The Space Review Looks at Mars, Space Tourism and NASA’s Future

This week in The Space Review:

  • Anthony Young examines what lessons we can learn from the development of the F-1 rocket engine a half-century ago that we can apply to development of a new hydrocarbon engine.
  • Jeff Foust says its time to move past the rhetoric about the President’s space proposal into a more substantive debate about NASA’s future direction.
  • Frank Stratford argues that human Mars exploration can, in fact, demonstrate how we can solve problems closer to home.
  • Jeff Foust reviews a recent documentary about Richard Garriott’s trip to the ISS in 2008.
