Another servicing mission to Hubble may not be in the best interests of the astronomical science community or the taxpaying public, and I believe an alternative to servicing Hubble — namely, build Hubble 2.0 — is more feasible.
In 2005, the United States had over 160,000 troops deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Pentagon was ramping up remotely piloted vehicle operations over both war zones and military operational requirements filled government satellites to capacity…

The next year is a critical time for this country’s military space strategy. New and powerful high-throughput satellite (HTS) systems will soon be coming on line, delivering far more performance than today's satellites. The DoD must find a way to more efficiently and quickly harness technological innovation.
Ensuring the long-term sustainability and security of the outer space environment is a challenge that the United States and India are uniquely situated to address together. Between the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and NASA, our two nations have done tremendous work in our exploration of outer space.
Open source is software or hardware universally accessible and intended to be freely used, shared and improved. The impact on space exploration is in two main places: the use of open source technology and the development of open source systems.
In another sign of the James Webb Space Telescope's dysfunction, Northrop Grumman denied a GAO request to interview programmatic technical experts unless a supervisor was present.
MDA's budget blueprint for 2016 contained a refreshing surprise: a $22 million request to field of commercially hosted sensors that would determine whether or not incoming missiles have been successfully intercepted.
Until recently, making huge accomplishments in space was reserved exclusively for the large aerospace corporations and heavily funded space companies on contract to the federal government. Now it has been proved that a small group of motivated individuals can move quickly on decade-long dreams for space.
