Reviewing UK space exploration

Curtis, Jeremy; Harra, Louise; Zarnecki, John and Grady, Monica (2010). Reviewing UK space exploration. Space Policy, 26(2) pp. 113–116.



This is an edited version of the Executive Summary of a report produced to advise government ministers on the options for UK involvement in space exploration. It sets out four options - from reduced involvement through robotic - only to a fully integrated human and robotic involvement - and discusses the economic and social benefits of each. Given other countries' interest in pursuing exploration, timing is of the essence.
