The American space program stands at a crossroads on how to most efficiently move forward while maintaining US leadership in space. Today, while space programs in Russia, China, India and other nations have embraced open markets and commercial practices, the U.S. is still unsure how to conduct itself in a suddenly new, robust space community. Commercial space pioneer Jeffrey Manber will use his current company NanoRacks as an example of the new relationship that is emerging between government and the space industry and offer suggestions on how the American space industry will evolve as we move beyond low-earth orbit.
