The "projectile" passes through the space and takes photos when the target is amplified from a safe distance. It can be guided to a relatively small degree, but it is often far from approaching the accuracy required by most spacecraft to enter the orbit around the far moon. Scientists are unable to carry out the necessary calculations.

NASA has developed its new method, the Galactic Positioning system, using a telescope composed of neutron stars on board the International Space Station.It uses this special telescope to observe foggy radiation through space.Surround pulsar

Zaven Arzoumanian, a NASA scientist, said:

You can get into orbit by making a difficult job around a satellite on a distant planet, not a flying skimming. The Galactic positioning system can also provide a backup, so that if a crew task is out of contact with the earth, they still have autonomous navigation systems.

This system can make Mars manned space flight a reality, even paving the way for the task of continuing to explore the galaxy.
