“Last week, the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee marked up the American Space Commerce Free Enterprise Act. The bill intends to overhaul the U.S. government’s oversight of commercial activities in outer space, both in terms of existing operations and in addressing potential future missions. On both of these fronts, this bill is a major step in the right direction. It strikes at some of the major issues facing America’s commercial space industry, and opens the door for new missions.” (06/15/17)
