Thhe Space Review January 25th, 2010
By: Charles Rector | Newsletter | 12:40pm, January 30, 2010
Welcome to this week's issue of The Space Review:


Death from the skies? Ho-hum.
---
A new report last week suggested that near Earth object survey efforts require significant additional funding. Jeff Foust examines why the relative lack of money so far may in fact be a rational decision, and what could be done to improve their funding prospects.

The EMP threat: fact, fiction, and response (part 1)
---
Electromagnetic pulses, with their ability to destroy electronics and disrupt the power grid, are closely associated with nuclear weapons, but such phenomena can also be created by geomagnetic storms. In the first of a two-part article, Yousaf Butt provides a primer on EMP and how serious a threat weapons-generated pulses are.

Review: One Small Step
---
Another book about the history of the space age? Jeff Foust reviews a book that claims to offer the "inside story" about the history of human spaceflight.

If you missed it, here's what we published in our previous issue:


The future of science and human spaceflight
---
The new space exploration policy expected to be released in the coming weeks will offer a new opportunity to examine the intersection of space science and human spaceflight. Jeff Foust reports on what policy and science experts think the relationship between the two fields should be in the future.

Space systems and missile defense in 2010
---
The recent test of a Chinese missile interceptor demonstrates that missile defense is becoming a bigger issue around the world and not just in the US. Taylor Dinerman describes the implications this has for space-based systems that can be used to support such systems.

The spaceport glut
---
Last week a Florida airport became the latest licensed spaceport in the US. Jeff Foust reviews the current state of spaceports and examines whether, at this stage of the industry's development, there may be too many of them.

Space fetishism: obsession or rational action?
---
A recent article criticized space advocates for unduly focusing on some technologies or ideologies as the key to humanity's future in space. John K. Strickland, Jr. responds by noting that while at times people do go too far with such "fetishes", there are rational reasons for some of the advocacy.
