From time immemorial, the great beyond has fascinated man. What lies beyond our planets boundaries, how far does the universe stretch, these questions have driven scientists for centuries. From Galileo in 1610, who first observed the outer limits, to the first rocket to reach the edge of space in 1946, to the first spacecraft to pass beyond all planets in 1983, it’s been a long, empowering journey.
