Space Angels!

by | Jan 7, 2008 | Seradata News | 0 comments

Selenian boondocks has gone for a mammoth posting about reusable orbital transportation stuff while this press release is all about a new financing network called Space Angels; sounds like a bad 1970s Glen A. Larson television show to me

Talking of cash and dreams Spacedev has announced that it has met another of its milestones for its unfunded space act agreement with NASA

But here is one company that has all the cash, but has to face harsh reality, and that is Lockheed Martin Space Systems and its recently unveiled Exploration Development Laboratory; that the AIAA/Houston newsletter has profiled in its latest edition (thanks to Hobbyspace.com for flagging this one up) showing the Orion crew exploration vehicle (CEV) mock ups and other work

But I did get to dream a little when I had the chance to play with the Honeywell CEV flight sim at the 2nd NASA/AIAA space exploration conference held in Houston, Texas December 2006

I (in the picture above) bumped the space station first time round, just missing the docking port, managed to slam that puppy right into the ISS second time, but had a great docking on go number three – and thanks to the Honeywell guy on the stand who took the picture for me
