The Space Review: Commercialization or normalization?

The Space Review: Commercialization or normalization? | Let's go into Space | Scoop.it

Even before the launch, the cover of Aviation Week magazine showed the vehicle on the pad, with the legend, “The Commercial Space Revolution Has Begun.” This event is an important step for crewed launches, all right, but how does it fit the overall context of how the government has met its space launch requirements?

Hope glimmers on Space Coast, one year after shuttle shutdown

Hope glimmers on Space Coast, one year after shuttle shutdown | Let's go into Space | Scoop.it

But a year after NASA ended the space shuttle program, which crippled communities around Cape Canaveral that had grown dependent on government contracts, private spaceflight and other ventures are starting to fill the void.
