The New York Times has a special section today where five experts on U.S. and non-U.S. space programs give their views on "A New Space Race, or Chances to Collaborate"?

The five experts and the titles of their essays are:

  • Bill Nye, CEO of the Planetary Society:  Reach for the Stars, Together
  • Dean Cheng, Heritage Foundation: U.S. Can Help Its Allies' Efforts
  • Jim Oberg, Author:  Russia Must Choose:  Low Tech or High?
  • Laura Grego and Gregory Kulacki, Union of Concerned Scientists:  With China, Setting Norms

All have diverse backgrounds, but Nye is best known as "Bill Nye, the Science Guy" and recently took over as head the Planetary Society.  Dean Cheng and Greg Kulacki are well known experts on China's space program.  Jim Oberg is an expert on Russia's space program in particular and is a consultant to NBC news.  Laura Grego is best known for her work in space security.
