October 1, The Container Celebrated its 64th Anniversarywith a mission to be responsible for the civilian space program and aerospace research.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is officially an agency of the United States government. Founded by Dwight Eisenhower, its origin is civilian, not military, so the applications of space science have been peaceful.
To celebrate its anniversary, the space agency decided to invite its followers to join the celebration in a very original way: Reveal photos taken in space on each Internet user’s birthday.
It is important to clarify that it is the day of birthdays and not the day of birth, because the tool developed by NASA only allows you to enter the day and month.
What photo was taken in memory of NASA?
Through its Twitter account, NASA revealed the image taken in space on October 1, 2001, already with the Hubble Space Telescope in orbit.
“Are you saying it’s your birthday? It’s also our birthday, yes! NASA was founded on October 1, 1958. On October 1, 2001, Tweet embed Take this picture of a galaxy 50 million light years away”, wrote the US space agency on the social network, sharing the photo.
“See what the space telescope saw on your birthday: https://imagine.gsfc.nasa.gov/hst_bday/‘, added NASA, sharing the link with the platform where you can see the photo taken on your birthday.
Oddly enough, I used the tool and put on my birthday and the result was globular star cluster NGC 6397.
“This image captures about 200 stars in NGC 6397. The density of this star cluster is so low that Hubble can see through the cluster and detect background galaxies much further behind.website reports.
