ASEAN Space Programs – History and Way Forward

The role of space science and technology in fostering sustainable development has always been cited as the raison d’être for a country to embark on a space programme. For ASEAN countries, the situation is no different. This book clearly shows that they are embracing this important concept: all ASEAN countries are using space science and technology, at the very minimum for monitoring resources, and, at the other end of the spectrum as we recently learned, are even aspiring to go to the Moon. This book tells us the extent to which development of space programmes in ASEAN is happening and is a useful compendium to discover the motivations and aspirations of each country. For readers in ASEAN, this book contains information that could indicate the potential for international collaboration that can potentially increase the uptake of space science, technology and applications in each country. I might be so bold as to take the opportunity of writing this foreword to challenge the space agencies of ASEAN countries to consider cooperating in instituting an ASEAN space agency. And more importantly is the question of the need for the establishment of an ASEAN spaceport. The former is not difficult to achieve as ASEAN collectively is already a strong political and economic power. Considering the latter, no single country in ASEAN has the means or ability to demonstrate the economic viability of a national spaceport. An ASEAN spaceport would offer ASEAN countries, and others with a need to launch from the Tropics, a perfect launching site. An analysis of the various contributions in this book provides good answers and recommendations to face this challenge. I would like to warmly congratulate the editors for boldly putting this book together, to benefit the ASEAN community and other countries that seek to do business and collaborate in space with them. Scientists, decision-makers, policymakers and writers of ASEAN politics and history have much to gain from the expositions in this book.
