On Thursday NASA announced it has some exciting news about the moon. But we have to wait until next week for the live stream. Here’s how you can watch it in Australia.
Big NASA Moon News
The discovery comes from the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy, or, SOFIA. This is a modified Boeing 747 that contains a 2.5 metre telescope used for infrared astronomy. It is able to fly above most of the world’s atmosphere to get a less-obstructed view of space.
NASA has not revealed details about the announcement, but was at least kind enough to say it was exciting. Considering it’s 2020, anything less may have had us in a ‘Not Now, NASA’ panic.
“This new discovery contributes to NASA’s efforts to learn about the Moon in support of deep space exploration,” NASA said in a press release.
The release also made mention of NASA’s recently-announced Artemis project, which is looking to return to the moon in 2024. It plans on sending the first woman to the moon as well as have 4G connectivity up there, courtesy of Nokia.
