Sample text

Following the third argument, this book couples rationalist IR theories with transatlantic space politics to provide a causal mechanism explanation for the variation in European and US strategies in different space application fields. A causal mechanism explanation refers to the identification of the “independent stable factors that under certain conditions link causes to effects” (George and Bennett 2005: 8). None of the afore-mentioned literature specifies the conditions under which the “independent stable factors” they proposed can generate effects.

Concerning the political analysis of the case studies, I focus on international and internal/domestic structural factors that impose constraints on and create opportunities for European and US choices of strategy and partner. I do not treat the US and Europe as homogeneous unitary actors, because their preferred strategies are derived from both the result of domestic/internal politics and the influence of international structure. US domestic politics is a complex process of bureaucratic bargaining that involves competing interests of various departments and sectors, and it is one of the critical determinants of US strategy.

In addition to the disputes between advanced space-faring states and latecomers, advanced space-faring states may also vie for these resources with each other. Therefore, international cooperation and competition are inevitable because they serve as the costeffective strategies for states to gain a greater share of the limited space resources. e. the “three-body problem”) for prospective space colonization and space manufacturing. There are five locations in the Earth–Moon space of strategic and commercial significance: the Lagrange points (named L-1 to L-5 in honor of the Italian mathematician who identified their existence).
