Publication date: 
Friday, August 1, 2008
Abstract in English: 
Since the dawn of the space era in 1957, space science and technology have enhanced our knowledge of Earth, atmosphere, and outer space. They have improved the quality of life for the human race. Our space vision for the next 50 years has to consolidate these benefits and expand them further to address crucial issues faced by humanity in energy, environment, water, and minerals. Above all, we have to keep upper most in our mind the need for an alternate habitat for the human race in our solar system. The crucial mission for the global space community is to realize a dramatic reduction in the cost of access to space.

Space Exploration in a Changing International Environment

Date of Editorial Board meeting: 
Publication date: 
Tuesday, July 1, 2014
Abstract in English: 
The current phase of space exploration is coming to an end and nations are seeking the next step for space exploration. The decisions of the United States and its partners on the future of space exploration will determine the strategic situation in space. There are difficult issues to consider in moving ahead: the target of exploration beyond low earth orbit (LEO), the balance between manned and unmanned programs, the future of partnership and cooperation in space, and the ultimate fate of the ISS. How Western space powers answer these questions will decide both the pace and the future direction of exploration in space.
