The purpose of this thesis is to analyze the evolving relationship between governmental space agencies and the private sector of the aerospace industry. The technical project is a perfect example of how today’s space society is shifting towards an approach that encompasses not only the private sector, but universities and academical institutions as well. As time continues to pass, the commercial aerospace industry continues to take the world to new heights, and this thesis is a deep analysis of how mankind is beginning to enter in a new era of space exploration.
