The Future of Space 2060 aims to inform Air Force Space Command, NASA, and other U.S. Government organizations on the future national security environment and the role that space will play in that environment. The Space Futures Workshop, convened in March of 2019, built upon the work of NATOs Strategic Foresight Analysis with a specific focus on how political, economic, and technology trends could play out in the space domain. The goal of this work is to build an understanding of the range of possible future space scenarios to inform leaders of the technology investments, national strategies, intergovernmental plans, and partnerships with the commercial sector that must be created to ensure a positive future for the nation. This report is a first step in that direction.
