The Lunch Speaker at the Galloway symposium was Marcia Smith, Space Policy Online and Space and Technology Policy Group, LLC. Her presentation was titled “The 2010 U.S. National Space Policy and Its Potential for Upholding the Principles of the Outer Space Treaty Regime.”

Her comments centered on how the new United States Space Policy issued by the Obama administration differed from the previous policy from the Bush administration. She emphasized that the policy focused on International Cooperation as a way to increase space security and encourage the peaceful uses of outer space. She noted that this was step towards engaging the international space community in order to accomplish exploration goals. She also discussed how the idea of U.S. leadership in space exploration was still in the space policy, but had less emphasis than in previous policies.
