The History of Space Exploration — Infographic

The History of Space Exploration

I absolutely love space and space exploration, so this infographic is right up my alley.  As described by the creator, Pop Chart Lab:

From the Luna 2 in 1959 to the DSCOVR in 2015, this color-coded chart traces the trajectories of every orbiter, lander, rover, flyby, and impactor to ever slip the surly bonds of Earth’s orbit and successfully complete its mission—a truly astronomical array of over 100 exploratory instruments in all.

This chart will keep you busy for a long time, tracing the flight paths of some of the most famous, and least known exploratory spacecraft humans have sent to space. Make sure you click the enlarged image to take in the details! [VIA]
