Hear It: NASA Just Dropped The Hottest Mixtape In The Game

NASA does not care for your concept of holidays or your pop culture year-end lists. Because while you were celebrating with friends and family, NASA quietly dropped the hottest mixtape of last year.

In truth, the “mixtape” is more a compilation video from the Goddard Space Flight Center, a NASA branch dedicated to spacecraft technologies and developing knowledge of our known universe. Some of their fire “tracks” included learning that the universe contains 10 times more galaxies than previously thought and NASA launched their first asteroid-sampling mission.

If these type of sweet beats interest you, NASA has an in-depth report of all their major events in 2016. These include further documenting the startling shifts in Earth’s weather and mapping the gravitational fields of Mars.

So despite super scientific reports to the contrary, perhaps 2016 wasn’t the worst year ever in the grand scheme of things.

All this, however, wasn’t the only major events that involved space exploration this past year. The Pale Red Project and European Southern Observatory also discovered a possibly new habitable planet for humans, called Proxima b. (We just hoped humans didn’t screw it up.) Additionally, humans from all over the globe watched the historic supermoon of 2016, though some were more creative than others with their viewing experiences. And who could forget those pumpkins NASA carved?

This latest mixtape also wasn’t the only record involving NASA released this year. The Voyager Golden Record—sent as emissary to document Earth sounds aboard Voyager I and II—was finally made available to the public, following decades of being one of the most exclusive records in existence. (Only 12 copies were ever made.)

If this is all space exploration had to offer in 2016, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2017.
