In the six decades since the birth of the space age in 1957, our understanding of the Universe and our place in it has been transformed by discoveries that were only possible through opportunities presented through space exploration and space-based astronomy. But what do we mean by “space science”? What difference has space science made to human society and why do we spend so much on it with so many terrestrial challenges facing us? What do astronauts actually do in Low Earth Orbit? And what are the science opportunities and reality behind the bold missions of human exploration of the Moon and beyond being planned by NASA , ESA, China and other nations?
