Farewell, Deep Space 1


Recommended Posts

I have just read, that sadly, after many fantastic adventures, NASA's Deep Space 1 probe has been finally turned off.

When we are constantly seeing images of how awful human beings can be to each other, it is wise to take the effort to find the things that show us how fantastic the human race can be. Deep Space 1 represented the frontiers of human achievement, and has brought space exploration forward by at least ten years through the advanced technologies that it tested.

If you don't know about this wonderful little probe, take some time now to read about its exploits, so that next time the media reports a bomb exploding, or people starving, you will be able to close your eyes and think of this tiny little spacecraft, and remind yourself that there are good things in the world as well.
