Space, the Dormant Frontier looks at the U.S. space program as a whole instead of examining only its civil or military aspects, as part of the book's premise is that these two communities must work together to advance the program. The authors describe how the status of the space program has fallen from glory then challenge Washington with realistic policy recommendations.
