People Going To Space

This past year we saw some incredible steps toward finally getting into space. The private companies, SpaceX and Virgin Galatic have made some impressive progress toward normal space travel, Notably with the dragon space craft docking with the international space station and the their new reusable rocket system. Again not traveling to other planet but a big step. This past year NASA also put on one of the greatest shows with their Curiosity rover, Landing on Mars.
It has been a great year for space travel. Here is looking forward to another very exciting year.
