[BBC] Unmanned space truck docks with space station - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I love NASA...

If you look at some of the things they have done in the past (ZOMG Voyager went to the edge of the solar system in the 80's) it is truely mind boggling. It makes me want to live for 1000 years just to see where technology will go...unless it turns into a Skynet powered Matrix.

Edit:

WoW...Voyager 1 is 94 times further from the Sun that Earth and still has power thanks to its 40 year old Nuclear Batteries.

Wow, Im impressed. I thought there was always a crew on those missions, to make sure nothing went wrong. I havent read the article yet, (but I definitely will) but what kind of spacecraft? If it was a shuttle, then doesnt it need someone to pilot it back?

The fact that they can do unmanned flights like that is great... That means they can bring up that much more supplies and equipment, without the need of life support, astronaut gear, and everything humans need to survive for a few hours. An impressive feat, to be sure.

edit: Ok read the article, so that answers my questions about piloting it. Still, very cool
