Nasa : Satellite sent into space in 1984

The Earth Radiation Budget Satellite, known as ERBS, was launched by the spacecraft in 1984.  He was working for two years. The satellite continued to collect data on ozone and other atmospheric pollutants until it was retired in 2005. The satellite studied how the Earth absorbs and radiates energy from the Sun.  

Sally Ride, America’s first woman in space, launched the space shuttle into orbit using a robotic arm. It was during this space mission that an astronaut named Katherine Sullivan performed a spacewalk. This was the first spacewalk by an American woman. It was the first time two female astronauts flew together in space. 

As reports, a NASA satellite may enter Earth’s atmosphere on Sunday, January 8. According to NASA officials, the US military estimates that ERBS will return to Earth around 6:40 p.m. Sunday. Many times in the past, satellite debris has fallen on Earth from space. But, it did not pose any danger. It has been said by NASA that there is no danger to Earth due to the satellite falling on Sunday.
