This paper examines the implications that lowering the cost to access space will have on Airpower. The research conducted used predominantly qualitative research techniques to include interviews, primary sources, secondary sources, wargames, panel discussions, and site visits. Research included a wide range of topics including airpower, domestic policy, foreign policy, socioeconomic factors, and technological factors applicable to lowering the cost to access space, airpower theory, and application. An examination of these factors has led to the conclusion that the United States government should pursue and invest in a Fast Space Strategy in the future.
