The expanding opportunity to compete in the space industry with fewer government restrictions comes at a cost of declining political subsidy. Understanding the currents of space commerce history is essential for understanding the future economic potential of space-related enterprises as well as for re-evaluating the roles of those now in the field. Handberg balances the dark past of private-sector failures with the bright future of opportunities in the first major look at the commercial space field since the breakup of the Soviet Union.
