Space is one of the next big growth markets. High-resolution satellite photos, which are also available to private institutions, help manage humanitarian crises, infrastructure projects and logistical challenges. Space tourism also promises to become a lucrative market, despite its teething problems. Resource-rich asteroids could provide Earth with the planet's slowly disappearing resources. Many innovations are making astronauts' lives in space easier. A 3D printer that supplies them with nutrition and replacement parts, and robots providing healthcare are among them. Science Fiction? No, projects initiated by visionaries with a lot of capital.
