The 90-year-old star of the Star Trek TV series, a childhood cancer survivor, and a Japanese entrepreneur. They are among the 29 civilians who have traveled into space in 2021. Some are calling the year the advent of the new age of space travel. Private companies are behind this sudden boom, with the global space business on course to become a trillion-dollar industry within the next few decades. We take a look at the latest in civilian space travel and talk to an astronaut about what changes the "new space age" will bring to society.
