According to VentureBeat, commercial space may be having its "Netscape moment".
The commercial space industry has seen some interesting developments over the past weeks. Statements last week by members of President Obama’s human spaceflight review committee (The Augustine Commission) suggest that commercial providers may be taking a significant role in how NASA accesses low Earth orbit and how missions beyond low Earth orbit use orbiting 'gas stations'. At the same time, two commercial space companies, Virgin Galactic and SpaceX, have received significant investments from well known funds (more on that below), suggesting that capital markets see a fundable new industry developing.
Some of these developments are reminiscent of the Internet industry in the early 90s....
Kentucky Space (surprised?) may well be in the right place at the right time.
