxy, lost somewhere in the limitless space. That feeling is more enthralling than the megalomaniac feeling of being, apparently the only intelligent beings on this side of Universe. Thanks for enabling this vicarious tour of the vast cosmos.
