NASA’s ‘Eye in the Solar System’ website has been updated, allowing users to explore outer space from the comfort of their own homes.
NASA’s Eyes on the Solar System website has been updated, allowing space enthusiasts to explore the “universe beyond and the spacecraft exploring them.” From 1950 to 2050, visitors can explore the planets, their moons, asteroids, comets, and spacecraft. The website also allows them to simulate the landing of NASA’s spacecraft, such as the Perseverance rover, which was sent by the agency to explore the surface of Mars for signs of past life and to examine rock and soil samples.
The website Eyes on the Solar System will also assist in keeping track of the Artemis I mission once it launches.
The mission is scheduled to launch in late September, and the update appears to coincide with that.
“You can recreate famous moments in solar system exploration or preview exciting adventures yet to come by using real trajectory data. Travel with the Voyager spacecraft on their epic journey, orbit Mars with MAVEN, fly by a comet with Deep Impact or Stardust, and observe our home planet alongside spacecraft that monitor Earth’s climate “NASA stated about the website Eyes on the Solar System.
HotHardware was the first to notice the update.
Artemis I is scheduled to launch between September 23 and September 27.
The dates were chosen to avoid clashes with the DART (Double Asteroid Redirection Test), in which a probe is scheduled to collide with an asteroid on September 26.
The launch dates, however, are contingent on NASA receiving a special waiver to avoid having to retest batteries on an emergency flight system, which is used to destroy the rocket if it deviates from its designated range and lands in a populated area.
If the waiver is not granted, the rocket will have to be wheeled back to its assembly building, causing the timeline to be pushed back several weeks.
