About this book

The proceedings of the 2014 Reinventing Space conference present a number of questions in the context of a constantly innovating space industry, from addressing the future of global cooperation, investigating the impact of cuts in US government spending on the private space sector, and probing the overall future of the commercial launch sector. Space tourism and new technology promise the revival of interest in space development (the Apollo Era was the first period of intense space activity and growth). The need to create dramatically lower cost, responsive and reliable launch systems and spacecraft has never been more vital. Advances in technology are allowing smaller and cheaper satellites to be orbited - from cubesats to nanosatellites to femtosatellites. Thanks to more efficient new launch possibilities, low cost access to space is becoming ever more achievable. Commercial companies and countries are targeting the  industry with new funding. Organised by the British Interplanetary Society, the presentations at this conference thoroughly address these challenges and opportunities.

Reviews

“Book provides excellent ideas to lower cost for building small satellites and deliver them into their orbits with innovative, less expensive launch vehicles. Data reception and satellite control is covered as well – in addition fundamental legal aspects for space exploitation and commercialization are discussed and interpreted. The book is inspiring and breaking (realistic) new ground – it is recommended for everyone who wants to participate and take space exploration and commercialization to the next level in space or on the ground.” (Joachim J. Kehr, Journal of Space Operations & Communicator, opsjournal.org, Issue 14, 2017)
