Transforming 15% of Israeli FMA ( Foreign military assistance) to a space program

December 28, 2014

Transforming 15% of Israeli FMA ( Foreign military assistance) to a space program. 15% of $3 Billion  would be $450 Million per year.

This sum could only be used for equipment to be used in a joint Israeli American human spaceflight program.This could be a Lunar lander or a BEO space station***.Under this proposal Israel may use this fund to pay for membership costs in the ESA and  ESO

The 15% of FMA shall gradually  build up over 8 years or roughly 2 % a year.Israel would be entitled to a astronaut presence in BEO

The BEO space station could be Israel is  partner in the proposed SLS/Skylab-II,Isreal could build a Skylab-II for each one NASA builds

A third alternative is a Israeli  company  with an american branch to build and test fly a pewee NTR engine in the Negev desert


Hypothesis; Transforming diverting American foreign military assistance  to the peaceful exploration of the inner solar system brings peace and stability and yes pride in being human to the middle east,Indeed the 1977 Camp David peace accords gave Egypt $2 Billion in annual FMA so in a  future post will discuss a NASA Egypt MFA accord. NASA partnerships with FMA recipient nations could be a major form of technology soft power  that together with the ESA cements these nation states in the ESA and in the future the EU.
