A new golden age of space travel is dawning, one that will soon give humans an astronomical view of the world and may eventually allow us to leave Earth and begin life on another planet. See how the space race has expanded from a competition between governments to a commercial enterprise funded by today’s most successful billionaires. From space tourism to plans to colonize Mars, billionaire entrepreneurs like Jeff Bezos, Sir Richard Branson and Elon Musk hope to radically transform our future—and make money doing it.
In just half a century, the human population has doubled to 7.4 billion, and during that time, astronaut and satellite photos have been capturing the startling changes on our planet.
