All About Space’s round-up of stargaz­ing spec­ta­cles, mis­sion and rocket launches

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. Com­mer­cial space travel will change the way we ex­plore the uni­verse and lead us down the path of mak­ing space more ac­ces­si­ble, so its devel­op­ment is im­per­a­tive. For astron­omy fans there’s plenty in store too, with me­teor show­ers year round and the four gi­ant plan­ets com­ing to op­po­si­tion. Here’s what to look out for over the next 12 months.
