2018 is a year in which another giant leap for mankind may be made. Civil space travel is closer to becoming reality than it seems. The likes of the world’s richest – Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates – are all involved.
SpaceX, Elon Musk’s space enterprise, plans to fly two passengers around the moon in 2018. This would be the first private enterprise to take mankind to space, nearly 45 years after NASA completed the first and only circumlunar Apollo 8 mission.
As billions pour in, the space travel industry is a rapidly evolving landscape to keep your eyes on.
