March Storm 2018 Washington Congressional Visits a Success
The now-past March Storm 2018 event consisted of Congressional visits in Washington, DC, and was a good success in advancing the following 2018 Alliance for Space Development objectives:
- Establish an Ultra Low Cost Access to Space (ULCATS) program based on public-private partnership and streamlined governmental policy and regulations (see DRAFT BILL).
- Ensure a gapless transition from ISS to private space stations in LEO, with NASA assisting with development and serving as an early customer (see DRAFT BILL)
- Enable cis-lunar development through a series of programs, such as:
- A public-private partnership to develop and demonstrate a re-usable lander based in cis-lunar space.
- Setting a price that NASA will pay for commodities (water,etc.) at locations in cis-lunar space.
- Purchasing data gathered by private companies on lunar resources (water, etc.)
