Garver reveals how like the military, the space industrial establishment preferred to spend billions of taxpayer dollars on programs aimed to sustain jobs and contracts in key congressional districts, over more effective and efficient programs. Lori explains how her crusade to transform NASA put her in the cross hairs of the established, powerful interests who viewed her as a threat to the system that has centralized and controlled power since the 1950s. Including previously unpublished information, conversations and insights on the epic battles that have transitioned space access to private interests for a fraction of the cost of previous NASA programs, Escaping Gravity offers a blueprint for how to drive productive and meaningful government change.
