Planetary Resources Aims to Make 'Smartphone of Space'

Planetary Resources Aims to Make 'Smartphone of Space' | AstroAllie5 Space | Scoop.it

Peter Diamandis – along with the likes of Elon Musk, Richard Branson, Dennis Tito, and Jeff Bezos – is one of a handful of entrepreneurs who can rightfully claim to have jump-started the young but growing private space exploration industry.

 

The co-founder of the X Prize Foundation, Zero-Gravity Corporation, Space Adventures, Planetary Resources, and the International Space University, Diamandis is a tireless advocate for investment in cutting-edge technology and space education.

 

PCMag caught up with Diamandis, who holds a master's degree in aeronautics and astronautics from MIT and a medical degree from Harvard, to discuss his latest project, a Planetary Resources-initiated Kickstarter campaign which seeks to raise $1 million to build and launch "the world's first crowd-funded space telescope."

Orbital Tapped To Build Stratolaunch Rocket | SpaceNews.com

Orbital Tapped To Build Stratolaunch Rocket | SpaceNews.com | AstroAllie5 Space | Scoop.it

WASHINGTON — Stratolaunch Inc., the Huntsville, Ala., company created by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen seeking to develop a low-cost satellite launching system, has given Orbital Sciences Corp. a contract to build the world’s largest air-launched space rocket.

 

In the process, Stratolaunch significantly scaled back the role of Huntsville-based Dynetics in the program.

 

Stratolaunch had initially tapped Dynetics to build a mating and integration system for a liquid-fueled rocket the company had planned to buy from Space Exploration Technologies Corp. (SpaceX) of Hawthorne, Calif. But SpaceX and Stratolaunch parted ways last year, and Dulles, Va.-based Orbital came onboard with a different rocket design that does not require Dynetics hardware.
