2022 Could Be A Big Year For Space Exploration

CAPE CANAVERAL, FL - JUNE 03: In this handout provided by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, with the Dragon spacecraft onboard, launches from pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center on June 3, 2017 in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Dragon is carrying almost 6,000 pounds of science research, crew supplies and hardware to the International Space Station in support of the Expedition 52 and 53 crew members. The unpressurized trunk of the spacecraft also will transport solar panels, tools for Earth-observation and equipment to study neutron stars. This will be the 100th launch, and sixth SpaceX launch, from this pad. Previous launches include 11 Apollo flights, the launch of the unmanned Skylab in 1973, 82 shuttle flights and five SpaceX launches. (Photo by Bill Ingalls/NASA via Getty Images)

2021 was a big year for space travel – and 2022 could be even bigger.

A number of major developments in space exploration will arrive next year – including tests flights for NASA’s Artemis program, which hopes to return humans to the moon by the year 2025.

Other developments include the just-launched James Webb Space Telescope, the most powerful ever built.

And of course, we’ll see more billionaire space flights from the likes of Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin and Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic – along with the debut of Boeing’s new Starliner spacecraft.

Why the sudden boom in space travel?  Would you want to travel to space one day?
