NASA Dropped a Mixtape to Recap 2016's Biggest Space Achievements

Jay Serafino

To catch you up on the biggest space discoveries, observations, and milestones from 2016, NASA has compiled a "Best Of" mixtape of all the biggest achievements from the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

This mixtape looks at some of the year's most notable stories, both here on Earth and out in space, such as the OSIRIS-REx launch and the discovery that the observable universe contains 10 times more galaxies than we had initially thought. If you crave even more knowledge than NASA's mixtape offers, the agency also has an expansive look back at 2016 on its website, going much more in-depth on subjects like possible water plumes on Europa and the dramatic shifts in Earth's weather.

With all of the articles, videos, and eye-popping images to check out, NASA's year in review should be more than enough to catch you up on 2016. It also sets the groundwork for more discoveries to come in 2017.
