Today we are going to make a short analysis about the development of the space technologies and more specifically we will give some specific information about the number of the people who has travelled to the world up to now. When we look at the history of the world we can see that the people are always the curious about the space and the places that they don’t know and they haven’t get the enough information and as a result of this situation the people want to discover the places that they don’t know.

By planes people can fly wherever they want in a short time and again as a result of those technology the space technology also developed too much extent and the people start to travel to the space and it seems that if the rapid development of the technology will be continued the people will do the better things and maybe it can be impossible to believe to those developments in the future. Today when we look at the whole world, we can see that NASA is one of the most popular and one of the most important instituon for the development of the space sciences. From the different countries of the world, there are lots of the different people who are working in the NASA in order to discover the new things and also in order to make it possible to develop the space sciences. It can be easily said that reaching to the space is not only very dangerous on the other hand it is very difficult but with the perfect structure of the brain of the people and the hard studying of the people it is almost becoming very easy to do this and when we look at the history of the world we can see that there are lots of the people who have reach the space. In accordance with the researches and statistics, there are 533 people who reach the space up to now and it seems that in the future with the rapid development of the technology there will be lots of the people who will reach to the space.
