    by internal contradiction Space exploration on the scale envisioned in the president s plan is by necessity a cooperative international venture Neither the president s plan nor the prevailing thrust of existing U S space policies encourages the type of international partnerships that are needed Indeed there is much about U S space policy and plans particularly those pertaining to the possible deployment of weapons in space that even our closest allies find objectionable To examine U S space policy in greater detail the Academy called upon George Abbey and Neal Lane both of Rice University Their paper identifies challenges and opportunities for the United States space program paying particular attention to unintended consequences of current space policy which as they write presents a paradoxical picture of high ambition and diminishing commitment Abbey and Lane identify four barriers to U S progress in space science and exploration the strict regulation of satellite exports as munitions under the State Department rules a projected shortfall in the science and engineering workforce unrealistic plans for NASA s future space missions that neglect the important role of science and faltering international cooperation on existing and planned space missions These barriers according to Abbey and Lane will have to be overcome if the United States space program is to succeed They urge the United States to strive for a balanced program of commerce science exploration national security and shared international partnerships Authors George Abbey is Baker Botts Senior Fellow in Space Policy at the James A Baker III Institute for Public Policy at Rice University He directs the Space Policy Program which facilitates discussions on the future of space policy in the United States From 1995 until 2001 he was Director of the Johnson Space Center in Houston Texas He holds the NASA Distinguished Service
