Private space travel was illegal until 2004. Making private space travel
legal expanded ways to learn more about our solar system and explore it.
Now that Earth is running out of natural resources we start paying
attention to space. There is still a lot to explore and find out about the
solar system and there could possibly be new and improved resources on
other planets and such. There is a chance that there could be multiple
undiscovered resources in space. The tools to explore space have
improved over the years. It started with a telescope, which was one of the
earliest tools for space exploration. Since the late 2000's scientists have
been able to do many experiments in the low-Earth orbit.
The first orbiting space station is called the International Space Station (ISS).
The ISS is meant for long term visits from astronauts from different
countries. The different things that scientists will learn from the ISS will be a
huge stepping stone on the way, sending humans on manned missions to
further than before. As time goes on and on hopefully scientists will learn
more and more about our universe and be creating tools to explore the
depths of space.
