    From Congress to NASA to Elon Musk, there’s been a lot of talk about humans going to Mars. Until recently, it’s been fanciful, given budget constraints, the mothballing of the space shuttle and Americans needing Russia to reach the International Space Station. But slowly, the red planet is coming into view. The vehicles necessary are being built, research craft are being sent to survey the landscape and plans are being drawn up for a lunar way station. All that’s needed now is a target date. But... Read more

    In recent years, the Office of Space Commerce had been an almost forgotten part of the federal space bureaucracy, even among those immersed in policy debates. The tiny office lacked the regulatory mandate of the FAA, FCC, or even NOAA, whose Commercial Remote Sensing Regulatory Affairs (CRSRA) office licensed commercial imaging satellites.
