There is increased interest, once again, in space and space exploration along with a forward look toward a new, revitalized and vibrant space age. 

The main goal of space exploration is threefold: to advance the development of scientific research while letting us prove or disprove scientific theories; to connect different countries with shared objectives and to foster common goals; and to safeguard the survival of humanity for a long time.  To these ends, the majority of ongoing space-related research is conducted using ground-based telescopes by astronomers. Physical exploration, itself,  is conducted by humans during spaceflight and also uses unmanned robotic space probes that reduce possible risks to humans.  We can explore the solar system, the universe, and observed phenomena.
