As we end our year of celebrating the Apollo 11 moon landing, there is a renewed interest in returning humans to the moon from a number of governments and private enterprises. In this course, we examine the state of space exploration as we enter the third decade of the 21st century. David Alexander, Ph.D., discusses the importance of the moon as a destination and as a waypoint for further deep space exploration. We also consider the growing transition from large-scale, government-led exploration to a more versatile and agile approach via public-private partnerships, including the growth of commercial spaceports.
