Space discord….

And not the kind involving laboratories….story in today’s FT here.

I think the big questions ahead are:

1) What’s the future post ISS?

2) What will be the role of the new private sector players such as SpaceX?

3) Will Space become contested and increasingly militarized?

My hope is the answer to (1) is significant manned presence beyond low earth orbit. For (2), I’d like to see a thousand flowers bloom. And for (3), would be a very bad outcome.
