I'm sure many of us are curious as to what will be next when it comes to exploring space. Well I've found some answers that are reasonable, believable, and exciting. Anything from unmanned projects, to manned projects, ranging from the moon out into deep space.

I hope people enjoy reading this stuff, and take time to realize how far we've come.

Space Future: 2

Probably the most interesting link so far...
Space Future: 3

Thanks for the share.

I for one am disappointed we haven't already colonized Mars. Instead of advancing humanity we are stuck on this rock fighting over meaningless things.

The first link seems up to date but the other two links have cancelled projects on them.

The James Webb Space Telescope will be a great tool for astronomers but it may not be as exciting as Hubble for the rest of us with its infrared design, but there's a nice illustration of it in the first link.

I don't know how successful the "Spaceport America" in the first link will be. I suppose it depends on how many will shell out $200,000 for a ride. I know quite a few people who would rather buy a house with that amount, or at least make a big down payment. I'm sure rich people can afford it but will that be enough?

Enjoyed those links and the information shared.

I believe the 200k pricetag to enter the lower reaches of space to experience 6 minutes of no-gravity will only be afforded to the rich and elite. But as competition and commercialism of Space continues, the price will surely go down.

Still very interesting to see the projects for the future.

interesting time lines. although i would think a space elevator would be one of the first things that would be worked on once we have the proper materials fully worked out (carbon nanotubes) since after the inital price of building the thing the cost of getting into space will drop by a huge amount since a majority of the price tag is fuel related
