Journal: SpaceFlight - The Future 1

Journal by UID1000000

Space Flight

It's amazing. A new era has began for space flight geeks like me. SpaceShipOne is quickly becoming the privitization superheroes of space flight. MainlyMartian has a pretty good article about what has happened recently.

Frankly, I'm very excited about a lot of new things happening in the near future (ie 1-10 years). Let's do a run down:

1st Private Spaceflight (yay!)
Space Elevator Contest (we'll know by 2010)
Inflatable Space Stations (great potential there)
Public Zero G Flights (at 3K a pop)
Private Moon Base? (I wish!!!)

Now lots of people are wishing they could have seen Charles Lindbergh cross the Atlantic Ocean aren't there? Why would anyone want to miss these things?

I can't wait to see what our lives are going to be like in the future. Where will we be living Mars, the Moon, Earth, some not yet built orbital space station? Mmmm... I'm loving it.
