Best pictures from the world’s space programmes

Date:24 February 2021 Author: Leila Stein

While South Africa may have not a space programme, we contribute considerably to those undertaken by NASA, ESA and Roscosmos. Our technology and scientists play instrumental roles in the satellites, transmissions and expertise needed to reach the great scientific heights we’ve seen over the decades.

All of these impressive programmes have instruments sending back reams of data (though not actually in reams anymore). Many include images of the Earth, other planets or galaxies.

We’ve compiled some of the most beautiful images from across their social media accounts to inspire you.
