CNN to Air Special on Commercial Space

CNN has been advertising a program to air on Sunday July 3 at 8:00 PM and 11:00 PM EDT titled "CNN Presents: Beyond Atlantis."

An article on the CNN web site previews the program. The article features Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic and Elon Musk's SpaceX.

The article concludes:

Entrepreneurs, like Branson and Musk, will press forward on their dreams of space travel, driven by competition from other teams vying for the same dollars in this new space economy.

"That's what competition does: It brings out the best in people," Musk said. "That's why we have the Super Bowl. That's why we have the World Series.

"It'd be kind of boring if there was one team."
