Space exploration is the use of astronomy and space technology to explore outer space. While the study of space is carried out mainly by astronomers with telescopes, its physical exploration though is conducted both by unmanned robotic space probes and human spaceflight. While the observation of objects in space, known as astronomy, predates Missions in Space book recorded history, it.

Some space mission showed us just how far the human race can go, while others made us feel the depths of our sorrow. The crews and crafts involved in these remarkable space missions made great.
