Below are the latest and some not so new blog posts and news reports that I think are worth that quality time in your busy schedule

Listen to ESA’s post-Automated Transfer Vehicle launch press briefing here

The announcement regarding the Space Exploration Technologies’ US Air Force operationally responsive space contract, which I first reported here, can be found via this link

Jon Goff ponders the meaning of sustainability in space has a link to a report about a proposed $40 million resuable space industry prize in Florida

Aviation Week reports that the deployment of China’s new cryogenic propellant rocket has been delayed again, and that the US government’s Government Accountability Office declaring that the US department of defense has problems with cost overruns and delays in space procurement; perhaps some one might want to point out that the tax dollars GAO is wasting by telling us something we already know?

Space Politics has an interesting report on Democratic nominee candidate for the US presidential election Senator Barak Obama’s response to a question about his previous comments on NASA and education is talking about an apparent increase in the support to make sure the five-year US human spaceflight capability gap is reduced

Chair Force Engineer ponders the X-33

I am at a week long micro air vehicle conference here in the city of Agra, India and won’t be blogging on the Space Shuttle Endeavour mission, as I am focused on that other part of my job, aero tech and blogging about reynolds numbers and miniaturised sensor payloads for IED detection
