Summary
"Written by a former Aerodynamics Officer on the space shuttle program, this book provides a complete overview of the 'new' U.S. space program, which has changed considerably over the past 50 years. The future of space exploration has become increasingly dependent on other countries and private enterprise. Can private enterprise can fill the shoes of NASA and provide the same expertise and safety measures and lessons learned from NASA? In order to tell this story, it is important to understand the politics of space as well as the dangers, why it is so difficult to explore and utilize the resources of space. Some past and recent triumphs and failures will be discussed, pointing the way to a successful space policy that includes taking risks but also learning how to mitigate them"--Provided by publisher
