While SpaceX makes history at the International Space Station, other companies are progressing in the quest to conquer space flight.

An article in the October 11, 2012 Los Angeles Times looks at Masten Systems, Stratolaunch, XCOR and other enterprises gathered at the Mojave Air & Space Port.

These days, the popularity of the space port has created a scramble to find hangars. Jeff Greason, chief executive of space tourism firm XCOR Aerospace Inc., heard a rumor that there was a hangar opening up. He ran to the main office to sign up.

"When I got there, I was in line behind seven people," Greason said. "It was unbelievable."
