Dateline October 3, 2006: Space News from the Internet

  • The Lunar Surface Module will be called Artemis. I wish NASA would put out as much new hardware as it does new names.
  • A new survey on space tourism from Spaceport Associates and Incredible Adventures shows. Apparently, $25,000 for suborbital and $500,000 for orbital is the sweet spot as 2/3 of respondents would go at that price.
  • Apparently the FTC has cleared the Boeing Lockheed Martin joint venture, ULA. Help us Jesus. Jeff Foust discusses.
  • A launch ring. Very Heinleinian.
  • The Ares I recovery systems seem to be working.
  • An overview of the three Centennial Challenges taking place at or around the X-Prize Cup this year.
  • SpaceDev won a contract to work on NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter
