This is a vast section in which you can find information on space exploration from the past, present, and future. You can find out what the ancient Chinese knew about comets, or discover why names like Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler, and Stephen Hawking are important in astronomy. Herein also lies information on spacecraft such as the Pioneers, Voyagers, Galileo, Cassini, and Mars Global Surveyor, to name a few. Or if you are more interested in what will come, the Near Future section discusses planned missions and developing technologies from several different space programs.
