Apollo Spirit Alive and Well with Commercial Space

Space historian and author Andrew Chaikin, who wrote A Man on the Moon about the Apollo program, has published a guest column on Space News suggesting that the spirit of Apollo is alive and well — with commercial space.

Four decades later the challenge is not just to follow Apollo’s trail into deep space, but to do it affordably and sustainably. That’s not going to happen if NASA continues to be run as a jobs program as much as a space program.

It's well worth your time to read Chaikin's column.
