Factor Magazine 16: The future of life in space

In this issue we look at how space exploration is ramping up to produce a reality where people actually live in space.

From planned missions to Mars to technological and conceptual advances produced by the commercialisation of space, we look at how space travel is progressing beyond the world of governments.

We also ask if a return to the Moon is on the horizon, and speak to Astronaut James F Reilly about what it’s like to leave Earth.
