In remembrance of the date of September 11 this year, NASA shared the satellite image of the demolition of the Twin Towers of New York’s World Trade Center. This year was the 21st anniversary of the dastard 9/11 terror attacks by Al-Qaeda. On this occasion, Nasa’s satellite image of the 9/11 attack stirred the horrific memory of the incident that occurred 21 years ago.

What did NASA’s image show exactly?

Astronaut Frank Culbertson captured NASA’s satellite image of the 9/11 attack. It disclosed massive plumes of smoke coming out from Manhattan just after the two planes struck the Twin Towers.

NASA on Sunday shared the image on Twitter to mark the 21st anniversary of that terrible attack. With that image, the US space agency added the note, calling the attack a national tragedy in the country that resulted in the tragic loss of numerous lives and a substantial change in American culture. It also added that people pause to mark the day they could never forget every year.

In a separate press note, NASA shared the words of astronaut Culbertson who was onboarding the International Space Station when the attacks occurred. He was the only representative from America among the crew.

To him, the image appeared to have some unusual blooms on the camera. Later on, when he read one of the news articles, he understood that they were viewing New York at the time of the terror attacks or shortly after the downfall of the second tower.

How did the American President mark the anniversary of 9/11?

On Sunday, US President Joe Biden laid a wreath at the Pentagon to commemorate the 21st anniversary of the 9/11 attack.

As the somber remembrance held under steady rain, the President addressed the country, saying that although the attacks changed the American story from that day, the nation’s character would never change as the nation’s character represents sacrifice and love, strength and resilience, generosity and grace .
