The future in space technology is changing and becoming more advanced over the years. NASA is developing new ways to transport people and packages, in fact, NASA is developing drones for even small packages to be delivered in, safely, efficiently and quickly. The company dubbed the little drone “ UAM”, which stands for “ Urban Air Mobility”. Their goal in this little invention is to travel easier and more efficiently through dense cities like New York. NASA is also developing an Aero Taxi which is part of the urban mobility project. This Taxi is used to take passengers above populated areas. NASA estimated that in 2030, over fifty million flights to deliver packages and over 750 million flights for “ Air Metro Services.” in the future.
NASA is planning to launch the mars rover in 2020 this coming summer. The Mars rover has special equipment and is one of the most expensive pieces of machinery to be launched and is planning to be sent to space in the summer of 2020. The rover is planned to be landed in a crater and take pictures for research. According to NASA “In 2024 the big space company wants to send the first woman into space”. This company’s inventions are creating and shaping the future for space launches and mechanical work.
NASA has many space trips and sometimes they need something to help beforehand. That’s why they are developing a plan and named it “Deep Space Atomic Clock.” This little invention helps them predict and helps navigate for space missions ahead of time. According to NASA, they are also working on a city air-bus. It has four seats and is multi-copter and is going to be used for urban transportation. Going back to the topic around sending the first woman to space, but she isn’t working alone in this mission, they are sending a man and woman to the moon for the first time in almost five decades. NASA is an expanding company and is shaping and creating the way we live, work and wonder about what’s in space. This company is breaking barriers and will continue to do so, I’m sure of in the future.
