A Colorado company successfully launched a top secret mini-space shuttle into orbit on Tuesday.
There was great excitement at NASA and several Colorado companies Monday morning after off one of the most complicated space missions ever, and the one-ton Mars rover named “Curiosity” is already sending back its first pictures.
Friday morning the latest Mars rover blasted off from Cape Canaveral. It’s mission is to try and determine once and for all if there is life on Mars.
It’s a journey to Jupiter that started in Colorado. The launch of the Juno spacecraft was picture perfect.
Replacing the shuttle and its crew with a commercial vehicle took another step forward on Monday that could mean a great deal Colorado-based space industry jobs.
It was a successful launch Saturday of a rocket carrying a high-tech satellite built by Lockheed Martin.
