    Legislative Options for Space Transportation Space Program Futures Congress could choose to support the development of one or more of many different types of space transportation systems. To determine which of these alternatives is most appropriate, Congress must first make some broad decisions about the future of the United States in space. Intelligent transportation systems are a vision of a future that integrates existing transportation infrastructure with communication networks in an effort to reduce congestion and travel time. In doing so on a mass scale, the larger effect of intelligent transportation systems is to limit the release of carbon emissions into the atmosphere Author: Talal Al-Khatib.
