This is Space: Photos of Falcon Heavy, Jupiter, OSIRIS-REx Images, and Mars

Falcon Heavy on the launch pad, the Jupiter's swirling atmosphere, a photo of the Earth and Moon taken by NASA's OSIRIS-Rex spacecraft, and astronaut John Young on the surface of the Moon: these are just some of the incredible space photos published during the first week of the year.

2018 is going to be a year of doing things differently when it comes to space exploration and research.  New missions, new rockets, new destinations, and a whole lot of commercial space companies are about to become the norm, rather than the exception.

Enjoy this week's gallery of space photos below.
