The two robots have been lost for over a month and have flown so profound into space that NASA will be not able contact them. Nicknamed ‘EVE’ and ‘WALL-E’ it is thought the shuttle are presently a large number of miles past Mars. In spite of losing contact with the two rocket, NASA still considers the mission a total accomplishment as they could at present converse with them in spite of being so deep in space.

The mission’s chief engineer, Andy Flesh said: “This mission was always about pushing the limits of miniaturised technology and seeing just how far it could take us.

“We’ve put a stake in the ground. Future CubeSats might go even farther.”

NASA additionally demanded that the mission had enhanced ideas that would enable different missions to go further into space.

By and large known as MarCO, the pair propelled a year ago and were simply a speculative mission to check whether they could work in profound space.

The two followed NASA’s past Mars aircraft, InSight which contacted down on the red planet around the New Year.

EVE and WALL-E were utilized to ferry communications from InSight and helped beam information once more from the rover.

WALL-E additionally sent back the first amazing pictures of Mars while EVE likewise gathered radio information.

After their work around Mars, the two rocket proceeded into profound space.

The last message got from either robot was on January 4 and NASA trust that the two are a million to two million miles from Mars.

It is obscure what caused why the pair have lost touch with NASA.

They will keep on fly away from Earth as February goes on which implies getting information much progressively troublesome.

NASA presently plan to utilize the innovation for further ventures with John Baker, MarCO program manager concluding that there is “big potential” in the small packages.
