In the absence of a transcendent purpose, the prospects for human expansion into space remain uncertain. Shapiro believes that a unique opportunity has arisen to link two worthy causes that have emerged (that is, the need to preserve our cultural heritage and to plan a strategy for the survival of the human race) in the recent past; each of which might flounder if allowed to proceed separately. According to Dudley-Flores and Gangale (2007), another breakthrough idea coming from the space industry is nanotechnology and this represents the logical extension of the miniaturization effort that began in the early days of space exploration.
The institutional market obtains space assets for causes that range from manned space flight and scientific investigation to fundamental public services and supporting R&D (OECD 2007). The commercial market refers to private or semi-private firms supplying space-based services or space-enabled products to final customers or other firms. There are three major parts of the commercial market: telecommunications (mobile and fixed services), Earth observation (EO) and location-based services (LBS). The progress of the commercial market is dependent on the development of the institutional market – that is, the commercial launcher/satellite market would almost certainly not exist in the absence of an institutional demand (Nelson and Winter 1982); OECD 2007).

He contends that, since war, resource depletion and overpopulation threaten the existence of the species as never before, the only chance of long term survival for the human species is not to remain inward-looking on planet Earth but to spread out into space ‘If we want to continue beyond the next hundred years, our future is in space’ (p.
