Commercial Spaceflight And The Dawning Age of NewSpace

Inspiration Mars FISO Presenation : No Pressure for SLS

See on Scoop.itThe NewSpace Daily

Inspiration Mars made a presentation to the Future In Space Working Group last Wednesday,  and wasted little time in dispelling reports that NASA is applying heavy pressure to select the Space Launch System as the launch vehicle.  The presentation, complete with audio, can be found here,  and it is certainly worth a listen.

 

What emerges is a refreshing picture of what many in the space community wishes would take place with the U.S. and other national space agencies as well.   Having determined that a certain desirable goal is feasible, in this case a circumnavigation of Mars with a low energy, free return trajectory,  Inspiration Mars is methodically, but expeditiously wading through the alternatives,  the “trades” to make it happen.
