Abstract

This technological forecast uses an enhanced Delphi methodology to predict what breakthroughs in space technology are most likely by 2050. It especially concentrates on panelists' cognitive type in relation to their optimism, and includes panels from NIAC, current college students, and recent college graduates. The current study builds upon previous IQP's which developed and first applied the questionnaires used.
