NewSpace still eludes the space community Circa 2006 Evolved from Suborbital and orbital vehicles Jeff Foust, The evolving ecosystem of NewSpace The Space Review (15 August 2011) NewSpace a company that is built, formed, operated by, funded by, or has as part of its business plan the opening of the space frontier, and making a profit doing so.

L. & Poly 405, 423-424. commercialization and privatization It can be expected that this development toward privatization and commercialization of space applications will continue as demands grow and as States and international organizations continue to

have less financial resources available for space activities. Karl -Heinz Bckstiegel, Chairs Introductory Remarks (1997) 22(1) Annals of Air and Space Law 399, 341 A nascent commercial launch market Globalization as driving a movement toward a free launch trade environment: Restrictive bilateral launch agreements set to expire;

NASAs CRS program: Orbital ATK and SpaceX delivering cargo to ISS In addition: SpaceX challenging ULAs monopoly on EELV program launches for US DoD OldSpace v. NewSpace? In a new sort of space race, the [NASA cargo] contract has touched off an intense competition between stalwart defense contractors and new

space start-ups that have, in just a few years, shown they can compete. Christian Davenport, A new space race emerges as NASA prepares to award contract to ferry supplies to space station, The Washington Post (9 March 2015). Disruptive technologies? They don't spread things all over the country the way that NASA and defense contractors tend to do. They're very focused in two locations in the country. They bring everything in-house. They have no

subcontractors, so everything comes to them. That's disruptive. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden, Statement to President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, as reported by Frank Morning, Jr., SpaceX Might Be Able to Teach NASA a Lesson. Aviation Week (23 May 2011). A NewSpace industry [Orbital Sciences], which was founded in 1982, has only a toe hold in the New Space industry. Actually, it is rocket science, The Economist (8-14 Nov. 2014) at 72

NewSpace as an evolving industry that any company, new or old can exploit? NewSpace challenging the status quo? NewSpace companies are those, seeking to step outside the status quo of governmental contracting which has been the norm for commercial space actors to date. 2010 US National Space Policy calls upon US gov to purchase services, as opposed to hardware, from commercial providers This, of course, begs the question of whether these start-up companies will

rely on government contracts for their existence as much as their predecessors have. P.J. Blount, Renovating Space: The Future of International Space Law, (2011-12) 40 Denv J Intl L & Poly 515, 521 Whats so new, space? This New Space age is a time of change and upheaval, when the capabilities once resident in just two national space agencies morph and evolve into a global pipeline of tech incubation stoked by

the efforts of some 70 national space organizations around the globe. Elliot Holokauahi Pulham, The New Space Age (2013) 1(1) NewSpace iii.
