"Science in space. Summary of major scientific research activities"
Over 100 orbital rocket launches are carried out in the world every year. Most of them send commercial payloads to orbit. Some of these missions, however, have scientific objectives. This presentation will cover
the latest science space missions and provide some details on the biggest projects currently being conducted: International Space Station research, preparations for the first in 50 years crewed Moon missions and Mars exploration. We will also look into the nearest future and see what will be the biggest objectives for space exploration in the coming decades and how the Polish space sector fits into this
