Spacetime 55 y

Sputnik: first satellite Okt.1957
Gagarins flight Apr. 1961
Moon walks 1969 -
Hubble Space Telescope April 1990, and many other space probes at different times.
International Space Station done 2011
Use on the earth for many purposes from 1962 until like: Weather-, TV-, GPS-, etc. satellites

What next 50 y ?
I estimate. The present tasks will increase, and if the World will be ok., then:
1. Base in the Moon ?
2. The Spaceliner: The risk money is considerably needed and a fair skillful producer, big corporation and international co-operation.
3. Mars journeys and manned flights to near asteroids and to Phobos.
4. Turism flights around inner planets
5. Large telescopes and other instruments in the Lagrangian points
6. Steady live in space
7. Small-scale industrial and food production in space
8. The cleaning in near space with Haavi Electronic telescope
9. Electronic telescope: Coming charges will be bend to the focus
by (high-temperature) superconducting magnetic field in space (L2).
10. Fluoroscopy of Earth and Sun by neutrinos?
11. Gravity wave instruments in space?
12. Nuclear warming capsule with laboratory will push We search exrta-terrestial life for understanding 
mystery of life  in the universethrough ice in moon
Europa of Jupiter (and in other moons; perhaps of Saturn, even dwarf planet Eris)
leaving the information cable line after. The link and link mast are on the surface
of ice. Below the ice the head will stop and be disconnect. The capsule will get
down slowly and stop, perhaps get up too. Infection will be very serious problem.

Landing on Europa (See pictures 12.)
13. Next 100y: The capsule will get up to the surface of ice in moon Europa
with the hot head after disconnecting a ballast and by tractor drums. A rocket
(perhaps mini-rocket) will bring the speciments to Earth via Jupiter.

Next Earthquake and Tsunamis
