    What are the most important issues we have now in space exploration area? As we can see now space explorations are developing very rapidly and by doing this, it causes a lot of issues to solve. Humans have a lot of stuff to figure out to get closer to particular purpose and which one do you consider is the most important and must be solved the first?

    Hmmm, never thought of that but there are probably few the most important ones, unless I misunderstood the question. :D

    1. Prolonged weightlessness effects on human body
    2. Psychological problems being in isolation for long periods of time
    3. Financing, space exploration is very expensive, some rich companies might monopolize it and dictate their terms affecting the direction of trends

    I`d like to say that another big issue for space exploration is space junk. Actually, it's not dangerous for humans on Earth but as I have already mentioned it's rather dangerous for spacecraft and for space companies who's spacecraft can collide and be damaged by space junk and whole mission can be under threat.

    The growing number of space items can lead to what is known as the ‘Kessler syndrome’, which represents a state where the object density is so high that one collision is enough to generate a cascade effect, leading to further collisions.

    Actually, there is a way out from that issue. Some space companies from diffecrent countries are going to make so called cleaning mission that is about to clean Earth`s orbit from space junk. The Clearspace-1 satellite, or ‘The Claw’, represents the first step towards a clean space environment by being the first space debris removal dedicated mission.

    First of all, we need to find out if some forms of life or other civilization exist. Yeah, we can presume that alians or other civilization exist, however, we don`t know that for sure and as far as I know, we do not have direct evidences.

    Yup, aliens are still a myth. Most scientists are still looking for valid evidence on it.

    You may consider my reply a bit off-topic, but it's connected to space exploration, although not directly. What do you think about the monopoly of well-known space agencies, such as NASA, JAXA, ESA? I mean that e don't hear about young endeavors because all newsfeed is full of updates from these companies. Sometimes I even think they're afraid of competition. Guys, how many young space endeavors do you know? Can you tell at least a few names? I couldn't either, but recently I started to think about this problem and decided to devote my time to finding information about such companies and sharing it with people.
    Have you ever heard that South Africa has a company called Dragonfly Aerospace, that develops high-resolution imagers for satellites? Moreover, it's not just a space endeavor. Recently, I saw the title Dragonfly to Deliver an Imager for Loft Orbital, and it greatly interested me. After reading this article I found out that this company is a promising imagery manufacturer that already cooperates with satellite launchers. It's worth a lot I think.

    Yes, I`ve heard about this company and read an article about this space company. I know that it manufactures microsatellites that are used for observing the land and for some agricultural purposes
