There are indications of U.S. President Donald Trump shaping his space policy agenda.

Among those agenda items:

— His policies will be aimed at human exploration of the solar system.

— His policies will make NASA’s prime mission to reach beyond low earth orbit.

— He will turn over non-military and intelligence activities in low earth orbit (LEO) exclusively to the commercial sector.

— He intends to use private-public partnerships to expand the resources available to do space exploration and create space investment.

 

 

Taking the beachhead

ROBERT S. WALKER
FORMER CHAIRMAN, SCIENCE, SPACE AND TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE, U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

That’s the view of Robert S. Walker, former Chairman of the Science, Space and Technology Committee, U.S. House of Representatives.

Walker was a Senior Space Policy Advisor to the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump, served as an outside advisor to the Trump transition team, and currently provides outside advice to the administration’s beachhead teams working on civil, commercial, and space policy.

Walker expressed his space thoughts on The Cipher Brief, a digital, security-based conversation platform that connects the private sector with the world’s leading security experts.
