This lecture will cover what’s going on in the U.S. space program today — not just what you hear about in the news, but what’s going on that you don’t hear much about. The instructor will address budget, politics, advocacy, and lobbying. You will hear about NASA’s biggest ticket projects right now — the Artemis back-to-the-Moon program and the Mars sample return campaign. You’ll also hear about what government watchdogs — for example, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and NASA’s own Office of Inspector General — have to say about these projects. The speaker will discuss what so-called “commercial” space companies are doing. And you’ll learn about the legal and regulatory regime in place to govern space activities.
