Space. The final frontier is in our grasp now more than ever.

In the last fifty years, we’ve put a man into orbit, set foot on the moon, launched countless satellites into orbit and beyond. We’ve learned more about planets within our solar system and celestial bodies outside of its gravitational pull. NASA, JAXA, ESA and Roscosmos inspire new generations to explore space with every successful mission and newly completely equipment.  With the help of private space companies Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic, SpaceX and others pave the way for the dawn of a new space race. Where will we boldly go next? What have we already accomplished? Where will the future of space travel take us?

Still not convinced that space is exciting? This article about space exploration might just inspire you.  Check back here for the latest news in space exploration or catch up on the latest intel from the Juno Mission today.
