Abstract

Two decades ago, the space age dawned, and we were awakened to a realm of technological possibilities beyond any we had imagined. Since that time, we have linked continents with communication satellites, sent probes to other planets, and seen men on the moon. And, although we have made achievements that were almost inconceivable 30 years ago, we are still far from realising our potential for a future in space.
