The Space Review

A couple of installments from The Space Review.

From the April 5, 2010 issue: Dwayne Day wonders if people will still flock to sites like Kennedy Spaceport once the big (government) launches are gone. Jeff Foust looks at the demand for launches in the commercial sector.

From the April 12, 2010 issue: Jeff Foust looks at the "maturing" NewSpace industry. Dwayne Day looks at current and future "space coast ghosts". Angela Peura tries to clear up what the "new direction" in space will be. Gemini on steroids? Jonathan Coppersmith also looks at the new direction and decides it isn't bold enough.

From the April 19, 2010 issue: Jeff Foust looks at the reset button. G. Ryan Faith also examines the new direction (still seems like there are more rumors than facts with all these articles). S. Alan Stern (a real rocket scientist) urges the diversification of the "spaceflight portfolio". Dwayne Day continues the Air Launched Sortie series (shades of the film Moonraker with that top illustration!). Finally, Jeff Foust on Leonard Nimoy's thoughts on NASA.
