Abstract:

The United States has NASA and a very effective fleet of shuttles to launch their astronauts into space. They even have the Delta class vehicles to transport smaller cargo into space. The Russians rely upon their Scion rockets to launch their cosmonauts into orbit; and their Proton vehicles for the lesser cargo. The Europeans, not well-known for their forays into space, still have their family of Arian shuttles to take cargo to the Space Station, and are planning manned missions as well. Even countries such as China, Japan and India are getting in on the Space Race, with their own shuttles and launch capabilities. It seems that the two world powers are no longer the only nations with viable space programs. The rest of the world is starting to catch up!
