LYNX


The Space Access Conference in Arizona is covered by bloggers like Henry Cate, Jeff at Personal Spaceflight and Rand of Transterrestrial Musings. XCOR aerospace has leaped to the forefront with plans for their LYNX vehicle. LYNX would carry one pilot and a passenger to altitudes of 200,000 feet. The Spaceship Two being built by Scaled Composites suffers from a long development process and the tragic accident of last year. XCOR expects to fly within 2 years, possibly beating Virgin and other competitors into Space.

You know, it is coll I guess, in a way. To me all this suborbital stuff is like saying to your girl friend "sory hon, can we just cuddle".

Untill a private company geta a pasenger to oORBIT it is just an expensive airplane ride.

Frankly, I am unimpressed by spaceship one, and all the other sub orbitals.

Yes, yes I know its a step. Bla bal bla so was a kite till kitty hawk.

We have yet to see a private space kitty hawk. And space ship one wasnt it, and that my friends is a fact.
