Human Space Flight
' The British Royal Astronomical Society recently released a report* advocating the expansion of British involvement in human space exploration. I hope that report receives sober consideration in the policy circles of the United Kingdom, and I hope that I can count on you to be one of the international partners who, with the United States, work to develop the first permanent lunar outpost in the next decade'.
* The study, by an independent panel, was commissioned by the RAS as a contribution to the consideration of Human Space Exploration in general and does not imply Society endorsement of its recommendations.
