Independent Perspectives on Cislunar Depotization

I was invited to participate in a workshop this week in Chantilly, VA focused on cislunar propellant depots. As part of the preparation for the workshop, they asked for stakeholder to provide their perspectives on depot architectures, the benefits of depots, and the technology, market, and policy changes needed to enable them. Based on the inputs I provided, they asked me to share my thoughts with the group.

Over on my Starbright Engineering blog, I wrote a summary of key ideas I think I brought to the table, and key lessons learned:
