  • On Dec. 10, 1977, the Soviet union launched the first crew to complete a long-duration mission to the Salyut 6 space station. Salyut 6 was a small space station that launched without a crew three months earlier. Another cosmonaut crew was supposed to be the first to visit this space station, but they couldn't get their Soyuz spacecraft to dock, and the mission was aborted. The second cosmonaut crew blasted off two months after that little mishap, and they were able to dock with the space station the next day. The two cosmonauts, Yuri Romanenko and Georgi Grechko, spent 96 days in orbit before safely returning to Earth. More: https://buff.ly/2L8dw1F

  • On Dec. 3, 2014, Japan launched the Hayabusa2 spacecraft on a mission to fetch a sample from an asteroid. The asteroid is named 162173 Ryugu, but it's also known as 1999 JU3. Hayabusa2 lifted off from the Tanegashima Space Center on a Japanese H-IIA rocket. It arrived at the asteroid three and a half years later.  Hayabusa2 brought along four small rovers to drop on the asteroid's surface. More: https://buff.ly/2BQ0brT

  • On November 29, 1969, the first Australian satellite launched. It was called the Weapons Research Establishment Satellite. The satellite lifted off from the Woomera Test Range in south Australia. It weighed almost 100 pounds, and circled Earth from pole to pole. The mission made Australia the seventh nation to reach space. The United States had brought 10 Redstone rockets to Australia for a series of test flights. But they only ended up using nine of them. Instead of shipping the last Redstone back, they offered it to Australia, who then used it to launch their satellite. In the last few decades, Australia has launched several more satellites. Australia is also famous for its radio astronomy work, which is another valuable contribution to space science. More: https://buff.ly/2TW0HM1
