During our 11.5 minute discussion, Dr. Spudis talked about the Global Space Exploration Conference just concluded in Washington, DC and the focus of national space agencies on returning to the Moon and lunar economic development. We talked about Cis-lunar economic development with the U.S. leading the way in public/private partnerships. We talked about heavy lift launch capability, the SLS, and why the U.S. must be in the lead for Cis-lunar economic development. We also talked about present day capabilities for starting a lunar economic development program. If you have comments or questions, please post them on The Space Show blog.
