NASA and private companies are using travel to the Moon as a way to expand the space frontier. Both the public and the private sectors will be essential for creating the necessary new technologies to accomplish this task. What are the goals of current space missions? Who are the new players to watch? What laws govern space expeditions? Is there money to be made in the years to come?

As the dominant power in space, the United States is faced with the challenge of maintaining a space policy that fosters cooperation and avoids conflict with other spacefaring nations.

Having studied Physics, Maths and Astronomy at Oxford, he became a radio astronomer at the Jodrell Bank Observatory and teaches Astronomy and Cosmology at the University of Manchester.<br /> <br /> Over 25 years he has also taught Observational Astronomy to many hundreds of adult students in the North West of England. An active amateur optical astronomer, he is a council member and past president of the Society for Popular Astronomy in the United Kingdom.<br /> <br /> At Jodrell Bank he was a designer of the 217 KM MERLIN array and has coordinated the Project Phoenix SETI Observations using the Lovell Radio Telescope. He contributes astronomy articles and reviews for New Scientist and Astronomy Now, and produces a monthly sky guide on the Observatory's website.<br /> <br /> For his full biography, please visit the Gresham College website: <a href="http://www.gresham.ac.uk/text.asp?PageId=23">http://www.gresham.ac.uk/text.asp?PageId=23</a> Neil deGrasse Tyson: The Pluto Files tag:peacepink.ning.com,2010-01-21:2351430:Video:32217 2010-01-21T04:23:06.488Z Metric Clay https://peacepink.ning.com/profile/MetricClay Laura Danly - Dr. Laura Danly is Curator at the Griffith Observatory, where she develops all educational, theatrical, gallery, and telescope programs.

She holds a Ph.D. in Astronomy, and is a spectroscopist specializing in ultraviolet observations from space satellites.<br /> Neil deGrasse Tyson - Neil deGrasse Tyson was born and raised in New York City where he was educated in the public schools clear through his graduation from the Bronx High School of Science. Tyson went on to earn his BA in Physics from Harvard and his PhD in Astrophysics from Columbia. Tyson's professional research interests are broad, but include star formation, exploding stars, dwarf galaxies, and the structure of our Milky Way. Tyson obtains his data from the Hubble Space Telescope, as well as from telescopes in California, New Mexico, Arizona, and in the Andes Mountains of Chile. In 2001, Tyson was appointed by President Bush to serve on a 12-member commission that studied the Future of the US Aerospace Industry. The final report was published in 2002 and contained recommendations (for Congress and for the major agencies of the government) that would promote a thriving future of transportation, space exploration, and national security. In 2004, Tyson was once again appointed by President Bush to serve on a 9-member commission on the Implementation of the United States Space Exploration Policy, dubbed the "Moon, Mars, and Beyond" commission. This group navigated a path by which the new space vision can become a successful part of the American agenda. And in 2006, the head of NASA appointed Tyson to serve on its prestigious Advisory Committee, which will help guide NASA through its perennial need to fit its ambitious vision into its restricted budget. In addition to dozens of professional publications, Dr. Tyson has written, and continues to write for the public.
