Future mazing Space Missions:

Asteroid Insurance Policy is Created by ESA (2023)

A technique that can identify “risky” asteroids weeks before they approach Earth is something that the European Space Agency (ESA) is working to develop. The Hera Mission, scheduled to launch in 2023, will be “humanity’s first visit to a binary asteroid system.”

Yusaku Maezawa, a businessman, designer, and curator of modern art from Japan, will be “the company’s first private passenger to fly around the Moon in 2023.”

Maezawa recently admitted that he is “broke,” therefore it is uncertain whether he will be able to follow through with the plan and travel.

Asteroid Sample Return from OSIRIS-REx (2023)

By 2023, the OSIRIS-REx mission, which was launched in 2016 to go to the asteroid Bennu, is predicted to have brought back a 2.1-ounce sample of the rocky object.

In November 2018, the spacecraft arrived to Bennu and sent back a lot of breathtaking images of the asteroid. These spacecraft could have brought the elements necessary for life to Earth because they are solar system formation relics. Scientists are optimistic that we may utilise these materials to understand the beginnings of life on our planet.

 

The NASA Artemis Moon Mission (2024)

By 2024, NASA intends to return the first man and the second man to the Moon.

Astronauts will go to the Lunar South Pole as part of the Artemis mission to learn more about the availability of resources like water and to test critical technology that will be essential on future journeys to Mars. Another objective is to examine how the human body holds up throughout extended space trips. They will travel in the Orion spacecraft, which will be propelled by SLS rockets developed by the Agency.

In essence, it’s Mars training.

2025: JAXA Travels to the Martian Moons:

The Martian Moons Exploration spacecraft from JAXA will orbit Mars in March 2025 and then move to the Phobos moon to gather particles using a straightforward pneumatic system. The last effort to collect a sample of Phobos failed in low-Earth orbit in 2011 with Russia’s Fobos-Grunt mission.

If successful, the spacecraft will come back to Earth after five years and attempt to determine if Mars’ moons are caught asteroids or the result of catastrophic planet collisions.

 

 

Launch of the Very Large Telescope (2025)

Here on Earth, some of the most intriguing space projects are still in progress. The ETL will be the largest telescope in the world when it is finished in Chile and will be able to collect 13 times more light than the most potent space telescopes now in use.

The structure consists of a reflecting telescope with a segmented primary mirror of 39.3 metres in diameter (130 feet) and a secondary mirror measuring 4.2 metres in diameter (14 feet). It will also be supplemented by adaptive optics, eight laser guide star units, and numerous huge science instruments.By 2023, the observatory’s design will collect 10 times as much light as the greatest optical telescopes currently in use, or nearly 100 million times more light than the human eye can perceive. It will also account for atmospheric distortion. According to the ELT’s specifications, it has about 250 times the Hubble Space Telescope’s light-gathering area and would provide images that are 16 times sharper.

In 2025, the American Habitat will reach the Lunar Gateway:

In collaboration with other international partners, NASA will continue to work on the Gateway cis-lunar orbiting space station during the 2020s. The actual science, however, starts once the American housing is delivered to the space station in 2025.

The space station can now accommodate four astronauts at once, and a long list of potential lunar landers will make the Gateway a hub of space-based activity—and perhaps even a stepping stone to Mars.

 

NASA Catches a First Look at Psyche in 2026:

 

The world will see Psyche, one of the 10 large asteroids in the asteroid belt, up close for the first time. According to experts, Psyche is the exposed nickel-iron core of a protoplanet.

The mission will launch in 2022 and travel for four years before arriving to its destination, where it will conduct ground-breaking research and deliver images that will further enlighten our solar system.

 

 

The 2026 NASA Dragonfly Titan Mission:

this much awaited trip to Titan, the frigid moon of Saturn. The rotorcraft is slated to launch in 2026 and is anticipated to reach Titan in 2034, where it will start investigating the many habitats of the moon.

Dragonfly will be able to transport its whole science payload to various sites throughout the ocean globe for the duration of the 2.7-year mission due to Titan’s atmosphere’s incredible density, which is four times that of Earth. Since Titan has been compared to an early Earth analogue, scientists are hoping that the expedition will help us better understand how life came to be on our planet.

 

Arrival of Jupiter’s JUICE Explorer by ESA (2029)

JUICE mission command personnel. Now, JUICE will travel a long way to reach Jupiter; it will pass Venus once in August 2025, three times in August 2024, September 2026, and January 2029, and three times in January 2029, before reaching Jupiter in July 2031. In October 2029, JUICE can also choose to pass by the asteroid 223 Rosa.

 

This mission from the European Space Agency will investigate not just one, but three moons of Jupiter: Ganymede, Callisto, and Europa. The probe will join the Jupiter system after completing its seven-year voyage after launch in 2022, but it will take another four years until it enters orbit around Ganymede in 2033.

Galileo might be pleased.

 

NASA’s Mars Mission in the 2030:

Although the date of this expedition technically falls outside of our decade timeframe by a year, we felt it was important enough to highlight. By the year 2030, NASA hopes to deploy astronauts to Mars.

A Transport Plan published by NASA outlines “an effort that expands human presence deeper into the solar system through a sustainable human and robotic space flight programme.” The plan comprises five phases for reaching Mars.
