This is the third of four monographs: Executive Summary, The SPACECAST 2020 Process, The World of 2020 and Alternative Futures, and Operational Analysis. SPACECAST 2020 teams used different proposed futures to enrich concepts about future space activity The study group developed a most likely future, the SPACECAST world view, and several alternate futures.
