CRuSR and the new Space Policy

Last week, the Obama Administration issued a new succinct but far reaching Space Policy that encompasses all three sectors involved in space: civil, commercial and military. The policy outlines 5 guiding principles including a commitment to openness, transparency, and sustainability; the importance of a robust, competitive and innovative commercial sector; the rights of all humanity to space; and the rights of all responsible parties to peaceful and defensive use of space systems. Goals include developing space related industries, international cooperation, improved science and both human and robotic initiatives. Specific guidelines are defined for the three space sectors. Support for commercial space that is entrepreneurial and cost effective is clear and reaffirms the national commitment to programs such as CRuSR.
