We are talking about colonization this month. Hundreds of years ago, people left their homes and their loved ones to travel into the great unknown and explore what we now know as America. In the coming years, scientists expect we will have the technology that will make space colonization possible. You may be able to explore and live on Mars or other planets! “Connections” talks about space exploration and how it could shape our future.
