Before the notorious space race between the United States and the Soviet Union was in full swing, exploring outer space helped provide us with a ton of new information about the universe we live in. One astronaut named Gordon Cooper came across an interesting discovery, but he kept it a secret. NASA sponsored a mission, and Gordon Cooper was chosen for the project.
While he was in outer space, Cooper’s job was to collect valuable information regarding how our galaxy works. He was fascinated with the universe. As he was orbiting our planet, he noticed something mysterious on the earth’s surface. He continued his investigation when he came back to Earth. However, he kept his discovery a secret for about five decades only for it to finally be exposed.
Check out what Gordon Cooper saw while he was floating in outer space.
