The New Frontier Playbook attempts to bridge the gap between space enthusiasts who dream of a bold new frontier in space and the reality today that public budgets are anemic for space exploration.
This essay is based on a few simple principles.
- It’s a beta/draft. It is not perfect. Feedback welcome.
- It may be easier to increase NASA funding by 10x than 2x.
- In politics, there is no such thing as a ‘safe seat’, just a lack of alternatives.
- The future is a jump ball, up for grabs every day.
In the New Frontier Playbook, the goal is to offer a bold future in space and back it with a specific roadmap for getting there. The goal is to make this future possible.
