Murphy’s Law

Application to the Spacefaring America Initiative

Becoming a true spacefaring civilization must necessarily be a human endeavor because only the presence of humans can serve as the effective counter to Murphy’s Law. This is, essentially, a corollary to Murphy’s Law. For this reason, the spacefaring logistics infrastructure must be designed to enable the safe and routine operations of humans in space and enable the rapid response of humans to problems or crises resulting from Murphy’s Law. In executing the Spacefaring America Initiative, America becomes a nation of American spacefarers—there is no alternative.
