Since the National Research Council released the report America’s Future in Space: Aligning the Civil Space Program with National Needs in 2009, numerous changes have occurred in the civil space arena. In May 2017, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a workshop on America’s Future in Civil Space with several objectives, including reviewing the history of U.S. space policy and how it might form a broad policy basis for twenty-first century leadership in space, examining the balance and interfaces between fundamental scientific research in space, human space exploration, robotic exploration, earth observations, and applications of space technology and civil space systems for societal benefits, and discussing the value, purpose, and goals of international cooperation in space. The workshop participants sought to capture what has changed, determine how to harness new opportunities, and decisively inform and encourage bold and timely implementation. This publication briefly summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
