The frequency of space travel requires us to define and refer with greater precision the jobs needed in space over the following decades.
There have been noticeable trends in science fiction. I want to share some initial thoughts in response to these space-related conversations. First, I define modern science fiction in its simplest terms as the artistic genre in literature, film, visual arts, music, and other aesthetic expressions, that addresses scientific advances of

The recent report from the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine explains the ongoing debate in astrobiology about the distinction between a planet's organic alien life or the evolution of organisms brought by crewed missions - i.e., forward biological contamination.
Developing indigenous knowledge and regional expertise will harness the new space ecosystem.
Space will increasingly demand us to extend beyond our limits and comfort zones. I wonder how humans and machines will evolve together?
R&D and in-space testing are two integral components for reliable space technologies and systems. Thus, their need will only increase as our missions evolve.
