Fifty years ago Apollo 11 traveled home after a historic landing on the Moon home to a worldwide recognition.
Less than four years later the public interest fell, the political and financial reality started, and NASA slowed down its last three lunar missions.
But today, space travel is on the agenda again. Although British technology and expertise are at the forefront, we do not have our own plans to go into infinity and wider.
Here expert Colin Stuart looks at who is leading the 21st century space race.
Ten years ago, the Indian probe Chandrayaan-1 Nasa defeated the first to discover the water on the Moon.
Chandrayaan-2 should start today. Rover will scan the surface of the Moon for 15 days and look for more evidence of water.
Success would only make India the fourth nation, the US, the Soviets, and China to land on the Moon. By 2024, India intends to travel to Mars.
But it's not just sending machines. The first Indian astronaut in 38 years could go into orbit in 2022.
Rakesh Sharma was the first – at the Soviet space station Salyut 7 in 1984.
The Japanese Space Agency, along with Toyota, joined the Moon car. A two-piece dream machine could be ready by 2029.
The vast solar collectors would give him a distance of 6,000 miles and under the pressure of the cabin would mean that the astronauts would not have to carry chests. Japan also creates the history of the universe elsewhere.
Last month, his Hayabusa-2 probe landed two small bots on the Ryugu asteroid near Earth, which was 180 million miles away.
The vessel will return samples to Earth this year to allow scientists to study.
The Soviets first set up a human orbit – Yuri Gagarin in 1961 – but Russia is trying to find its place in a new space race.
It is developing a new powerful Soyuz-5 rocket, which could be ready by 2022. Russia continues to work with the Americans on the ISS, but could look to China if it continues with the key steps.
Construction work has almost been completed on Cosmodrome Vostochny, a space port far east.
They will replace their current launching system, which they are forced to lease from Kazakhstan.
CHINA has huge ambitions in space. Last week, they allowed the Tiangong-2 space station to burn over the Pacific after three years in orbit.
The Tianhe-1 module will start next year. This is the first part of a live satellite that could compete with the International Space Station.
In January, China landed on the first rover on the far side of the Moon. On board, there were cotton seeds that accumulated in plants.
China does not hide its mission to accept "taikonauts" on the moon. They can even do this before the Americans.
WHERE they see the stars, others see the signs of the dollar. Amazon chief Jeff Bezos, Tesla boss Elon Musk and Sir Richard Branson of their own space travel companies, which will soon offer players the opportunity to gamble a huge leap. Prices will start with a quarter of a million dollars.
The plans were not smooth. SpaceShipTwo Virgin's chief Branson broke up in 2014 when he killed the co-pilot.
Now he hopes to carry out several test flights this autumn. Passengers will see that the sky colored in the daylight and experience weightlessness.
We are also talking about the colonization of Mars as an alternative home for humanity since 2024.
A mosque that returns money to its space rockets says it wants to die on a red planet.
No one left his footprint in the moon dust since 1972. It may not be too long until it changes – with these Americans again.
NASA's Artemis program hopes that the astronauts will return to the moon by 2024.
Last week, US Vice President Mike Pence revealed the design of the Orion capsule that will wear them there.

The mission is likely to include the first female astronaut to go to the moon.
Then there is the project "Gateway" – the living units that circulate around the Moon. Astronomers can manage robots on the surface in their lunar space from home.
Both missions will be a good practice for sending the first people to Mars in the 1930s.
