Visions and key dates in tomorrow’s space agenda

Between the desire for supremacy and the wish to use space as a catalyst for a new economy, the vision that nations have of their place in space is remarkably diverse. Let’s remember that space is one of the few sectors which needs to have a long-term view.

Race for space supremacy between China and the United States with the shift in international cooperation

The United States is the leading space power, but it is constantly threatening to be overtaken by China. The timelines are very different. The American vision operates with short dates, fearing a change in general policy with the variations of presidencies in the White House. Even though support for the US space economy is transparent, it is not secure enough.[1] This is why NASA has secured its major programmes internationally (ISS, Artemis in particular).
