There are countless satellites, space telescopes and, of course, planetary explorers among the technology wonders common to human space travel. Did you remember the first electric “car” that NASA launched on July 26, 1971? Stop advertising the world’s most expensive car and get ready for a short space-time journey.
The past week was a wake-up week in our history of space technology. The world’s most powerful rocket Falcon Heavy, SpaceX’s 7-year study of a private company, was thrown away after 90 million dollars spent. Basically, it was a test flight and the task of the rocket was to launch the charge into the Mars orbit.
Elon Musk, who owns the company, has put another company, Tesla Roadster, as a burden on the side of the rocket. For the first time, a passenger car was thrown into the distance. For the next 6 months, if we are lucky, we will go through a Mars orbit and a more orbit away before it breaks down.
But if the issue is to send a vehicle in the distance and have it be 4 cars, forget about Tesla’s most expensive automobile history.
The Lunar Roving Vehicle, or Moon Exploration Vehicle in Turkish, was launched by space agency NASA on July 26, 1971. In addition, there were astronauts with 15 Apollo crew members. When we arrived on July 31, the vehicle was removed from the lunar module. Astronauts David Scott and Jim Irwin were the first people to get on a ride outside the world. In 1972, Gene Cernan, who went to the Moon on the next mission, broke the speed record with the same vehicle on the surface of our moon. He reached a speed of 29.2 kilometers per hour.
The Lunar Discovery Tool helped people to gather information from an object on the street for the first time. Astronauts use this tool in the area with a radius of only 6 kilometers from the Moon module. Thanks to this tool, they were able to collect a lot of geological information they had obtained by walking around in this area.
The Tesla Roadster, which has been thrown away in the past week, cannot do any of these things. The crazy entrepreneur Musk, who has been working on the most expensive public relations in history in the automotive industry, awakened the same concern in the days of Apollo and created the same effect. But there are still things in our “car” that are on the loose, which are all about our imagination.
US National Aeronautics and Space Museum, Space History Curator Mike Neufeld, told Space.com in 2011:
Evet, uzayda araba çok güzel! Ama lütfen Mars’ta zaten bir roadster olduğunu unutmayalım. Yörünge değil Mars! Gezinip keşfeden, ölçümler yapan, Mars’ı bize anlatan! O yüzden bir şirketin yörüngeye araba çıkarması büyük başarı…da, o sırada Rover Mars’tan selfie yolluyor işte. 🙂 pic.twitter.com/hvCHSXCgj3

“The interest of the people was greatly diminished after Apollo 11. The public gradually began to blind against space technology Apollo 15 was an interesting development for the people One of the biggest reasons for this was that the departure area was much more striking and of course Ay’dan There was a big impact on live broadcasts, and public opinion showed great interest in the astronauts being there. ”
The first car sent to the Moon had the same impact in subsequent generations and had a positive impact on the new NASA engineers. Her grandchildren, who have slightly modified versions of the design features, follow her. The 12-wheel moon vehicles, the moon explorers and the cabin facilities developed for astronauts followed the process.
The recent departure of Musk in order to ensure that future tasks are performed with the same spirit and motivation represents an awakening from this point of view. At the same time, SpaceX, which also worked to bring back everything we sent away, is inspired by the crews of the Apollo 15, 16 and 17 crew who were left on the Moon at the time. But there is an important difference: how the human being is going to succeed in returning that way.
The Tesla Roadster, which will play songs on the radio until the battery runs out, could be the first car on the street. At the same time it is the most dysfunctional and only a burden. His benefit is special to Tesla, who writes history on the land routes on earth.
