Space was at the center of America’s imagination in the 1960s. President John F. Kennedy’s visionary statement captured the mood of the day: "We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard." The Apollo mission’s success in July 1969 made almost anything seem possible, but the Cold War made space flight the province of governmental agencies in the United States. When the Apollo program ended in 1972, space lost its hold on the public interest, as the great achievements wound down. Entrepreneurs are beginning to pick up the slack—looking for safer, more reliable, and more cost effective ways of exploring space. Entrepreneurial activity may make create a renaissance in human spaceflight. The private sector can energize the quest for space exploration and shape the race for the final frontier. Space entrepreneurs and private sector firms are making significant innovations in space travel. They have plans for future tourism in space and safer shuttles. Solomon details current US and international laws dealing with space use, settlement, and exploration, and offers policy recommendations to facilitate privatization. As private enterprise takes hold, it threatens to change the space landscape forever. Individuals are designing spacecraft, start-up companies are testing prototypes, and reservations are being taken for suborbital space flights. With for-profit enterprises carving out a new realm, it is entirely possible that space will one day be a sea of hotels and/or a repository of resources for big business. It is important that regulations are in place for this eventuality. These new developments have great importance, huge implications, and urgency for everyone.

At the time of ?nalising this second volume of the ?Yearbook on Space Policy? which covers the period mid-2007 to mid-2008, Europe is as visible and strong in the area of space activities as never before. Its space probes are present on the Moon, around Mars, and on Saturn?s Moon Titan, and are chasing asteroids and comets; Ariane V is the most successful commercial launch vehicle; and more and more European space applications satellites are in operation. Finally, with the successful launch of the Columbus Orbital Facility (COF) – the most prominent highlight of this period which is also depicted on the cover of this Yearbook – and the ?rst Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV), Europe has become a decisive player in human space?ight. This is accompanied by new policy initiatives on the ministerial level which have been bringing the European Space Agency and the European Union steadily closer. Europe?s outstanding development and positioning in the space ?eld is based not only on Europe?s successful engineering and scienti?c capabilities and capacities, but also on the forceful political determination of all European actors to maintain and even further their engagement in the use of outer space. And it is this political determination which provides the focus for this ?Yearbook on Space Policy?. The Yearbook describes and analyses the contexts and contents of space policy. Its primary ?eld of investigation is Europe, but it also covers the whole range of global space activities and their in?uence on European endeavours.

Seit das weltumspannende Deutungsmuster des Ost-West-Konflikts für Gewaltauseinandersetzungen in und zwischen Staaten verloren ging, wurde eine intensive Diskussion um die Veränderung des Krieges geführt. Die Entwicklungen der internationalen Ordnung, die Wandlungen von Staatlichkeit, die faktische Ordnungskraft der Globalisierung, die Politisierung von ethnischen Identitäten und Religionen und andere Faktoren bildeten den Rahmen in dem die Gewaltauseinandersetzungen neu beobachtet und interpretiert wurden. Der Krieg wandelte erneut sein Gesicht. Dabei entwickelten und veränderten sich die Mittel der Gewaltanwendung ebenso drastisch wie die Zwecksetzungen der einzelnen Kriegsparteien und Gewaltakteure variierten. Die Komplexität der Kriege wurde in den unterschiedlichen Blickwinkeln auf das Kriegsgeschehen und die Gewaltverhältnisse deutlich und bildet seither die Grundlage, auf der über die neuen Aufgaben zur Herstellung und Gewährleistung von Sicherheit nachgedacht wird.
