Bruno rolled out a ULA assessment during a webinar hosted by the Beyond Earth Institute. The institute is exploring the criteria and definitions of a community beyond Earth.

Bruno said the ULA appraisal has been given to the U.S. National Space Council for consideration.

The intent is to move away from a definition that would include cramped space habitats as suitable for thriving human communities.

During the program, Bruno discussed critical infrastructure elements that will enable the emergence of the cislunar economy that will eventually include large scale off-world communities.
