Happy New Year! May the year bring peace and good tidings to us all.
As we start the new year, check out the great photo taken from the International Space Station (ISS) of the Moon and an approaching spacecraft - a Soyuz - bearing new crew members.
There will be more Falcon Space-X missions to ISS as well as more crew transfers. Next year NASA will be closer to restoring its own manned spaceflight capability with the first test flight of the Orion spacecraft.
The Moon beckons us to return - China will land taikonauts there within the next 20 years. Will the U.S. and others do so as well?
