Modern Space Travel

Modern day space travel is much less prevalent in today’s society than it was in the past, but is still being advanced upon with new projects and technology being made today.
Due to congress being unable to come up with a proper budget for NASA, there is much less involvement from NASA. Many of the technologies being developed today are by private exploration companies such as SpaceX, which has made its own capsule and has made runs to the International Space Station. In terms of going to space NASA has relied on the Russians for use of their space capabilities.
Many new projects are underway such as a return to the moon and getting a man to an asteroid and Mars.
