@otter2019:matrix.orgotter2020 Since the 1960s, many missions have been sent to Mars, and about half have failed. Of those, only four organizations have had successful missions: the US space program, the Russian space program, the European Union's space program, and India's space program. Missions from other countries, including Japan and China, have all failed. 00:11:01

The European Space Agency’s Solar Orbiter probe just made its first close approach of the Sun, getting within 77 million kilometers (47.8 million miles) of the star’s surface — about half the distance between Earth and the Sun.

During its approach, it snapped the closest images of the Sun ever captured — which will be released in mid-July, according to a statement.

@otter2019:matrix.orgotter2020 The researchers also say that whether we are alone in the galaxy depends on how long the civilizations survive. If civilizations like our own — which has only been sending signals into space for about 100 years — don't survive very long, it is possible that we are the only civilization within our galaxy. 00:10:21

With fewer people flying because of the coronavirus, some airports are finding new ways to be useful.

London's Heathrow Airport has been used to store medical supplies, while part of Istanbul's Ataturk Airport has become a hospital for coronavirus patients. The parking lot at Scotland's Glasgow Airport has been used for drive-thru coronavirus testing.

Vilnius Airport in Lithuania turned its tarmac into a drive-in movie theater, and Stuttgart Airport in Germany turned one of its check-in halls into a one-person concert venue, where a single person could listen to a professional performance.
