Space News from Virtual Amanda Bush

Here is the September 2014 episode of The Virtual SpaceTV 3D show with Amanda Bush. She begins with a report on NASA's selection of Boeing and SpaceX to provide commercial space transportation of astronauts to the International Space Station. Amazon.com's Jeff Bezos announced that a large engine in development for his Blue Origin company will be used to replace a Russian engine used by the United Launch Alliance (ULA) on the Atlas V rocket. The US Maven and Indian MOM spacecraft reach Mars orbit. Curiosity begins trek up Mount Sharp. And Rosetta gets closer to its comet and selects a spot for its lander. The Siding Spring comet will pass close to Mars in October.

Other Virtual SpaceTV 3D shows are available on the HobbySpace Youtube Channel.

The Virtual SpaceTV 3D shows are created by BINARY SPACE (www.binary-space.com) with story content from HobbySpace.com. These videos are intended as demonstrations of an experimental technique for generating animated presentations. The show was generated autonomously by software according to a text script. The project is described in the Virtual Producer whitepaper (pdf). For further information contact info@binary-space.com.

Boeing and SpaceX to Fly NASA Astroanauts to the ISS

Boeing will use the Atlas V rocket and the new CST-100 crew capsule. SpaceX will use their Falcon 9 rocket and the new Dragon V2. Here are promotional videos from each company about their respective crew transport systems:
