Abstract:

The argument is made that there needs to be comprehensive study of the social and economic implications of explorations into space. These include international political and legal complications and those arising from possibilites of utilizing communication satellites. The belief is expressed that the national space agencies and major contractors should study their own operations and the economic and social implications of their products they should learn to mobilize techniques of organization and achievement to the nonspace needs of human environment.
