Vision for space exploration

Julian Portelli

December 8, 2013

I feel that the next big steps in human exploration of space are in the making as other countries like China and India join the race to the Moon and Mars. While the US will continue with its ambitious Mars programe, it seems to be relying more and more on private enterprise to explore the Moon. Better equipped telescopes will further push exoplanetary science forward. It will allow us to study exoplanetary atmospheres from Earth and help identify chemical make up of atmospheres and hence explore possibilities of life elsewhere in the universe.
