Commercial Spaceflight And The Dawning Age of NewSpace

Commercial Spaceflight – The New Right Stuff | Space Angels

It might not seem like it to everybody now, but the exploration of space is the most significant thing we will ever do as a species. Commercial space tourism matters because it is turning something which is the preserve of the extraordinary into something for everyone. Humans were built to go over the hill, they were built to explore. And space is our next hurdle. In the words of Apollo astronaut and Last Man on the Moon, Gene Cernan, “it is our destiny”. Yet more than 43 years since he walked on the Moon, we have not returned. In more than 50 years of space exploration, fewer than 600 people have experienced life away from our planet.

All this will change.
