NASA Goddard’s rewind is just a small sampling of the center’s highlights and memorable moments, including their first asteroid sampling mission when they launched OSIRIS-REx into space, Operation IceBridge measuring the Antarctic ice for the eighth year in a row, Hubble helping us confirm that the observable universe contains 10 times more galaxies than we previously thought, and finally, mapping the gravity field of Mars (humanity‚Äôs possible future home shown above). Plus, NASA finished building the James Web Space Telescope, which is set to launch in 2018 and search for life on other planets.
