Space Technology

Studies and Customers

Carolyn Meinel currently is supporting Miles Palmer with his Thor Earth to space launch system.

In 2022, Meinel forecasted the future of colonies in space for the Existential Risks Tournament -->

M/B Research, of which Meinel is CEO, has assisted the Space Dynamics Laboratory, Utah State University, in both the technical and marketing arenas for its space-based sensor technologies.

M/B Research has produced two major technical books relevant to space technology: Emerging Technologies Vol. III (which has a chapter on advanced space propulsion) and the two-volume Electromagnetic Launch Systems. Both were published by Forecast International of Newtown CT.

Meinel, also wrote a significant portion of the first edition of Forecast International's World Space Systems Forecast. This book was the bible of space technology market research.

M/B Research has also done proprietary studies on space technologies for companies including Shimizu, IHI and Science Applications International Corp., and has provided marketing assistance to American Rocket Company.

National Space Society

M/B Research President Carolyn Meinel has been active in space technology since founding and serving as the president of the L-5 Society for Space Development. L-5 stands for Lagrangian Libration Point number 5 (as everyone knows!:^)), a place in space equidistant from the Earth and Moon. Because of intriguing orbital mechanics aspects of these libration points, they are likely to someday be the home of the cities, farms and factories that will be the foundation of civilizations in space. In 1986, the L-5 Society and National Space Institute merged to form the National Space Society.

News Groups

There have been several news groups on Usenet which long ago had been invaluable for gathering information on space technology:

  • was unmoderated. Several top space policy gurus used to regularly post there, most notably John Pike of the Federation of American Scientists and Dwayne Allen Day of Georgetown University. Other stars posted there, for example, prolific author and UFO-basher James C. Oberg; and Lori Garver, at one time the executive director of the National Space Society.

M/B Research, Carolyn Meinel
