How solar power stations in orbit could become a reality in the coming decades.
Humans have been living on the International Space Station for two full decades. So what comes next for this ailing technology, and what does it mean for future International ventures in space?
After two decades as a home to astronauts, the International Space Station still has plenty to teach us about how humans can live away from Earth.
Extreme velocities and temperatures makes the return flight to Earth the most perilous part of a space mission.
A new country launches a mission to Mars. A space expert explains what this means for the Middle East and the African continent.
