NewSpace Booking Science

http://www.space.com/11220-private-spaceflight-revolution-scientists.html

This is quality stuff, merging research and science with space travel on the private level, getting away from the government and the "big 3" corporate aerospace/defense monopoly that's existed for pretty much the duration of space travel by mankind. Onward and upward. :)

It is nice to see researchers having another option, especially if shuttle missions will be off for a while.
Although while nationalised space industries have had their problems, I seriously don't trust for-profit corporations to do any better. O_O
A challenger appears! Oh, wait...

The rich kids who want to take trips up in one of those thin ships from virgin galactic are clearly bonkers, I hope they enjoy their hefty dose of radiation.
