The United States faces growing competition and increasing threats in the space domain from countries like Russia and China, each of which possess technologies capable of targeting U.S. space assets. At the same time, the global space economy is primed for liftoff, as technological advances and scientific breakthroughs unlock space-based investments and make the promise of space resources within reach. According to some estimates, within the next two decades, ventures like space tourism, the harnessing of solar energy, and space mining will propel the overall value of the space economy to $1 trillion.
America’s leaders must understand the scale and implications of the unfolding space race to best react to the threats and opportunities in this domain. Infrastructure For The Future seminar series is designed to broaden the knowledge base among key officials and stakeholders through a wide range of educational activities.
Few global issues have taken on more current importance than the future of the postwar, rule-based international order. The resulting global institutions, processes, habits, rules, and norms inspired the rise of regional organizations and became what we now know as the postwar international order. The essential approach it reflects—nesting U.S. power in a shared multilateral order—has provided the basis for U.S. national security strategies since the 1950s.
Today, however, that order is under unprecedented strain, both within the societies of its leading members and from revisionist countries determined to change some aspects of how the order functions.
Nuclear fission and fusion power will be essential for future Space Exploration. These technologies can deliver the performance required to take large people and cargo astronomically long distances, and support the power requirements for long-term colonies far removed from the safety net of Earth.

THE NEXT GREAT STRATEGIC FRONTIER
Space represents the next great strategic frontier for the United States. Our history is full of examples of visionary transportation leadership across sea, land, and air; that history demands that we lead in space. The nation’s space enterprise is facing tremendous change, driven by technology advancements, entrepreneurial investments, new business models, rapidly changing threats, and a complex geopolitical landscape. Navigating this multifaceted domain requires experience and vision.
TO REDUCE POLITICAL UNCERTAINTY
The Foundation for the Future created the SPACE ACT of 2021 to initiate debate and consideration on the future of space development and the urgency for the primacy of the United States to support a private/public sector federally chartered corporation for space infrastructure and enhancement of projects to the Stars.
