Standing in 2021, I must say there have been tremendous advancement in terms of space technology! To mention some –
Airbus have been testing a prototype of the Starliner spacecraft, which will transport astronauts from earth to space. This will hopefully replace the space shuttle fleet that ended last year.
Virgin Galactic’s new VSS Unity craft is about to take its first pilots into space before releasing them on a sub-orbital flight – it is hoped they will be able to break the speed of sound and descent back to earth.
