Map of Magellans round the world voyage, 1519-1521 Featured Image

Map of Magellans round the world voyage, 1519-1521

Map of Magellan's round the world voyage, 1519-1521. A Portuguese-born navigator sponsored by Spain, Ferdinand Magellan (c1480-1521) led the expedition that made the first circumnavigation of the globe. This Mercator projection map shows the route taken, which included the first passage through the straits at the southern tip of South America that bear Magellan's name. Magellan did not himself complete the voyage, as he was killed in the Philippines in a clash with natives. Of the five ships that set out from Spain in 1519, only one, the Victoria, commanded by Juan de Elcano, returned safely. From the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris

Lander, Mars, Viking, Proof Test Article, ca. 1964. Creator: Martin Marietta Featured Image

Lander, Mars, Viking, Proof Test Article, ca. 1964. Creator: Martin Marietta

This is the proof test article of the Viking Mars Lander. For exploration of Mars, Viking represented the culmination of a series of exploratory missions that had begun in 1964 with Mariner 4 and continued with Mariner 6 and Mariner 7 flybys in 1969 and a Mariner 9 orbital mission in 1971 and 1972. The Viking mission used two identical spacecraft, each consisting of a lander and an orbiter. Launched on August 20, 1975 from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, Viking 1 spent nearly a year cruising to Mars, placed an orbiter in operation around the planet, and landed on July, 20 1976 on the Chryse Planitia (Golden Plains). Viking 2 was launched on September 9, 1975 and landed on September 3, 1976. The Viking project's primary mission ended on November 15, 1976, 11 days before Mars's superior conjunction (its passage behind the sun), although the Viking spacecraft continued to operate for six years after first reaching Mars. The last transmission from the planet reached Earth on November 11, 1982
