Space exploration timeline

By josue.


Space exploration timeline

1900

  • A scientist named tisolkovsly started testing rockets.

  • February 1892, after 12 years of working as teacher in the small town of Borovsk, Tsiolkovsky was promoted to a new position, in the provincial capital of Kaluga. Tsiolkovsky would remain in Kaluga until his death in 1935, and it was there that he created the monumental body of work that secured his place as a prophet of the Space Age.


Space exploration timeline

1914

  • Scientist Robert Hutchings Goddard (October 5, 1882 – August 10, 1945) was an American professor, physicist and inventor who is credited with creating and building the world's first liquid-fueled rocket, which he successfully launched on March 16, 1926. Scientist named Goddard patented the first rocket.


Space exploration timeline

1926

  • Goddard launches the first successful rocket.

  • His 1919 monograph, A Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes, is considered one of the classic texts of 20th century rocket science. Goddard successfully applied three-axis control, gyroscopes and steerable thrust to rockets, all of which allow rockets to be controlled effectively in flight.


Space exploration timeline

1930

  • V-z space craft was made.

  • The  US Navy’s only attempt to launch a liquid fueled rocket from an aircraft carrier. Operation Sandy involved the September 6, 1947 launch of a V-2 rocket from the deck of the USS Midway. A newsreel account of the launch can be viewed online.


Space exploration timeline

1944

  • V2 space craft left earths atmosphere.

  • German scientists invent the V-2 (rocket propelled bomb)

  • First German V-2 fired in combat exploded in suburb of Paris; the second struck London a few hours later


Space exploration timeline

1954

  • Viking space craft reached 159 miles above earth

  • Soon after World War II, the United States and the Soviet Union became locked in a global conflict pitting democracy against communism. Space became a critical theater in this Cold War, as each side competed to best the other's achievements in what became known as the Space Race.This gallery tells about that U.S.-Soviet space rivalry and its aftermath, from the military origins of the Space Race, through the race to the Moon and the development of reconnaissance satellites, to cooperative ventures between the two former rivals and efforts to maintain a human presence in space. Some of the many highlights include a German V-1 "buzz bomb" and V 2 missile, Soviet and U.S. spacecraft and space suits, a Skylab Orbital Workshop, and a full-size test version of the Hubble Space Telescope


Space exploration timeline

1957

  • Soviet satellite sputnik became the first man made object to orbit earth.

  • November 3 - The Soviet spacecraft Sputnik 2 was launched with a dog named Laika on board. Laika did not survive the voyage.

  • August 19 - The Soviet craft Sputnik 5 was launched, carrying the dogs Strelka and Belka. They became the first living beings to survive a trip into space.


Space exploration timeline

1961

  • The Redstone rocket lifted.

  • From the October 24, 1996, edition of the Marshall Star, published by the Marshall Space Flight Center)On October 27, 1961, NASA launched its first Saturn rocket, a major milestone in the challenge to send humans to the moon before the end of the decade and return them safely to earth


Space exploration timeline

1961

Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin orbited the Earth on board Vostok 1 on this day in 1961. The historic event was a significant victory for the Soviet Union in the Cold War space race with the United States, which had scheduled its first manned space flight for May of that same year. Twenty years later to the day, in 1981, the United States reached another milestone in the space program by launching the first reusable manned spacecraft to travel into space, the space shuttle Columbia


Space exploration timeline

1967

  • soviet Yuri gagarim became the first space traveler. Russian pilot cosmonaut. Flew on Vostok 1. First person in space. Due to his fame, the Soviet leadership did not want to risk him on another flight, but later relented.


Space exploration timeline

1967

  • moon photo taken by the lunaFive Lunar Orbiter missions were launched in 1966 through 1967 with the purpose of mapping the lunar surface before the Apollo landings. All five missions were successful, and 99% of the Moon was photographed with a resolution of 60 m or better. The first three missions were dedicated to imaging 20 potential lunar landing sites, selected based on Earth-based observations. These were flown at low inclination orbits. The fourth and fifth missions were devoted to broader scientific objectives and were flown in high altitude polar orbits. Lunar Orbiter 4 photographed the entire nearside and 95% of the farside, and Lunar Orbiter 5 completed the farside coverage and acquired medium (20 m) and high (2 m) resolution images of 36 pre-selected areas. The images at the top of the page show the Lunar Orbiter spacecraft with the high and medium resolution cameras at the center, and an image of the crater Tycho taken with the Lunar Orbiter 5 medium resolution camerar orbiter.


Space exploration timeline

1969

  • Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon.

  • His first spaceflight was aboard Gemini 8 in 1966, for which he was the command pilot, becoming one of the first U.S. civilians to fly in space (Joseph Albert Walker was the first US civilian in space several years earlier).On this mission, he performed the first manned docking of two spacecraft together with pilot David Scott. Armstrong's second and last spaceflight was as mission commander of the Apollo 11 moon landing mission on July 20, 1969. On this mission, Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin descended to the lunar surface and spent 2½ hours exploring while Michael Collins remained in orbit in the Command Module. Armstrong is a recipient of the Congressional Space Medal of Honor.


Space exploration timeline

1971

  • First space station.

  • Salyut 1 was the first space station put into orbit. The Soviets launched it from Bikaner Cosmodrome on April 19, 1971 using a three-stage Proton launch vehicle. It completed 362 orbits before deorbiting and reentering the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean in October. It was destroyed by frictional heating during its return and it ended on 1973


Space exploration timeline

1972

  • Apollo 16 takes picture of the earth.

  • Apollo 16 was the fifth mission to land men on the moon and return them to Earth. It was also the second flight of the Lunar Roving Vehicle. Apollo 16 landed in a highlands area, a region not yet explored on the Moon. Astronauts collected samples, took photographs and conducted experiments that included the first use of an ultraviolet camera/spectrograph on the Moon.


Space exploration timeline

1973

  • First U.S. space station is launched.

  • America launches space station.

  • SkyLab was launched by a Saturn 5 rocket, replacing the third stage. This explains its shape, a large cylinder with a few panels out. It was launched in 1973, and all the missions aboard it would take place in that same year. Skylab 3, in November '73, shut SkyLab down to conserve power while waiting for the space shuttle in 1982. Unfortunately, Skylab fell into the Indian Ocean in 1979.


Space exploration timeline

1976

  • Images from satellite show martian soil from first us space probe on a another planet.

  • In 1974 and 1976, the United States launched two German-built Helios probes, which passed inside the orbit of Mercury to measure solar radiation. The Ulysses space probe was launched in 1990 by the United States and the European Space Agency, an association of 14 European nations.
