Exploring new ideas for space missions


Exploring new ideas for space missions Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency describes the Discovery and Preparation program, which is where new ideas for space exploration are created.

Through detailed studies of groundbreaking missions, the program develops new approaches and technologies.

For example, the experts will test the concept of using 3D printing to make a moon base and will analyze whether satellites could be used to detect marine plastic waste. The future of space travel is looking good, and there are plenty more space missions to get excited about in the near and distant future.

Our unquenchable thirst for space exploration and pushing the boundaries of science will see us going deeper into our Solar System and beyond for as long as humanity exists. Science Fair Project Idea Space exploration, living, and working in space exposes space travelers and their equipment to radiation not present on Earth. The study of how we can protect ourselves and our equipment is an essential part of space exploration.
