With the Trump budget following the private sector push into space by Space X, Blue Horizon, Virgin Galactic, and the traditional aerospace giants, the media is beginning to pay more attention to SPACE. POLITICO has launched a weekly space focused newsletter and Inverse a weekly podcast:
WELCOME TO POLITICO SPACE, our new weekly briefing on the policies and personalities shaping the new space age in Washington and beyond. We will bring you interviews with leading figures in government and industry, a jump on key developments and documents, and a portal for deeper reporting on the politics, possibilities, and risks of the space race.
‘I Need My Space’ is a weekly podcast that enlists experts, explorers, and enthusiasts to answer the questions that are worth spacing out over. Hosted by senior editor Rae Paoletta and comedian Steve Ward, each 45-minute episode will launch headfirst into topics of astronomical proportions with an approachable style. When will we realistically get to Mars? How would we build a space colony better than Earth? What will aliens look like?
With the FCC approval of the Space X constellation of broadband satellites and planned 4G network for the moon there is a broadband space connection. I am adding a Space navigation tab for space-related rural broadband events and issues. In addition to broadband from satellites, the push into space will bring new technology advance that will benefit rural telecommunications, and I will cover those events as well under the Space Tab.
