Scramble for the Skies
The Great Power Competition to Control the Resources of Outer Space
Namrata Goswami, Peter A. Garretson
With a focus on China, the United States, and India, this book examines the economic ambitions of the second space race. The authors argue that space ambitions are informed by a combination of factors, including available resources, capability, elite preferences, and talent pool. The authors demonstrate how these influences affect the development of national space programs as well as policy and law.
