Space Policy affects nations and governments, all over the word. Our economies are shaped by our efforts to expand our consciousness among the stars, as new technologies and ideas are generated by our thirst for knowledge and exploration. Much of space exploration today takes place via robotic technologies, which are teaching us more about our world and galaxy. One thing is sure, what we do in space has a deep impact on Earth. Societies are shaped by the stories and myths we tell each other. Just think of how settling America affected economies around the globe. New industries opened up, and global consciousness grew out of pure exploration. If humans settled Mars or another world, how would our society change?
