Space has never been more crowded than it is today. The 21st century, particularly the past decade, has seen a transformative expansion in space activities throughout the world. Commercial companies are rapidly growing the space economy and helping to reignite the public’s curiosity about our solar system. More nations are establishing new space agencies. Humans are preparing to return to the Moon for the first time in a half-century and laying the groundwork to continue onward to Mars. Humanity’s drive to explore links our organizations and missions. The spirit to live and work in low-Earth orbit and explore well beyond where we have ventured before will be decided by global partnerships over the coming decades.
