SpaceX updates

SpaceX is Paypal founder Elon Musk’s private space program. Spacefellowship has a round up of the growth the company is experiencing, the hint that NASA is moving towards a 1930’s postal service styled support of private space (ie: paying a small company to provide cargo service to the space station and maybe then manned service instead of paying for all the tech and research themselves, almost a prize oriented approach), and is already getting some big contracts.

For all that we dog on NASA, NASA’s looking toward SpaceX in this matter is nothing short of revolutionary, and SpaceX’s leads into creating a private space program are pretty amazing.
