Commercial Human Spaceflight
Introduction from Florida Today
The issues involved in the development
of commercial human spaceflight and NASA's
relationship to the burgeoning commercial
spaceflight industry are quite complex and
impossible to explain clearly in a few sentences.
For example, it is not widely understood
that commercial spaceflight includes not
just entrepreneurial "NewSpace"
firms like SpaceX
but also legacy companies like Boeing.
In addition to the in-depth text article,
Florida Today added an elaborate interactive
graphic and also the following 30 minute
video program. The Florida Today report
will give you a good overview of the breadth
and depth of commercial human spaceflight
and how NASA can take advantage of it.
