I recently read this article at The Washington Post’s website: http://www.washingtonpost.com/sf/national/2013/11/23/which-way-to-space/

When you come to think of it – although there are exciting things going on for the Space industry even today – the magnitude and number has been dropping off significantly over the last few decades. But this represents that we are on the brink of something greater than what has ever happened before – with so much effort pitching in to keep the Space Age alive. Do give the article to read to see what all has been going on. Cheers!
