Reason magazine outer space issue

Merry Christmas! Reason magazine just published a fascinating and thought-provoking collection essays on various aspects of space exploration in its December 2022 issue (see here), the cover of which is pictured below. The five essays that most caught my attention were as follows (in alphabetical order, by author):

  1. The FCC: America’s Other Space Agency” by Payton Alexander.
  2. We Are Going to the Moon” by Eric Berger.
  3. Who Owns the Satellites Orbiting the Earth?” by Joe Lancaster.
  4. Space Is an Opportunity To Rethink Property Rights” by Rebecca Lowe.
  5. The Case for Space Billionaires” by Katherine Mangu-Ward.
  6. And last but not least: “As Private Space Travel Grows, so Will the Insurance Market” by Mike Riggs.

For my part, I have previously proposed “launch auctions” to allocate orbits in outer space (see here, for example), and I am currently researching this idea further. In the meantime, I will write up short reviews of these excellent essays next week.
