His work on property rights and the international law of outer space has been briefed to senior NASA leaders.  He is currently working on a comprehensive history of the scheduling of human spaceflight in two dimensions of time.  Thomas Gangale is the author of two books: “From the Primaries to the Polls: How to Repair America’s Broken Presidential Nomination Process,” and “The Development of Outer Space: Sovereignty and Property Rights in International Space Law,” both published by Praeger.  He will begin his doctoral studies in international relations at Atenisi University in February 2010.
