I have one. The politics of space were traditionally very much Soviet v USA. Very much bipolar and state-centric. We seem to be moving away from that, with more states involved, especially China, but also private commercial organizations and their idiosyncratic leaders, like Musk and Bezos, are becoming increasingly active. Is this politically sustainable?
George Hodermarsky

Lee Lohman

elizabeth waitekus
A friend of a friend who works at Langley said there are satellites that track debris threatening the space station and can destroy it with a laser. True?
Rex Holmlin
