As 2019 draws to a close the Space Adventures’ team would like to wish you all the best for the holiday season and a prosperous year ahead.
This year marked global celebrations of the 50th anniversary of one of the world’s greatest accomplishments – the successful Apollo 11 mission that allowed Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to become the first humans to walk on the Moon.
But 2019 marked its own achievement with the first all-female spacewalk – NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Jessica Meir became the first two women to venture outside into space together.
2020 promises to be an exciting year with both SpaceX and Boeing scheduled to fly crew to space, plus NASA is scheduled to launch a new Mars rover in the summer.
We thought we would take a moment to look back in history and share some images of other great achievements involving humans in space.
