Tell Us What You Think About the New Space Race!

All month, we’ve published pieces on the topic. Now we want to hear from you.

Over the past month we’ve published a handful of articles about the new space race as part of our ongoing project Futurography, which introduces readers to a new technological or scientific topic each month. We’ve published articles on the Russian space program, arguments about the importance of commercial exploration, and even about the language we use to describe those efforts.

With that behind us, we’d like to hear about your thoughts. Come back next month for a roundup of your responses. And get ready for our next unit, which looks at synthetic biology.


This article is part of the new space race installment of Futurography, a series in which Future Tense introduces readers to the technologies that will define tomorrow. Each month, we’ll choose a new technology and break it down. Future Tense is a collaboration among Arizona State University, New America, and Slate.
