The Space Frontier Foundation believes that the permanent human habitation of space can only be accomplished by unleashing true free enterprise. We are not alone in that belief, and we salute these "Other Voices" in the debate about how we should explore, develop, and settle the endless frontier of space.
Open the Frontier!
December 6, 2007 – Click here to download the pdf of "Space Means Business" – Remarks by Patricia Grace Smith, Associate Administrator, Office of Commercial Space Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration, from the Washington Space Business Roundtable in Washington, D.C., December 6, 2007.

From the introduction..."I will talk today about space as a business with an emphasis on the emerging business of private human spaceflight. I am not a business person, so I am unable to speak as a player. But I can offer you the perspective of the FAA official on the field with the rule book in her pocket. It is a very good place to see what's going on. And a great deal is."

The Frontier Enabling Test
Our definition of a "frontier enabling" technology or policy is one which has as its effect the acceleration of the creation of low cost access to the space frontier for private citizens and companies, enables or accelerates our use of space resources, and/or accelerates the rate at which wealth can be generated in space. In other words, is the project or policy going to provide a return on the national investment, if we define "return" to be the economically sustainable human habitation of space?
