DDI SPACE/EUROPE NMD FILE TURNSTEIN 2K8            2 / 31 SPACE MILITARIZATION DESTROYS COOPERATION U.S. Space militarization destroys any chance of co-operation in space. GEORGE ABBEY BAKER, BOTTS SENIOR FELLOW IN SPACE POLICY AT THE JAMES A. BAKER III INSTITUTE FOR PUBLIC POLICY AT, FORMER DIRECTOR OF THE JOHNSON SPACE CENTER, AND, NEAL LANE IS THE MALCOLM GILLIS UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR AT RICE UNIVERSITY AND SENIOR FELLOW OF THE JAMES A. BAKER III INSTITUTE FOR PUBLIC POLICY, 2005, “UNITED STATES SPACE POLICY: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES”, HTTP://WWW.AMACAD.ORG/PUB LICATIONS/SPACEPOLICY.PDF One of the most important questions plaguing the current NASA Plan 1S the degree to which other nations will be invited to join the United States as true partners and to participate in the early planning stages of future human exploration missions. President Bush, in his speech of Januar) 14,2004, appeared to invite other nations to share the challenges and opportunities of his vision and the new era of discovery. However, NASA leadership subsequently contradicted that promise when then NASA Administrator Sean O’Keefe stated that the new space initiative was “ very much going to be a U.S. led endeavor. That’s our intent. And, again, much of what we had been directed and what the President envisions we do is to achieve this set of American, U.S. exploration objectives.”23 This is not an invitation to partnership. Partnership, of course, does not exclude national objectives, but it does require a sharing of vision, objectives, and commitments, at the earliest stages of planning. Otherwise, the United States cannot expect other nations to participate enthusiastically and to provide the necessary staffing and funding. Based on the authors conversations, it is clear that scientists, engineers, and policy makers around the world perceive that the United States has no interest in bringing other nations into the planning process, though it expects them to take on the operation of the space station and to provide assistance for other U.5.-led space
