The purpose of this just-released NSS Position Paper is to clarify and explain current and potential benefits of space-based capabilities for life on Earth from environmental, social, and economic perspectives, including:

A) Space activities having a positive impact today(such as Earth observation for weather and climate).

B) Space activities that could have a positive impact in the next 5 to 20 years (such as Datasat/Internet mega-constellations).

C) Space activities that could have a positive impact in the more distant future (such as widespread space manufacturing and industrialization).
