NASA awards $50 million to commercial spaceflight builders

by JoAnne Allen
Feb 2, 2010 Washington -- NASA awarded $50 million to five private firms in a first step to implement President Obama's vision of turning over space transportation to the commercial sector. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said, “We are not abandoning human space flight by any stretch of the imagination. … This represents the entrance of the entrepreneurial mind-set into a field that is poised for rapid growth and new jobs."

Is NASA's New Space Plan Really that Radical?

By Clara Moskowitz
Mar 2
, 2010 -- President Barack Obama's new plan for NASA has been met with some anger and confusion in the weeks since its announcement, drawing sharp objections from critics who view it as a radical vision change for the space agency that would upset the world leadership of the United States in space.

But similar shifts have occurred throughout NASA's more than 50-year history, and some space experts counter that this new plan — which would use commercial spacecraft to fly astronauts in space instead of government spacecraft — is no more radical than those previous changes There's More...

The next Chapter
Space Solar Power must prepare to play an important role in space development. What is that role? While a space power company should be fully focused on delivering clean baseload power to its customers on Earth, it may very well be that products mined and manufactured from lunar regolith may one day be commercially competitive with Earth-sourced hardware. A Lunar Development Authority, for example, an organization of cooperative lunar developers, may speed development of the Moon's resources.This chapter will evaluate how SSP should cooperate with while not being harmed by these and other critical space development agencies, corporations and dynamic interactions. We will publish essays here, at  (email: SunsatMinutemen@googlegroups.com  or visit: http://groups.google.com/group/SunsatMinutemen.)  and elsewhere on these perspectives.
