NASA launching spacecraft to Mars from Vandenberg Air Force Base

NASA launching spacecraft to Mars from Vandenberg Air Force Base

NASA is headed back to Mars! The InSight spacecraft is scheduled to rocket away from Vandenberg Air Force Base early Saturday morning.

This could be a great show for Southern California residents. It’s the first ever mission to Mars launched from the West Coast.

If you are willing to get up early, you could have a front row seat and witness the rocket soaring overhead.

“When it takes off, it’s going to go straight south, right by L.A., you know, millions of people, please get up and watch this beautiful launch. It’ll be early, like 4:05 in the morning,” said Jim Green with NASA.

The ‘Big Brother’ video satellite, which is currently still a prototype can capture videos of individual people from orbit in high definition.

 

It was one of 31 payloads sent up in the Indian Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) carrying dozens of satellites from India and six other countries.

MOSCOW could use satellites to attack other spacecraft or Earth, senior US scientists and military bosses have spectacularly warned. In a terrifying scenario plucked straight from the pages of a James Bond espionage thriller, the experts said Russia could use kamikaze satellites to take out vital space infrastructure or “swallow” smaller satellites. Spacecraft could also […]
