In the Oct. 10 issue of SpaceNews, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump answer nine space policy questions in a SpaceNews exclusive while senior staff writer Jeff Foust breaks down Elon Musk’s chances of making it to Mars.
“The biggest questions, and skepticism, about SpaceX’s Mars plans revolve around schedules and budgets,” Foust writes. “Many of the other concerns become moot if SpaceX can’t find the funding needed to develop the spaceship and booster, or if it takes far longer than planned.”
Also in this issue:
- The chief technical officers of two leading satellite fleer operators discuss why broadband satellites should be built to last just five years — and what’s standing in the way of making that happen.
- SES CEO Karim Michel Sabbagh challenges the oft-repeated assertion that the satellite communications sector is suffering an oversupply of broadband capacity.
- The head of Australia’s NBN talks all that’s riding on the just-launched Sky Muster 2 broadband satellite.
- The Aerospace Industry Association’s David Melcher urges the Obama administration to publish final export rules before clocking out.
