Are we at a crossroad in exploring the space frontier? Are we opting out as a nation – to build upon a legacy of sending humans and robots to delve into the mysteries of our solar system and beyond?
Since the “Space Race” of the 1960's, the portrait of space exploration has changed – one that is now a growing commercial and government endeavor. Still, the diplomatic value of pushing the boundaries of discovery in space is one that many nations are now pursuing.
Join Leonard David, space journalist, reporting on the future of the global space exploration program for more than five decades. Leonard will be discussing what the next decade may hold around the world for space exploration – in low Earth orbit, the Moon, Mars… and beyond!
