As the years pass and science and technology advance we see more and more missions launched that harness these leaps forward to expand our knowledge of space. As we head into 2019 things are no different, with a number of exciting launches planned over the year. This year a rise in commercial launches is highlighted with both unmanned and
manned test flights planned by Boeing and SpaceX.
