The first step of the mission is to send the Mars Orbiter Mission to Mars and launch it in 2021, and then a second mission is due in 2022, but no one knows when or where the next mission will take place. 

In 2019, the Space Telescope Science Institute is set to launch a pair of telescopes, the Kelvin 1 and the Kepler 2, which will use a new technology to study the first two stars to be born on the surface of Mars.

The mission’s launch will be delayed due to a technical issue, but the telescope is scheduled to launch in 2024. 

In 2020, the US National Science Foundation announces a $1.7bn competition to develop a device that will help people with mental health problems to communicate with loved ones and others on Earth. 

By 2021, scientists have already begun working on a series of technologies that will enable humans to travel to Mars on a robotic spacecraft.

In 2018, the European Space Agency announces a contract with the Chinese company Nanjing University to develop an interplanesharing system that will be able to provide internet connectivity to the International Space Station for up to seven months in 2021. 

Around the same time, the UK and China sign an agreement to establish a partnership to develop robotic and robotic-assisted missions to the Moon and to Mars. 

As 2020 unfolds, we look at what is going on with the scientific community, the government and the private sector.

We explore the implications of this exciting time and look forward to seeing what the next 50 years bring.
