Article on SpaceHAB's Apex System

The AIAA Newsletter, Horizon, focuses on SpaceHAB's plan for the COTS program. It is full of lovely pictures and a two page write-up on SpaceHAB's Apex cargo delivery and retrieval program.

According to the article, Apex has been in development for two years and NASA's COTS timing could not have been more perfect. Below is a quote that makes me very happy:

While NASA is one of the more notable customers SPACEHAB is seeking for the Apex service, the company has seen significant interest from various and diverse market sectors. "Space is not just for government agencies. In fact, we have supported amazing technological and medical advances that have taken place in space to only later benefit those of us on earth,"
