Storify: #RenewingSpace: The Future of Human Space Exploration
By The Atlantic Council
Despite these setbacks, efforts are underway to build a more sustainable space exploration program as stated by the recently released US National Research Council study assessing the goals, capabilities, and future trajectory of NASA's endeavor. In addition, the advent of cheaper, advanced technologies and private sector innovation are leading to more globalized approaches to space exploration. Now is the time to catalyze international cooperation and reclaim our aspirations to discover the far reaches of space, our final frontier.
On September 16, the Atlantic Council gathered international thought leaders from business, academia, and government, to discuss opportunities for international and commercial collaboration to build a more sustainable space exploration program.
Below is an account of the day's proceedings.
