The New Space Economy
I believe one key to getting humanity out into space for good is creating economic conditions that allow the energy of private enterprise to drive the process. I gave a speech titled The New Space Economy in Austin, Texas, in May of 2010 that outlines an approach to achieve just that. Space News later published the speech as an op-ed piece.
In October 2011, I gave a speech at the annual meeting of the Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS) in Boulder, Colorado, called Growing the Space Economy.
Also in October 2011, I testified before the US Congressional House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology and with Elon Musk and others. I advocated investments in NASA's commercial crew program, and you can read a transcript of my testimony.
I also wrote a short piece titled Creating Rockets that was published in April 2015 by the Denver Post.
