The Intelligent Aerospace take:
January 23, 2019-With China ramping up its space program to rival traditional powers like the United States, Russia, and the European Union, James Durso notes that the ascendant Asian power could produce a threat to American sovereignty and calls for allocating more of the federal budget to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Currently, NASA receives around one half of one percent of federal budget. Durso argues that a return to a Reagan-era "peace through strength" strategy and a build up of space capabilities through public and private investment. A "Space Race 2.0" could help not only the U.S. secure its footing above the atmosphere, it could also help drive innovation and prove a boon to companies that produce components for aerospace applications.
