My article, "The Next Wave of Nuclear Proliferation," is now online at the web site of the journal Parameters. You can check it out here.
The main idea-if atomic fission is the answer to the world's energy problems, then we're looking at a lot more risk of proliferation in the years ahead.
The second part of my article, "A Russian Resurgence?" is also up today at Space Review, and you can read it here. The focus in this section is on the ability of the Russian economy to support Russia's ambitions in space. Contrary to the hype, it's a mixed picture at best.
