Before reaching the launch sites of spaceports, many of the concepts of these missions were formulated and articulated at international NewSpace conferences. Take a look at the most exciting space conferences and symposiums to keep an eye on in 2023.
A revolution is taking place in orbit: the first mega constellations of satellites are being created; private spacecraft are carrying people, and the prospect of commercial orbital stations no longer seems unreal. So let’s try to imagine what may await Earth orbit in the near future.
In the spring of 2022 astronomers confirmed the existence of the 5,000th exoplanet. This is, of course, only the beginning, as reports on the discovery of new extrasolar worlds appear almost every day. We will talk about what are exoplanets, and how do scientists find them.
Many missions of both national and commercial significance are expected to be launched in 2023. Some will showcase brand new types of reentry super heavy-lift rockets, while others will be a breakthrough in exploring the solar system. We have selected the most exciting space missions in 2023.
Russian missiles have caused many nations to start thinking about creating a powerful, multi-layered space-based missile defense architecture using Earth Observation (EO). Early-warning missile threat satellites are the first part of this large effort to detect missile launches.
The 20th century was largely a space age, despite the breakthroughs it brought in science, medicine, and engineering. The creation of liquid fuel rockets made it possible to overcome gravity and launch the first spacecraft into orbit, land on the Moon, and the International Space Station (ISS).
Wanting to regain their former positions, the national space agencies of Europe and private aerospace companies began to work on strengthening Europe’s staying power orbit and creating their own infrastructure for space launches – new spaceports.
By the middle of the 20th century, the computational capabilities of computers and a deep theoretical understanding of the processes occurring at the cellular level would allow humanity to decipher the secrets of the genome, and by the end of the century – to clone the first mammals.
The first half of the 20th century was marked by the rapid development of medicine in the field of fighting infectious disease. Also the study of radioactivity – the process of decay of the atomic nucleus, the study of which would allow people to extract colossal amounts of energy.
In the first part we talked about the three most important space missions of the passing 2022. In this piece, we will digress from the missions that have already happened to focus our attention on analyzing the main trends in the space industry in 2023.
