Choice, Not Fate: Shaping a Sustainable Future in the Space Age
by James A. Vedda
Choice, Not Fate challenges the traditional paradigm in which space goals are equated with destinations. It suggests that spaceflight programs should target advanced capabilities that bring direct benefits to Earth and enable exploration and development of the solar system. Space activities are examined in the context of today's globalized world while paying homage to the work of noted space futurists. Historical examples and current political processes illustrate the forces that perpetuate short-term thinking and highlight the need for incentives to promote long-term thinking.

The book presents a revised rationale for spaceflight directly tied to societal needs and ambitions, with a greater role for the commercial sector.
