Probing the Solar System
Wilkinson, John
Teaching Science, v59 n3 p42-44 Sep-Oct 2013
Humans have always had the vision to one day live on other planets. This vision existed even before the first person was put into orbit. Since the early space missions of putting humans into orbit around Earth, many advances have been made in space technology. We have now sent many space probes deep into the Solar system to explore the planets and asteroids. Some of these probes are still moving and operating, while others have stopped operating. This article provides an update of what has happened in the past year to some of these space probes. Teachers can use the article to promote further investigation by students of one or more of the probes discussed.
