In the last decade, we’ve encountered different changes and witnessed new discoveries in our outer space. New habitable exoplanets have been discovered; we’ve seen the rise of a new push to visit the moon and we’ve also had a closer photo view of Pluto as well as the first real photo of a black hole. With many of these activities going on, we can confidently say that space hasn’t been entirely quiet. This is why we’ve created a community where you’re welcomed to share your fascination with outer space.

The space community is a platform of like minds who have an interest in the latest missions and discoveries from the final frontier. Here you’ll have the opportunity to share, discuss and analyze with like minds, your fascination and all the information you have about the space and the physics behind it. It’s also an opportunity for you to learn from others and be exposed to new information, have your simple topic of a microscopic discovery breathlessly discussed and expanded for you to see the new possibilities.

Participating in the Space community will open your mind to new perspectives from other people’s contributions. It will let you see how a small piece of information can make you see the natural world differently.

The space community features posts and topics from participants containing information from other trusted sites they would like to share, discuss further with like minds to get more insight and various perspectives on the topic. It also avails you and other participants the opportunity to comment on posts, share different views and also ask questions that could spark another conversation while getting your questions answered.
