Space has always being an endless source of dreams. A vast, beautiful and dangerous place where imagination can meet reality and create never seen before miracles.
We most probably will never be able to experience the wonders of space ourselves in first person but thankfully the ever increasing number of great space video games, allows us to live several space adventures right now.
