SPACE EXPLORATION
Humans have always looked into the sky and wondered about what lies beyond the Earth. For many, their curiosity stops there. Others dream of journeying into space, exploring the Moon, landing on Mars, or travelling to distant Stars. The dream of space travel and exploration turned to reality in the 20th century. The first practical steps were at the start of the century, as rockets were developed to escape the gravity shield of home-planet Earth. In 1961, the first person, Yuri Gagarin, reached space. By the end of the century, thousands of Spacecrafts and hundreds of space travelers had been launched into space. For many, the dream continues. A new generation of space travelers ants to go further, stay longer, and learn more about Space.
