FUTURE SPACE PROGRAMS
TUESDAY, JANUARY 24, 1978
The committee met, pursuant to notice, at 10:10 a.m., in room 2318, Rayburn House Office Building, Hon. Don Fuqua presiding.
Mr. FUQUA. According to paragraph E, subtitle 1, the committee may permit by a majority vote hearings and meetings which are open to the public to be covered in whole or in part by television, radio, or still photography, or any other method of coverage.
Without objection, said coverage will be permitted.
We regret that because of flu the chairman of the committee is not up to par and sends his regrets because he is not able to be here. He has asked that his regrets be expressed.
We are pleased today to welcome to the committee G. Harry Stine, George Jeffs, and Charles Sheffield. Our discussions this morning will focus on the future opportunities and prospects for a strong space program.
The past two decades of space exploration and operations have given us the tools to let us use space to the ever-increasing benefit of our Nation and the people of the world. What is required is the will to undertake such effort and a roadmap to set goals. It is the objective of these hearings to begin to formulate such a program for our Nation. We welcome as our first witness Mr. G. Harry Stine, author of "The Third Industrial Revolution." Mr. Stine is an engineer and writer who has increasingly devoted his attention to the useful applications of space. Following Mr. Stine we will hear from Mr. George Jeffs, president, space operations, Rockwell International, and Mr. Charles Sheffield, vice president, Earth Satellite Corp.
We are very happy to have you here, Mr. Stine, and will you please proceed.

BIOGRAPHY OF G. HARRY STINE
G. Harry Stine is an engineer, a futurist, and a science writer. He received his B.A. in physics from Colorado College in 1952 and went immediately to work at White Sands Proving Ground in New Mexico. He has been associated with astronautics for over a quarter of a century. He is the author of twenty books on science, technology, and astronautics, including "The Third Industrial Revolution," published in 1975 by G. P. Putnam's Sons in New York. This is the first and only book about space industrialization published to date. As early as 1957, he was involved in forecasting and planning studies for future space programs. He has performed future studies for the Hudson Institute, the Institute for the Future, Booz Allen Applied Research, Inc., and Science Applications, Inc. He was science consultant to CBS-TV News Special Events for Apollo-11 and is consultant to the National Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institution. He is a Fellow of the Explorers Club and the British Interplanetary Society, an Associate Fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, a member of the New York Academy of Sciences, and the Chairman of the Committee on Pyrotechnics of the National Fire Protection Association. He has been a private pilot since 1946 and owns his own aircraft. He has seen the space program from many vantage points as a civil service engineer, engineer for an
