SubOrbital Day

It's fitting that my first post on Transterrestrial Musings is on suborbital industry lobbying - it certainly won't be my last on this topic.

The Suborbital Institute has announced that it will be holding an event on May 17-18 to lobby congress on issues affecting the nascent suborbital spaceflight industry. If you are in the DC area or are able to travel to the area please join us. I'll be there, as will various folks from the crowd. The date is chosen so that people planning to attend the May COMSTAC meeting can just come a couple of days early. I've been involved with the SubOrbital Institute since the beginning, and it's a good bunch of people. SubOrbital days are interesting and fun, though there's no doubt that it's real work. I'll post more on the institute and its agenda in the coming weeks.

On the topic of suborbital spaceflight, X-Rocket has revamped their website and they have some very interesting news. They have a working operational demonstrator for their planned vehicle, and they have test flights. Congratulations to X-Rocket and Ed Wright (who is one of the founders of the SubOrbital Institute). Link via HobbySpace.

That's enough for now. I'll post a formal introduction when the current family crisis has passed. I probably won't be able to post more than occasionally until then.
